Dominika Pradzynska is currently PhD researcher, within Mountain Risks Marie Curie Research Network, at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Her research focuses on the analyses of short- and long-term behavior of mass movements. The main objective of her research is to improve understanding of the role of the preferential flow in landslide initiation and to include this knowledge in hazard and risk mapping on a large spatial scale. The study presented at EGU 2008 shows the use of temperature as indirect measurement for heterogeneity of soil moisture condition and preferential flow paths.
