Open AccessRisk mitigation for debris flows at regional scale is a challenge. Early warning systems are helpful in depicting the time and the location of future debris flows so that emergency responders can act in advance before the ...
Flood consequences of land-use changes at a ski resort: overcoming a geomorphological threshold (Portainé, Eastern Pyrenees, Iberian Peninsula) Furdada Bellavista, Glòria; Victoriano, Ane; Díez Herrero, Andrés; Palau Berastegui, Rosa Maria; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel (2020-02)
Open AccessThe sensitive mountain catchment of Portainé (Eastern Pyrenees, Iberian Peninsula) has recently experienced a significant change in its torrential dynamics due to human disturbances. The emplacement of a ski resort at the ...
Influence of the mapping unit for regional landslide early warning systems: comparison between pixels and polygons in Catalonia (NE Spain) Palau Berastegui, Rosa Maria; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2020-09)
Open AccessThis work presents a prototype landslide early warning system (LEWS) adapted to real-time performance over the region of Catalonia (NE Spain). The system uses high-resolution rainfall information obtained from weather radar ...
Landslide and debris flow warning at regional scale. A real-time system using susceptibility mapping, radar rainfall and hydrometeorological thresholds Palau Berastegui, Rosa Maria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-09-23)
Open AccessRainfall triggered shallow slides and debris flows constitute a significant hazard that causes substantial economic losses and fatalities worldwide. Regional-scale risk mitigation for these processes is challenging. ...
Multidisciplinary analysis of the torrential processes affecting the basin of Portainé (Eastern Pyrenees) Palau Berastegui, Rosa Maria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-04)
Restricted access - author's decisionDebris flows and other torrential processes represent a significant geomorphological hazard in mountainous regions. This research focuses on the triggering mechanisms and flow dynamic. The multidisciplinary approach ...
