Welcome to LIAG

We are the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics - LIAG. The LIAG is an independent, research institute that uses geophysical methods to solve geoscientific questions. The focus of our work is exploring structures and processes in the subsurface, and the development of methods and techniques required in geophysics, geohydraulics, geothermics, and geochronology.

Research targets are directed to address the needs of the society and solve issues of future concern. The institute's activities are mainly in Germany. It cooperates with national and international partners.

The Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics is the renamed former GGA-Institut or 'Institut für Geowissenschaftliche Gemeinschaftsaufgaben', in German. It was  founded by law in Lower Saxony in the year 2000.
