Brief communication: Post-wildfire rockfall risk in the eastern Alps

Melzner, Sandra; Shtober-Zisu, Nurit; Katz, Oded; Wittenberg, Lea

In the eastern Alps, no previous research focused on the impact of wildfires on the occurrence of rockfalls. The investigation of wildfires and post-wildfire rockfalls gains new importance with respect to changes in weather extremes and rapid social developments such as population growth and tourism. The present work describes a wildfire that occurred in August 2018 in a famous world heritage site in Austria. Indicators of fire severity and rockfall occurrence during and after the fire are described.
