  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 2.0
  • Type: UE Exercise

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply the physical concepts reviewed in class to solve common engineering questions. The students will be able to use state-of-the-art algorithms to localize earthquake´s epicenter and quantify its magnitude. During the revision of potential methods, the students are encouraged to develop scripts in Matlab and Python so that they can gain experience in the implementation of physical equations in a programming framework.

Subject of course

  • Seismology
  • Gravitational field
  • Geomagnetic field
  • Spontaneous potential
  • Propagation and attenuation of electromagnetic waves

Teaching methods

Working in small groups. Short presentation of results for active discussion of problems and experiences.

Application of Python algorithms for localization of earthquake’s epicenter and the analysis of seismology signals

Development of scripts in Python/Matlab for the modeling of signatures of different geometries in potential methods: gravimetry, magnetometry and spontaneous potentia
