Field of Competence:
Interpreting the gravity field in a 3-D version to study the Earth's crust and mantle structure of different regions:
continental crust — The Western East — European Platform (including the TTZ) and similar regions of other continents;
subcontinental and suboceanic crust — inner seas (Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea a. o.).
There are 10 publication in journals (see list given separately)
