As a scientific working group, GAPHAZ tries to support any scientific activity related to glacier and permafrost hazards in mountains. Please contact us for involvement in meetings and conferences, for coordinated funding proposals etc.

GAPHAZ itself offers no commercial services such as e.g. hazard assessments or emergency interventions. However, GAPHAZ is a network of experts in the field of glacier and permafrost hazards. We would be happy to forward any such request to our expert members and help to find a suitable partner for you. Please contact us directly.
