All important info for international students in Germany (2022/2023)

Updated: 12-06-2022 | Reading Time: 4 minutes

Geophysics is a subject very much related to the field of the geosciences. However, it possesses a specific focus in quantitative methodology applied to the physical processes and properties of the Earth and its surrounding space environment. It is an encompassing study subject that ranges from solid earth applications (such as the Earth's shape and electromagnetic dynamics) to more broader topics as the water cycle, fluid dynamics, electricity and even analogous problems associated with the Moon. All of this provides students with important tools that may be put to use towards societal needs like environmental protection, natural hazards mitigation and the exploration of mineral resources.
