Geophysics & Tectonics

Taking advantage of the SOEST’s mid-Pacific setting, students and faculty investigate a wide variety of geodynamic, tectonic, and geophysical phenomena that operate over a broad range of scales. Studies in Geophysics & Tectonics are interdisciplinary and include experimental and theoretical developments, field-based observations, and computer simulations. Together, they provide students with a background that combines both geology and geophysics for technical and professional work at industrial, governmental, and academic institutions.
