Niklas Hohmann, a student from our Master program, published a new statistical tool that allow to correct the effects of changing deposition rates on geological data. These deposition rates determine how much time it takes to form rocks of a given thickness, and can therefore alter our interpretation of paleobiological rates when examining this rock.Continue

Carbonate rocks are unique witnesses of Earth History as they are formed by organisms. From the 11th to the 22nd of March the annual “Flügel Courses” take place in Erlangen. 54 carbonate sedimentologists from 21 nations will train the interpretation of such rocks with our globally unique thin-section collection.Continue
Prof. Wolfgang Kiessling was at the Royal Society Meeting "The Past is a Foreign Country" in London to present a lecture on " Marine ecosystem responses to temperature-related stressors through time".
Not only geologists are in love with rocks, climbers are too. Our Paleobiology student Niklas Hohmann discusses the geology of Franconian Switzerland, our local climbing area close to Erlangen and birthplace of modern sports climbing.Continue
Palaeobiology student Niklas Hohmann connects mathematics and paleontology in unexpected ways. In his contribution for the 1st palaeontologcial virtual congress, he describes how a blurring effect used by Instagram and Photoshop can be used to describe how extinction events are preserved in the fossil record.Continue
