Geophysics 

The application of geophysics is widespread as its theories are used to extract natural resources, mitigate natural hazards and take environmental protection measures. Other applications of geophysics include locating petroleum reservoirs, analyzing reservoirs, locating groundwater, determining the properties of soil, and assessing sites for environmental remediation.

Geophysics is an interdisciplinary subject involving the study of all of earth’s materials and soils along with a blend of astronomy, physics, biology, and other earth sciences.

Geophysics includes the study of gravity (study of the gravitational forces on the earth and the moon), heat flow (sources of heat, primordial heat, radioactivity and convection or conduction), vibrations, electromagnetic waves, magnetism, fluid dynamics, and mineral physics.

Geophysics Training Courses

Professional training courses in geophysics provide professionals with in-depth knowledge of core geophysical subjects and physical laws of geophysics. Geophysics training courses also enhance research and writing skills of professionals for future endeavors. Geophysics training courses include concepts in geodesy, geomagnetism, time series analysis, applied geophysics, seismology, geochemistry, marine geology, geohazards, hydrogeology, seismic techniques, and oceanography.

Geophysics training courses for oil and gas professionals are offered in different formats such as traditional classroom settings, online courses as well onsite project management courses. Online courses give professionals the flexibility to attend classes and exams at any time and the convenience of revisiting course materials at any time.

Oil and Gas Professionals in Geophysics

Professionals graduating from degrees in geophysics often find jobs in the environmental and scientific sectors. Geophysics training courses are ideal for professionals in the gas and oil industry such as drilling scientists and drilling engineers. Some common areas of work for such professionals include oilfield services, petroleum engineering, health sector, environmental safety, maritime engineering, trading, maintenance, and management.

Professionals can occupy jobs such as geophysicists, geologists, process engineers, process control managers, drillers, production operators, construction managers, electrical, mechanical engineers, quality assurance, quality control managers, refinery specialist, and refinery operators.

Geophysics Prospects and Applications

Geophysics has a wide range of applications. Geophysical theories and studies are used in different developmental and environmental projects such as archaeological field studies, landfill imaging, well logging, seismic monitoring, forensic investigations, and predicting hazards such as earthquakes, tremors, tsunamis, and construction siting essentials.

Professional prospects in geophysics are as wide as the qualifications and can be expanded to different fields such as exploratory geophysics, geological hazards investigation, environmental projects based on water, natural resources study, soil studies, R&D, and landfill mapping. Professionals majoring in geophysical sciences can also pursue postgraduate and doctorate degrees and occupy jobs such as lecturers and researchers.
