WikiProject Geophysics

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to geophysics policy, production, technologies and sources.

This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list found there.


In particular, this WikiProject aims to coordinate activities of creating articles about geophysics technology.

Information about the assessment of WP:Geophysics articles is located at Wikipedia:WikiProject Geophysics/Assessment.

Articles tagged (most likely by bot) with the WP:Geophysics banner, but still do not have an appropriate assessment, a listed in Category:Unassessed geophysics articles. Please consider to assess them.

Tagging geophysics article by bot

Articles automatically tagged by bot are listed in Category:Automatically assessed Geophysics articles. You are invited to confirm the bot assessment by removing the 'autotagged=yes' parameter from the project banner template or remove the project banner if the article is not belonging to the scope of the WP:Geophysics.

Article title

Following Wikipedia standard, article titles should relate to the best-known name in most cases. However, this is somewhat complicated by the fact that there's a lot of ways to describe the desirability or purpose of different kinds of energy: "renewable", "non-nuclear", "sustainable", "non fossil", etc. These terms should be always avoided in titles in favour of a technically specific term that implies a kind of technology. Where one technology deals with many sources of energy, be careful, e.g. a turbine can burn many kinds of fuel, but a gasoline turbine only burns that one kind.


To avoid the creation of duplicate articles, it is good to create a few redirects as soon as a new article is created. These should deal with all common variants, e.g. solar power versus solar energy.
