Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics

Welcome to LIAG

The Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics (LIAG) is an independent research institute that conducts research on the upper part of the Earth's crust. The focus of our work is to explore structures and processes in the subsurface by using geophysical methods. For this purpose, we develop and optimize measurement techniques as well as processing, modeling, and inversion methods. Our research is future-oriented and of public interest.

We are member of the Leibniz Association.

Unearth the true age: Prize for contributions in age dating

The Japanese Quarternary Association awarded a prize to Dr. Sumiko Tsukamoto of the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics (LIAG, Hannover) for her outstanding research in the field of age determination of sediments with electron spin resonance (ESR) and luminescence dating methods at the annual meeting in Japan. The meeting was held in Tokyo from 24th to 26th of August, 2018.

ESR and luminescence dating are physical methods that are relevant for a multitude of possible applications. Among...
