Prof. Shmuel Marco from the Department of Geophysics at the Tel Aviv University came to Innsbruck to teach and work together with colleagues at the Department of Geology.
His research areas include Earthquakes, Palaeoseismology, Archaeoseismology, Soft-sediment-deformation, Palaeomagnetism, Archaeomagnetism and Palaeomagnetic-secular-variation.
Prof. Shmuel Marco said that he was visiting the University of Innsbruck because the best and most advanced group of geologists that specializes in sedimentary geology, particularly in using lake sediments as paleo-earthquake recorders, is found here. "The geology department is vibrant, very active, well-equipped, and the research that is carried out here is at the world cutting edge. The University of Innsbruck offers the best combination of marvelous location and outstanding research opportunities", said Prof. Marco.
He was hosted by Prof. Michael Strasser and his team.
AIANI was pleased to have Prof. Marco here in Innsbruck and is looking foward to hear about future projects!
