The course focuses on the following hazard processes and is structured into the following lessons:
•Forest and natural hazards
•Torrent processes
•Natural hazard management and vulnerability


Focus is given on the impacts of extreme meteorological events and climate change on alpine hazards of different types, such as snow avalanches, landslides and torrential processes, and on disturbance regimes in alpine forests (forest fire, insect outbreaks and storm damages) which interrelate with gravitational hazards. Particular focus will be placed on the fundamental processes of these natural hazards, the relationship to climate change, and the associated changes in the future. Understanding multi-hazards and cascading processes is a key content of this course, as well as aspects of natural hazard management and vulnerability.
