2010 Course Handbook
GEOS205: Introduction to Geophysics
Lectures in this unit cover, at an introductory level, some of the important geophysical approaches which are used by Earth scientists to explore and understand the Earth's interior. Included are the methods of collecting and interpreting gravity, magnetic, seismic and electrical data and their use in assembling the presently held picture of the crust, mantle and core. Practical classes involve reducing and interpreting geophysical data from both exploration and global problems. An excursion provides an opportunity to carry out a field survey and interpret the results in terms of geological structure and environmental aspects.
