Current Projects

Cenozoic Erosion and Uplift of the Alps (long-term activity)

  1. Methods: sediment budget, low-temperature thermochronology, provenance, palaeogeography
  2. Regions: Alps and surrounding basins

Rates of weathering and erosion of crystalline basement in subalpine climate

  1. Methods: exposure age by cosmogenic nuclides, thin section microscopy
  2. Regions: Corsica, Rila/Pirin mountains, Sudetes

Geodynamics and exhumation of reactivated crystalline basement in the western Mediterranean

  1. Methods: low-temperature thermochronology incl. (U-Th)/He-dating
  2. Regions: Corsica, Sardinia, Maures Massiv (Cote d´Azur)

Late Pleistocene glaciation of Corsica and the western Mediterranean

  1. Methods: exposure age by cosmogenic nuclides and OSL to date glacier maximum advances

Holocene glaciation of Corsica in comparison to Sierra Nevada, Pyrenees and Alps

  1. Methods: exposure age by cosmogenic nuclides, lichenometry, historic archives

Late Holocene dendroclimatologic and ecologic evolution and local differentialion of Corsica

  1. Methods: dendroclimatology and –ecology, stabile isotopes in tree rings and recent surface waters

Late Pleistocene glaciation of southeastern Europe (Carpathians, Rila- and Pirin mountains)

  1. Methods: exposure age by cosmogenic nuclides and OSL to date glacier maximum advances
  2. Regions: Carpathians/Romania, Rila- and Pirin/Bulgaria, Šara mountains/Kosovo-Macedonia
