Gemeinsam mit Lisa Maurer und Klaus Tochtermann vom KNOW-Center in Graz und P. Pachaury aus Indien habe ich an einem neuen Proposal für eine Konferenz gearbeitet. Es geht um als neues Tool statt der üblichen Wettermodelle. Hier der (gekürzte) Abstract:
Data Mining as Tool for Protection Against Avalanches and Landslides
Maurer, L ., Klingler, Ch ., Pachaury, P ., Tochtermann, K.
Avalanches of snow, stone or mud (landslides) have always posed serious dangers both to individuals and to villages in mountainous regions all over the world. Dramatic changes in weather patterns, often attributed to global warming, are endangering age-old knowledge parameters. We claim in this paper that the techniques to handle this new situation that have been deployed so far were often based on physics, on models of terrain, temperature, precipitation, etc. We believe that newer approaches that can be summarized under the buzz-word of data mining will gain more and more importance. One of the basic approaches we recommend we call „after event data mining“.
