Geophysics

Geophysicists at UC Davis study the physics of geologic processes that shape our planet, from the inner core to outer space, and use physical measurements and models to characterize the structure of Earth and other planets. The Geophysics group at UC Davis is involved in a wide range of research areas including geodynamics, planetary geophysics, volcanic processes, earthquake physics, geodesy, natural hazards, and tectonics.
