Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam (GIPP)

The "Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam (GIPP)" provides seismic and magnetotelluric instruments and sensors for joint projects with universities and other research facilities. It is hosted by Section 2.2 "Geophysical Deep Sounding" of the GeoForschungsZenrum Potsdam (GFZ). Since its foundation in 1993 the GIPP has supported more than 258 geoscientific projects. The GIPP is part of the Modular Earth Science Infrastructure (MESI) at GFZ.

The proceedings of instrument supply on loan are laid down in "Rules of instrument supply on loan through the geophysical Instrument Pool (GIPP) of the GFZ". For application see link "Application". A steering board, which convenes twice a year, evaluates the applications and makes recommendations. The decision for the allocation of the instruments is made by the Executive Board of the GFZ.

The next steering board meeting will take place in .... 2018.

Accordingly, the deadline for applications is September 10, 2017. The actual preparation of a project has to be coordinated with the Working Group GIPP, which is also reponsible for the GIPP technical maintenance.

Pool components: Seismics/Seismology, DEPAS, Magnetotellurics
