We define the geosphere to be that portion of system Earth that includes Earth's interior, rocks, minerals and soils, landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface. Responsible use includes the activities related to exploration, exploitation and mitigation of natural and man-induced geo-hazards.
It is our strong conviction that our research should contribute to: Responsible Use of the Geosphere considering the Impact on System Earth and Society.

Looking for possible tombstone by using GPR
In March 2020, Dominique Ngan-Tillard and Deyan Draganov were approached by the foundation Jewish Westland, who manages the cemetery in Naaldwijk, and asked whether it would be possible to use non-invasive geophysical methods to look for possible tombstones lying under the ground surface of the cemetery.
