The results of experimental studies carried out using the technology of frequency-resonance processing and interpretation of remote sensing data (Earth remote sensing) (satellite images) and photographs with the aim of studying the internal structure of volcanic structures are analyzed. The experiments were carried out at the locations of well-known volcanic complexes Phlegrean Fields and Vesuvius, as well as the mud volcano in the reserve of Riserva Naturale Salse di Nirano in Italy. Additionally, the photos of the Tatja and Mendeleev volcanoes, located on the Kunashir island of the Kuril Ridge, as well as of the Taranani volcano in New Zealand, are processed by the frequency-resonance method. The results of the deep frequency-resonance sounding of the cross-section in the vents of active and old volcanoes show that the roots of almost all volcanoes end in a molten (liquid) layer of rocks, which is detected and fixed on the globe almost everywhere in the depth interval 194-225 km. Operatively conducted experimental studies showed that: a) the frequency-resonance method of remote sensing data processing and interpreting can be used when conducting a reconnaissance survey of large-sized and hard-to-reach areas within a short time; b) the use of mobile and direct-prospecting methods (including the frequency-resonance technology of satellite images processing) in the search and exploration of ore and combustible minerals will contribute to the acceleration and optimization of the exploration process in general.
