The aim of this project is to study the structure of the mantle lithosphere beneath South Africa.

The seismic gap in Northern Chile is intensively monitored by the IPOC network operated by GFZ and cooperating institutions.

High-resolution seismic observation of the lithosphere is hampered due to a number of factors.

With the availability of sensors for the measurement of rotational motion of the Earth’s surface new possibilities for seismological investigations emerge.

We operated a densely spaced broadband seismic field experiment to study the structure of the crust and mantle lithosphere across the Sierra Nevada mountain range, southern Spain.

Madagascar is a complicated amalgamation of continental fragments, some of which are dating back to the Archaean.(2012 - 2014)

In this project we will apply targeted seismological techniques to image the plate interface, i.e., the subduction channel and its immediate surroundings.

Monitoring and Imaging based on Interferometric Concepts

NERA is an EC infrastructure project that integrates key research infrastructures in Europe for monitoring earthquakes and assessing their hazard and risk.

NERA (2010-2014) is an EC infrastructure project that integrates key research infrastructures in Europe for monitoring earthquakes and assessing their hazard and risk.

After the successful implementation of the Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System (InaTEWS) within the GITEWS project Germany continues to support Indonesia during the first years of system operation with measures focused on training, education and consulting in the following areas (end of the project. 2014)

We propose to address fundamental questions on the processes that form, modify and destroy continental lithosphere and control lithospheric dynamics along Andean-type continental margins through a collaborative international passive-source seismic experiment in the southern Puna of the Central Andean plateau (25°S to 28°S).

We operate 5 broadband stations on the island of Gran Canaria for two years (2009-2011).

When mantle rocks are subject to large strain, the mineral grains of olivine and some other minerals align, causing the velocity of seismic waves passing though this material to vary as a function of direction of propagation and polarization (seismic anisotropy).

South America is an assembly of all classified types of the plate tectonic units.

We use the large amount of seismic data recorded by seismic networks in Europe to study the lithosphere and mantle transition zone in the continent-ocean transition with SS precursors.

We study deep structures and geodynamic processes in the Tien Shan and Pamir collision zones, central Asia, with passive source seismic experiments in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

The Etendeka continental flood-basalt province in northern Namibia, linked by the Walvis Ridge to the Tristan da Cunha hotspot, has a great importance in global plate tectonic concepts, and is an ideal place to understand the role of the plume-lithosphere interaction during break-up of the Southern Atlantic Ocean.
