MORPH at the EGU 2019

The MORPH project was represented at the EGU General Assembly 2019 in Vienna, Austria, 7-12 April. Daniel Hölbling contributed to studies on the change of debris cover on glaciers of the Eastern Alps and on the application of convolutional neural networks for detecting earthquake-triggered landslides. Moreover, meetings with the collaboration partners from Iceland were held […]

Presentations at the 38th EARSeL Symposium

The 38th EARSeL Symposium took place in Chania, Crete, Greece, from 9-12 July 2018. The presentation of the MOPRH team focused on rock avalanche deposits on glaciers and how they can be mapped through time, comparing different sensors (optical, SAR) and different resolutions (HR and VHR). The presented approach allows conclusions for the selection of […]

citizenMorph project

The citizenMorph (Observation and Reporting of Landscape Dynamics by Citizens) project, which is an expansion of the FWF main project MORPH, started in July 2018. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) as part of the Top Citizen Science (TCS) funding initiative, which aims to include “citizen science” components in ongoing FWF projects. […]

Second field trip to Iceland

During a second field trip to Iceland in June 2018, the MORPH project team visited the northern parts of the country, which are characterized by mass displacements, surface deformation and volcanic activity. Also, a great variety of geomorphological features is present in this area. The field trip focused especially on the validation of remote sensing […]
