about

This book provides a detailed overview on methods used for the dating of past torrential activity on fans and cones and fosters the discussion on the impact of past and potential future climate change on torrential processes. The book has a clear focus on the practical applications of these methods, complemented by case studies. The limits of each dating method in case of excessive natural and human interventions on fans and cones are shown.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book contributes to fill the gap between scientists and engineers and planers by providing a detailed overview on methods for the dating of historical events and by fostering the discussion on the impact of past and potential future climatic changes on torrential processes. . an excellent book, which will help researchers, as well as engineers and planers to understand the complex processes of torrents in the Alpine realm. This publication will be a useful guide in the daily challenges of hazard and risk assessment." (Thomas Hofmann, Jahrbuch der Geologischen Bundesanstalt, Vol. 152 (1-4), December, 2012)
