This course provides the student an opportunity to design and execute the workflow of the data treatment (including in exceptional cases the possible of acquisition), processing, analysis and modelling, and interpretation of a geophysical dataset in the context of Earth structure or processes and/or exploration goals relevant to resource industries. The project is an extended, independent, self-directed, piece of practical work integrating and reinforcing the material taught on the course, and giving a detailed insight into the demands of, and ways of working in academia or industry.

The Project is the culmination of the previous taught courses of the Geophysics MSc. It requires integration of different elements and assumes a general knowledge of theoretical aspects of geophysical methods, with specific application to the method or integrated methods employed in the course of the analysis. The Project subject can be from a wide spectrum of geophysical approaches. Some students may work on their projects in the offices of a company that has offered the topic is probably providing data and others may work on data acquired for academic research purposes, either at the University of Aberdeen or other Academic Institutions.
