The Research Group Geomorphology is part of the Department for Geography and Geology at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg and focusses on earth surface dynamics and human impacts on landscapes in various environments. We apply and develop state-of-the-art lab and field methods focusing on surface and subsurface analysis, process dynamics and dating techniques. Our research is embedded into a network of national and international scientist, consulting companies and local authorities.
