Modul 1: Wasserbezogene Hotspots im Alpenraum

Chair: Rolf Weingartner

 

Obwohl Wasser im Alpenraum ausreichend vorhanden ist, muss in Zukunft saisonal und regional mit Verknappungen des Angebots gerechnet werden. Zudem wird die Klimaerwärmung zu einer Destabilisierung des Hochgebirges führen und das uns vertraute Landschaftsbild verändern. Diese Entwicklungen werden durch die sozio-ökonomische Dynamik und den zunehmenden Wasserbedarf bestehender und neuer Nutzergruppen überlagert. Im Modul 1 sollen heutige und in Zukunft zu erwartende Nutzungskonflikte im Alpenraum erkannt, beschrieben und verortet werden. Dazu erarbeiten die Teilnehmenden im Rahmen von Workshops eine exemplarische Übersicht wasserbezogener Nutzungskonflikte (Hotspots). Die Ergebnisse bilden die Basis für die Diskussion in den nachfolgenden Modulen.

Workshop 1.1 – Existing water-related hotspots and hazards

Chair: Andreas Schaffhauser (ZAMG, Vienna)
Support for mapping: Heidi Humer-Gruber (University of Innsbruck)

 

Any change or a seasonal reduction of the available water resources can cause serious management challenges and downstream conflicts in the Alpine Region. Therefore the results of hydroclimatological models with different RCP scenarios give a very valuable quantification of future climate change effects on the availability of water resources in e.g. the Ötztal Alps (Tyrol,Austria).
The Copernicus program and Earth Observation in genral can contribute to a continuous and area-wide monitoring of water resources in the Alps. Such a monitoring will increase not only the understanding of hydrological processes under a changing climate, but also support sustainable water management for irrigation, energy production or technical snow production.

Workshop 1.2 – Emerging water-related hotspots and hazards due to climate change

Chair: Andrea Fischer (IGF)

Support for mapping: Valerie Braun (IGF)

 

Alpine Landscapes can be read as imprints of the forming forces, amongst them frozen and liquid water. One various time scales, natural processes as drifting continents, formation and disappearance of seas, erosion and deposition as well as climate changes influence topography and conditions for life. After the last glacial maximum, human activities changed the landscape by land use and cultural practices. The workshop aims at tackling various aspects of water as geomorphological parameter influencing the landscape, as well as modern anthropogenic aspects and views on water availability and management. The workshop aims at discussing past and modern influence of water on natural and cultural landscapes.

Workshop 1.3 – Emerging water-related hotspots and hazards due to socio-economic changes

Chair: Elisabeth Sötz (WWF Austria)

Support for mapping: Anna Schöpfer (University of Innsbruck)

 

Natural hazards have always been common in the Alps. In the course of climate change, hazard hotspots might be shifting – due to glacier retreat, permafrost melting, or changing precipitation. The first aim of this workshop is to visualize known hot spots and current destabilization events on a (webGIS) map.

Apart the hazard occurrence, exposure and vulnerability play an equally important role in disaster risk. Therefore, the second step will be to match the pure hazard map with other factors such as population density.

In conclusion, the workshop seeks to emphasize key factors to take into account when we have to deal with increasing destabilization.
