Outline and Purpose of the Course About various subsurface exploration methods, technologies for investigating subsurface natural resources from the surface of the earth, their exploration principles, as well as data acquisition methods will be introduced.
Along with lectures on basic physicochemical principles of data processing technology and interpretation methods, energy
-The application to the resource field, environment field, disaster prevention field, ground engineering field, and civil engineering field will also be introduced.
Course Goals The goal is to understand geophysical exploration methods from the perspectives of electromagnetics, seismology, geochemistry, and rock physics.
Schedule and Contents Geoelectromagnetism and geophysical exploration, 5 times, outlines the basic theory of exploration technology by geoelectromagnetic methods. Geophysical exploration
Learn the physical basis and measured physical quantities of geoelectromagnetic methods used in the field of
By doing so, the goal is to understand its physical significance.
Seismology and geophysical exploration, 6 times, outline the basic theory of exploration technology by seismological methods. Refraction from the basics of seismology
By learning about measured physical quantities from the physical basis of law and reflection method exploration,
The goal is to understand the scientific significance.
Geochemical exploration and remote sensing, 3 times, chemical properties of rock minerals forming the crust, mantle, and core,
And a geochemical overview of the basics of geochemical measurements used in the exploration of metal deposits and energy resources.
After that, the interaction between electromagnetic waves and substances used in remote sensing technology, optical sensors, and synthetic apertures.
Basics such as data, remote sensing image processing method and topographic analysis, resource exploration, environmental monitoring, etc.
The application to the above will be described.
Confirmation of achievement, 1 time, understanding of lecture contents.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Basically, a paper-based exam will be conducted, but each professor in charge may explain the method of grade evaluation.
Course Requirements Preferrable students are those who have taken university-level physics, chemistry, and earth science.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) N.P.
