Sediment Cascades in Alpine Mass Movements


Within the WSL strategic initiative "Climate Change Impacts on Alpine Mass Movements" project, we focus on forecasting changes in the sediment disposition, frequencies and magnitudes of debris flows by making use of the recently released CH2018 scenarios, which provide climate projections up to 2100. The outcome of our work will provide information on sediment accumulations in debris flow areas. Furthermore, the assessment of sediment deposits, frequencies and magnitudes are required for hazard mapping and provide useful information for numerical runout models like RAMMS.
