Ricarda Gatter is an Early Stage Researcher in the European Training Network SLATE, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, at MARUM, University of Bremen (Germany), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Katrin Huhn (MARUM) and Dr. Michael Clare (NOC, Southampton, UK). Her PhD project focuses on the investigation of failure planes of submarine landslides, and aims to understand in which material submarine landslides initiate and why. The awarded poster presented an initial global synthesis of submarine landslide studies that focus on weak layers and their role in the formation of failure planes. The aim of the presented work was to identify prominent horizons within the slope stratigraphy along which submarine landslides preferentially initiate.
