Information about Prof. Dr. Karl Stattegger

Portrait

Karl Stattegger studied Geology at University of Graz, Austria. In 1977 he earned his doctorate in Geology and Paleontology. In 1986 after a A.V. Humboldt fellowship from 1983-85 he earned his habilitation in Mathematical Geology at university of Graz. Since 1990 Karl Stattegger has held the professorship in Sedimentology in the Institute for Geosciences at Kiel University with a strong focus on coastal and shelf geology. Since 2013 he is holding the Kiel UNE SCO Chair in Marine Geology and Coastal Management.

Research questions

Most of the research of Karl Stattegger is related to sea-level change, coastal and shelf evolution, river-mouth systems and coastal morphodynamics. Central research questions include:

  • Which factors influence regional sea-level change and to what extent?
  • How can we explain the highly accelerated sea-level rise in the early Holocene?
  • How do coastal systems respond to sea-level change, storm occurrence and river discharge?
  • How resilient are shorelines to sea-level rise?
  • Can we detect early phases of instabilities in subsiding deltas from offshore changes in morphodynamics?
