The central theme of our research is Earth’s sedimentary record from the Precambrian to the Neogene with a special focus on the geochemical properties of carbonates. Nevertheless, the group combines a wide range of research directions including paleo-climatology (marine and continental) the sedimentary record of continental and marine basins, sediment petrography, applied sedimentology (in collaboration with the hydrocarbon industry) and applied geochemistry (environmental geology).

In DGE-ROLLOUT we specifically contribute with comprehensive expertise in rock-water interactions and geochemical tracers of subsurface fluid flow, quantification of dissolution-precipitation parameters of authigenic minerals in the subsurface related to the circulation of hydrothermal fluids, and characterization of three-dimensional carbonate bodies in the subsurface and their spatial distribution of porosity and permeability patterns including fracture systems.
