Gerold Zeilinger is geologist, specialist in remote sensing, and researcher at the Institute of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Potsdam. His research focuses on deformation processes, structures at various scales and the complex feedback mechanisms acting between erosion and crustal response. His specific interest is in the analysis of this feedback between endogeneous and exogeneous processes in mountains (e.g. Andes, Himalaya, Makran) and their forelands. Remote sensing applications are used for surface change detection and quantification, whereas additional methods like structural mapping, thermochronology and modelling identify the endogeneous element.
