Geophysics – University of Copenhagen

UK IGN > Research > Geology > Geophysics


The geophysics group focuses on the application and development of physical methods to studies of the solid Earth, including seismic methods, geodynamic modelling, potential field methods, geoelectric methods, georadar methods, wireline logs, and geothermal modelling.

The evolution of Earth’s surface and interior represents the fundamental framework of the Geosciences
