Advanced Computational Geophysics
The course will cover several aspects of advanced computational geophysics. The focus will be on mathematical and numerical aspects of wave propagation, potential fields, and diffusion processes. Applications considered in this course will be from seismology, geodesy, numerical geology, and other fields of computational geophysics.
MSc Programme in Climate Change
MSc Programme in Physics
This course aims to provide the student with skills to
- Compute numerical solutions to simplified wave propagation problems in seismology
- Compute numerical solutions to simplified potential field problems in geodesy and geomagnetism
- Compute numerical solutions to simplified diffusion problems in, e.g., hydrology and sedimentology
- Evaluate the stability and accuracy of numerical schemes
The course will give the students
- a basic understanding of of the mathematics and numerical techniques of computational geophysics.
The students will be able to
- plan, develop and carry out basic data simulations in computational geophysics.
Lectures and computer exercises
Will be announced in Absalon
Mathematical analysis, vector calculus, partial differential
equations, linear algebra.
Academic qualifications equivalent to a BSc degree in physics is recommended.
