KEA342 involves a series of lectures, practical work and geophysical field surveys, which include the integration of data, interpretation of results and the preparation of reports. The unit covers in detail seismic, gravity, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic methods in geophysics and introduces topics of manual and automated data integration and analysis. Recommended for students planning a career in geophysics, mineral exploration or environmental geoscience.
This unit is designed to bring students' knowledge of these topics up to graduate level, adequate for school teaching and for continuation into 4thyear (honours), which is now recognised as the minimum professional level of training. This course is required for undertaking Honours in Geophysics and desirable for Honours in Environmental Geology, General Geology, Economic Geology and Marine Geoscience.
