The Limnogeology Laboratory investigates lake sediments of various temporal and spatial scales in order to reconstruct environmental changes of the past. These include for instance climate change, catastrophic events or human impact. There is a variety or research projects using the approach developed in the context of marine geology and geophysics, including modern limnologic calibrations, seismic surveying, sediment coring and diverse analytical techniques. In addition, limnogeology is part of the courses in the Earth Science curriculum and the focus of a series of diploma theses, emphasizing the educational significance of investigating lacustrine basins.
