Research is mainly focussing on hydrogeomorphological processes at various scales from small catchments (50-150 ha) to large river basins (Upper Blue Nile) in relationship to land use and cover, land management and climate variability.
Long-term (Late-Holocene), Medium-term (<200 years) and present-day dynamics are studied using various methodologies including:
Furthermore, the research group is also involved in geoarcheological investigations in Egypt, Iran, and the study of permafrost in the Russian Altai Mountains and development projects in Ethiopia.
