GEOPHYS 100: Directed Reading

(Staff)
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-2

GEOPHYS 110: Introduction to the Foundations of Contemporary Geophysics (EARTHSYS 110)

Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR, GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-SMA

GEOPHYS 115: Taking the Pulse of the Planet

Grappling with the big questions of sustainability and climate change, requires that we start with a foundational understanding of how Earth works. Tapping into rapid advancements in sensor technology and data science over the past decade, we can now image and monitor many components of the Earth system. This will be a lecture class for undergraduates and graduate students designed to introduce them to the incredible array of sensors and data sets now available to image and study components of the Earth system. With the launch of the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability, we wish to celebrate, through this course, the powerful role that advancements in technology and advancements in data science are playing in addressing the global challenges in sustainability and climate change.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Repeatable 3 times (up to 15 units total)

GEOPHYS 126: Planetary Science Reading (GEOLSCI 127, GEOLSCI 227, GEOPHYS 226)

The course will meet once a week to discuss a recent journal article related to the broad field of planetary science, including but not limited to cosmochemistry, planet formation, planetary geology, planetary atmospheres, Earth history, astrobiology, and exoplanets. Students will be expected to lead the group discussion at least once per quarter. No formal presentations will be required. There are no prerequisites for this course, but students should have some facility with reading scientific literature.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable 3 times (up to 3 units total)
Instructors: Schaefer, L. (PI)

GEOPHYS 141: Remote Sensing of the Oceans (EARTHSYS 141, EARTHSYS 241, ESS 141, ESS 241)

How to observe and interpret physical and biological changes in the oceans using satellite technologies. Topics: principles of satellite remote sensing, classes of satellite remote sensors, converting radiometric data into biological and physical quantities, sensor calibration and validation, interpreting large-scale oceanographic features.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR, GER: DB-NatSci

GEOPHYS 181: Fluids and Flow in the Earth: Computational Methods (GEOPHYS 203)

Interdisciplinary problems involving the state and movement of fluids in crustal systems, and computational methods to model these processes. Examples of processes include: nonlinear, time-dependent flow in porous rocks; coupling in porous rocks between fluid flow, stress, deformation, and heat and chemical transport; percolation of partial melt; diagenetic processes; pressure solution and the formation of stylolites; and transient pore pressure in fault zones. MATLAB, Lattice-Boltzmann, and COMSOL Multiphysics. Term project. No experience with COMSOL Multiphysics required. Offered every other year, winter quarter.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

GEOPHYS 196: Undergraduate Research in Geophysics

Field-, lab-, or computer-based. Faculty supervision. Written reports.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-10 | Repeatable for credit

GEOPHYS 197: Senior Thesis in Geophysics

For seniors writing a thesis based on Geophysics research in 196 or as a summer research fellow. Seniors defend the results of their research at a public oral presentation.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 3-5

GEOPHYS 198: Honors Program

Experimental, observational, or theoretical honors project and thesis in geophysics under supervision of a faculty member. Students who elect to do an honors thesis should begin planning it no later than Winter Quarter of the junior year. Prerequisites: department approval. Seniors defend the results of their research at a public oral presentation.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable 4 times (up to 15 units total)
