New geophysical field course

Posted on 2024/05/23

A highlight of studying applied geosciences is the possibility to put acquired knowledge into practice. In cooperation with the Chair of Computational Geoscience, Geothermics and Reservoir Geophysics (Dr. Christin Bobe) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (Prof. Jan van der Kruk), we have conducted a new geophysical field course with 20 students from our B. Sc. and M. Sc. programs in Applied Geosciences.

Close to Bausenberg in the East Eifel region, a buried lava flow was investigated with seismic, geoelectrical, magnetic and electromagnetic methods accompanied by sunny weather and blooming canola fields. In the coming weeks, the students will process, visualize and interpret their own data to model the buried lava flow. Based on the positive feedback from all participants, the course will be offered on a regular basis in the future.
