Transport and deposition of marine sediments – Studies on various time scales

  • Budgets of sediments and morphology in modern and ancient environments
  • Estimating the potential footprint of dynamic processes in marine and estuarine environments
  • Differentiation of high-frequency sedimentological processes and patterns on different time scales to define sediment transport rates in highly dynamical environments


  • Assessing the influence of individual events and the natural variability in different environments
  • Comparing the processes and products of tide-influenced and non-tidal systems Application of hydro-acoustic techniques for In situ –measurements of sedíment properties and benthic community structure
  • Marine remote sensing
  • Our research projects are contributing to the research SENCKENBERG:
