How Geophysics Is Used In The Construction Industry

The basic dictionary definition of geophysics is the physics of the earth, but this branch of geology deals with so much more than that simple meaning implies. Seismology is the branch of science that deals with earthquakes. Oceanography is the branch that deals with the physical landscape of the ocean and the marine organisms that live there. Volcanology scientists study volcanoes. These and other disciplines frequently overlap and together make up geophysics.
