The science of avalanches | DW Documentary
 
42:26
It’s difficult to forecast avalanches and impossible to stop them. This documentary follows scientists, snow profilers and trainers as they assess the risk of avalanches in the Alps. As many as a hundred people die in avalanches in the Alps each year. Climate change is complicating the already difficult task of forecasting the treacherous events. At the world’s largest center for avalanche research − the Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF) in Davos − scientists are investigating the conditions that cause packed snow to crumble and the impact of climate change. This documentary takes viewers to Switzerland, Austria, France and Germany in the winter to meet scientists who have dedicated their lives to the study of avalanches and snow using the latest techniques. The report also features snow profilers who assess the risk of avalanches every day and coaches who train winter sports enthusiasts. Researchers from various countries come together to take part in a large-scale, multi-disciplinary experiment using controlled explosions to trigger a avalanche on SLF’s test site. We follow the researchers as they prepare for the big bang. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Tiny meteorites are everywhere. Here’s how to find them.
 
10:26
Tons of tiny meteorites fall to Earth every day, but are next to impossible to find once they land. At least, that’s what the science community thought. In this pilot episode of our “Trial & Error” experiment series, we go on a hunt for micrometeorites with the help of the amateur scientist who showed the world that they truly could be found.

Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity.

Little Monsters - Hide & Cheat - The Secrets of Nature
 
51:07
Presents some of the animal kingdom's strangest survival strategies. The most startling behaviour patterns aren't found among the classic big animals such as lions or polar bears, but among nature's smaller creatures: Poison dart frogs, chameleons, praying mantises and scorpions, to name only a few. These "Little Monsters" are masters of survival. Until recently, only a handful of scientists enjoyed the technical means to study them up close. But now, thanks to 3D visualization, large audiences can experience a chameleon thrusting out its tongue at close range, rattlesnakes striking at their targets to within fractions of an inch, praying mantises hunting and hummingbirds feeding, filmed from inside the flower! Rather than simply delivering a flat representation of these amazing stunts, modern 3D provides for an emotional experience. And with its ingenious combination of slow-motion-3D and timelapse-3D, "Little Monsters" even improves upon state of the art 3D for greater impact, yielding unbelievable scenes the world has never seen and "felt" before.

The exquisite spike-thumb frog (Plectrohyla exquisita) is a charming ambassador for the park’s rich biodiversity and one of 16 different species of amphibians listed as Endangered or Critically Endangered by the IUCN. Some are found nowhere else on Earth and face a growing number of threats. In addition to illegal deforestation and climate change, chytrid fungus—the now infamous disease that has decimated frog populations around the world—was discovered in the park in 2007. Scientist Jonathan Kolby founded the Honduras Amphibian Rescue & Conservation Center (HARCC), an organization that is working to both treat juvenile frogs infected with chytrid fungus and develop a breeding and reintroduction program for several endangered species to guard against extinction. But their efforts to breed exquisite spike-thumb frogs have revealed a puzzling challenge; despite 10 years of intensive field work in the area, scientists have never heard or recorded the species’ mating call—and recordings of these calls can be critical tools when it comes to inspiring frogs to breed in captivity. So, with the help of sound artist Ben Mirin, the team embarked on a quest to record the enigmatic frog’s call and bring its voice back to the lab. What ensues is both a delightful portrait of the process of scientific discovery and an inspiring example of the power of sound as a tool for conservation.

The Iron Forest - The Secrets of Nature
 
49:09
The youngest of Austria’s national parks is also the country’s biggest continuous forest area. Ten million trees make the labyrinthine, fissured karst formations of the Reichraming and Sensen mountain ranges an endless green wilderness. But these mountain forests that were originally almost impenetrable lie in the midst of Austria’s iron industry. For more than a thousand years, it supplied the fuel for smelting iron from innumerable little mines in the region, especially from the Styrian Erzberg.
