Research interests:

Modern coastal sedimentology in the Arctic, reconstruction of climate and sea level from the sedimentological record, sand body geometries in fluvial to nearshore environments.

Ongoing research projects:

  • Sedimentology of a high Arctic tidal flat (RIS-ID 6692)
  • Geological input to carbon storage: from outcrop to simulator (GeC)
  • Sedimentology of the Central Basin Paleogene succession (RIS-ID 3046)
  • Evolution of the Kongsfjorden south coast shoreline (RIS-ID 4839)
  • Stratigraphy of the Quaternary Kapp Ekholm section (RIS-ID 2562)

Recent projects:

  • HACOSE – Multitemporal analysis of High Arctic Coastal Systems Evolution – Braganzavågen and Bjonapynten, Svalbard (RIS-ID 6019)
  • Depositional environments and palaeoclimate developments in the Aspelintoppen Formation, Svalbard (RIS-ID 3574)
  • SciencePub – SciencePub website
