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.


January 2019: LIAG installs salt water monitoring system SAMOS at Jever

The sustainable use of water resources is a particular challenge in coastal regions worldwide. Salinisation can endanger the groundwater and thus the drinking water supply. For a long-term study of the freshwater-saltwater boundary in the subsurface, LIAG employees recently installed a vertical electrode chain in the area close to the Ems-Jade Canal at a depth of about 30-50 m. With this measuring system, physical parameters are recorded daily and evaluated as part of the go-CAM project.
