Information about Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Sebastian Krastel

Portrait

Sebastian Krastel studied Geophysics at Kiel University. In 1999 he earned his doctorate in Marine Geosciences. In 2008 after eight years of research at Bremen University, Sebastian Krastel was offered a professorship in Submarine Natural Hazards in the Cluster of Excellence ‘Future Ocean’. Since 2012 he is Professor of Marine Geophysiks and Hydroacoustics in the Institute for Geosciences at Kiel University.

Research questions

Most of the research of Sebastian Krastel is related to sediment transport processes and associated geohazards. Central research questions include:

  • What processes control sediment (re)deposition and transport on the shelf, across the shelf break and on the continental slope?
  • What are the dominant processes and environmental controls of mass wasting?
  • How dangerous are slope failures on continental margins and in lakes?
  • How can we use sedimentary archives in lakes in order to reconstruct their geological evolution?
  • How do submarine volcanoes and volcanic islands evolve?
