The Major in Geophysics is devoted to study of the processes and structures of the Earth’s interior, connecting geophysical observations at the surface with concepts and modelling of physical processes and material properties within our planet. Geophysicists seek to answer questions of global significance such as: What drives plate tectonics and how do lithosphere plates interact with the mantle? How does the magnetic field of the Earth originate? How, where and when do earthquakes form and how can the risks associated with earthquakes be diminished?
