The research group of Prof. Heimhofer deals with the interaction of climate, biological evolution and biogeochemical cycles on geological timescales. For the reconstruction of climatic events and biotic crises in Earth’s history, sedimentary archives are studied by utilizing stratigraphic, palontological and geochemical methods. The main focus is on sedimentary deposits formed during greenhouse climate conditions of the Mesozoic.
