Head: Perry Bartelt

Avalanches, debris flows and rockfalls are everyday occurrences in the mountains. RAMMS is a software package that allows these natural hazard processes to be evaluated and facilitates an assessment of the influences of protective measures. By way of RAMMS, the SLF places a valuable instrument at the disposal of practitioners and researchers alike.

Research of rockfalls

We research rockfalls, rock slope failures, hillslope debris flows and landslides to give people and infrastructure in valleys better protection.
