My research focuses on the field of marine mineral resources. My aim is to contribute to a comprehensive bathymetric and geological survey of the oceans to provide politicians and the public with reliable data on resource potentials in the deep sea. For this reason, an understanding of the geological evolution of the oceans is required. This is approached through the integration of observations from multiple research cruises and drilling with results from modern petrological and geochemical methods using GIS-based applications.
