With the advent of larger and more complex datasets, the solution of inverse problems is becoming increasingly relevant in modern geophysics. In this course, as well as learning the fundamentals of inverse theory and statistics, students will be exposed to cutting edge methods used in a wide variety of applied geophysics problems, from receiver function analysis to full waveform inversion. A solid knowledge of statistics is required to properly understand modern geophysical inversion theory, which is why the two components of the course work well together.

There are in-course exercises for formative feedback. The summative element consists of two exercises, totalling 60% of the assessment, and an examination (40%). The exercises are: 1. a workbook recording practical work throughout the whole course (40%), and 2. and assigned exercise (20%) The examination will be by multiple choice and will be computer-marked.
There are no assessments for this course.
