Earthquake control of large prehistoric rockslides in the Eastern Alps

We shed new light on a long-lasting debate about the trigger mechanism of large rockslides in the Tyrolian Alps. Our state-of-the-art lake paleoseismolgy approach documents prehistoric earthquakes, larger than any of the reported historical events, that degraded the steep rock slopes towards failure.

Organic carbon export to the hadal seafloor triggered by large earthquakes

We have integrated state-of-the-art methods to reveal drastic export of organic carbon to the hadal trench, shedding new light on the impact of large earthquakes on the deep-sea carbon cycle.

A lake sediment perspective on time-dependent recurrence of strong earthquake shaking near plate boundaries

A worldwide review of lacustrine paleoseismology reveals contrasting recurrence patterns for strong earthquakes at plate boundaries and intra-plate settings.
