Gravimetric measurements constitute a valuable means to explore large-scale structures as well as local inhomogenities in rock density. Gravimetry is usually applied to:

For gravimetric surveys we own several metal spring gravimeters (LaCoste-Romberg) and automatic quarz-spring gravimeters (Scintrex). The indispensible high-precision geodetic surveying is done with RTK DGPS or tacheometers of Trimble and Stonex.
