Reading about climate change can be overwhelming. There are many questions asked and many implications for humans. The typhoon on the Philippines shows once again that Earth is changing. But the data alone isn’t very telling. No one I know has actually read those reports or has understood them very well. What does it mean […]
I have compiled a live story of tweets and more information of the SWARM mission that launched today. Be sure to check it out!
Geophysics can get a little fancy. You have probably heard the geophysicists tend to hang around some mathematicians. When it comes to the topic of math most of my friends like to state: “I was good at math until they started mixing in the alphabet!” I hear ya. Complex numbers and pi and variables are […]
One big reason to go into geophysics is pretty obvious: Volcanoes! I got to know Boris Behncke during my high school years. He’s a geophysicist situated in Sicily, Italy. And to our fortune he’s quite keen on photography and shares these gems on various platforms. The latest paroxysm produced a very special event: That moment, […]
Imaging the subsurface has become more and more complex. If we want to get a state-of-the-art image we might consider a slanted multi-component streamer acquisition and process it with a full waveform inversion to finish it off with a nice pre-stack Gaussian beam migration. Yeah… Even as a geophysics master student this is some tough […]
We often look at the Oil & Gas industry and wonder how anyone would be willing to work there. All the environmental catastrophes, the carbon footprint of cars powered by oil and lately the fracking business, they’re all deemed to be the devil institutionalized. So on Reddit, the question was asked: Is working in Oil […]
The Earth starts to shake. All the tension that was built up at the fault was released. An earthquake just happened somehow the ground starts moving. If you think about it, it’s fascinating how this energy can affect us several miles away from the actual earthquake. But how exactly does this work? At the fault […]
They’re pretty much everywhere. In the harshest environments, even on highways some extremophile mosses, lichens and algae can survive. Most of them aren’t very welcome on the walls of our cities. Since they’re easier to remove than graffiti many house owners remove them first. But did you know these, so called, cryptogamic covers are huge […]
Heligoland is an island off the coast of Nothern Germany. This island has already had a turbulent history before man set foot on this island of red sandstone. But its position in the North Sea, between Germany and the UK, also has made this island subject to territorial quarrels and military interest. This interest has […]
