Abstract
Slope mass-wasting induced by rainfall and associated sediment transfer have multiple impacts on mountainous regions.With ongoing climate change mean and maximum temperature as well as extreme precipitation events are expected to continue rising considerably over the next decades. In a multidisciplinary research project, we investigate the impacts of climate change at different scales. Special attention is paid to the soil-plants-atmosphere interactions (SPAI) under climate and vegetation change...
