  • Introduction: Earth as a planet, development of Earth sciences, Earth’s fields, principles of the internal structure of the Earth
  • Gravity and figure of the Earth: reference spheroid and geoid, gravity field, isostasy, rock density, gravity measurements, gravity corrections, Bouguer anomaly, regional and residual anomaly, interpretation of gravity data, gravity maps
  • Earth’s magnetic field: origin of magnetic field, inner magnetic field (dipole and non-dipole), secular variations, outer magnetic field, temporal variations, magnetic susceptibility, remanent magnetism, magnetometers, magnetic corrections, interpretation of magnetic anomalies, paleomagnetism and global tectonics, magnetic maps
  • Earth’s heat: sources of Earth’s heat, transfer of heat (conduction, convection, radiation), geothermal investigations, temperature measurements, thermal conductivity, heat flow density, Earth’s heat and global tectonics, geothermal energy, geothermic maps
  • Earth’s interior: seismological investigations of the Earth’s interior, surface waves analysis, seismic discontinuities, models of Earth’s interior, global seismic tomography, seismic surface waves analyses, free oscillation of the Earth
  • Plate tectonics: lithosphere-asthenosphere system, lithospheric plates, development of plate tectonic theory, continental and oceanic crust, divergent, convergent and transform plate boundaries, hot spots, plate tectonics and global seismicity, rheology, global geodynamics, gravity, magnetic and geothermal investigations of global tectonics, deep seismic sounding of the lithosphere
