About the course
Methods such as seismic, electromagnetic and gravity measurements comprise powerful tools for studying large volumes of the inaccessible sub-surface of the Earth. However, the direct observables are often of limited usefulness, such as seismic velocity or electric conductivity. By studying the physical and chemical behaviour of rocks, this course provides the methods required for linking the geophysical data to the geology.
