Research and teaching

Research and teaching focus on a better understanding of important processes on the earth's surface and in the lithosphere. Thereby, field observations are combined with experiments, modelling, and theory. Current research activities can be divided into three main areas, each consisting of several research projects:

Deformation of the continental lithosphere and development of sedimentary basins
Interplay between geosphere and biosphere and its variability in earth's history
Geomechanical and geohydraulic processes in near-surface environments
