The key objective of the "Seismic Interpretation" Group is work on basin geology at all scales, mainly through MSc.-, PhD.-, Post-Doc.- and staff research projects. Our research philosophy is to use a maximum of geological and geophysical constraints to unravel and quantify tectonic and sedimentary processes, and test the validity of geological interpretations.

Our fields of expertise include:

  • interpretation of multidimensional seismic-reflection data
  • combined seismic-borehole studies
  • structural model building
  • dynamic tectonic modelling
  • seismic and sequence stratigraphy

An important issue for the Seismic Interpretation Group is the communication of our work and research results. Training courses on “Seismic Interpretation” and “Seismic and Sequence Stratigraphy” are taught on a regular basis. Students interested in MSc.- or PhD.-research on a seismic-related topic are welcome to contact us.

The Seismic Interpretation Group at RWTH Aachen University collaborates with national and international academia, research groups, government institutions and industry.
