Proceedings of the technical workshop GeORG on 18th of November 2010 in Freiburg im Br.

The technical workshop of the Interreg IV A project “Geopotentials of the deep Upper Rhine Graben (GeORG)” was aimed at presenting first scientific results and at discussing the project with the general public as well as with scientific experts. In the first session “Communication” the objectives, contents, potential uses and the broader context of GeORG were presented. The session “Positioning” focused on the applied techniques for a transnational harmonization, interpretation and modeling of geological data in GeORG and on the scientific exchange with thematically related projects of geological modeling for the use of geopotentials.


The program of the workshop, proceedings and presentations of talks are available for download as PDF files.
