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.
As part of the "Explain it to me, RWTH!" video series, researchers and students from the Institute of Geology present different types of rock and provide insight into their specific properties and their formation history. The videos are produced in collaboration with RWTH Aachen's Media for Teaching, MfL, service point and published weekly: LINK
