Chair of Landslide Research

All over July Saskia participated in a scientific expedition to Herschel Island (Yukon, Canada), led by the Alfred Wegener Institute Potsdam. She carried out geoelectrical measurements in retrogressive thaw slumps – giant geomorphological features…

After a malfunction of the rain sensor since a thunderstorm, we used the stable weather and hiked up to the Hochvogel peak to solve the problem. After changing the data logger, the system worked as it should again. It was a successful maintenance…

For the first time this year after the winter we reached up to the summit of the Hochvogel which is part of the AlpSenseRely project. We (including our colleagues from geodesy, photogrammetry and remote sensing) did monitoring measurements with the…

Prof. Krautblatter was part of the German ZDF documentary with the topic of climate change at the Zugspitze. The part about our research starts at 20:46. Link to the mediathek.

Mountain huts in distress The consequences of the climate crisis also threaten the safety of mountain huts in the high mountains. With the help of science, suitable countermeasures are to be found. But the huts themselves are also causing problems. …

Last week we installed a new deformation camera by Geoprevent at the Hochvogel mountain to achieve a better control of the steep southwestern rock face below the summit. The installation worked out pretty well and was just finished right before the…

With a total running time of 2:02:24 over 5.5km of the five fastest runners of our team Landsliders, we happily reached the 4th place. This placing would not have been possible without the numerous support from the rest of the group on the running…

Three successful days of the 16th Young Geomorphologists Meeting are over and me, Doris Hermle and the board of the German Young Geomorphologists, are very proud about the excellent work presented by the young researchers with fruitful discussions…

Felix Pfluger joined the TUM Landslide Research Group working as a PHD student working on landslides in permafrost environments in the alps. He finished his M.Sc. in Engineering and Hydro Geology at the TUM. With his Master Thesis he investigated the…

The AlpSenseRely project partner „Sicurent“ is testing its GNSS RTK rovers at the high-alpine environment of the Hochvogel summit since summer 2020. Using a new technology the sensors reach an accuracy in the range of millimeters. Thus they are able…
