New Project within the SPP Earthshape
Our joint project with the GFZ Potsdam "SECCO - Chile: The coupled vegetation, weathering, erosion and sediment-export response to climate change unraveled from novel proxies in Chilean marine sediment” has been recently suggested for DFG funding within the SPP Earthshape. PhD positions will be announced shortly:
Guestprofessor Kristina Hippe
Starting September 05, 2018, Kristina Hippe is substituting Prof. Anne Bernhardt for 1 year at the Institute of Geological Science, Sedimentary Systems group.
Key note talk - Anne Bernhardt - 1st Early Career Sedimentologist Meeting (ECSM)
Anne Bernhardt will give a key note talk “Sediment dispersal dynamics and environmental signal propagation into deep marine sediments along the Chile margin." on Friday June 8th at the 1st Early Career Sedimentologist Meeting (ECSM) organized by the Fachsektion Sedimentologie/SEPM-CES to be held on the 8th and 9th of June 2018 at the Institute of Geology at the Leibniz University Hannover.
Anne Bernhardt has won this years' Teaching Award awarded by the students of Geological Sciences at the FU Berlin.

Experimental work on living Triops longicaudatus
During my internship at the Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, USA I started working with park paleontologist Dr. Daniel Chure on potential notostracan trace fossils from the Triassic Chinle Formation. Other than writing, I do experimental work on living Triops longicaudatus to reconstruct its traces and environment. Currently I’m about to finish my undergraduate Thesis: “PALEONTOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF UNIQUE, ABUNDANT AND SUBPARALLEL NOTOSTRACAN TRACE FOSSILS FROM THE UPPER TRIASSIC CHINLE FORMATION IN DINOSAUR NATIONAL MONUMENT, NORTHEASTERN UTAH, USA"
