This course describes the processes and energy sources shaping the solid Earth's physical evolution and the means by which the properties of the planet’s interior can be inferred. Topics include detection of the Earth's core, Earth's magnetic field, manifestations of Earth's secular cooling (e.g., mantle convection) and Earth's gravity field.
