On our last day in the Ötztal Alps, we had an exciting excursion from Obergurgl to Ramolhaus on 3006 m a.s.l. On our way up we could directly explore glacial history by passing the historical extents and related moraines of the retreating Gurgler glacier. The students also learned about geoarcheology and settlement history in the [...]

For the fourth consecutive year, the 3DGeo team acquired the rock glacier Äußeres Hochebenkar in the Austrian Ötztal by terrestrial laser scanning. This adds another point cloud to the multitemporal dataset to observe how the active rock glacier changes over the years.
In an elevation over 2600 m a.s.l., the complex terrain on and around the [...]

This morning, the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung (RNZ) published an article (in German) about our research on 4D LiDAR for snow cover monitoring. The angle for the article by Doris Burger is the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus near the summit of the Zugspitze, where members of the 3DGeo recently acquired a highly temporal 3D time series dataset of [...]
