In Memoriam Prof. PhD Dr. h.c. Wolfgang H. Berger

Prof. Ph.D. Dr. h.c.Wolfgang H. Berger of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, Cal., USA, died unexpectedly on 6 August 2017 at the age of 79. Wolfgang Berger was one of the most distinguished marine geoscientists in the world and a cofounder of the new discipline of paleoceanography. His pioneering and innovative work opened up completely new possibilities for the use of deep-sea sediments in paleoclimate reconstructions.Following the establishment of the Department of Geosciences at the University of Bremen in 1986, Wolfgang Berger worked for many years as a guest professor in Bremen. Through this cooperative work the Collaborative Research Centre on the History of the South Atlantic was jointly developed, and was funded by the German Research Foundation from 1989 to 2000. The successful work on the Collaborative Research Centre was the basis for approval of the Research Center Ocean Margins by the German Research Foundation in the year 2000. For his service in the development of the marine research profile of the Department of Geosciences, Wolfgang Berger was awarded an honorary doctoral degree from the University of Bremen in 2011. more

Auszeichnung fr Professor Thomas Pichler

Der Geochemiker Professor Dr. Thomas Pichler hat fr 2017 das Harris Distinguished Visiting Professorship am Dartmouth College erhalten. Ab dem 10. August wird er dort 5 Monate verbringen. Das Dartmouth College ist eine herausragende Institution in den USA und gehrt zur Gruppe der Ivy League-Universitten. Unter anderem wird er dort zusammen mit amerikanischen Kollegen einen Kurs in analytischer Geochemie halten. Darber hinaus will er dort ein gemeinsames Forschungsprojekt im Bereich Quecksilber in der Umwelt initiieren. Thomas Pichler ist seit 2008 am Fachbereich und vertritt den Schwerpunkt aquatische Geochemie und Hydrogeologie. Obwohl er sich als anorganischen Geochemiker betrachtet, ist seine Forschung in hchstem Grade interdisziplinr und spannt den Bogen von der Mikrobiologie bis zum Umweltingenieurwesen.

Rosa Danisi as postdoc in the crystallography group

On June 1st Dr. Rosa Danisi joined the crystallography group at the faculty of geosciences as a postdoc. She finished her study of geosciences in 2011 at the University of Milan in Italy with a master thesis on tourmalines. Then she went to the University of Bern working on the dehydration behavior of natural zeolites and zeolite-like materials as a PhD candidate. As a postdoc at the University of Utrecht (the Netherlands), she worked on phosphorous-stabilized synthetic zeolites to enhance their hydrothermal stability during catalytic processes. Finally, with a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation, she is going to study the thermal behavior of vanadium-bearing porous frameworks at the University of Bremen until November 2018. more
