Transdisciplinary research is considered an appropriate mode of knowledge production in the search for pathways towards a more sustainable governance of natural resources. However, the co-production of new knowledge between scientists of different disciplines and nonacademic stakeholders is a challenge that requires novel research designs, methods, and approaches. The MontanAqua team has ...

Geomorphology of the Hérens valley (Swiss Alps)

Lambiel, Christophe ; Maillard, Benoît ; Kummert, Mario ; Reynard, Emmanuel

In: Journal of Maps, 2016, vol. 12, no. 1, p. 160–172

This paper presents a geomorphological map of the Hérens valley in the Western Swiss Alps. With an area of 270 km2 and altitudes ranging from 470 to 4357 m a.s.l., this valley is one of the main secondary catchments of the Upper Rhône valley. The high differences in altitudes, combined with a varied geology, create an important geomorphic diversity. The main processes active in mountain...

Interdisciplinary assessment of complex regional water systems and their future evolution: how socioeconomic drivers can matter more than climate

Reynard, Emmanuel ; Bonriposi, Mariano ; Graefe, Olivier ; Homewood, Christine ; Huss, Matthias ; Kauzlaric, Martina ; Liniger, Hanspeter ; Rey, Emmanuel ; Rist, Stephan ; Schädler, Bruno ; Schneider, Flurina ; Weingartner, Rolf

In: Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Water, 2014, vol. 1, no. 4, p. 413–426

Modeling of future water systems at the regional scale is a difficult task due to the complexity of current structures (multiple competing water uses, multiple actors, formal and informal rules) both temporally and spatially. Representing this complexity in the modeling process is a challenge that can be addressed by an interdisciplinary and holistic approach. The assessment of the water system...

Assessing the sustainability of water governance systems: the sustainability wheel

Schneider, Flurina ; Bonriposi, Mariano ; Graefe, Olivier ; Herweg, Karl ; Homewood, Christine ; Huss, Matthias ; Kauzlaric, Martina ; Liniger, Hanspeter ; Rey, Emmanuel ; Reynard, Emmanuel ; Rist, Stephan ; Schädler, Bruno ; Weingartner, Rolf

In: Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 2014, p. 1–24

We present and test a conceptual and methodological approach for interdisciplinary sustainability assessments of water governance systems based on what we call the sustainability wheel. The approach combines transparent identification of sustainability principles, their regional contextualization through sub-principles (indicators), and the scoring of these indicators through deliberative...

Internal structure and permafrost distribution in two alpine periglacial talus slopes, Valais, Swiss Alps

Scapozza, Cristian ; Lambiel, Christophe ; Baron, Ludovic ; Marescot, Laurent ; Reynard, Emmanuel

In: Geomorphology, 2011, vol. 132, no. 3-4, p. 208-221

In order to determine the spatial extension and the characteristics of permafrost within alpine talus slopes, two sites located in the western part of the Swiss Alps were studied using borehole drilling and electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) profiles. Three boreholes were drilled along an upslope–downslope transect in both talus slopes. In both sites, frozen sediments are present only in...
