Working Group Dynamics of the Earth

AG Dynamik der Erde

To the group-homepage "Dynamics of the Earth".

The working group Dynamics of Earth deals with the analysis and modelation of geopynamic processes that occur on earth.  Main focus is set on deformation- and flowprocesses in the rigid earth crust and the flowable mantle, such as:

  • Deformation processes on earth ( reservoirs, orogenisis, ...)
  • Deformation processes within earth ( glacial isostasy, mantle convections, ...)
  • Evolution of landscapes (erosion, denundation, ...)
  • Evolution of aquifer systems ( karst, ground water flow, ...)
  • Dynamics of climate ( ice ages, climatic archives, ... )

The group mainly deploys computer simulations, either using in-house developments or commercial software. The results of the numeric simulation are then compared to observational data.
