Mountain Hazards

To evaluate and mitigate mountain hazards, the earth surface processes relating to mountain hazards are studied as both long-term geological and short-term mechanical phenomena. Their work is primarily concerned with prediction of mass movements and their triggers, rock weathering, landscape evolution, hillslope hydrology, hazard mapping methodology.
