Chair of Mathematical and Physical Geodesy


We contribute to the advancement of science and the formation of experts in the field of space geodesy and navigation. We are convinced of the high societal relevance of space geodesy and positioning to monitor, precisely quantify and reliably predict changes in our environment and in the ever-changing Earth’s system. We are pursuing our goals by integrating excellent research, innovative technical developments, profound education and international collaborations.

Research


Two major challenges in Earth monitoring today are the fast response to catastrophic events (e.g., earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides) and the reliable detection of very small long-term trends (e.g., sea level change, plate tectonics). Read more
