WHAT DOES GEOPHYSICS MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Geophysics /dʒiːoʊfɪzɪks/ is the physics of the Earth and its environment in space; also the study of the Earth using quantitative physical methods. The term geophysics sometimes refers only to the geological applications: Earth's shape; its gravitational and magnetic fields; its internal structure and composition; its dynamics and their surface expression in plate tectonics, the generation of magmas, volcanism and rock formation. However, modern geophysics organizations use a broader definition that includes the hydrological cycle including snow and ice; fluid dynamics of the oceans and the atmosphere; electricity and magnetism in the ionosphere and magnetosphere and solar-terrestrial relations; and analogous problems associated with the Moon and other planets. Although geophysics was only recognized as a separate discipline in the 19th century, its origins go back to ancient history. The first magnetic compasses were lodestones, appearing in written records, found in early surviving descriptions from China, India and Greece, with a modern magnetic compass dating back to the fourth century BC and the first seismoscope was built in 132 BC.
Definition of geophysics in the English dictionary
