Universität Innsbruck


Die Arbeitsgruppe befasst sich mit Fragen aus den Forschungsbereichen Bodenkunde und Landschaftsökologie. Die Untersuchungen finden vor allem in den Alpen statt, aber auch im Alpenvorland, in urbanen Räumen, in den Karpaten, auf Grönland und in Bolivien. Einige der Themen beinhalten angewandte Aspekte. Zudem bestehen Kooperationen mit KollegInnen der Fachbereiche Entwicklungsforschung, Raumplanung, Geschichtswissenschaft, Archäologie, Mineralogie, Geologie, Geotechnik, Ökologie, Botanik, Mikrobiologie und Bodenzoologie.


  • ERODYN: A new method for measuring the tensile strength of grassland top soil Members of the ERODYN team at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano have developed a novel in-situ method for measuring the surface-parallel tensile strength of the top soil. The densely interwoven roots of herbaceous vegetation can form a strong reinforcement in the top soil (“surface-mat”), and this may be an important factor for resistance against small-scale shallow […] (2020-01-27 07:15:52)
  • ERODYN: New publication: Object-based point cloud analysis for landslide and erosion monitoring A new paper in the journal Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing presents methods for landslide and erosion monitoring based on terrestrial laser scanning point clouds. The 3D approach combines deformation detection and a geomorphological object classification automatically. This enhances the analysis and interpretability of a point cloud time series for erosion and landslide assessment. Mayr, […] (2019-06-24 14:05:37)
  • ERODYN: EGU conference contribution: UAV-based hyperspectral techniques for monitoring shallow erosion Preliminary results from an ERODYN experiment will be presented with a poster at this years EGU (European Geosciences Union General Assembly) in Vienna: Lloyd, J., Mejia-Aguilar, A., Tonin, R., Loebmann, M., Gild, Ch., Mayr, A., and Sonnenschein, R.: UAV-based hyperspectral techniques for monitoring shallow erosion in alpine pastures Wednesday 10 April, 08:30–10:15, Hall A (2019-04-08 20:19:12)
  • ERODYN: Traineeship / MSc thesis in hyperspectral sensing of vegetation Eurac Research (Bozen, Italy) is looking for a MSc student / trainee within the ERODYN project. The traineeship will focus on hyperspectral data acquisition and processing to characterize grassland vegetation in the context of erosion susceptibility. There will likely be the possibility to write a MSc thesis on this topic after the traineeship. More info […] (2019-04-08 17:07:31)
  • ERODYN: Field work for vegetation assessment This summer the team from the University of Bozen has sampled vegetation at test sites in the Nature Park Puez – Geisler, aiming at a spatial analysis and an assessment of different types of grassland vegetation with respect to landuse and erosion susceptibility. At the same site the EURAC team was flying with an unmanned […] (2018-10-10 10:16:57)
