Kiel Marine Science

Research questions

  • Which geological settings and processes initiated catastrophic landslides, earthquakes and tsunamis in Earth’s history?
  • How does the architecture of continental shelves and volcanic flanks favor the failure of large masses? How can these failures generate Tsunamis?
  • How can we use findings from geological archives of marine geohazards for future hazard evaluation?
  • What are the interfaces between hazard identification and hazard evaluation/assessment? How can we connect these interfaces?
  • How can submarine geohazards be monitored in-situ and how can this information be used for early-warning systems?
  • How can findings based on natural science research be translated and transferred into other disciplines and society?
  • Which tools are available for the visualization and communication of geoscientific findings? How can these tools be implemented and communicated?
