The Chair of Landslide Research joined the online European Rock Mechanics Symposium (EUROCK, 21-24 September 2021) with two articles, published in IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science. Here the two contributions High alpine geotechnical real time monitoring and... [mehr]

Doris Hermle arrived two weeks ago in Rome at NHAZCA s.r.l. (Natural HAZards Control and Assessment), a startup company of La Sapienza University. NHAZCA is an international leader in the analysis and monitoring of natural hazards and large infrastructure, and also in risk... [mehr]

Matthias Hofner joined the TUM Landslide Group as a researcher working on the assessment of the rockfall hazard in the Partnachklamm gorge on behalf of the municipal council of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. He finished his B.Sc. in Geosciences and M.Sc. in Engineering and Hydro Geology... [mehr]

The German working group Geomorphology is organising the Mid-European Geomorphology Meeting 2021, taking place Nov. 6-10 in Munich. Of course, the current situation still requires flexibility. All information can be found here. We are looking forward to host a nice conference! ... [mehr]

Carolin Kiefer joined the TUM Landslide Research Group as a PhD student working on debris flow dynamics in the Northern European Alps. She completed her BSc in Applied Geosciences at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and her MSc in Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology at the... [mehr]

Electrical Resistivity Tomography data collected at the permafrost-affected and unstable Steintaelli Ridge (3100 m a.s.l., Matter Valley, Switzerland) in the last 13 years were inverted with a 3D time-lapse scheme in BERT. Thanks to the temperature-resistivity laboratory... [mehr]

Congratulations to Dr. Sibylle Knapp for her outstanding thesis work on rock-slope failures impacting lakes, which has been awarded the Dissertation Award 2021 of the Munich Geocenter. Through her highly innovative methodological approach, Sibylle can decipher multistage event... [mehr]

Our group is presenting 11 topics at this years EGU. See the list below and join our sessions! EGU21-8011 | vPICO presentations | NH6.7 Multi-temporal analysis of optical remote sensing for time-series displacement of gravitational mass movements, Sattelkar, Obersulzbach Valley,... [mehr]

Erosion, as a key control of landslide dynamics, significantly increases the destructive power by rapidly amplifying its volume, mobility and impact energy. Mobility is directly linked to the threat posed by an erosive landslide. No clear-cut mechanical condition has been... [mehr]
