_FIVE-YEAR INTEGRATED M.Sc. COURSES

_5501: APPLIED GEOLOGY

_The Earth System is continuously evolving through a series of complex dynamic processes. Understanding and modeling these processes is a challenging, but also intrinsically exciting task. These complex processes interact with each other leading to the development of oceans, mountain belts, plateaus, flood plains, deserts and various picturesque landscapes; more importantly, they also result in local scale enrichment of various metallic, non- metallic, water and fuel resources that have formed the backbone of the human civilization since its existence. On the flip side, catastrophic events like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and landslides represent the sinister manifestations of these processes. Geology and Geophysics, the two sub-disciplines of Earth Science, have the common goals of understanding the origin of Earth vis-a-vis the solar system, of quantifying the Earth's evolutionary processes, searching for Earth Resources and predicting and mitigating natural and anthropogenic disasters and hazards. Geology primarily involves the unravelling of the physics and chemistry of Earth processes through direct sampling of earth materials like rocks, ores, soils, water and vegetation in the field, and the development of sophisticated laboratory methods and tools for interpretation of the collected field data. The primary objective of Geophysics is to probe the inaccessible depths of the Earth for understanding its 'anatomy' on the basis of bulk physical (electrical, magnetic, electromagnetic, gravitational, elastic and visco-elastic) properties and phenomena, such as electrical, magnetic, electromagnetic and gravitational properties, and propagation of elastic waves through its interior. Inevitably, Geophysics requires sophisticated instrumentation and rigorous mathematical tools. The Department of Geology and Geophysics of lIT Kharagpur offers five-year integrated M.Sc. programs in both the disciplines, imparting training on applied aspects of Earth Science.
