Physical Geography and Environmental Research

-Prof. Dr. J. Kubiniok-



Prof. Dr. Jochen Kubiniok and his team mainly focus their work on questions about river morphology and river ecology, both in research and teaching. Furthermore, another research interest is about  environmental change influenced by climate change and anthropogenic activities. In addition to linking research and teaching, a connection to practical experiences is achieved through a long-term  collaboration with ministries, regional authorities and environmental organizations.


The methodological focus is on environmental analysis, applied geoinformatics, pedology, geomorphology and remote sensing. There are a great number of collaborations with local and regional authorities and engineering consultants. Together with the European Culture Park Bliesbruck-Reinheim there exists a cross-border cooperation with French institutions.
