With this proposal we attempt to optimize the resolution potentials of geoelectric potential field and electromagnetic diffusion methods with their inherent multi-scales, which cover a wide range from boreholes to regional or lithosphere dimensions. To reach these goals, we have developed an inter-disciplinary concept, integrating working groups from applied and numerical geophysics, information technology and numerical mathematics. The limitation to a single physical parameter means that contributing scientists working on neighbouring research fields can interact easily to ensure a meaningful scientific exchange between all participants. The project Partners come from university and non-university research institutions. Cooperation with commercial partners is intended, but envisaged for a later phase of the project.
