Geophysics is the interdisciplinary study of the earth, oceans, atmosphere and beyond using the quantitative methods of physics, mathematics and computer science. In addition to our MSc and PhD research degrees in Geophysics, UWA now offers a BSc Hons degree in Geophysics commencing 2015.

Geophysics is the interdisciplinary study of the earth, oceans, atmosphere and beyond using the quantitative methods of physics, mathematics and computer science. In addition to our MSc and PhD research degrees in Geophysics, UWA now offers a BSc  Hons  degree  in  Geophysics  commencing  2015.    

The  primary  objective  of  the UWA Geophysics Honours degree is to provide students with an understanding of the frontiers of modern geophysics with an emphasis on imaging the earth’s interior for applications  ranging  from  resource  scales  (hydrocarbons,  groundwater,  geothermal, CO2  sequestration,  etc)  to  global  tectonic  scales  including  earthquake  seismology. Students will learn and apply key concepts in seismology, wave propagation, 3D and time-lapse (4D) imaging of the subsurface, and computational geophysics data modelling and inversion, as well as gain exposure to non-seismic methods such as gravity, electromagnetics (EM), and ground penetrating radar (GPR).
