Geophysics is a massive branch of science that uses physics to study how the forces that form and shape the Earth work. Geophysics includes the studies of oceanography, geomagnetism, seismology, volcanology, geothermometry, meteorology, gravity, and the atmospheric sciences. Geophysics also includes the study of ground...
Geophysics: An introduction
By: Effie Moore Salem
In order to understand geophysics, you must first know that physics is the science of matter and its interactions. Therefore, since the prefix geo pertains to the earth, then geophysics is a branch of geology; geology the study of the whole earth. And what a...
