Jetzt gibt es das Conrad Observatorium, eines der bedeutendsten unterirdischen geophysikalischen Forschungseinrichtungen weltweit. Zu uns kommen Kollegen von überall auf der Welt, um hier ihre Projekte mit uns zu machen. Wir erfassen hier Signale von Erdbeben, der Erdanziehung und der Geomagnetik. Ein 240 Meter tiefes Bohrloch wurde gerade fertig gestellt für das weltweit einzige unterirdische 3D-Gradiometer-Magnetometersystem, mit dem die genauesten Online-Messungen der Veränderungen unseres Magnetfeldes – des Schutzschilds unserer Erde – erfasst werden können.
