Logo-Refresh: LIAG Institute for Applied Geophysics

In future, we will operate under our own LIAG brand as the "LIAG Institute for Applied Geophysics"! With currently 40 ongoing research projects, the doubling of third-party funding (especially DFG), our own science-oriented administration and the bundling of our methods, we will continue to research the topics of groundwater systems, geohazards and georeservoirs as energy sources and energy storage.
