As part of this thesis, a new strategy for the inversion of stress states from fault-slip data is introduced (Chapter 2). This new approach is applied to data sampled from outcrops along the southern margin of the CEBS (Chapter 4) and from outcrops in the Oslo Graben area (Chapter 5). The results derived from these study areas deliver new insights into the evolution of paleostress fields that controlled the development of the entire CEBS.
Definition of functionals of the geopotential and their calculation from spherical harmonic models : theory and formulas used by the calculation service of the International Centre for Global Earth Models (ICGEM), http://icgem.gfz-potsdam.deBarthelmes Franz
The intention of this article is to present the definitions of different functionals of the Earth's gravity field and possibilities for their approximative calculation from a mathematical representation of the outer potential. [...]More or less, what is compiled here is well-known in physical geodesy but distributed over a lot of articles and books which are not cited here. In the first instance this text is targeted at non-geodesists and it should be "stand-alone readable".
Datenbank zum vereinheitlichten Erdbebenkatalog für Zentral-, Nord- und Nordwesteuropa (CENEC) - aktualisiert und erweitert für das letzte JahrtausendG. Grünthal, R. Wahlström & D. Stromeyer
New databases motivate improvements and extensions of the catalogue by Grünthal and Wahlström (J Seismol 7:507–531, 2003a) – G&W03 – of earthquakes in central, northern, and northwestern Europe with Mw ≥ 3.50. Data from over 30 regional catalogues, the International Seismological Centre and U.S. National Earthquake Information Center bulletins for the NE Atlantic Ocean, and many special studies were analysed, largely along the lines of the previous study. Non-tectonic, non-seismic, and non-existing as well as duplicate events...
Inter-technique combination based on homogeneous normal equation systems including station coordinates, earth orientation and troposphere parametersThaller Daniela
[...] Studies regarding the theory of this correlation and how to handle it when estimating sub-daily polar motion together with nutation are included in the thesis.Furthermore, it is demonstrated that the common estimation of the terrestrial reference frame and EOPs can be employed to identify a mismatch between the local tie values and the estimated coordinate differences at co-located sites. Thus, the EOPs offer another independent evaluation of the LT values, as mentioned already above...
Paleoenvironmental changes in the Black Sea region during the last 26,000 years : a multi-proxy study of lacustrine sediments from the western Black SeaKwiecien Olga
One significant outcome of my thesis is an improved chronostraphigraphical framework for the glacial lacustrine unit of the Black Sea sediment cores, which allowed to refine the environmental history of the Black Sea region and enabled a reliable correlation with data from other marine and terrestrial archives. Data gathered along a N-S transect presented on a common time scale revealed coherent changes in the basin and its surrounding. [...]My PhD thesis is based on four...
