Leibniz University Hannover – Institute for Geology

Currently, two research groups with focus on sedimentary geology are active at the Institute for Geology. Working group Heimhofer/Huck deals with Mesozoic shallow-water carbonates (Jurassic-Cretaceous) and with the composition and distribution of particulate organic matter in sedimentary rocks. Working group Winsemann/Brandes/Lang works on siliziclastic sedimentary systems with special emphasis on the quaternary deposits of Northern Germany and paleoseismological projects.

Currently the following research topics are covered in Hannover:

  • Sedimentology of Carbonates and Siliciclastic Sediments
  • Quaternary Geology
  • Stable Isotopes and Chemostratigraphy
  • Basin Analysis and Modelling
  • Palynofacies und Palynology

 
Analytical equipment in the field of sedimentary geology:

  • ThermoScientific Delta V Advantage isotope ratio spectrometer
  • Gas Bench II for C & O isotope analysis of carbonates
  • ThermoScientific TC/EA coupled to COSTECH autosampler
  • Olympus BX 53 light microscope, X-cite series 120Q fluorescence
  • Petromod & Gocad….
