PermaNET: Methods sheets / operational approaches for detection and monitoring of slope movements and ground temperature in permafrost areas

Target groups
Scientists; specific institutions.

Area of application
The methods can be applied in all permafrost areas in the Alps for detection and monitoring of slopes movement and as a support to the analysis of the processes. It is however important to underline that areas influenced by permafrost degradation phenomena are not so wide, thus the areas of application are limited. Despite the limited area of application, the phenomena are relevant because of their potential effects and remarkable influence on hazard and risk situations.

Time frame
The six methods were established during the project timeframe.

Keywords
Related to the type of result: method sheet; operational approach; SWOT analysis; mapping.
Related to the thematic of the result: risk management/prevention; hazards; permafrost; permafrost degradation; slope movement; glacier, rock glacier, landslide.

Accessibility
Open access.

Transferability and re-usability
The methods described can be applied to high mountain without adaptation required.

Sector policies addressed
Spatial development; land use planning and managing; territorial planning & infrastructure; natural risk management; socio-economic activities (tourism; ski resorts, …) in high mountain areas and also in valleys at long distance from the source area.
