We, the students' initiative of the students representative of all german geophysics students welcome you on our website.
Welcome to www.geophysikstudenten.de
The German Geophysical Society (DGG) was found in Leipzig in 1922 with the aim to collect and distribute geophysical knowledge in research and science. Nowadays it provides a stage for the distribution of geophysical knowledge, represents the Geophysics in scientific affairs on national and international stages and supports the exchange of experience between geophysicists.
In this context, the students' initiative represents the students representation of all German geophysics students. Furthermore it should serve as contact name for students and prospective students.
For students this website is a chance to exchange experiences and to inform about upcoming events and vacancies. Moreover it provides useful hints how students can increase publicity of their study of geophysics in their former school.
Prospective students can gain an insight into geophysics and learn about places of study and possible career opportunities.
For foreign students we are currently working on a translation of our webpage. So please excuse still missing translations.
The GAP 2014 in Kiel is over but it will remain in our memories. We wrote a short report about this year's meeting. You can find it here but it is only available in German.
The next GAP in 2015 will take place in Freiberg at the University of Mining and Technology. The website can be found here.
What is the GAP?
In 1985, geophysics students from Karlsruhe initiated a meeting for their fellow students from throughout Germany. The aim was to connect students of geophysics among each other and to give them an insight into the area of work of the organizing institute. Furthermore lectures, workshops and field trips provided knowledge especially about topics like “career entry”, “industry internships” and range of taks in the field of geophysics that exceeded normal university lectures. The idea about representing the own institute was very well received by the participants which is why the GAP (Geophysical Activity Program) was repeated every year in a different city since then.
