Course overlap

GEO-8123 Marine Geophysics 5 stp

Course contents

This course gives a thorough treatment of the interpretation of geological and geophysical data through integrated approaches. It teaches students to integrate diverse geophysical data (2D and 3D seismic, multibeam bathymetry, hydroacoustic, controlled soured electromagnetics (CSEM), borehole logs) in an exploration context weighing the strengths and limitations of the various methods in order to develop geological models. Particular attention is paid to extracting the maximum amount of geological information from the data, recognizing noise-related artifacts in interpretation products and how to deal with the ambiguity when interpreting geophysical datasets. The course provides an in-depth overview of quantitative and qualitative interpretation techniques for evaluating structural and sedimentological (stratigraphical) processes with applications within resource exploration, geohazards, seismology, seabed ecology and global climate research.
