GEOL 213 - Geophysics
This course provides an introduction to the principles of geophysics and context for how geophysical field techniques can be used to address geological and environmental problems. Students will develop competencies using basic geophysical equations to better understand geologic systems at a variety of scales, and predict the geophysical response to different rock types and structures. An emphasis will be placed on survey design and hands-on operation of geophysical equipment (electromagnetic, gravity, electrical, magnetic, ground penetrating radar (GPR) methods), as well as the subsequent processing and analysis of data.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of GEOL 105 (Physical Geology), PHYS 102 (Elementary Physics II) and MATH 101 (Single Variable Calculus II). Equivalent preparation may be considered.
