From Bremen: new geological hiking guide about the Lechtaler Alps

The Bremen Faculty of Geosciences is known worldwide for its excellent marine geological research profile. In addition, the department also works intensively in terrestrial geology. Two new publications that have recently appeared provide information about the results of many years of field work by Rüdiger Henrich and his students in the Lechtal Alps. The first is the new official geological map of the Republic of Austria, sheet ÖK 114 Holzgau, and the second is a new geological and natural history hiking guide to the Lechtal Alps, which is currently being printed by Pfeil Verlag in Munich. more

FB5 contribution to the project "Germany´s most beautiful geotopes in 3D"

As part of a 2-day field work in the second week of September, members of the Geosciences department surveyed part of the Teufelsmauer near Weddersleben/Thale. The team included Marcello Gugliatti, Gerhard Bohrmann, Neele Koehler, Jacqueline Bendig and Anhelina Burmaka. The walls of the Teufelsmauer were systematically photographed by drone flights, with multiple overlapping of the digital images georeferenced with GPS. In the coming weeks, the images will be combined into a 3D model that is planned to be presented in January 2023 in the project "Digital Geology - Germany´s most beautiful geotopes in 3D" more

Paul Klar is on board!

Since the first of August, Paul Klar has held the new Researcher/Senior Researcher position in Materials Science Mineralogy in our department. Paul is a proven expert in crystallography and electron diffraction. He studied geosciences (BSc) and Materials Science (MSc) in Munich and went to the Universidad del País Vasco in Bilbao as a PhD student where he completed his dissertation with honors in Physics in 2018. As a Postdoctoral Fellow, Paul conducted research in the Department of Structure Analysis at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague on the resolution and refinements of crystal structures based on X-ray and electron diffraction experiments. He is heavily involved in the development of this new and innovative area of crystallography, which involves the refinement of crystal structures using dynamic electron diffraction data. We are very pleased that Paul will develop his excellent methodological and theoretical approaches to research and teaching in our department and substantially strengthen us with valuable expertise in materials science. more

Reorganization in the University Executive Board of the University of Bremen

The university is positioning itself with a new team in the University Executive Board. In addition to the future president, Jutta Günther, three new vice presidents were unanimously confirmed by the AS on June 15. Joining them is Michal Kucera from our faculty as vice president for research and transfer. The new University Executive Board will take up its duties in the fall.

We would like to congratulate Michal and wish the team much success! more
