Section 2: Geoelectrics and Electromagnetics

Section members in March 2016

The section conducts experimental and theoretical research to image the subsurface structure and to characterize processes that change the subsurface using electromagnetic methods. Imaging und chracterization therefore base on the physical properties electrical conductivity, dielectric permitivity and magnetic permeability.

Our research focuses on the development of resistivity methods, georadar and surface-NMR while forward and inverse modeling methods are a cross-cutting topic. Our research is motivated by understanding groundwater resourches, partly saturated media and soils. Especially exploring spatial and temporal variations to describe dynamic processing at the salt-freshwater interface and developing methods that allow to fuse different scales are of interest.
