Course Objectives The classical original research articles mainly in the field of Geophysics, but students are welcomed to bring along to class any other article they may find it attractive, and those of other relevant Earth Sciences disciplines, will be discussed. The main scope of this course is to attract the attention of potential undergraduate students to continue studying at graduate levels (M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees), and to influence them the importance of the research-oriented study. Therefore, it is aimed to form a new insight among young talents towards a science society extending the love of science on the long run.

1. to give insight into scientific research and discoveries

2. to train students how to access and evaluate scientific data and research articles.
Course Description The dynamic elements of the Earth’s interior will be discussed and geodynamic case studies will also be thought along with theory of plate tectonics earthquake seismology observations.
Course Outcomes Students who pass the course will be able to:

1. reach information through www and develop skills to access recent research articles.

2. develop skills to successfully prepare a report/seminar as such.
