Landslide Hazard Mapping in Austria

Bernhard Klingseisen, Philip Leopold

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    In Austria many manmade objects such as roads and buildings are vulnerable to landslides caused by heavy rainstorms. These result from climate change and changes in geological structure. Using GIS, the authors analysed the characteristics of landslides and developed a prediction method. Recent events have demonstrated how the method can support decision-makers in urban and regional planning.
