12.533 Rock Physics

Class Info

Fundamentals of experimental and theoretical rock physics taught at an advanced level. Rocks viewed as complex composite media with behavior dependent both on the physical and chemical properties of the constituent phases, and on their geometries. Electrical, fluid transport, and seismic properties covered in detail. Other topics such as magnetic, mechanical, and thermal responses briefly discussed. Weekly laboratory.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.533 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by F. D. Morgan.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
