  1. Strategies for an optimal management of rockfall protection forests 

    Maurer, Sabrina; Breschan, Jochen R.; Heinimann, Hans Rudolf (2017)
    A forest on the hillslope can stop a remarkable share of falling rocks and thus protect lives and human assets from damage. Optimal forest states can be specified based on the knowledge about forest-rockfall interactions. Those states change with rock size, e.g., a high stem number of relatively small trees (like a thicket) is preferred for small rocks whereas trees in the timber stage are preferred for bigger ones. Foresters aim at ...

  2. Separating warming-induced drought from drought-induced warming 

    Roderick, Michael L.; Wolf, Sebastian; Yin, Dongqin (2017)
    Geophysical Research Abstracts
    A very widely held public perception is that increasing temperature is a cause of “drying” and drought. The atmospheric-focused meteorologic community has often assumed that the warmer temperatures increase evaporation and that this contributes to worsening drought via atmospheric demand. On the other hand, the agricultural and hydrologic scientific communities have a very different interpretation linked to water supply, with the lack of ...

  3. Carbon-Water Interactions during Warm Spring and Summer Drought 

    Wolf, Sebastian; Keenan, Trevor F.; Fisher, Joshua B.; et al. (2017)
    Geophysical Research Abstracts
    Warmer temperatures during spring and a higher prevalence of drought during summer are projected in a changing climate. In 2012, the US experienced the warmest spring on record and the most severe drought since the Dust Bowl period. It is crucial to understand the impact of such events on carbon-water interactions in terrestrial ecosystems to better predict their response in a future climate. We combined an extensive network of direct ...

  4. Subcanopy Flux Measurements in Forest Ecosystems 

    Wolf, Sebastian; Paul-Limoges, Eugenie; Baldocchi, Dennis (2017)
    Geophysical Research Abstracts
    Eddy-covariance measurements of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy provide direct evidence for the biosphere-atmosphere exchange at the ecosystem scale. Such continuous measurements are typically performed in the atmospheric surface layer above the canopy and integrate fluxes over the entire ecosystem within the footprint. Forest ecosystems, however, have complex vertical structures composed of several layers with different functional ...

  8. Automatic selection of contiguous forest reserves 

    Maurer, Sabrina; Bont, Leo G.; Heinimann, Hans Rudolf (2016)
    A well-performing network of forest reserve areas can support the conservation of biodiversity in densely populated and intensively used landscapes. Reserve area quality, network connectivity as well as the existence of some large reserve areas are suitable indicators for performance assessment. Amongst others, optimal location of the latter can be a cumbersome task in those landscapes because suitable areas are rare. Here, we will present ...

  9. Suitability of low-frequency axial transmission acoustics as a screening method for bone mass density-defined osteoporosis 

    Vogl, Florian; Friesenbichler, Bernd; Gerber, Hans; et al. (2017)
    Purpose: Osteoporosis is a ubiquitous challenge for society, health care providers and the economy in general, affecting 200 million women worldwide [1]. The gold-standard for diagnosing osteoporosis is dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), which due the involved radiation exposure is unsuited for routine check-ups. This, together with DXA’s limited availability caused by expensive equipment, low portability, and the need for highly trained ...
