Department 6: Geotechnologies

Director of Department: Prof. Dr. Magdalena Scheck-Wenderoth

Supplying humankind with raw materials and energy is an increasingly complex challenge, which makes the research, the development and the utilization of georesources essential services for the general public. The safety, efficiency and the necessary progresses in technology can only be achieved with a fundamental understanding for operational processes. The objective of the department ‘geotechnologies’ is to combine geological, geophysical and geochemical methods, as well as laboratory experiments and process simulations with large-scale applied projects and corresponding field experiments.

The research of Department 6 is organised in four sections:
