Mass Movements in Austria

In Alpine countries such as Austria, mass movements cause significant damage.

They occur when slopes become unstable either through human interference (e.g. along roads) or through climate change. Frequently, they happen in areas which have been unstable already in the past.

Documentation of actual and historic movements is therefore fundamental in order to minimize future damage. The Geological Survey has the legal mandate for this documentation.
