New Paper on Quan­ti­ta­tive Lacus­trine Pale­o­seis­mol­ogy

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.

Review Paper on Event Deposits in Lake Sediments

We participated in writing a community paper presenting a state-of-the-art review of Event Deposits in Lake Sediments

Tiefe(r) Se(h)en: Public Talks

Last week, we had a great closure of the Tiefe(r) Se(h)en science communication project. Each evening we visited different towns (Oetz, Biberwier, Reutte, Maurach and Kufstein) to report on our project and what the children investigated as well as a scientific lecture from Michael Strasser or Jasper Moernaut.

New paper published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters

The latest paper by postdoc Yin Lu, just published in EPSL, unravels a 220kyr-spanning event-stratigraphic record of the hypersaline Dead Sea to reconstruct different behavior of sediment density flows (overflows and underflows) during interglacials and glacials, respectively. Climate change is inferred to have affected the flows via changing salinity-density profile of lake brine.

New paper published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters

In this study by Schwestermann et al. just published in EPSL, we unravel a 2000-year record of event-dominated transport, provenance, and burial of organic carbon along the entire Japan Trench

In the news: Spuren massiver Bergstürze in Tiroler Alpenseen gefunden

Der Standard reports about our research investigating Tyrolian lakes to learn more about past earthquakes and rockslides.

Two new FWF projects funded!

The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) granted two new projects led by our research group

New training and collaboration project with Taiwan

The Austrian agency for international mobility and cooperation in education, science and research (OeAD) is funding our new project EAGER-TAIWAN-TRAINING

New micro XRF core-scanning application to assess heavy metal pollution

A new Scientific Reports article led by Jyh-Jaan Steven Huang presents a novel, simple, fast, and inexpensive method to monitor heavy metal pollution that uses cation-exchange resin sachets and the micro-XRF core-scanning technique, as valuable new tool in environmental monitoring and forensics.
