ErSE 225 Physical Field Methods in Geophysics I

Measurement and theory of gravity and magnetic fields of the earth; small to large- scale gravity and magnetic anomalies in exploration and global geophysics; reduction of gravity and magnetic data and forward modelling; applications to exploration, tectonics, and environmental problems. Thermal properties, temperatures, and heat transfer within the context of global geological and geophysical processes, such as plate tectonics and sedimentary basin evolution.
