Process-oriented analysis of erosion dynamics in the Alps with orthophoto time series and multi-spectral close-range sensing



Shallow erosion areas (“Blaiken”) occur frequently on steep grassland slopes in the Alps. The aim of this project is to detect and classify different erosion process types using multi-temporal remote sensing data at different scales. Process dynamics are analysed spatially and temporally to enhance the geomorphological understanding of shallow erosion processes and their drivers. The project is funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Mayr A.).
