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 […]

Poster presentations at EGU 2018

Two posters with outcomes of MORPH were presented at the EGU General Assembly 2018 in Vienna, Austria, 8-13 April. Barbara Friedl presented a poster about the Delineation of rock avalanche deposits on glaciers from different remote sensing data. Within this study we tested the applicability of optical, SAR and DEM data for object-based delineation of […]
