EOSC 556B: Studies in Applied Electromagnetics
Tentative time: Tuesday, Thursday 11:00-12:30
Organizational meeting: Thursday, Sept 5, 11:00 am
GIF seminar room (ESB 4th floor)
Electromagnetic surveys have numerous applications in resource exploration, in environmental and geotechnical problems and large scale earth tectonic problems. In this course we review the basics of electromagnetic methods, associated surveys, data acquisition, processing and inversion of the EM data sets. Field data sets are used to motivate the choice of material covered and to ensure that the processing and inversion techniques are appropriate for the particular application problem. The course is a combination of lectures, student presentations, and individual or group projects.
Grading: Course grade is based upon projects and participation.
Background needed: Undergraduate course in electromagnetics at 3rd or 4th year. A course in applied computational electromagnetics is desirable but not mandatory.
