Open Day in the Geosciences Collection

A fascinating insight into past worlds will be provided by the Open Day of the Geosciences Collection of the University of Bremen on Saturday 23 November from 11 to 17 o´clock in the MARUM (Leobener Str. 8). Visitors can marvel at the large selection of minerals, rocks and fossils. In addition to guided tours, there is a colourful supporting programme with lectures, exhibitions, a tombola and the shark tooth sieving popular with children. Admission is free. more

Vielen Dank, liebe Frau Trage !

Zum Jahresende wird Frau Heidemarie Trage, die langjährige Verwaltungsleiterin unseres Fachbereichs, in den wohlverdienten Ruhestand gehen. Frau Trage kam bereits 1991 als Sachbearbeiterin für Haushalt und Prüfung in den damals erst fünf Jahre alten Fachbereich und bezog Quartier im gerade neuentstandenen GEO1-Gebäude. Nach der Beförderung zur Ersten Sachbearbeiterin in 2000 wurde ihr 2005 die Verwaltungsleitung übertragen. Im Laufe ereignisreiche Jahre war sie durch Einsatz und Zuverlässigkeit dem wachsenden Fachbereich Rückhalt und wertvoller Partner in zahlreichen Umgestaltungsprozessen. Das Dekanat und der gesamte Fachbereich danken Frau Trage für die treue und engagierte Unterstützung. Wir werden Ihr freundliches und besonnenes Wesen vermissen und wünschen ihr alles Beste für den nächsten Lebensabschnitt. Wer sich persönlich von Frau Trage verabschieden möchte, sollte beachten, dass der 9.12. ihr letzter Arbeitstag sein wird. more

1st Geo-Lecture WS19/20

Mark van Zuilen, IPGP Paris: Traces of life in ancient silica deposits

The first of four talks in our Geo-Lecture Series in this semester will be presented by Mark van Zuilen from the IPGP in Paris. He will talk about some of the challenges of identifying fossils of the earliest forms of life in Archaean silica deposits and share insights into this existing topic from recent field and experimental work funded by the ERC.The lecture will be at 12:15 pm on November 27th in the large lecture hall (Geo1550).
