Dr Steven Franke receives the Bremen Study Award 2022

Dr Steven Franke receives the unifreunde study award for his dissertation
"Deciphering past and present ice flow patterns from radar reflections"

with which he received his doctorate in September 2022 in our Faculty of Geosciences. The thematic classification of his dissertation ranges from the application of standard methods to large data sets to the extension of established methods to very innovative approaches. The knowledge gained in it allows us a new view of the dynamics of Greenland ice streams, coupled with new methodology for interpretation. Scientifically, this is a big step forward in our understanding of the movement of ice masses, which is essential for a better estimation of the expected sea level rise, especially in coastal regions, in view of man-made climate change. more

The Devil’s Wall in 3D - Contribution from the Department of Geosciences to the project "Germany´s most beautiful geotopes"

On the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the German Geological Society and its successor organizations in 2023, geoscientific institutions initiated the 30 Geotope project. The project aims to show that outcrops are primary sources of information in geology and how these can be documented using modern methods. The University of Bremen is participating and, in addition to the Piesberg, now also the Devil’s Wall at Königstein was presented. After the drone measurement last year, the approximately 2,000 drone images were combined into a 3D model. The model has been available since mid-January together with an explanatory text on the formation of the Devil’s wall and a video on the platform Digital Geology – Deutschlands schönste Geotope in 3D.

German Geophysical Society (DGG) meets March 5-9 at UB

Abstract submission deadline is January 27

The 83rd Annual Meeting of the German Geophysical Society (DGG) is again hosted by the University of Bremen this year - a good and convenient opportunity for all young and also not quite as young members of our faculty to inform themselves about the broad spectrum of geophysical research in and around Germany, to cultivate contacts and also to contribute their own conference contribution. Abstract submission is possible until January 27th.

What are the topics of this year´s DGG meeting? Key themes are marine natural hazards, renewable energies, changing polar regions, and the tectonics and dynamics of rift and spreading ridges. And of course, as always, there will be numerous sessions, talks and posters around all current working directions in geophysics. more
