1868 - a flood that changed Switzerland

12 September 2018

The OCCR has launched a new publication called “1868 - a flood that changed Switzerland”. This 60 pages strong brochure, written for an non-scientific audience, is the fruit of the collaboration of researchers from all fields of the OCCR. The project has produced an in-depth analysis and reconstruction of the flood that affected large parts of the Alpine region in Switzerland in autumn 1868. The brochure can be downloaded free of charge.
Read more (in German) and see a video (in German) that explains the methods used for the reconstruction of the flood of 1868 (in German).
