Research group Prof. Dr. Winsemann

The research group of Prof. Winsemann investigates the interplay of tectonic processes and the evolution and fill of sedimentary basins on different spatial and temporal scales. The basin-fills are analysed using sedimentological and geophysical methods. Numerical simulations are conducted to quantify the subsidence and temperature history. We specially focus on Quaternary basin-fills. For this societally-relevant period of Earth’s history, the working group develops depositional models and carries out neotectonic studies to better understand the controlling factors for seismicity at active plate margins and in intraplate areas.
