Survey of active geophysical measurements and passive geophysical observations and their relation to Earth’s structure and composition. Investigation of the relationship between Earth’s elastic, potentiometric, and thermodynamic properties and traditional geophysical methods for measurement (e.g., gravity, magnetics, seismic, and heat flow). Material will help students improve their quantitative problem- solving abilities, but will also emphasize the visual learning skills commonly developed in the broader geology curricula.

Prereq: MA 113, PHY 211 or 213, or consent of instructor. (MA 114 suggested).
