EARTHSYS 110: Introduction to the Foundations of Contemporary Geophysics (GEOPHYS 110, GEOPHYS 215)

Introduction to the foundations of contemporary geophysics. Lectures link important topics in contemporary Geophysics ("What we study") to methods used to make progress on these topics ("How we study"). Topics range from plate tectonics to natural hazards; ice sheets to sustainability. For each topic, we focus is on how the interpretation of geophysical measurements (e.g., gravity, seismology, heat flow, electromagnetism and remote sensing) provides fundamental insight into the behavior of the Earth. The course will includes a required all-day Saturday field exercise Feb 02/10 (rain-date: 02/17). Prerequisite: CME 100 or MATH 51, or co-registration in either.
