<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Summary</h2>

The Applied Geophysics group focuses on the characterisation of the earth’s subsurface at a range of scales using a varied range of geophysical methods that find a diverse range of applications including, but not limited to, oil and gas exploration, approaches to long-term carbon sequestration in subsurface reservoirs, geo-archaeology, seeking novel sources of clean energy (e.g. geothermal).

<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Full description</h2>

<p>We are a community of scientists developing geophysical theory and practice for the quantitative investigation of target sub-surfaces. These targets are truly diverse, ranging from understanding the detail of lab-scale samples through to crustal-scale structures that influence basin evolution.</p> <p>Our community comprises a core of academic staff and post-doctoral researchers with a growing cohort of postgraduate researchers. We welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate rearchers interested in a PhD in applied geophysics.</p> <h3>Useful links and further reading:</h3> <ul> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/see-research-degrees">Research degrees within the School of Earth and Environment</a></li> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-applied-geoscience/doc/applied-geophysics">Applied Geophysics</a><a href="http://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-applied-geoscience/doc/applied-geophysics">&nbsp;group</a></li> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/see-research">School of Earth and Environment,&nbsp;Research&nbsp;and Innovation&nbsp;</a></li> </ul> <h3>Leeds Doctoral College</h3> <p>Our <a href="https://www.leeds.ac.uk/info/130558/leeds_doctoral_college">Doctoral College</a> supports you throughout your postgraduate research journey.
