TEXTBOOK AND TECHNOLOGY USED
There is no compulsory textbook for this unit, but I recommend that you get a copy of “Geophysics for the Mineral Exploration Geoscientist” by Dentith and Mudge or “An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics” by Reynolds or “An Introduction to Geophysical Exploration” by Kearey et al or “Environmental and Engineering Geophysics” by Sharma as they look at the material at an appropriate level.
The unit also has a WEB site which can be found through the iLearn WEBSITE at https://ilearn.mq.edu.au/login/MQ/ . This site contains information such as copies of colour images, copies of PowerPoint’s shown in class, and copies of the practicals that we do in class. The WEB site will also allow access to the digital version of the lectures recorded through the iLecture system. It is recommended that you acquire a geophysical text to supplement what is up on the iLearn site. At the start of the year you should be issued with a username and password (Macquarie oneID) to access all the WEB sites available for the units you have taken. This will get you into the front page of the GEOS305 WEB site.
Information for students about access to online units is available at
I recommend that you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser, as it seems to have far less problems than Internet Explorer with iLearn.
