Hazards

Research into natural hazards is gaining new importance from the perspective of climate change and social development. Our institute investigates avalanches, floods, erosion as well as landslides and researches practice-oriented methods for the sustainable protection of the human habitat. The multi-perspective view of catchment areas with special consideration of the forest has been of central importance since the foundation of the institute. With the help of modern technology we research the basics and develop instruments for risk management in different regions.
