Bienvenue sur la plate-forme Innovation et Territoires de Montagne

Le LabEx Item est un réseau d'acteurs des territoires et de chercheurs issus des établissements de recherche d’Isère et de Savoie. Sa vocation est d’apporter aux territoires de montagne les capacités d’analyse et d’expertise qu’appellent les différentes formes de changement auxquelles ils sont confrontés.

Cette plate-forme vise à rendre visible les activités et réseaux mis en oeuvre dans le projet ITEM ainsi qu'à diffuser l'information de nos partenaires autour de la montagne. Il s'agit d'un outil d'informations, d'échanges, de collaboration et de partages ouvert à tous.

Cette plateforme est actuellement en version bêta. N'hésitez pas à nous faire part de vos remarques.

Comparison of modelled- and remote sensing- derived daily snow line altitudes at Ulugh Muztagh, northern Tibetan Plateau

Abstract The ice cap Ulugh Muztagh in the central Kunlun Shan at the northern fringe of the Tibetan Plateau is a very isolated region with arid cold conditions. No observational, meteorological or glaciological ground truth data is...

Experimental analysis for the dynamic initiation mechanism of debris flows

Abstract Debris flow is one of the major secondary mountain hazards following the earthquake. This study explores the dynamic initiation mechanism of debris flows based on the strength reduction of soils through static and dynamic ...

Climate–growth relationship stability of Picea crassifolia on an elevation gradient, Qilian Mountain, Northwest China

Abstract Climate affects Picea crassifolia growth and climate change will lead to changes in the climate–growth relationship (i.e., the “divergence” phenomenon). However, standardization methods can also change the understanding of...

Effect of barley straw biochar application on greenhouse gas emissions from upland soil for Chinese cabbage cultivation in short-term laboratory experiments

Abstract Chinese cabbage was cultivated in upland soil with the addition of biochar in order to investigate the potential for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Barley straw biochar (BSB) was introduced in a Wagner pot (1/5000a...

Long-range precipitation forecasts using paleoclimate reconstructions in the western United States

Abstract Long-range precipitation forecasts are useful when managing water supplies. Oceanic-atmospheric oscillations have been shown to influence precipitation. Due to a longer cycle of some of the oscillations, a short instrument...

Dynamics of land use change in a mining area: a case study of Nadowli District, Ghana

Abstract In a developing country like Ghana, the study of land use and land cover change (LULCC) based on satellite imageries still remains a challenge due to cost, resolution and availability with less skilled man power. Existing ...
