Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the theoretical principles and field of application of Geophysics, as well as the profile and tasks of a geophysicist. The students will learn how Geophysics combines mathematics, physics and geology to characterize Earth´s processes, structure and composition. By the end of the lecture, the students will acquire the knowledge to apply geophysical methods based on natural sources, - seismology, magnetometry, gravimetry, spontaneous potential and magnetotelluric - to understand natural phenomena, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, groundwater flow and mass movements.

Subject of course

  • Basic concepts for Geophysics
  • Seismology and the structure of the Earth
  • Gravitational field and the shape of the Earth
  • Geomagnetic field
  • Electric and Electromagnetic fields
