Applied and Environmental Geophysics

The research focuses on exploring the structure of the Earth and its physical properties from the micrometer to the kilometer scale. The major axes of the research are (i) the improved modeling and inversion of geophysical measurements, (ii) the use of these techniques to infer spatial and temporal variations in physical properties, and (iii) the links between these properties and target variables of interest. The state-of-the-art instrument pool, laboratory facilities, and computational resources allow for multi-method investigation of a wide range of geological, environmental, and hydrological problems.
