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 be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by F. Morgan.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 54-819.

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