It is difficult to see visualize underground features of geological interest underground. Exploration geophysicists use seismic explosive charges and a grid of seismic sensors to build a 3D dataset for of material densities below the surface subterranean mapping. Stereo 3D is used to view this these data images to and make more accurate predictions of where oil and gas reservoirs are might be located. Since drilling into the earth is very expensive, this 3D visualization process can potentially make oil and gas exploration more efficient, increasing the number productive discoveries.
