Geophysics involves the use of physical techniques to study the Earth's interior. It involves a range of disciplines, including seismic, gravity, magnetic and geo-electrical methods, applied throughout marine and onshore settings.
Exploration Geophysics is a key element of understanding the resource potential of the subsurface – whether these resources are water, minerals, hydrocarbon reserves or geothermal heat, or if a site is to be developed for CO2 or hydrogen storage. It is applied in engineering site investigations and environmental monitoring, helping to decontaminate sites and assess structural integrity ahead of construction. It is also a well-developed tool in archaeological mapping and glacier mapping. The School of Earth and Environment’s Exploration Geophysics MSc degree gives you the skills to embark on a career in any of these industrial or academic sectors.
Established for over 50 years, Exploration Geophysics MSc has strong links with industrial partners, global research institutes and Leeds’ new Geosolutions centre, each combining to support the application of geoscience expertise in the transition to clean-energy. The course provides you with a breadth of practical skills, underpinned by a theoretical understanding, equipping you with the skills for a profession in your chosen field.
