|School||School of Geosciences
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This course introduces students to the most up to date theory which is being applied in the seismic industry. The course is designed for students who have a background in geophysics equivalent to Introduction to Geophysics and Seismic Methods courses. Students will develop an understanding of the current mathematical theories being used to process and image data in the seismic industry.
