Research in the Institute for Geology, Mineralogy and Geophysics


Our institute has several working groups that are intensively involved in cutting-edge research. Learn more about the work of the individual working groups by clicking on the links below and find out which large-scale collaborative research projects we are currently involved in!



Die Arbeitsgruppe Kristallographie befasst sich vor allem mit der Untersuchung und Interpretation von Zusammenhängen zwischen Struktur und Eigenschaften von Kristallen. 

Petrology and Geochemistry

Current Research

Research work in Petrology in the department is divided into three directions:
Experimental studies, studies of natural systems (with components of field work, as well as studies of samples from inaccessible regions such as the deep mantle or meteorites), and modelling/ theoretical studies.
