Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Manage the summary of the subject by annotation. Learn to take basic gravimetric measurement, magnetic measurement, geoelectrical measurement, seismic measurement, radionuclear and thermic measurement.

Teaching methods



The subject gives the main brief characterization of geophysical equipments, which are used for measure in geophysical method groups and in the particular methods . In every method group there is given the main block schemas and construction elements. There is given also the data about equipments used in Czech Republic and abroad.
