Land-cover Changes Do not Impact Glacier Loss
Land-cover Changes Do not Impact Glacier Loss
A new study shows that land-cover changes, in particular deforestation, in the vicinity of glaciers do not have an impact on glacier loss. However, the study, in which Innsbruck climate researcher were directly involved, also shows that deforestation decreases precipitation in mid elevation zones, which affects the quality of life of the population living in the surrounding areas.

Keeping track of earthquakes
Keeping track of earthquakes
The quake in Japan released one million times more energy than the strongest earthquakes known from the Inn valley. Medieval earthquakes have caused remarkable damage in the Inn valley though. A research group at the Institute for Geology and Palaeontology under supervision of Prof. Rainer Brandner investigates geological reasons, in cooperation with the Seismological Survey of Austria.
