MOREXPERT II – From climate impact monitoring to dynamic risk management

Permafrost degradation critically affects the stability of high-mountain rock slopes. In the context of climate change instability of rock faces is therefore becoming an increasingly important risk factor. MOREXPERT I has established a comprehensive monitoring site for permafrost and rockfall interaction at the Kitzsteinhorn (3.203 m), Austria.

MOREXPERT II continues and extends the systemic long-term monitoring of local surface, subsurface, and atmospheric conditions. In order to meet the requirements of a complete climate change adaptation cycle, monitoring data has to be transferred into information for different stakeholders. The overall aim is to develop a dynamic risk management system on an individual operational unit (e.g. company) that is able to manage spatio-temporally changing environmental conditions.

The project will contribute to improved risk awareness building, measure planning, infrastructure reliability, and most important: health and life protection.
