A review of extreme natural hazard events in the Austrian Alps

The ExtremA 2018 project aims to compile the current knowledge on extreme natural hazard events in the Austrian Alps, their causes and consequences, as well as possible climatic and societal influences in a comprehensive, scientifically robust, yet easily understood assessment report. Leading national and international experts are compiling information for event documentation and state of the art reports on their specific fields of expertise. Natural hazards covered include meteorological, hydrological, gravitational, and geophysical processes, their interactions, as well as societal aspects of extreme natural hazard events, such as land use, vulnerability, and economic considerations. The assessment report is intended to be a valuable information resource for stakeholders and decision makers and, as such, shall support the political discourse on appropriate management of risk associated with future extreme natural hazard events in the Austrian Alps.
