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.

Daniel Smrzka has been awarded with an uni:docs fellowship from the University of Vienna to develop approaches that allow for the discrimination of limestones that formed at oil seeps from limestones that formed at methane seeps.
