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
In January 2015, paleontologist Steffen Kiel starts an FWF-funded Lise-Meitner-fellowship to search for evidence of methane seepage in the Northern Calcareous Alps in Austria.
In the November general assembly of the Austrian Geological Society, Bernhard Grasemann was elected as the new President for the next two year period.
