The Chair of Structural Geology and Tectonics performs research on deforming reservoirs, diagenesis and rock magnetics. We predict porous and fractured rock qualities and 3D heterogeneities of rock bodies, and design digital rocks in interdisciplinary teams.
Rock alteration and associated material- and fluid transport is characterized and modeled using comprehensive analytics and fundamental experiments. The structural diagenesis is quantified from micro- to reservoir scale.
Rock magnetic properties and its anisotropy is studied from sedimentary to basement rocks and is applied on a wide range of geological processes. This ranges from microstructural analyses to stratigraphic correlations.
Economic analyses and management options assess the utilization of reservoirs and geo-storage of renewable energy. Our innovation improves exploration and production of geothermal fluids, hydrocarbons and raw materials.
