Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Ulrich Schreiber (Geodetic Observatory Wettzell) on measuring the earth's rotational movement from the Bavarian countryside


Prof. Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday! Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen from time to time to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On January 17, 2018, Prof. Ulrich Schreiber (Geodetic Observatory Wettzell) will talk about the new ring laser ROMY (Rotational Motions in Seismology) located in Fürstenfeldbruck, making it possible for scientists to measure the rotational movements of the earth with far greater precision and detail than in the past (TUM press release).

Further information:
ROMY in the Journal "Science"

We look forward to seeing you there!
