Course Description

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.
