Geophysicist » Overview


Geophysicists study the structure and behaviour of the Earth. They may also study the other properties for other planets and moons, along with objects found in space. The field of geophysics is quite broad and, therefore, a geophysicist may engage in a rage of activities or choose to specialize in a particular area. For example, geophysics involves the study of the surface of the Earth, Earth’s atmosphere, the interior of the earth and the Earth’s oceans. Topics they are interested in include earthquakes, volcanoes, weather patters, tectonic places or geophysical exploration (surveying for natural resources).
