Associated to an institute part

The Royal Observatory of Belgium (ROB) is a scientific research institute, which also provides a wide range of services. Researchers study the planet Earth and other, near and distant objects in space. Scientists at the observatory are involved in the following fields: astronomy, astrophysics, geophysics, seismology, space geodesy and solar physics. The ROB also collaborates with a great many international centres.

The marine aspect of the research activities focuses on two topics:
- Seismological reseach on fault systems in the North Sea (Strait of Dover);
- The application of oceanographic research on planets and their satellites.
