Neue Forschungsergebnisse zu Erdrutschdämmen

Large landslides are common occurrences in all mountainous regions, such as the glacially carved Ötz Valley in Tyrol (Austria) or where rivers dissect the landscape, such as the flat to rolling plains of the Peace River region in British Columbia (Canada). Large landslides may fully block a valley, dam the river and create lakes that may persist for decades to millennia. Landslide dams in these two regions range in age from the Young Dryas to recent, in material from crystalline rock to glacial till, and in longevity from months to millennia. These two regions served to study the longevity of landslide dams and to test stability criteria in different materials and settings, and to investigate the long-term landscape impacts.
