About the Author

Prof. Richard Dikau has a full professorship at the department of geography. His scientific focus includesthe study of geomorphology, geomorphometry, permafrost research and natural hazards. From 1998–2007 he was the chair of the interdisciplinary research training group 437 “Landform – a structured and variable boundary layer”.

Dr. Jan-Christoph Otto works on high mountain geomorphology and sediment budgets. He is a former member of the research training group 437 “Landform – a structured and variable boundary layer” and graduated within this programme on high mountain sediment storage and sediment budgets.
