Institute of Geophysics and Geology
Geoscientists explore the “Earth System” and decipher its historical development. Understanding the past, natural conditions and changes to this system without human influence forms an essential basis for assessing current environmental changes.
Geosciences as a major subject
Geological-geophysical degree programmes (B.Sc., M.Sc.) are no longer offered at Leipzig University.
We investigate earth-historical environmental changes and current geohazards. This includes geophysical monitoring of volcanoes and earthquake zones or research into prehistoric climate and environmental changes. Our research areas range from Antarctica to the tropics.
Contact and Directions
Our institute is located at Talstraße 35 in the immediate vicinity of the Bayerischer Bahnhof and opposite the University Hospital in Liebigstraße.
