Block model of passive seismic shear velocity and airborne electromagnetic resistivity in the Geyer area, Erzgebirge, Germany (Version 1.0) T. Ryberg, M. Kirsch, C. Haberland, R. Tolosana Delgado, A. Viezzoli, and R. Gloaguen

Short summary
Novel methods for mineral exploration play an important role in future resource exploration. The methods have to be environmentally friendly, socially accepted and cost effective by integrating multidisciplinary methodologies. We investigate the potential of passive, ambient noise tomography combined with 3D airborne electromagnetics for mineral exploration in Geyer, Germany. We show that the combination of the two geophysical data sets has promising potential for future mineral exploration.
