Short summary
The GPP model can be used to simulate the process path and run-out area of gravitational processes based on a digital terrain model. By providing several modelling approaches, the tool can be configured for different processes such as rockfall, debris flows or snow avalanches. The tool can be applied to regional-scale studies such as natural hazard susceptibility mapping. It is implemented as tool for SAGA GIS and has been released as open source.
