In the following, some professional fields are listed:

  • Oil and gas industry
  • Environmental geophysics
  • Data analysis and management
  • Hydrogeophysics
  • Geophysical prospection
  • Remote Sensing
  • Seismology
  • Construction ground investigation
  • Raw material exploration (e.g. metal, minerals, rare earths)
  • Borehole geophysics
  • Archaeology
