We contributed to the study published by Chu et al., discovering earthquake-induced redistribution and reburial of microbes in the Japan Trench
This first scientific results from IODP Expeditoin 386, co-lead by Michi Strasser, document earthquake-enhanced dissolved carbon
cycles in ultra-deep ocean sediments

We welcome Valentina Moreno Allende as new PhD student in our research group
The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) granted a new project led by our research group to study subduction zone earthquake cycles in the Japan Trench
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.
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.
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
Der Standard reports about our research investigating Tyrolian lakes to learn more about past earthquakes and rockslides.
The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) granted two new projects led by our research group
Marcel Ortler successfully completed and defended his MSc thesis entitled Sedimentary record of historical flood events in Lake Millstatt (Carinthia, Austria).
Michi Strasser contributed to a new study compiling a database of potential paleoseismic evidence in Switzerland
