Department for Geodynamics and Sedimentology
Research at the Department of Geodynamics and Sedimentology focuses on pure and applied research into both ductile/brittle lithospheric and Earth-surface processes. Field-based geology and quantitative modeling of geodynamic processes form the foundation of academic and applied Earth sciences research, in particular in petroleum geology and seismology. A close collaboration between research groups focuses on integrated geodynamics/tectonics and sedimentology/stratigraphy.
Head: Jörn Peckmann, Bernhard Grasemann
After a scientifically very successful year, the executive of the Department for Geodynamics and Sedimentology wishes all our members, students and collaborators a peaceful and joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
In the November general assembly of the Austrian Geological Society, Bernhard Grasemann was elected as the new President for the next two year period.
