Geophysics Section

© Abteilung Geophysik, IfGeo, Uni Bonn

Research foci of the Geophysics Section at the University of Bonn comprise geophysical imaging methods, modeling of coupled flow and transport processes in porous and fractured media, and integration of process models and geophysical data through petrophysical models.

Applications in these fields are manifold and include soil / aquifer characterization, monitoring of subsurface flow, transport and biogeochemical processes, in the context of water management, contaminated site characterization / remediation, soil-root interactions, permafrost characterization, enhanced geothermal systems, mud volcanoes, and slope (in)stability.

News from within the Geophysics Section
Winter Wonder 2022

As part of the Christmas lecture on the module "Applied Geophysics", students were able to geophysically confirm the existence of a suspected marzipan core.

6th International Workshop on Induced Polarization

From June 27th to 30th 2022 the 6th International Workshop on Induced Polarization took place in Annecy, France. The Geophysics Section of the University of Bonn contributed with three posters about their recent research activities to the conference.

Geophysical measurements on the North Sea island Spiekeroog

In May 2022, the Geophysics Section conducted a field trip of several days to the North Sea island of Spiekeroog, as part of the course Hydrogeophysics in the Master's degree program in Physics of the Earth and Atmosphere.


E-TEST: Einstein Telescope EMR Site & Technology

The Geophysics Section contributes to the implementation of the underground observatory and the development of the (hydro)geological model for the potential Einstein-Telescope (ET), an advanced gravitational-wave observatory, currently in the planning stage.
