Innsbruck Tectonics Research Group


Wie sind die Dolomiten entstanden?

Wie verformen sich die Dolomiten noch immer und was sagen die Gesteine über künftige Erdbeben aus?

Geolog:innen um Hannah Pomella vom Institut für Geologie der Universität Innsbruck beschäftigen sich in einem breit angelegten Forschungsprojekt mit diesen Fragestellungen.
