Norbert Frank University Heidelberg, Faculty of Physics and Geosciences

  Norbert Frank is a Professor for Environmental Physics at Heidelberg University. His research on the physics of environmental archives will build a new bridge towards the Geosciences and the Curt-Engelhorn-Centre Archaeometry gGmbH, Mannheim. After studying physics and earning a doctorate in Heidelberg Norbert Frank spent two years as a DFG fellow at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, New York. The research focus was Norbert Frank radiogenic isotopes as ocean circulation tracers. In 2001, he was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship to join the Climate and Environmental Sciences Laboratory (LSCE) in Gif-sur-Yvette, France, where he became a researcher of the commission for nuclear and alternative energies (CEA) from 2002 until he became Professor in Heidelberg. Throughout national and international projects the research team at LSCE focused on climate recordings from corals using cutting edge mass spectrometer facilities. Over the course of his career Norbert Frank participated in numerous research cruises and in 2012 he led a team of scientists on the French research vessel Thallasa to South Iceland, to collect corals for future climate rsearch. In Heidelberg he is developing new isotope tracers and technologies to constrain further the fundamental role of the oceans and the hydrosphere in the complex climate system.
