2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Knowledge in the field of Earth Sciences, general Physics and Geophysics (1st cycle).
Theoretical classes with detailed exposition of the concepts and principles pertaining to the geophysical methods and of their applications. Theoretical-practical classes in which students are introduced to the resolution of exercises concerning practical applications (with guidance), with focus on data processing. Field work in which students have contact with data acquisition. Personal work involving the resolution of exercises/data processing and analysis on an autonomous base.
To provide the fundamental concepts and principles on the specific geophysical methods approached, as well as insight on their applications, their potentialities and limitations. To gain knowledge on essential processing and interpretation of data, as well as on data acquisition in the field.
Acquiring capabilities in synthesis and analysis, representation and transmission of information, problems solving, critic reflection, autonomous comprehension of new situations, practical application of theoretical knowledge.
Applied Geophysics – object and methods. Geophysical methods allowing to obtain a bidimensional and/or tridimensional image of the terrain. Seismic methods and electrical methods. Seismic methods. Refraction seismics; essential elements. Reflection seismics. Propagation and reflection of seismic waves. Reflection hyperbole. Acquisition. The seismogram. Elements of signal theory. Field surveys with seismic methods. Seismic signal processing; obtaining final seismic sections. Interpretation. Applications of seismic methods. Electrical methods – 2D sections and surveys.
