Science Field – Geophysics
What is the scope of geophysics?
Geophysics uses physics to study the physical aspects of the earth (Geo) using gravity, magnetic, electrical and seismic methods, among others. Geophysics is essential for exploring for energy, water, and mineral resources, monitoring environmental impact and change, as well as assessing natural and man-made hazards.
What is the most exciting aspect of your work?
What really fascinates me is the way we can image the earth using various methods – which is a bit like earth x-ray imaging. This reveals to us what we imagine is underneath the earth’s surface.
