Analysis and dynamic modeling of a moraine failure and glacier lake outburst flood at Ventisquero Negro, Patagonian Andes (Argentina)
Summary Although moraine dams are inherently prone to failure because of their often weak structure, loose internal composition and lack of an engineered spillway, the understanding of dam breachingExpand

Glacial lakes in the Indian Himalayas--from an area-wide glacial lake inventory to on-site and modeling based risk assessment of critical glacial lakes.
Glacial lake hazards and glacial lake distributions are investigated in many glaciated regions of the world, but comparably little attention has been given to these topics in the Indian Himalayas. InExpand

Magnitude-frequency relationships of debris flows - a case study based on field surveys and tree-ring records
Debris-flow activity in a watershed is usually defined in terms of magnitude and frequency. While magnitude–frequency (M–F) relations have long formed the basis for risk assessment and engineeringExpand

How much of the real avalanche activity can be captured with tree rings? An evaluation of classic dendrogeomorphic approaches and comparison with historical archives
In snow-rich areas, snow avalanches endanger settlements and cause heavy damage to infrastructure or transportation routes. In wooded avalanche paths, dendrogeomorphology has been used extensively toExpand

Differentiating past events on a cone influenced by debris-flow and snow avalanche activity – a dendrogeomorphological approach
Dendrogeomorphology was used to investigate past events on a cone affected by both debris flows and snow avalanches. We report on results of 520 cores from 251 injured Larix decidua Mill. and PiceaExpand
