When: August 19 - December 03, 2020. Lecture: Wed. Fri. 9:30-10:45a
Where: ES&T L1118 (see Canvas. We will be likely be entirely remote)
This course is an introduction to methods used to visualize and understand the history, shape, mechanical structure,
and dynamics of the solid-earth system. We will discuss how geophysical tools, including seismology,
gravity, magnetism, heat flow, geochronology, and geodesy, are used to understand the age, whole-earth
and near-surface structure, and to quantify the kinematics and dynamics of plate tectonics.
