  • ERODYN: Open-access paper: Shallow erosion on grassland slopes in the European Alps – Geomorphological classification, spatio-temporal analysis, and understanding snow and vegetation impacts In a recent open access publication in the journal Geomorphology we summarize the current knowledge on the main geomorphological processes for Alpine grassland erosion, namely shallow landslides and abrasion by snow movements as well as combinations of both processes. We shortly discuss the basic and variable controlling factors and further present a comprehensive approach for […] (2021-03-26 09:34:34)
  • ERODYN: Drone-based laser scanning for erosion monitoring Fig. 1: ULS system set up and flight at a 48-ha test site in the Dolomites (Italy). Within the ERODYN project, we are using a drone (the RIEGL RiCOPTER system) equipped with the VUX-1LR laser scanner to produce high resolution 3D point clouds and derive detailed digital terrain models for automated geomorphological analyses. The aim […] (2020-09-22 08:39:45)
  • ERODYN: How does vegetation influence the susceptibility of grassland slopes towards shallow erosion? Vegetation plays (amongst other factors) an important role for the stability of slopes near their surface. Not only woody vegetation (i.e. shrubs and trees) but also herbaceous vegetation (dominating grasslands) can enhance the resistance of soil against shallow erosion. Being to some extent controllable via land management (in contrast to other factors, such as topography […] (2020-09-08 10:01:38)
  • ERODYN: A new method for measuring the tensile strength of grassland topsoil 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 topsoil. 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 erosion, […] (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)
  • ERODYN: Terrestrial laser scanning of eroded areas A grassland slope has been surveyed with a terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) to map eroded areas and their morphology. The detailed terrain data from TLS will also be integrated with multi-/hyperspectral data from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and botanical surveys from field plots to map and analyse vegetation types.

  • ERODYN: Conference paper online (ISPRS Archives) Our contribution to the ISPRS Symposium in Riva del Garda is now online in the ISPRS Archives, the series of peer-reviewed proceedings published by the International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (open access): Mayr, A., Rutzinger, M. & Geitner, C. (2018): Multitemporal analysis of objects in 3D point clouds for landslide monitoring. The International […] (2018-06-18 05:31:16)
