Postgraduate Course: Seismic Methods (PGGE11177)
|School||School of Geosciences
||College||College of Science and Engineering
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
|Home subject area||Postgraduate Courses (School of GeoSciences)
||Other subject area||None
||Taught in Gaelic?||No
|Course description||This course is designed to link the elementary material in the 'Introduction to Geophysics' course with the advanced treatment in 'Processing and Imaging' in Semester 2. A key advantage is that it will give students practical experience of processing seismic data on the computer.
