General Overview

CCAMM – Climate Change Impacts on Alpine Mass Movements – is a WSL research program that was launched in January 2018. It combines the knowledge of various research teams of the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL), the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich), the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

The WSL research program CCAMM researches mass movements and the impact of climate change in mountain areas. It improves the knowledge base on the resulting risks of natural hazards and how the community should best deal with them.
