An advanced work-ready unit incorporating aspects of Geophysics and Earth Sciences in a GIS environment. The unit will include an intensive school consisting of lab-based work interpreting geophysical data with geological, remote sensed and cadastral data using a GIS platform. A component of field work will involve acquisition of digital data using mobile GIS with lab-based interpretation. Geophysical methods covered include magnetics, gravity, seismicity, radiometrics and electric methods. Applications to geological mapping, mineral exploration and broader land use and planning issues will be used. Practical classes will also cover geophysical features of hand specimens.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
