Major (Course): Geophysics/Seismology
The science of seismology began by studying naturally occurring earthquakes. Seismologists were originally motivated by a desire to understand the destructive nature of large earthquakes. However, they soon learned that the seismic waves generated by an earthquake contained valuable information about the large-scale structure of the Earths interior. Today, much of our understanding of the earths mantle, crust, and core is based on analyzing the seismic waves generated by earthquakes. So, seismology became an important branch of geophysics, the physics of the earth. Seismologists and geologists also discovered that man-made seismic waves have a more practical use: They could probe the very shallow structure of the Earth to locate its mineral, water, and hydrocarbon resources. Thus, the seismic exploration industry was born, and the seismologists working in that industry have been referred to as exploration geophysicists.
