Hazards

The Department for Natural Hazards develops practice-oriented methods to safeguard human living environment. The focus is on studies of the formation, development and impact of alpine natural hazards, such as avalanches, mudflows, torrents and landslides. These investigations are an important basis for sustainable protection of the alpine habitat, in particular to ensure that the forest can provide its diverse services to humans and nature even in times of climate change and social change.
