Geophysics(Chinese and English)

Program Introduction

Geophysics is a discipline of natural science that studies the physical properties of the Earth’s interior from a physical perspective, according to physical principles, and mainly using physical methods. Geophysics applies the theory and method of physics, combined with geology, atmospheric science to detect all kinds of geophysical fields such as the earth's magnetic field, electric field, gravity field and seismic wave field, temperature field, the interior of the earth radiation, atmosphere and plasma radiation field, high electromagnetic field, etc. by means of modern science and technology
