GEG Courses



X.‑Z. Kong, T. Driesner, A. Ebigbo, A. Moreira Mulin Leal, 651-4240-00L GEG-instructors involved: X.‑Z. Kong, A. Ebigbo, A. Moreira Mulin Leal
This course presents advanced topics of single and multiphase fluid flow, heat transfer, reactive transport, and geochemical reactions in the subsurface. Emphasis is on the understanding of the underlying governing equations of each physical and chemical process, and its relevance to applications, e.g., groundwater management, geothermal energy, CO2 storage, waste disposal, and oil/gas production.


A. Ebigbo, 651-3508-00L
The course offers an introduction to Hydrogeology:

  • Why is groundwater so important to us?
  • How does one extract groundwater?
  • How can the distribution and movement of groundwater be characterised?

Integrated Earth Systems III

S. Heuberger, T. Driesner, A. Gilli, M. O. Saar, J. Niederau 651-4180-03L GEG-instructors involved: M. O. Saar, J. Niederau
The course Integrated Earth Systems III addresses geological resources (georesources) from an integrative perspective. The course covers three interacting focus themes:

  • non-metallic mineral resources (aggregates, cement raw materials, hydrocarbons)
  • geothermal resources (geothermal energy)
  • metallic mineral resources (ores)

Case Studies I in Exploration and Environmental Geophysics

H. Maurer, J. Robertsson, M. Hertrich, M. O. Saar 651-4087-00L GEG-instructors involved: M. O. Saar
Integrated geophysical investigations; applications of exploration seismic; applications of high-resolution seismic, ground-penetrating radar, magnetic, gravity, electromagnetic, geoelectric and nuclear-magnetic resonance methods; case studies.

Geothermal Energy

M. O. Saar, B. Adams, P. Bayer, F. Samrock 651-4109-00L GEG-instructors involved: M. O. Saar, B. Adams, F. Samrock
The course will introduce students to the general principles of Geothermics and is suitable for students who have a basic knowledge of Geoscience or Environmental Science (equivalent of a Bachelor degree)..

Deep Electromagnetic Sounding of the Earth and Planetary Interiors

A. Kuvshinov, A. Grayver, F. Samrock 651-5104-00L GEG-instructors involved: F. Samrock
The course guides students in learning about phenomenon of the electromagnetic induction in the Earth and other terrestrial planets. The course focuses on analysis and interpretation of long-period time-varying EM fields observed on the ground and in space, which are used to image electrical conductivity in the Earth and planetary interiors.

Geophysical Field Lab

A. Obermann and other 651-3581-00L GEG-instructors involved: X.-Z. Kong
The geophysical field lab is a hands-on introduction into several methods of geophysical prospecting.
After a day of introduction, eight techniques are explored in half-day field experiments: Active Seismic, seismic noise measurements, gravimetrie, geomagnetics, geoelectrics and geothermal measurements.
