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 .  Elsewhere, Rice University has a Center for Computational Geophysics,  while Princeton University , the University of Texas, and Albert-Ludwigs-Universität have similar programs. Seoul National University has offered postdoctoral positions in the field, 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.
