Heiner Igel is Professor of Seismology at LMU. His research focuses on the study of seismic waves generated by earthquakes and other processes. He develops calculation methods on the basis of which he simulates earthquakes and associated seismic wave propagation. He is an expert in the field of "rotational seismology". This year, the ring laser ROMY (Rotational Motions in Seismology), which he developed within the framework of his ERC project, delivered first results. With this very sensitive rotation sensor, it is possible to measure the rotational movements of the earth much more precisely and in more detail than it was previously possible.
