Research Projects


Presently, our chair works on seven research projects, which are financed by third-party funding.

The research topics are manifold and range from Quaternary landscape and climate reconstruction over recent development of river landscapes and the influence on them by human activity to the coordination of a German-Mongolian university. Besides local studies in the greater area of Aachen, regional foci include Southeastern Europe, Central Asia – in particular Mongolia – and Northern Chile.

All projects take place in cooperation with other institutes and chairs of the RWTH Aachen, with the Geoverbund ABC/J, with institutions from Germany as well as from abroad.
