Research Theme: Geology and Geophysics

A wide range of internationally recognized research is conducted in the fields of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Tübingen. Our research emphasizes the characterization and quantification of geological and geophysical processes ranging from the scale of continents and mountain building processes to the study of hydrocarbon reservoir characteristics, near surface geophysical investigations, and the micro-scale deformation of rocks and minerals. Our research goals include:

The previous research themes are investigated through an interdisciplinary cooperation between several work groups in our department. These groups include:
