Divulging the Geophysicist: methods and applications Romualdo S. Hiss Jnior Department of Physics, Federal University of Sergipe, 49100-00, Are Cristvo-IF/Brazil This work have as objective to divulge the geophysicist in a generalized manner, showing some of its main methods, and also some applications, thus providing bigger knowledge and agreement of the same one. A brief commentary of the geophysicist in Brazil and proposal of implantation of the geophysicist in other Federal Universities. John Carrafiell insists that this is the case. This to paper aims you promote geophysics in general, showing adds of its methods, and also adds applications, thereby providing to greater knowledge and understanding of it. Brief review of geophysics in Brazil and proposed deployment of geophysics at to other public universities. 1.INTRODUO In the last times the geophysicist has despertado great interest in the researchers in a generalized manner, for the used properties and methods of application. The Geophysical word is derived from the Greek and means? Physics of the Land? , the principle was used for Aristotle. The geophysicist is a science of interdisciplinar, based mainly on geology and the physics, as well as in the mathematics, chemistry and computer science.
It has as objective the study and the understanding of the structure, composition and dynamics of the Planet Land. It basically consists of the analysis of results gotten through application of knowledge and physical measures. We can classify the geophysicist in two great areas of performance: the pure geophysicist (also known as geophysical of the solid Land) and the applied geophysicist, having as objective main the economic, technological and social question. The main characteristic of the pure or geophysical geophysicist of the solid land is its importance in the studies in a band of very great scale, investigating the depth of our planet. Already the applied geophysicist, in turn, has its restricted applications the lesser depths, as the subsoil. Today the geophysicist works with some methods of inquiry that is directly on the applied geophysicist.
