OP2342 Early warning of regional-scale landslide hazard under climate change

NERC ONE Planet DTP. The UK is facing more intense and frequent extreme weather conditions due to climate change, leading to dramatically increased landslide hazards and in turn immense threat to the economy and life. Read more

Landslides and Lasers: Fibre Optic Distributed Sensing of Landslide Initiation

Landslides pose a significant geological risk to human infrastructure and life. With changing weather patterns and a likely increase in the intensity of drought and downpour events, there is a pressing need to understand the sensitivity of landslides to a range of initiation mechanisms. Read more

Glacier Extremes: The Role of Glacier Snow Albedo Feedbacks From Wildfires and Heatwaves in Enhancing Present and Future Mass Loss in Alaska

Glaciers are rapidly losing mass, which impacts sea-level rise, water resources, ecosystems, climate, culture, and tourism. Improving our understanding of the drivers of mass change and our ability to project mass loss is therefore essential to support adaptation and mitigation efforts. Read more
