Applied Geophysics group at the Institute of Geophysics, WWU Münster

The primary objective of applied geophysics is to image the physical properties of the earth’s crust with geophysical measurements. The focus of the applied geophysics group at the WWU is on electromagnetic exploration, magnetotellurics, archeogeophysics, petrophysics, inversion techniques and instrument development.
