  • Emmanuel Nduwayezu: Rainfall variability modelling and mapping and global risk evaluation in Rwanda. Emmanuel Nduwayezu Directors: Prof. Michel Jaboyedoff, Prof. Mikhail Kanevski. Research project summary description The high population densities of Rwanda can be explained by climatic conditions, especially rainfall conditions. Precipitations have been generally quite good, and have contributed to define an agricultural calendar with two harvest seasons in a civil year. With the exacerbation of extreme ...
  • Dario Carrea : Understanding landslide deformation from LiDAR data Dario Carrea Co-supervisors : Prof. Michel Jaboyedoff, Dr. Antonio Abellán, Dr. Marc-Henri Derron Real landslides are complex bodies affected by spatio-temporal changes: while some areas are affected by progressive deformation, others areas are typically affected by sudden changes as rockfalls. Use of LiDAR techniques to monitor these complex phenomena is now well ...
