Current projects

Cluster of Excellence University of Kiel The Future Ocean, Topic B6 Dangerous Ocean, DFG, 2007-2017

Collaborators: GEOMAR; several institutes at Kiel University
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
Main objective is to understand the causes and effects of large events with return periods of
decades to millennia or processes that occur on centennial to decadal time scales and impact changing and vulnerable coastal systems. Such events and processes include earthquakes, submarine slides and associated tsunamis, increasing large floods and storms, and rapid relative sea level rise related to delta subsidence and global warming.

Holocene evolution and present-day dynamics of the Parnaíba delta: response of a pristine delta to climate change and sea-level rise

CAPES, Brasilien, 2015-2017
Collaborators: Several institutes at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
Pristine deltas pertaining undisturbed terrestrial sediment supply have become rare in the meantime. Investigation of the evolution and dynamics of such deltas is required on a regional scale to evaluate the influence of climate change and sea-level rise. The northeastern Brazilian Parnaíba Delta is highlighted in this context.

Baltic Sea water budget and sediment transport changes since the Littorina Transgression and their effects on the ecosystem

BMBF, 2015-2016
Collaborators: IOW, GEUS Kopenhagen
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
The cruise is designed to execute seismo- and hydroacoustic surveys, and sampling of Holocene sediments in the western, central and northeastern Baltic Sea. In particular, we investigate in more detail the magnitude and timing of the Littorina transgression as a phase of highly accelerated sea-level rise and its impact on the inflow of saline waters into the western Baltic.

The SouthChina Sea Deep

National Science Foundation of China, 2013-2018
Collaborators: State Key Laboratory of Marine Geology, Tongji University, Shanghai
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
The mission of the project is to correlate the deep basin of the South China Sea and surrounding land, including three major scientific themes: tectonics and magmatism, stratigraphy and sedimentology, paleoceanography and paleoclimatology. Major goals are sediment fluxes from source to sink and preparing for ocean drilling on the Sunda Shelf.

Projects completed during the last five years
