For the investigation of the tectonical situation of the Harz mountains various geophysical surveys were carried out during recent years. These included reflection seismic and refraction seismic lines crossing the Harz in NNE-SSW direction east of Clausthal-Zellerfeld. To complement this data magnetotelluric recordings were acquired in the same area, and a detailed gravity survey covered mainly the northern Harz margin. The investigations were directed primarily to test any evidence for overthrusting along the Harz margin with the possibility of less-consolidated sediments bearing hydrocarbon potential below the more-consolidated Harz sediments of mainly Lower Carboniferous or older age.
