About 3D-US Lab

The 3D-US Lab consists of a research group from GFZ German Reasearch Centre for Geosciences, industry representatives and mining universities.



We offer underground high-resolution and large-scale seismic explorations: seismic borehole and underground measurements, contract research and test measurements.


We are working on projects for pre- and environment exploration in underground structures to identify geological structures and fault zones.
