GP 229 - Introduction to Geophysics


Credits: 4
A study of the active physical processes in the earth. Students will apply ideas and tools of physics to earth science problems by examining topics such as stress and strain, heat transport, fluid advection, gravity, seismology, and magnetism. Students will study earth phenomena including rock deformation, glacier mechanics, earthquakes, and earth's magnetic field, and conduct analysis of geophysical data and apply physical models to earth science problems. Four hours of combined lecture and lab per week.

Four hours of combined lecture and lab per week.
Prerequisites: MA 111  (can be taken concurrently) and one course in either physics or geosciences, or permission of the instructor.
