New Article in the Journal of Hydrology

Thomas Zieher, Junior Researcher at the IGF, and his colleagues have published new results from their work on shallow landsliding in the Journal of Hydrology. Physically-based dynamic modelling of shallow landslide susceptibility rests on several assumptions and simplifications. However, the applicability of physically-based models is only rarely tested in the field at the appropriate scale. The paper presents results of a spray irrigation experiment conducted on a plot of 100 m² on an Alpine slope susceptible to shallow landsliding.
