Forschung

Hi, my name is Wolfgang Schwanghart. I am PostDoc at the University of Potsdam, Institute of Earth and Environmental Science and member of the project PROGRESS. I am with the geohazards group which seeks to detect and objectively quantify the frequency, magnitude, and consequence of potentially adverse natural processes at different spatial and temporal scales.

I am advised by Oliver Korup and work closely with Tobias Heckmann (KU Eichstätt), Goswin Heckrath, Geoff Groom (both University of Aarhus) and Thomas Jarmer (University of Osnabrueck). Prior to my PostDoc I received my doctorate from the Geographical Institute at the Freie Universität Berlin, where I worked with Brigitta Schütt (FU Berlin) and Manfred Frechen (LIAG Hannover) to study Climate and Environmental Change around Lake Ugii Nuur in Central Mongolia. I worked closely with Nikolaus Kuhn at the University of Basel for a couple of years on the terrestrial carbon cycle and digital terrain modelling. Additional interest in statistical modelling in ecology and biodiversity was spurred by Jan Beck during this time.

My research interests are Earth Surface Processes and Quaternary Science. My particular focus is on digital terrain analysis and landscape evolution modelling. My favorite software is MATLAB and I have written software to conduct DEM analysis and numerous, useful functions for geospatial analysis. My current interests are in statistical modelling of geomorphic extreme events. With Tobias Heckmann, I am exploring graph theoretical applications in geomorphology. Together with Goswin Heckrath and Geoff Groom, I am working on high resolution DEM and orthoimage analysis in Danish agricultural areas to study the dynamics of water inundation and waterlogging.
