CURRENT POSITION

Full Professor (Ordinarius), Chair of Geodetic Geodynamics, TUM

Director of the Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Universität München (DGFI-TUM)

FIELD OF WORK

Prof. Seitz's research is focussed on the analysis and geophysical interpretation of observations of geometrical and gravimetrical space techniques. Time series of parameters derived from these data are influenced by large-scale redistributions of masses and exchanges of angular momentum in the Earth system. A simultaneous analysis of observations from complimentary observation systems allows for conclusions on dynamical processes and interactions within and between different components of the Earth system. Long-term changes of parameter time series provide also an insight into the effects of global change.
