    Apply quickly now!

    Until July 15 you can still apply for our Bachelor programs Geowissenschaften and Marine Geosciences. Both study courses are not limited in places.
    Both programs offer a variety of minor subjects that allow you to specialize on very early while still learning about the full spectrum of Geosciences is guaranteed. While the Bachelor of Geowissenschaften focuses more on applied topics, the international Bachelor of Marine Geosciences provides geoscientific education with relevance to oceanography, marine geology, marine geophysics, and geoinformation technology. With our three master`s programs, Applied Geosciences, Marine Geosciences, and Materials Chemistry and Mineralogy, further qualification after the bachelor`s degree is assured depending on the focus of study. ... more

    Guest Lecture by Professor Juan Manuel García-Ruiz

    The formation of giant gypsum crystals: nucleation, growth and preservation
    Wed 8. June at 12:15 in GEO1550

    Prof. Juan Manuel (Juanma) García-Ruiz is Research Professor of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) and currently Fellow at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg. He studies self-organization in biological and geological structures, with applications to the origin of life and the synthesis of new materials. Juanma is an internationally recognized expert in crystal nucleation and growth with varied applications to mineral sciences but also the crystallization of drugs and proteins. His many research highlights include the discovery of biomimetic minerals that grow in shapes commonly associated with life by abiotic self-organization. Another research highlight – and topic of his guest lecture – was finding the solution for the formation of giant crystals.... more

    Thomas Berndt (Peking Univ.) is visiting scientist of our faculty

    Colloquium "Reconstructing ocean water oxygenation through magnetic FORC measurements of biogenic magnetite" on June 15th 12:15 in GEO 1550

    Thomas Berndt is a geophysicist originally from Bremen, Germany, whose current paleomagnetic and rock magnetic work includes the magnetism of extraterrestrial material, nanoparticles and bioparticles. His academic career has led him from studies in Southampton, Edinburgh, Brussels and Madrid, a PhD at Imperial College (London) and the Boya Post-Doctoral Fellowship of Peking University to his current Assistant Professorship at the Dept. of Geophysics in the School of Earth and Space Sciences there. Over the next three months at the Bremen Magnetics Lab, Thomas Berndt plans to test a newly devised method for detecting different types of magnetofossils in order to use them as magnetic biomarkers of the bacterial environment in marine sediments. Those who would like to visit him (GEO 4120) or meet him at his faculty colloquium talk, can greet the creative and polyglot scientist optionally with "Nihao", "Hi!", "Salut!", "¡Hola!" or the classic Bremen "Moin!".... more
