Geological, geochemical and geophysical studies are applied to model natural processes that can become geological hazards. These studies include research topics related to volcanism, seismology, landslides or geochemical transfer in subsurface and surface land.
From a multidisciplinary point of view, the research is focused on the physics of hazardous geological processes, development of analytical tools for geochemistry, borehole geophysics and remote sensing.
Among the most important techniques we highlight:
- Simulation of geological processes using a combination of numerical & experimental methods
- Application of X-ray radiation for the study of materials and residual waters
- Borehole geophysics and subsurface imaging
- Development of new algorithms for remote sensing and geographic information systems.
- Group leader: Joan Martí Molist
