Author(s): J. von Ruette, P. Lehmann, D. Or
Produced by: Institute of Terrestrial Ecosystems, ETH
Language by: English
Keywords: shallow landslides;progressive failure;catchment scale, rainfall

Rainfall-induced shallow landslides may occur abruptly without distinct precursors and could span a wide range of soil mass released during a triggering event. We present a rainfall-induced landslide-triggering model for steep catchments with surface....

Bangladesh is one of those countries that are most vulnerable to tropical cyclones. In recent decades, cyclone mitigations by the Government of Bangladesh and international organizations have greatly increased the coastal communities' resistance to c....


8: Quantitative risk analysis of urban flooding in lowland areas

Author(s): Ten Veldhuis, J.A.E.
Produced by: Delft University of Technology
Language by: English
Keywords: flood risk, urban, lowland

Urban flood risk analyses suffer from a lack of quantitative historical data on flooding incidents. Data collection takes place on an ad hoc basis and is usually restricted to severe events. The resulting data deficiency renders quantitative assessme....


9: From gravel to sand: Downstream fining of bed sediments in the lower river Rhine

Author(s): Roy Frings
Produced by: Utrecht University
Language by: English
Keywords: sediment transport, Rhine, dunes

Given my fascination for mountainous areas, it was a rather daring action to start a PhD research on lowland river dynamics, but I have never regretted the choice. Rivers, their landscapes, morphology and deposits turned out to be equally enthralling....
