Research Group
Rock Glacier Survey

The Research Group Geomorphology is focussing on earth surface dynamics and human impacts in various environments. We apply methods of geochronology, near surface geophysics, high resolution remote sensing as well as classic methods of field geomorphology. Our current research project investigate proglacial lakes, mountain permafrost, sediment budgets, late- and postglacial landscape dynamics, long term landscape evolution, rock slope instability and natural hazard management.

 

The technical equipment includes ground-penetrating radar, multi-channel DC-resistivity, refraction seismics, differential GPS, terrestrial laserscanner and sedimentologic, hydrologic and climatologic surveying instruments.

Our research-driven teaching activities in Physical Geography focus specifically on theoretical and applied approaches in geomorphology, global environmental change issues and natural hazards.

We are involved in the bachelor programme Geography and responsible for the master programme Applied Geomorphology and Alpine Geohazards at the University of Salzburg (see flyer, currently in german only).
