This study by PhD student Christoph Daxer presents a new cal­i­brated 14.000-year lacus­trine pale­o­seis­mol­ogy record in lake Wörthersee that allows validation of the seismic hazard cuve using robust observational data.

Obergurgl Group Retreat 2022

On 7 to 9 October, we held the second Sedimentary Geology Group Retreat at the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl. Stefano Fabbri from the Université Savoie Mont Blanc joined as our external guest and showed his research on tsuname vs storm deposits in the Lesser Antilles. We enjoyed great and diverse scientific discussion, alternated with hiking and fireplace discussion.
