Institute of Geological Sciences


Welcome to the Institute of Geological Sciences

  • We congratulate Markus Stoffel for the nomination for the "Denali Awards 2015". The American Association of Geographers (AAG) honours his outstanding work on climate change impacts on mass movement in the Swiss Alps (paleoenvironment reconstructions). Markus Stoffel has been a leader in recent years of an effort to reconstruct rockfall and debris-flow activity using tree rings and to study the effects of climate on their occurrence. He is the first researcher outside North America to receive this award.
