Lecture - 12 Noon to 12:50 PM MWF in Bolin 125
Lab - 1 PM to 1:50 PM M in Bolin 105
This course provides a thorough introduction to solid Earth geophysics and exploration geophysics. Includes the theory and application of various geophysical methods including seismic, gravity, electrical, and magnetic methods to understanding the shallow and deep structure of the Earth and integration of geophysical data with laboratory data including high pressures and high temperature mineralogical studies. The practical application of geophysical techniques to oil and gas exploration, mineral deposit exploration, and environmental assessment are also presented. Laboratory sessions focus on data acquisition planning, processing and particularly on practical interpretation of geophysical data for resource and environmental assessment. Course may include a half or full day field trip to gather a geophysical data set for processing and interpretation.
