    • A new concept for estimating the influence of vegetation on throughfall kinetic energy using aerial laser scanning 

      Senn, Johannes AntenorORCIDiD; Fassnacht, Fabian EwaldORCIDiD; Eichel, JanaORCIDiD; Seitz, SteffenORCIDiD; Schmidtlein, Sebastian (Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, 2020-02-17)
      Soil loss caused by erosion has enormous economic and social impacts. Splash effects of rainfall are an important driver of erosion processes; however, effects of vegetation on splash erosion are still not fully understood. ...
    • Californian Wildfire Smoke Over Europe: A First Example of the Aerosol Observing Capabilities of Aeolus Compared to Ground‐Based Lidar 

      Baars, HolgerORCIDiD; Radenz, MartinORCIDiD; Floutsi, Athena AugustaORCIDiD; Engelmann, RonnyORCIDiD; Althausen, DietrichORCIDiD; Heese, BirgitORCIDiD; Ansmann, AlbertORCIDiD; Flament, Thomas; Dabas, AlainORCIDiD; Trapon, Dimitri; Reitebuch, OliverORCIDiD; Bley, Sebastian; Wandinger, UllaORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2021-04-28)
      In September 2020, extremely strong wildfires in the western United States of America (i.e., mainly in California) produced large amounts of smoke, which was lifted into the free troposphere. These biomass‐burning‐aerosol ...
    • Characterization and Evolution of Organized Shallow Convection in the Downstream North Atlantic Trades 

      Schulz, HaukeORCIDiD; Eastman, RyanORCIDiD; Stevens, BjornORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2021-08-26)
      Four previously identified patterns of meso‐scale cloud organization in the trades — called Sugar, Gravel, Flowers, and Fish — are studied using long‐term records of ground‐based measurements, satellite observations and ...
    • Contextualizing land‐use and land‐cover change with local knowledge: A case study from Pokot Central, Kenya 

      Petersen, Maike; Bergmann, Christoph; Roden, Paul; Nüsser, MarcusORCIDiD (Land Degradation & Development, 2021-05-12)
      Rural communities in the drylands of sub‐Saharan Africa (SSA) derive their livelihoods primarily from their natural resource base. Unprecedented changes in these environments over the past few decades are likely to intensify ...
    • Critical Soil Moisture Derived From Satellite Observations Over Europe 

      Denissen, Jasper M.C.ORCIDiD; Teuling, Adriaan J.ORCIDiD; Reichstein, MarkusORCIDiD; Orth, RenéORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2020)
      Evapotranspiration (ET) is a crucial quantity through which land surface conditions can impact near-surface weather and vice versa. ET can be limited by energy or water availability. The transition between water- and ...
    • Digitale Datenerfassung zur Flächenverwaltung von Mooren mit Georadar und Photogrammetrie 

      Hofer, Bernd (TELMA - Berichte der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Moor- und Torfkunde; Band 37; 2007)
      Abstract: The methods of Ground Penetrating Radar and Photogrammetry are both excellent instruments for digital data collection. Ground Penetrating Radar in use on site with GPS-measurement delivers high definition digital ...
    • Hyperspectral outcrop models for palaeoseismic studies 

      Kirsch, Moritz; Lorenz, Sandra; Zimmermann, Robert; Andreani, Louis; Tusa, Laura; Pospiech, Solveig; Jackisch, Robert; Khodadadzadeh, Mahdi; Ghamisi, Pedram; Unger, Gabriel; Hödl, Philip; Gloaguen, Richard; Middleton, Maarit; Sutinen, Raimo; Ojala, Antti; Mattila, Jussi; Nordbäck, Nicklas; Palmu, Jukka-Pekka; Tiljander, Mia; Ruskeeniemi, Timo (The Photogrammetric Record, 2019)
      The traditional study of palaeoseismic trenches, involving logging, stratigraphic and structural interpretation, can be time consuming and affected by biases and inaccuracies. To overcome these limitations, a new workflow ...
    • Linking Large‐Eddy Simulations to Local Cloud Observations 

      Schemann, VeraORCIDiD; Ebell, KerstinORCIDiD; Pospichal, BernhardORCIDiD; Neggers, RoelORCIDiD; Moseley, Christopher; Stevens, BjornORCIDiD (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, 2020-12-05)
      In order to enhance our understanding of clouds and their microphysical processes, it is crucial to exploit both observations and models. Local observations from ground‐based remote sensing sites provide detailed information ...
    • Modeling the Microwave Emission of Snow on Arctic Sea Ice for Estimating the Uncertainty of Satellite Retrievals 

      Rostosky, P.ORCIDiD; Spreen, G.ORCIDiD; Gerland, S.ORCIDiD; Huntemann, M.; Mech, M. (Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 2020)
      Within a rapidly changing Arctic climate system, snow on sea ice is an important climate parameter. A common method to derive snow depth on an Arctic-wide scale is based on passive microwave satellite observations. However, ...
    • Rock Glacier Characteristics Under Semiarid Climate Conditions in the Western Nyainqêntanglha Range, Tibetan Plateau 

      Buckel, JohannesORCIDiD; Reinosch, Eike; Voigtländer, AnneORCIDiD; Dietze, MichaelORCIDiD; Bücker, MatthiasORCIDiD; Krebs, Nora; Schroeckh, Ruben; Mäusbacher, Roland; Hördt, AndreasORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface, 2022-01-07)
      Rock glaciers are receiving increased attention as a potential source of water and indicator of climate change in periglacial landscapes. They consist of an ice‐debris mixture, which creeps downslope. Although rock glaciers ...
    • Size–frequency distribution of shallow landslides in the Black Forest, Germany
