The MSc in Geophysics at Aarhus University provides a compelling learning experience, integrating skills in physics and mathematics with proper geoscience. Students get to choose their own specific area of focus while exploring a variety of fields at a range of scales, from past and present climate and shallow quaternary structures and materials, through the development of groundwater aquifers and sedimentary basins, to the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere and the Earth’s mantle. Numerical modelling is generally used.

HIGH-CALIBRE RESEARCH

Teaching on the programme is integrated with research at the highest international level. The Department of Geoscience is renowned for its research in hydrogeophysics (airborne and surface electromagnetic methods) for use in hydrogeology and mineral exploration. Further specialities are reflection seismic acquisition (onboard the research vessel Aurora), processing, and interpretation, as used in the subsurface mapping of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs; seismology and potential fields; and numerical modelling of surface and mantle processes.

The thesis, which is heavily weighted, is a chance for students to tailor their degree to their own personal and career interests while benefiting from close collaboration with fellow students and faculty members.
