The main applications:


The application of geophysical survey techniques to site investigations for civil engineering purposes. Common investigations include:

Oil & Gas

Geophysics in Oil & Gas Industry

Seismic tomography, seismic reflection, and 3D seismic surveying is the geophysical exploration technique most commonly used in the onshore and offshore petrochemical exploration industries.

Seismic reflection techniques are used to map the subsurface distribution of stratigraphy and its structure, which can be used to map out hydrocarbon plays. Seismic refraction parameters are used to calculate the density of the subsurface layers to determine such parameters as density, porosity and rock type.

Downhole geophysics tools are used within oil and gas exploration for several purposes:

Archaeology & Forensics

Ground Penetrating Radar Electromagnetics Resistivity Seismic Gravity Magnetics Borehole Logging GPS & GIS Mapping
