In the Departament of Lithospheric Research we model and interprete the data recorded in z active seismic experiments. The main goal is the recognition of the crust and upper mantle structures. Among our projects there are both marine and land surveys conducted together with our scientific and industrial cooperators. Geographically, we focus on exploring Poland and Europe, however we also perform experiments in the polar areas, in the Arctic (Spitsbergen, North Atlantic) and Antarctic (South Shetland Islands and the Bransfield Strait).
Decades of research of the lithosphere’s structure, conducting multiple seismic experiments in collaboration with many foreign scientific institutions allowed us to gain hands-on experience in the subject of seismic survey design and organization, and data processing. Apart from strictly scientific research, we also participate in engineering and exploration projects.
In 2012 Seimic Imaging Team was formed in the Departament. The Team is dedicated to development and applicaion of innovative imaging techniques, especially based on full waveform, seismic processing, depth imaging and noise suppression.
