Thomas Laepple appointed as AWI cooperation professor

His discipline at the FB5 is "Earth System Diagnostics"

On November 1, 2019, Dr. Thomas Laepple was appointed Professor in the field of "Earth System Diagnostics" at the Faculty of Geosciences of the University of Bremen. He was also appointed jointly with the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research.
Thomas Laepple is an internationally recognized climate researcher who innovatively combines Earth system modelling, palaeoclimate research and statistical data analysis to use data from the geological past for a better understanding of the climate processes of the present and the future.
After graduating from the University of Hamburg with a diploma in physics, Laepple received his doctorate in physics from the University of Bremen. He did research at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven and at Harvard University and has been head of a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group at the AWI in Potsdam since 2013. In 2017 he was awarded an ERC Starting Grant. more

The new Faculty Brochure is online!

The printed information brochure of our Geosciences Faculty appeared last in 2012 and has been out of stock for some time. Thanks to much highly appreciated support from our numerous sections and cooperation partners and great efforts by Heike Piero, a reprint with up-to-date information and hundreds of new and attractive illustrations will be on shelf by the end of October. A sneak preview online version is available from our "Public > Information Materials" menu. more

We all thank our reshuffled deans for their great and important engagement and wish them good luck, fair winds and following seas for their future endeavors! more

Dissertation mit Auszeichnung abgeschlossen

Antonia Ruppel hat ihre an der Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR) und der Universität Bremen verfaßte Dissertation „A multi-method approach to study the geodynamic evolution of eastern Dronning Maud Land in East Antarctica by integrating geophysical data with surface geology“ mit Auszeichnung abgeschlossen. Die Dissertation besteht aus neun Einzelpublikation als Erst- oder Co-Autorin sowie einer Synopsis, in denen Antonia Aufbau und geologische Entwicklung von Sør Rondane, einer aufgrund logistischer Einschränkungen nur wenig untersuchten Region im östlichen Dronning Maud Land/ Antarktis, untersucht.
