Two years of chemistry, including general and organic chemistry, and a year of general biology are required. Aluminum metal is too reactive chemically to occur as pure aluminum in nature. Geophysics and geophysical engineering have important roles to play in the solution of challenging problems facing the inhabitants of this planet, such as providing fresh water, food, and energy for Earth’s growing population, evaluating sites for underground construction and containment of hazardous waste, monitoring noninvasively the aging infrastructures of developed nations, mitigating the threat of geohazards (earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, avalanches) to populated areas, contributing to homeland security (including detection and removal of unexploded ordnance and land mines), evaluating changes in climate and managing humankind’s response to them, and exploring other planets.

Given the natural connections between these various fields and geophysics, it may be of interest for students in other majors to consider choosing to minor in geophysics, or to choose geophysics as an area of specialization. Geophysics is an applied and interdisciplinary science; students therefore must have a strong foundation in physics, mathematics, geology and computer sciences. Take this true/false quiz, and see how much you know.

They may have diverse professional backgrounds and their understanding of the sciences may vary widely. Problem solvers of the future will be required to address both the natural and societal impacts of these problems and their solutions. From August 2007 to July 2009: Harry Hess Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Geosciences, Princeton Univ. All of this provides our students with an inspiring environment in which to grow their knowledge, experience and skills.

Johnson Haas' recent talk, "Planetary Water," given for the Lee Honors College's Lyceum Lecture Series, is available to view (select "Lyceum-Our Blue Marble-Water, Home, and Humanity"). In 1962, the Graduate Institute of Geophysics was founded in Miaoli, Taiwan as the re-establishment of the University. The poles will alternate their angles, either toward (summer) or away (winter) from Sol (Sun). For now you probably have to check the programs in these universities/colleges one by one to find out the funding opportunities and I am sure the funding sources can change from year to year.

Our department is committed to serving UNO students who are interested in developing a deep understanding of the Earth, and her processes, materials, landforms, history, and even inhabitants. Systematics research emphasizes the origin and evolution of selected taxa of the fishes, turtles, archosaurs (especially dinosaurs, birds and lizards) and mammals and Triassic cynodonts. The focus of your research could vary from analyzing meteors or using isotope techniques to assess environmental change over long periods, to modelling volcanic activity and predicting earthquakes.
