Information about Prof. Dr. Jörg Ebbing


Jörg Ebbing studied Geophysics until the Diploma degree at Kiel University. In 2002 he earned his doctorate in Geophysics at FU Berlin. From 2003 to 2014, he was senior scientist at the Geological Survey of Norway in Trondheim and from 2006 to 2016 Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim. Since 2014 he is Professor of Satellite- and Aerogeophysics in the Institute for Geosciences at Kiel University.

Research questions

My main research interest is the structure of the lithosphere from the combined interpretation of satellite and terrestrial data. In all my research projects interdisciplinary approaches are applied with special emphasis on the use of potential field data in forward and inverse modelling and their combination to deep seismic and MT results and geological studies. Currently, a focus is on both the development of methods and the sensitivity analysis of satellite data for lithospheric studies.

Most research relates to novel techniques in the exploitation of satellite and aerogeophysical data. More specific:

  • How is the feedback between the dynamics of the Solid Earth, Cryosphere and Ocean?
  • How can satellite methods be used to define the structure of the Earth?
