In research the focus of the Seismology and Seismology group is on the development and application of seismic imaging, inversion and modelling techniques for both active and passive excitations. Our activities cover the entire spectrum of seismic data acquisition, from data recording to the interpretation of results.

In addition, the affiliated Berggießhübel Seismological Observatory has been continuously recording local and global earthquake data since 1966. These data are continuously analysed and form an integral part of the global seismological monitoring network.
