On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
* Understand the physical principles governing the propagation of seismic waves. * Know the principles of seismic data acquisition and have a broad understanding of the instruments used in the field. * Interpret a seismic section and identify different seismic phases. * Describe the basic processing steps of reflection seismic data. * Derive a model of the subsurface based on refraction seismic data. * Be able to make gravity measurements and calculate Free-air and Bouguer anomalies. * Describe the common types of magnetisation and understand how a Proton and a Cesium Vapour magnetometer works. * Compute model responses and interpret gravity and magnetic data. * Describe the different electrical and electromagnetic methods and how they relate to electrical conductivity and dielectric permittivity. * Understand the physical limitations of the geophysical methods. * Compare different geophysical methods, describe their weaknesses, strengths, and applicability to different problems and geological environments.
* The seismic reflection method. * The seismic refraction method. * Gravity measurements. * Magnetisation and magnetic measurements. * Electrical methods. * Electromagnetic methods including ground penetrating radar. * Radiometric methods. * Geophysical field techniques. * Geophysical modelling and interpretation. * Field course. .
The course consists of lectures, seminars, exercises and a compulsory short field course.
Written examination. The written examination corresponds to 7 ECTS and the compulsory part 3 ECTS.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
