Research Interests

  • Detection and quantification of natural gas seeps in the Baltic Sea as well as estimations of resulting methane flux to the water column
  • Bathymetry, Snippet Sidescan and Water Column Imaging using multibeam sonars
  • Split-beam echosounder tracking of gas seeps and evaluation of gas bubble sizes
  • Sediment echosounding
  • Shallow gas in Holocene sediments
  • Pockmarks and their formation
  • Shallow subbottom analysis
  • Glacial paleo landscapes of the North Sea
  • High-resolution marine reflection seismics
