Field Focus Sites

Taroko National Park

Taiwan is one of Earth's most interesting locations, because high uplift rates meet with powerful taifuns. Therefore we set up an observation network of high precision meteorological, hydrological and seismic stations.

C³ - Cliff Coast Collapse Detection Network

Cliff coasts distinctively separate the terrestrial and marine realms and adjust catastrophically by slope collapses with severe consequences for both of these realms. To better understand collapse timing and drivers, we seismically monitor the chalk cliff section of Rügen, Germany.

Reintal Rock Fall Focus Site

Rock falls are important agents of erosion that shape the topography of bedrock slopes and often threaten life and infrastructure. Therefore a profound understanding of spatial and temporal rock fall patterns and of rock fall triggers is of high importance.
