The EMR Group forms part of the Department of Geosciences & Geography in the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering at RWTH Aachen University. The School of Geosciences with its stream in EMR, Eon ERC / Applied Geophysics , Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology and Geomaterials (GeoMat) is the largest university-based Geoscience Group committed to Resources Research in Germany. The EMR Group is further integrated with the Network of Environmental Geochemistry Laboratories Aachen.
The EMR Group offers a wide range of applied research covering basin modeling, carbonate sedimentology, diagenesis, discontinuities (faults, fractures, veins), geomechanics, geochemistry, interface mineralogy, mineral deposits, petrology, petrophysics, salt, seismic interpretation, sequence stratigraphy as well as unconventionals & new technologies.

Mudlogging student interns needed
A deep well planned for April & May 2014 needs mudloggers, that is you, our MSc students with microscopy skills. The deep well is drilled into a salt dome in Northern Germany. Such drilling is required for either energy exploration or energy storage, both key aspects driving the country's economy. On-site shifts allow you to validate the lithologies drilled and test the subsurface model. If you are interested in some hands-on experience, please contact us at RPR or get in touch with our SPE student chapter.
SPE - Society of Petroleum Engineers Student Chapter kicked-off
Today our EMR-Students kicked off their RWTH SPE-student chapter, supported by SPE's German Section and our faculty, and submitted their proposal to SPE's headquarter. SPE with it's app 100,000 members provides a worldwide network with peers and industry professionals and supports student chapters at Universities with Upstream-related Master courses. Our MSc Applied Geosciences - Energy & Mineral Resources Stream and our joint MSc Applied Geophysics with TU Delft and ETH Zurich fullfill the requirements and we are looking forward for the RWTH chapter to be accrediated by SPE's headquarter. Christoph Hilgers initated the establishment of a student chapter at RWTH when he took EMR-MSc students to the SPE-STC 2013 meeting.

Hamed Fazlikhani successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis. Congratulations.
Next Wednesday (27.03.13) Susanne Buiter will give a talk on "Analysing Wilson Cycle plate margins" Hereby we would like to invite you to the talk held at 14:00 in room 408 (Lochnerstrasse 4-20, 'Haus A'). Susanne Buiter has been elected as the president of the EGU Division on Tectonics and Structural Geology.
Prof. Dr. Ralf Littke was elected as member of the working group "resources" of the programme "Energy Systems of the Future". This programme is a joint initiative of the German Academies of Science.
Yves Gensterblum was awarded this grant for his research on the interaction of gases with clay minerals using neutron diffraction. He is planning to visit the Los Alamos research facilities, USA, for neutron beam experiments early 2013.
