Main areas of study


Prof. Dr. Schafmeister, Dr. Meyer

Hydrogeology is a special field of applied geology, which deals with the water in the subsoil. Investigations are, among other things, the origin, the nature and the flow behaviour of groundwater, the interactions of the groundwater with surface waters, as well as the various rocks that the water flows through. Continue reading...

Mathematical Geology

Prof. Dr. Schafmeister

Mathematical geology is the application of mathematical methods to geological questions. Statistical methods, numerical modelling, PC-based simulations and GIS applications are part of the craft of this section of applied geology. Continue reading...

Engineering Geology

Dr. Meyer

  • Production of the underground parts of a building
  • Stable foundation =>
    • no tilting
    • no slipping
    • no  adverse soil/rock conditions
  • Waterproofing against ground moisture and ground water Continue reading...

Applied Geophysics

Dr. Büttner

Lectures in geophysics covers the entire range of geophysics. Gravimetry, magnetics, geoelectrics, electromagnetics, seismology and seismics are studied. This gives students a solid basic knowledge of the individual procedures involved in geophysics. Continue reading...
