GeoProbe subterranean model. Three-dimensional model of the subterranean structure of a region as modelled by GeoProbe software. This model is used by prospectors to look for underground deposits of oil and other natural resources. Different colours represent different rock types and formations. GeoProbe combines the data from thousands of seismic probes. A seismic probe creates an artificial mini-earthquake so that geologists can determine the rock types below by studying the pattern of shockwaves generated. GeoProbe has been developed by Magic Earth LLP of Houston, Texas, USA.
