Geophysics

 

The term geophysics, literally the physics of the Earth and its environment in space is, by nature, a highly interdisciplinary field. Geophysicists seek to understand the interactions among the physical and chemical processes occurring over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales, that result in the rich behaviors of geosystems from the scale of a fault in a rock you can hold in your hand up to tectonic motions on the scale of continents.

As leaders in the field, EAPS geophysicists provide important global insights on issues such as petroleum reservoirs, groundwater flow, climate, and the earthquake cycle.

Looking beyond our planet, our planetary scientists are putting geophysics lessons learnt on Earth to work to understand and remotely sense bodies they encounter in the solar system and beyond.
