    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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.; Spreen, G.; Gerland, S.; 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, ...
    • Tillage erosion as an important driver of in‐field biomass patterns in an intensively used hummocky landscape 

      Öttl, Lena Katharina; Wilken, Florian; Auerswald, Karl; Sommer, Michael; Wehrhan, Marc; Fiener, PeterORCIDiD (Land Degradation & Development, 2021-05-07)
      Tillage erosion causes substantial soil redistribution that can exceed water erosion especially in hummocky landscapes under highly mechanized large field agriculture. Consequently, truncated soil profiles can be found on ...
