The Master of Science Programme was established in 2007 by the Department of Earth Sciences and the Department of Physics, with the contribution of the Department of Information Engineering, of the University of Pisa, and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Polytechnic of Milan. The course is 2 year-long full-time, leading to the acquisition of 120 ECTS of which 40 credits are dedicated to the M.Sc. thesis work. The programme is offered in English.

Exploration and Applied Geophysics is a discipline that integrates physics principles and knowledges with knowledges of geology, engineering, and digital processing. It develops and applies non-invasive research methods aimed at the study of the shallow parts (from a few centimeters to a few kilometers) of the Earth and of man-made manufactures (Other Information).

The course is research-oriented and it develops through a process aimed at a deeper methodological understanding of different surveying techniques (electric, magnetic, radar, seismic, gravimetric), and of methods related to the processing, analysis and interpretation of the data (Objectives of the Degree). The principal applications are in the domains of exploration and production of energy and mineral resources, of investigation for engineering and environment, and of geological and archaeological research (Job Prospects). During the course of studies, the students will acquire hands-on experience using industry standard software and equipment.

Admission requirements: the course is open to all students with a pertinent scientific bachelor's degree, or other equivalent or superior foreign academic qualification. Our records show that past students have come from a wide range of disciplines including Geology, Physics, Telecommunications, and/or Electronics Engineering, Civil and/or Environmental Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics. Admission to the Master’s Degree course is subject to passing a test by which we evaluate the candidate’s skills and motivations, and verify that the necessary requirements for the course are satisfied. A knowledge of the English language equivalent or superior to B2 level is a prerequisite for admission to the programme.

Double Degree Programme: the University of Pisa and the Montan University of Leoben (Austria) have established a Double Degree Programme “International Master of Applied and Exploration Geophysics”. Students will be awarded a double diploma in Applied and Exploration Geophysics issued by the two partner Universities. Students enrolled in the Master of Science Programme in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at the University of Pisa may also apply for admission to the “International Master of Applied and Exploration Geophysics”.

  • Lecture: Time-Lapse ERT (Electrical Resistivity Tomography) Monitoring of Hydrogeological Risks

    Prof. Azadeh Hojat from the Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman (Iran) delivers the lecture "Time-Lapse ERT (Electrical Resistivity Tomography) Monitoring of Hydrogeological Risks". Students and researchers are invited on Thursday, the 28th of March, hrs. 9:30-11:00, Room C of the DST.

    Short Abstract: In the recent decade, there has been an increasing interest in using electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) method for monitoring of hydrogeological risks. The talk will present the potential of ERT method in mapping the variations of water saturation within embankments and slopes. A couple of case studies of the Tech-Levee-Watch project (funded by Fondazione CARIPLO) where ERT is being used as a permanent monitoring system to detect subsurface inhomogeneities will be discussed. The importance of developing site-specific data processing algorithms to guarantee valid results for successful entry of the method to early warning alarm systems will be stressed. The future perspectives will be also discussed.

    Short Biography: Assistant Professor of Applied Geophysics at the Department of Mining Engineering, Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, and Adjunct Professor at Politecnico di Milano. With expertise in electrical methods, her main research interests are applications of geophysical techniques, especially geoelectrical and GPR methods, to solve different environmental and engineering problems. Hojat is now collaborating in different national and international projects where ERT technique is used for a variety of problems, from mineral exploration projects and detection of subsurface structures to time-lapse monitoring of hydrogeological risks. Hojat is also involved in a couple of GPR projects to monitor the quality of stones and to detect construction conditions of different structures. The main perspective of her research plans is to improve data processing algorithms as well as developing new application areas for ERT and GPR techniques.

    She established the Applied Geophysics Laboratory at Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman in 2013 and she has been managing the activities of the lab since then.

    She is a member of national and international geophysical societies (EAGE, Iranian Geophysical Society, Austrian Geophysical Society) and Iranian Mining Engineering Organization.

     

    Only for the students of the Master Course in Exploration and Applied Geophysics, attending the lecture will contribute to obtain cfu for the "Other Activities".
