Computational geophysics

Computational geophysics entails rapid numerical computations that help analyzes of geophysical data and observations. High-performance computing is involved, due to the size and complexity of the geophysical data to be processed. The main computing requirements are 3D and 4D images of the sub-surface earth , Modeling and Migration of complex media, Tomography and inverse problems .

In Canada , computational geophysics is offert have a university staff in the form of a BSc (Hon.) With Co-op at Carleton University . [1] Elsewhere, Rice University has a Center for Computational Geophysics, [2] while Princeton University , the University of Texas, and Albert-Ludwigs-Universität have similar programs. Seoul National University has offered postdoctoral positions in the field, [3]While experts, laboratories, projects, internships, undergraduate and graduate programs and programs exist at the University of Queensland , Wyoming University , Boston University , Stanford University , Uppsala University , Kansas State University , Kingston University , Australian National University , University of California, San Diego , University of Washington , ETH Zurich , University of Sydney , Appalachian State University , University of Minnesota ,University of Tasmania , Bahria University , Boise State University , University of Michigan , University of Oulu , University of Utah , and others.
