InSARTrac Measurements 2022

The hybrid 3D monitoring method InSARTrac is currently used to measure glacial retreat and surface displacements at the Mölltal Glacier. First measurements indicate a melting of approximately 1.5 cm per day (August 2022).

Mission and Vision

Our Mission

To educate undergraduate and graduate students for academia and industry leadership careers in the environmental mineral-water and engineering geosciences, and to advance the current state-of-knowledge through scholarly dissemination of original research that is relevant to the needs of society.

Our Vision

The Institute of Applied Geosciences shall be a primary European institution for the pursuit and promulgation of knowledge in the fields of environmental mineral-water and engineering geosciences. Our graduates shall assume future leadership roles in professional disciplines involving the earth, its environment, and its resources.
