Winter 2016 - This class has exposed me to surface of geophysics. And that's all. Did I learn how to be a competent geophysicist? No. Did this class get me more excited about geophysics? No. Better yet, this class showed me how to effectively take the excitement out of geophysics, which I personally see as a hard feat. The professor does not have a good rapport with his students. His presentation style is erratic, his expectations are haphazard, and his labs confuse students. This class will likely be the first and last geophysics lab I will take in my life. It is unfortunate that it had to be with this professor.
