Seismic Refraction part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This lab allows the students to review the relevant formulas for the analysis of seismic refraction data and provides three different data sets to analyze three different geologic settings (three-layer model, dipping inferface, fault).
Seismology and Global Earth Structure part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This laboratory exercise reviews the basic concepts of how seismic body waves travel through the Earth and how seismologists use these waves to determine global Earth structure. Also, the students analyze waveforms recorded from an earthquake to determine the earthquake's location, magnitude, and focal mechanism.
Geophysics part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
This is an introductory course designed to provide an overview of both global geophysics and applied geophysics.
