The management of LIAG condemns the Russian attack on Ukraine and the associated violation of international law and fully supports the statement published by the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany.
LIAG offers to support Ukrainian refugee scientists in submitting joint research proposals.
In around 110 pages, the Research Report 2021 once again presents a selection of exciting highlights and project activities in the context of geophysical research into groundwater, geohazards, geothermal energy and climate and landscape change.
Every year, the state of Lower Saxony and the Volkswagen Foundation fund outstanding scientific projects with the "Niedersächsisches Vorab". Now a special network of state-wide research competencies has been selected, in which natural science meets the humanities.
Researchers at the LIAG and the Leibniz University of Hannover have developed an approach to detect the connection between disaggregation bands - centimetre-thick zones of deformed sediments - and the neotectonic activity of hidden faults in the subsurface.
Great interest in the potential of applied geophysics: Lower Saxony's Minister of Science Björn Thümler visited the LIAG at the IdeenExpo 2022 in Hanover, Germany, to learn more about research in, among other things, groundwater and soil protection, salinisation as well as geohazards and geothermal energy!
Independence from natural gas imports: Meta-study on the potential of geothermal energy as a renewable energy and as a substitute for fossil fuels in the heat supply in Germany makes it clear that without immediate measures to expand geothermal energy, it is not possible to build up the eco-heat sector to achieve the national climate protection goals.
On the North Sea coast off Spiekeroog, the DynaDeep research project has installed the SAMOS saltwater monitoring system developed at LIAG directly on the beach. The aim of the project is to install an underground measuring field to investigate the transition zones between the groundwater aquifers on high-energy beaches and the sea.
Aerial survey with drones in Spain successfully completed: The LIAG, in cooperation with the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster, has carried out another aerial survey for the exploration of ore deposits using the novel semi-airborne electromagnetics method in the joint project DESMEX II until the end of May 2022.
