Research Subjects

At SeisLab Aarhus we undertake research and education, and we have a long tradition for research & development projects in collaboration with our industry partners. Our subjects of research cover the fields of structural geology, sequence stratigraphy, sedimentary basin analysis, petroleum systems including analysis of subsurface fluid migration and focused fluid flow features, geohazards including mass transport, sediment remobilization, paleolandscape reconstruction, marine geo-archaeology, and shallow subsurface and seafloor processes (including varying ice-sheet related processes) relevant for offshore constructions such as wind farms and platforms and a sustainable usage of the shallow subsurface in near-coastal settings.
