Geophysicists are key members of a geoscience team. They apply their knowledge of earth sciences and expertise in physical measurements of the earth’s properties to enhance geological interpretations. Responsibilities vary with level of expertise, but in general they include planning, acquisition, processing, and interpretation of seismic and other geophysical data. These include both surface and borehole data, such as checkshot surveys, VSPs, surface seismic and crosswell seismic data, and single-well imaging.
Successful Geophysicists communicate well at all levels, convey information fluently and confidently, and are comfortable with client interactions.
