TU Bergakademie Freiberg – Institut for Geology

There are several working groups at the Institute for Geology (TU Bergakademie Freiberg) with a focus on sedimentary geology. Current research projects combine sedimentology, volcanology and palaeontology  to understand regional geological  and palaeogeographical concepts, but also the economic potential of sedimentary basins and  their tectonic evolution.

Leibniz University Hannover – Institute for Geology

Currently, two research groups with focus on sedimentary geology are active at the Institute for Geology. Working group Heimhofer/Huck deals with Mesozoic shallow-water carbonates (Jurassic-Cretaceous) and with the composition and distribution of particulate organic matter in sedimentary rocks. Working group Winsemann/Brandes/Lang works on siliziclastic sedimentary systems with special emphasis on the quaternary deposits of Northern Germany and paleoseismological projects.
