GEL 358 - General Geophysics

 

The study of earthquake seismology and the basic geophysical methods such as gravity, magnetics, seismic refraction, seismic reflection, electrical resistivity, and electro-logging. The laboratory exercises and field work using portable geophysical equipment will familiarize the students with the various methods used to collect and interpret geophysical data. (This course is also offered under the MAR 358 designation.)

Prerequisites: GEL 100 or MAR/GEL 110 and PHY 040 or PHY 100.
