Welcome to the MEMIN Research Network

The collision of solid bodies is one of the most fundamental geological processes in our solar system. The research unit MEMIN (Multidisciplinary Experimental and Modeling Impact Crater Research Network) financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) is aimed at understanding the dynamics of hypervelocity impact processes and the formation of meteorite craters by means of experimental and numerical techniques.

MEMIN is delocalized; participating institutes are currently the Univeristy of Freiburg, along with the universities of Jena, Munich and Münster, the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed ​​Dynamics in Freiburg, the Museum of Natural History, Berlin, DESY Hamburg, and further partners in Beauvais / France and Stony Brook / USA.
