Master of Science in Geophysical Engineering 

Graduate students pursuing an MS in Geoscience with the Geophysical Engineering option currently have three choices: thesis, publishable paper in lieu of thesis, and non-thesis. All graduate students, regardless of choice, are encouraged to begin participation in a variety of research and field exploration projects early in the program.

Recent research projects in the department include:

  • Oil Reservoir Characterization
  • Petrophysics
  • Seismic Processing/Interpretation
  • Electrical Resistivity/IP Studies
  • Remote Sensing Analysis
  • Ground Penetrating Radar Studies
  • Shallow Seismic Investigations
  • Statistical Learning Machine Analysis/Application
  • Antarctic History
  • Gravity and Magnetic Studies.
  • Unexploded Ordnance discrimination and characterization
  • Geothermal Characterization
  • Finite Element/ Finite Difference Modeling
  • Carbon Sequestration
  • Groundwater investigations
  • Engineering geophysical applications are also of interest and a recent project involved the combined use of seismic and electrical techniques in a groundwater development investigation.
