Evolution of seismicity at the western end of the 1999 Izmit rupture
Ten major earthquakes with magnitudes above Ms > 6.5 migrated along the North-Anatolian fault zone (NAFZ) between 1939 and 1999. The western end of the 1999 Izmit earthquake rupture is located south of Istanbul next to the northern shoreline of the Armutlu Peninsula depicted by distinct clusters of micro-seismic activity........

Physics of Magma Propagation and Emplacement: a multi-methodological Investigation
Cross-Border Natural Disaster Prevention in Central Asia
This project aims to contribute to seismic risk reduction in the region. It has been initiated by the Federal Foreign Office Germany, InWEnt and the Helmholtz Zentrum Potsdam Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum.
The aim of the Centre for Early Warning is to develop and implement methodologies for early warning of various natural hazards (earthquakes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, floods, landslides).

Graduate school for Explorative Simulation of Earth Sciences
GEOSIM is a new graduate research school funded by the Helmholtz association and grants....
Quantification of extreme ground-motions
The understanding and modeling of ground motions related to earthquake ruptures is of major importance for seismic hazard analysis. I
Large scale intrusion, lateral magma reservoir growth and stress field changes at Lazufre volcano, Chile
Collapsed calderas are the morphological and structural surface expression of magma reservoirs that emptied during large volcanic eruptions and may reach diameters of tens of kilometers. Abundant remnants of such collapse.....
New Multi-Hazard and Multi-Risk Assessment Methods for Europe
Natural hazards and risks are often assessed individually by scientists, engineers and civil protection authorities. This is despite the fact that different hazards.......
Convergent plate boundaries at continental margins belong to the tectonically most active areas on earth and are the potential source of devastating earthquakes and tsunamis. While the bulk of strain accumulation......
Monitoring and Imaging based on Interferometric Concepts
Recent years have witnessed the emergence of a new field in seismology (Courtland, 2008). New concepts from mesoscopic physics have dramatically changed the seismologists’ view on ambient noise and seismic coda. Being disturbing signals that hinder the detection of earthquakes only six years ago these wave fields become a major source of information that is used with seismic interferometry.
MINing Environments: continuous monitoring and simultaneous inversion
The MINE project intends to develop and implement tools to monitor mining areas and underground reservoirs,........
