Brian O’Reilly, Ireland (coordinator)


The four-year research project will integrate multi-disciplinary, multi-scale geophysical, geological and geochemical data by means of joint analysis, interpretation, modelling and inversion. The DIG team assembled for the project brings comprehensive knowledge of geophysical and geological methods. These include active and passive seismics, active and passive (i.e. magnetotellurics) electromagnetic methods, and integrated geophysical-petrological modelling together with Irish crustal geology and rock geochemistry.
