RockTalk: Latest Research & Challenges in GeosciencesCopyright: © L. Greiner
What is the current state of research in the geosciences? What topics and issues are researchers working on? What influence do digitalisation and climate change have on the geosciences?
The Division of Geosciences and Geography proudly presents the lecture series RockTalk: Latest Research & Challenges in Geosciences. The lecture series will present current research results and the latest challenges in the geosciences. The lectures are aimed at all interested parties.
Do you have a topic suggestion or are you particularly interested in a geoscientific topic? Then contact us! We look forward to your suggested topics!

115 years of sediment accumulation in the Eifel Mountains
Human influence on fluvial system has greatly increased in the last decades, either by directly modifying the catchment area or by anthropogenic climate change. The sediments of the artificial Urft reservoir represent a unique archive of human influence on the sediment accumulation and composition of the last 115 years. The reservoir was completely drained due to construction work in November 2020. This offered the rare opportunity to sample the deposits in detail and to record the entire lake area photogrammetrically using an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Based on the constructed digital elevation model with a resolution of around 5 cm and topographic maps from the year 1897 the sediment budget was calculated. Geochemical markers were used to quantify the anthropogenic influence on the sediments in the form of mining-induced pollutant contamination.
