Mein Forschungsinteresse konzentriert sich auf die aufgeführten Themenbereiche:

  • Sequenzstratigraphie im Ordovizium: ein Vergleich eines Schelfs mit hoher Sedimentationsrate (Bolivien) und eines stark kondensierten Epikontinentalmeeres (Schweden); die Arbeiten in Bolivien werden im Rahmen eines DFG-Projektes (EG 141/1-1) gefördert.
  • Sedimentation im Unterkarbon der Varisziden: Fazies in pro- und retrogradierenden Fächersystemen
  • Zyklische Sedimentation in lagunären Karbonaten

My current research activities concentrate on the following topics:

  • Sequence stratigraphy in the Ordovician: comparing a shelf with high sedimentation rates (Bolivia) with condensed successions of an epicontinental sea (Sweden);my research in Bolivia is financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG, project EG 141/1-1).
  • Sedimentation in the Lower Carboniferous of the Variscide Mountains: Facies evolution in a pro- and retrograding fan system
  • Cyclic sedimentation of lagoonal carbonates

 

The following projects are currently in progress:

The Ordovician succession of Öland and Västergötland, southern Sweden

(in collaboration with Dr. Jörg Maletz, University at Buffalo, New York)

  • sedimentology and facies analysis of an Ordovician epicontinental sea
  • sequence stratigraphy
  • biostratigraphy

Ordovician of southern Norway

(in collaboration with Prof. David Bruton, Palaeontological Museum Oslo, and Dr. Jörg Maletz, University at Buffalo, New York)

  • facies analysis of condensed shelf sediments
  • cyclic sedimentation in nodular limestones
  • sequence stratigraphic analysis

Ordovician sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of central Bolivia; DFG project EG 141/1-1

(in collaboration with Dr. Ramiro Suarez Soruco, Cochabamba, and Claudia Hildebrandt, Freiberg)

  • facies analysis of a thick siliciclastic shallow shelf succession
  • sequence stratigraphic interpretation of stacking patterns

Lower Carboniferous of the Halle area, Germany

(in collaboration with Dr. Bodo Ehling, GLA Sachsen-Anhalt)

  • facies distribution within a pro- and retrograding fan system and its paleogeographic implications
  • basin evolution in the Lower Carboniferous

Upper Carboniferous/Lower Permian succession in the Flechtingen area, northern Germany

(together with Christoph Breitkreuz and Marek Awdankiewicz, University of Wrozlaw, Poland)

  • sedimentology and facies analysis of Carboniferous strata
  • relation between volcanics and sediments
