Projects involving the department Rock Physics & Borehole Geophysics

The department deals with both third-party funded projects and LIAG funded projects. The work is divided among the method-specific research fields of the department and the topics in the main research areas of the institute.

Third-party projects

  • REGROUP
    Multi-proxy dataset of soil samples from Serbia
  • REgine
    Geophysical-geological based reservoir engineering for deep-seated carbonates
  • Chronostratigraphy and geomagnetics in loess-paleo soil sequences from Iran
    Comparison with geomagnetic proxies along a precipitation gradient south of the Caspian Sea
  • Lake Towuti
