Applied Geophysics

A course of the mathematical physics principle and field apply as well as data interpretation of geophysical investigation methods. Topics include gravity and magnetic potential field measurement, electromagnetic investigation, seismic exploration, geothermal prospecting, and radioactivity probing. These methods are used by geologists, hydrologists and reservoir, soils and geotechnical engineers to locate the distribution of physical properties having economic or engineering importance beneath the surface of the earth.
