Module content
Lectures:

General information about the relationships between physical parameters of rocks and geophysical (physical) fields observed in rock formation by geophysical methods (gravity, magnetics, geoelectrics, seismics, magnetotellurics, well logging) – 2; gravity & magnetics – selection and matching of data acquisition methods to geological task, interpretation in aspects to get the geometry and depth of body causing anomalies and reliable petrophysical parameter (bulk density, magnetic sussceptibility) 3, geoelectrics – resistivity anomaly from rock formation (sandstone, limestone, gypsum, anhydrite, salts, coals, metallic ores, magmatic rocks), influence of formation water resistivity on the anomalies, methodology of geoelectrical measurement to assess the proper data to get information about the thickness and geometry (dip and strike) of raw material – 3, seismics as the basic geophysical method to get the structural information of stratas containing raw materials, rules of structural interpretation in seismics for hydrocarbon prospecting, coal investigations and rock materials investigations 3, magnetotellurics in structural geology – 2, well logging – various type of logs applied to get the lithology-porosity solution in terrygenic rocks and carbonates, special logs for information about ore body in rock formation, methodology of logs interpretation to get the parameters (geometrical and petrophysical) of ore body and surrounding rocks -2.
