SSP blog goes live!

We are delighted to officially launch the blog of the Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Palaeontology (SSP) division of the EGU! Our community is broad and interdisciplinary, and we hope to establish a platform for sharing up-to-date information on SSP related topics such as (but not limited to):

  • Latest news, publications and reviews in SSP academic and applied research;
  • Recent development in analytical and technological approaches and modelling;
  • Field trips, workshops, conferences, and meetings.

This is a blog from and for the SSP community and we welcome contributions from students, early and senior professionals of the field. For further information on how to get involved please contact our SSP ECS Representative Alena Ebinghaus (

Best wishes, and enjoy following us!

Stéphane, Guilhem, Cinzia, Chris and Alena

After graduating at the University of Bonn in 2010, Alena Ebinghaus took up a PhD project at the University of Aberdeen, examining inter-lava sedimentation and plant ecosystem development in the Columbia River Flood Basalt Province, Washington State. Following her graduation in 2014, Alena joined the University of Aberdeen as a post-doctoral researcher. In her current research, Alena focuses on the understanding of continental environments during past rapid climate warming, such as the Early Danian Dan-C2 event and the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. Since 2017, Alena has served as the Early Career Scientist (ECS) representative of the SSP division.
