🏫 Insitute of Earth Sciences, Heidelberg University


The focus of research at the Heidelberg Institute of Earth Sciences is in the fields of solid Earth (including mineralogy, petrology, isotope geology ,and sedimentology), cosmochemistry, environmental geochemistry, paleoenvironment and paleoclimate research, paleontology, and archeometry. These research groups emphasize analyzing processes both qualitatively and quantitatively using state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation. The high analytical competence of geoscientific research in Heidelberg is demonstrated by the 2014 commissioning of the national laboratory for secondary ion mass spectrometry.
