Geophysical Activity Program

History of 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 insight into the area of work of the organizing institute. Furthermore, talks, workshops and field trips provide knowledge about topics like “career entry”, “industry internships”.

Meanwhile, the GAP is a consistent institution with international character among the students. In past years we have regularly welcomed participants from Poland, Finland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, France, Denmark, Sweden and other european countries. The GAP also took place in other european countries like Austria, Poland and Switzerland.
