  • Settlement extension into endangered areas has led to increased losses through natural disasters in recent years. Despite the significant role of human activity for the development of losses, only few studies focus on the quantitative evolution of natural hazard risk over time. In this study, a quantitative multi-temporal risk approach is applied to analyse the debris flow risk evolution from 1950 to 2014 in Sörenberg, Switzerland. Three hazard scenarios are modelled with RAMMS debris flow 1.6… CONTINUE READING
