1 Zusammenarbeit zwischen Universitäten und HGF Einrichtungen GFZ Gemeinsame Forschung und GFZ Infrastruktur DFG Senatskommission für Zukunftsaufgaben der Geowissenschaften Michael Weber Hannover 22. Oktober 2013

2 Helmholtz Association Mission Statement We research systems of great complexity with our large-scale facilities and scientific infrastructure, co-operating closely with national and international partners Cooperation with German Universities Modular Earth Science Infrastructure MESI Funding via DFG Used by and/or delivering services to geo-community + the public BMBF / Helmholtz EU etc. 1/6 th of the GFZ basic budget (~50 persons incl. technicians)

3 Cooperation with German Universities Topics: Experimental and natural rocks Chemical mass transfer in polycrystalline material Mineral reactions under non-isostatic stress Exsolution and phase separation in mineral systems Fluid assisted mineral replacement Feedback between deformation and mineral 3-D imaging (Dual beam EM) of fluid-filled micro-pores created as transient porosity at the Opx-Qtz interface of a rim growing between Ol and Qtz in the presence of a few 10 ppm water. (Milke et al. Geology. 2012)

4 Cooperation with German Universities HELGES - Helmholtz Laboratory for the Geochemistry of the Earth Surface Quantify fluxes at surface using geo-chemical finger-prints Development and application of new methods for indicators of geo-morphological processes HELGES cologneam S- cosmogeni cisotopes How do process work, that shape the Earth surface on different scales? How fast are soil(s) and mountains created and eroded? How fast is sediment transported? Massenspektrometer mit Femtosekunden- Laserablation für Isotopen-Mikroanalytik Reinraumlabor

5 Cooperation with German Universities DFG Bündel Observing the 2010 Maule rupture zone with seismology and geodesy Topics Seismicity & Structure Tectonics & Aftershocks from OBS Data High-resolution Imaging Seismic & Aseismic Deformation Processes The Seismic Cycle on Decadal to Millenial Scale 30 OBS GEOMAR 33 BB-land - GFZ cgps stations installed by USA, DE, UK, France,Chile

6 Cooperation with German Universities SAMPLE DFG SPP 1375 South Atlantic Margin Processes and Links with onshore Evolution More than 10 deutsche Unis + GFZ, BGR, AWI and GEOMAR Primary research areas are: Mantle dynamics and magmatic processes Lithospheric structure Deformation processes and rifted margin formation, Post-rift topographic evolution and links to climate and tectonics Sedimentary processes and fluid systems. How do continents break? Where is the plume? Is there a plume?

8 MESI Definition + Management Utilization by external users (> 50%) Steering committees of external members (each module)

9 MESI GFZ Wissenschaft & Datenauswertung Satellites Swarm 2013 Magnetic Field Grace-FO Gravity ENMAP 2017 Environmental Mapping

10 MESI GNSS Permanent networks and Processing Systems Global Navigation Satellite Systems

11 MESI Geomagnetic Observatories Secular Variation Vertical down component at surface Operated by (or in cooperation) with GFZ contribution to INTERMAGNET Secular Acceleration network ( ) GEOSYSTEM: THE CHANGING EARTH Modular Earth Science Infrastructure I MESI

12 MESI GEOFON GeoForschungsNetz 2012: 6085 events 2012: 731 GMT solutions Stations and real time data provision Rapid earthquake information

13 MESI 260 BB seismometers 700 SP seismometers 340 data loggers 400 Cubes GIPP/DEPAS Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam Pool for Amphibian Seismology 211 experiments since S.P.A.M. Mk IV 140 Induction coils 40 Fluxgates

14 MESI Data Systems ISDC International Science Data Center (Satellites)

15 MESI MESI Data System GEOFON/GFZ/EIDA Data Portal: World: Largest distributor of real-time data Europe: Largest seismol. archive 40 TB + 6 TB/year Central node in EIDA 1.4 Million requests/year EIDA European Integrated Data Archives GEOFON data holdings GEOFON 5.9 TB GFZ 1.9 TB GIPP TB GEOFON Partner Networks 17.6 TB

16 MESI Impact on the community Theses using GIPP data ISI Publications with GRACE data

17 MESI Key results of evaluation of MESI scientific highlights would not have been achieved without MESI facilities. MESI is considered by the reviewers as nationally & internationally central to geoscience
