The GLOMOS Team, in collaboration with colleagues in Eurac Research's Institute for Earth Observation and external partners, has conducted a research project analyzing available literature on risk perception in relation to climate change, and its impact on mountain regions worldwide.

The literature review was performed by an interdisciplinary team of natural, social, and humanistic scientists and seeks to provide an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of which factors influencing risk perception in mountain regions are addressed in the current literature. This research was undertaken in response to a call for papers to contribute to the Sixth Assessment Report of Working Group II of the IPCC, and results have been published in the peer-reviewed "Science of the Total Environment" journal.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
