Research project "Characterizing hydro-meteorological extremes from a societal perspective"
Extreme hydro-meteorological events often affect the economy, social life, health, and well-being. One indicator for the impact of extreme events on society is the concurrently increased societal attention. Such increases can help to measure and understand the vulnerability of the society to extreme events, and to evaluate the relevance of an event, which is important for disaster research and risk management. In this study, we analyzed and characterized hydro-meteorological extreme events from a societal impact perspective.
Intership on BAIE group "Using terrestrial laser scanning for estimation of main tree structural parameters and their changes"
Analyzing tree structural features and capturing their temporal dynamic is challenging but crucial for determining key state variables related to plant function, management practices, and aboveground vegetation stocks. Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) provides a mean for representing those key variables in three-dimensional space and through time.
