Geophysics and Computational Analysis

The Geophysics and Computational Analysis group within the CET makes significant and valued contributions to the use of geoscientific data across the industrial and academic spheres. Our vision is to improve the efficiency, accuracy and consistency of the display and analysis of geoscience data across the mining, exploration, and other geoscientific communities.

    3D Crustal Architecture and Mineral Prospectivity of Under-Explored Terrains in Western Australia

    Working closely with the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) and funded by the WA State Government's Exploration Incentives Scheme, a team of reseachers at CET has recently completed a major study of the prospectivity of key greenfields terrains in Western Australia (...

    The ongoing search for Hadean crust on Earth

    The familiar concentric layer cake structure of the Earth depicted in textbooks formed within a few hundred million years of the accretion of the planet. This is when the metallic core segregated, the oceans condensed, the atmosphere outgassed and the first rocky crust formed....

New Geophysics Degree at UWA

by User Not Found | Feb 13, 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.

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).
