Have you ever been curious how geoscientists know what’s under their feet? In Environmental Field Geophysics (TESC 419), you will learn to use seismic, magnetic, and gravity surveys to investigate the shallow subsurface environment. The course is a project-based introduction to practical geophysical tools and data analysis, along with some of the physics that makes those tools work. The 7-credit field course, scheduled for this coming Autumn quarter (2015), meets Fridays and has local field trips. It counts as a field course for the geoscience degree option. Physical geology with lab and one quarter of introductory physics are prerequisites. Please contact Peter Selkin (paselkin@uw.edu) soon for an add code.
