Marine Petrophysics, 7.5 credits

About the education

This course provides an introduction to marine petrophysics, the study of sediment physical properties and their interaction with fluids. The course covers laboratory and in-situ methods for measuring standard petyrophysical properties of marine sediments. These include, pore space properties and permeability, as well the elastic, geocmechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The course will look at quantitative relationships between these properties, and through numerical exercises, the students will learn how they are commonly applied within industry and research to investigate different marine geological processes. Re-exams may be held on campus.

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
