118. APPLIED GEOPHYSICS
(Code : S5702)
This is a multi-disciplinary programme with inputs from Geology, Physics, Mathematics, Electronics and Computer Sciences. Basic and advanced papers on Exploration Geophysics with special emphasis on hydrocarbon exploration including exploration for gas hydrates and coal bed methane are taught. A significant part of the programme is devoted to Solid Earth Geophysics and Earthquake Seismology. The programme gives equal emphasis on each unit of exploration activity, viz, acquisition, processing and interpretation. Training in the filed constitutes an integral programme arranged by the Department with leading Oil and Mineral Industries besides its rigorous in-campus and field training activity organized by the Department. The Department is actively engaged in R&D activities with major areas of research such as Exploration for Gas Hydrates and Coal Bed Methane, Magneto Telluric Studies, Geophysical Signal Processing, Earthquake Seismology, Petrophysics, Remote Sensing and Gravity Magnetic Studies.
Presently students with Applied Geophysics degree have excellent job opportunity with leading oil companies in India and abroad.
