Our Research Objectives

  • Budgets of sediments and morphology in modern and ancient environments
  • Transport processes on various time scales
  • 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
  • Reconstruction of paleo-landscapes
  • Comparing the processes and products of tide-influenced and non-tidal systems
  • Application of hydro-acoustic techniques for in situ–measurements of sediment properties and benthic community structure
  • Marine remote sensing – habitat mapping
