the research group Marine Sedimentology ("AG Hebbeln") performs its research and teaching activities at the University of Bremen in the framework of the MARUM (Center for Marine Environmental Sciences) and in close cooperation with the Department of Geosciences. Our studies focus on various aspects of Marine Geology and Sedimentology, namely Palaeoceanography & Climate, Cold-Water Coral Ecosystems, and Sediment Dynamics.
With a focus on individual ocean regions and on specific marine ecosystems our research intends to constantly improve our knowledge in this field. In this context, our studies follow two guiding principles: (1) "The past is the window into the future" - as only for the past we can study the processes that will shape our future environment, and (2) "The present is the key to the past" – as only from the understanding of present processes, we can learn how to interpret the archives recording the Earth's history.
