The GeoThermal/GeoEnergy section of the chair of Geology deals with all the topics within the fields of geoenergy, such as geothermics, hydrocarbons, underground storage, etc. Our team focusses on three main areas deep geothermal energy, shallow geothermal energy and reservoir analysis.
We also coordinate the new Joint Degree Master Course GeoThermal/ GeoEnergy which combines the expertise of 8 faculties at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich (LMU). Research and teaching are an essential part of the Geothermal-Alliance Bavaria.
The chair of Geology also includes the Isotope Geochemistry/Paleoclimatology branch, Basin Analysis and Sedimentary Provenance.
