GEOPHYS 90: Earthquakes and Volcanoes (EARTHSYS 113)

Is the "Big One" overdue in California? What kind of damage would that cause? What can we do to reduce the impact of such hazards in urban environments? Does "fracking" cause earthquakes and are we at risk? Is the United States vulnerable to a giant tsunami? The geologic record contains evidence of volcanic super eruptions throughout Earth's history. What causes these gigantic explosive eruptions, and can they be predicted in the future? This course will address these and related issues. For non-majors and potential Earth scientists. No prerequisites. More information at: https://stanford.box.com/s/tpwwqpl2ryxfty6stq8wo2j78fj06ikg

GEOPHYS 146B: Atmosphere, Ocean, and Climate Dynamics: the Ocean Circulation (EARTHSYS 146B, EARTHSYS 246B, ESS 146B, ESS 246B, GEOPHYS 246B)

Introduction to the physics governing the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean and their control on climate with emphasis on the large-scale ocean circulation. This course will give an overview of the structure and dynamics of the major ocean current systems that contribute to the meridional overturning circulation, the transport of heat, salt, and biogeochemical tracers, and the regulation of climate. Topics include the tropical ocean circulation, the wind-driven gyres and western boundary currents, the thermohaline circulation, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, water mass formation, atmosphere-ocean coupling, and climate variability. Prerequisites: EESS 146A or EESS 246A, or CEE 164 or CEE 262D, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Thomas, L. (PI)

GEOPHYS 183: Reflection Seismology Interpretation (GEOPHYS 223, GS 223)

The structural and stratigraphic interpretation of seismic reflection data, emphasizing hydrocarbon traps in two and three dimensions on industry data, including workstation-based interpretation. Lectures only, 1 unit. Prerequisite: 222, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1-4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

GEOPHYS 185: Rock Physics for Reservoir Characterization (GEOPHYS 260)

How to integrate well log and laboratory data to determine and theoretically generalize rock physics transforms between sediment wave properties (acoustic and elastic impendence), bulk properties (porosity, lithology, texture, permeability), and pore fluid conditions (pore fluid and pore pressure). These transforms are used in seismic interpretation for reservoir properties, and seismic forward modeling in what-if scenarios. Offered every other year, spring quarter.

GEOPHYS 192: Water governance: interdisciplinary perspectives on critical 21st century challenges

Water is subject to competing uses and interpretations. A critical socioeconomic input and ecosystem service, water is simultaneously imbued with aesthetic, cultural, and spiritual significance. This seminar is predicated on a shared interest in exploring interdisciplinary perspectives on freshwater challenges. The course will draw upon contemporary scholarship in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. We will engage in critical analyses of water challenges (e.g. the water-food-energy nexus, water-related implications of climate change, human access to safe drinking water) and responses (e.g. multi-scalar water governance, integrated water resources management). Case studies from around the world will be used. Students from any discipline are welcome.
