Physics of the Earth

This course covers the physics of the Earth and how geophysical methods (magnetic, gravitational and seismological) can be used to infer the structure of the Earth's core, mantle and crust. It presents the contributions of geophysics to the development of plate tectonic models for ancient and modern Earth. PREREQ: GEOL 1006/1007; PHYS 1006/1007; MATH 1036 or 1912. (lec 3, tut 3) cr 3.
