Institute of Geophysics and Geoinformatics
In research and teaching, we focus on the development and application of new and advanced methods for the investigation and characterization of structures and processes within the Earth's interior.
On the geophysical side, the scope of our activities is centered on applied techniques to explore the earth from the near surface down to depths of about 100 km. For this purpose, we develop numerical simulation and imaging/inversion software for electromagnetic fields and seismic waves, which play a fundamental role for the discovery and utilization of energy and resources (oil/gas, minerals, geothermal reservoirs, water, etc.).
On the geoinformatics side, the main activities concern mathematical and statistical methods to store, manage, analyse and retrieve geoscience data and models. We design spatio-temporal databases and information systems and are strongly involved in both the development and application of methods for 3D geomodeling. Furthermore, we contribute to the gOcad project.
Within a strong Faculty of Geosciences, Geoengineering and Mining we are engaged in conceptual developments for an environmentally reasonable and sustainable usage of resources.
