The results of experimental studies carried out with using the technology of frequency-resonance processing and interpretation of Earth remote sensing data (satellite images) and photographs in order to study the possibility of using it for hydrogen accumulations searching and locating are analyzed. The experiments were carried out at the site of hydrogen production in Mali, at the site of exploratory well drilling in the USA, and also at the sites of visible hydrogen degassing in various regions of the world. When processing an image of a hydrogen production site in Mali, signals were recorded at the resonant frequencies of hydrogen and deuterium. By scanning the cross-section near one of the wells, the responses at the hydrogen frequencies were recorded in the following depth intervals: 1) 25-245 m; 2) 635-750 m; 3) 950-970 m. The results of studies at the well drilling site in the United States allow us to conclude that there are no hydrogen accumulations in commercial volumes within it. However, this area is promising for the search for oil, gas and gas condensate. At the surveyed areas of visible hydrogen degassing in the USA, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Oman almost always recorded responses at the resonant frequencies of hydrogen and deuterium. Within these areas, vertical channels of deep fluids, mineral matter, and chemical elements migration were found. In many parts of the survey areas, responses were also recorded at the resonant frequencies of oil, gas and condensate. The results of experimental studies of a demonstration character allow us to state that the mobile technology of frequency-resonance processing and decoding of remote sensing data (satellite images) and photographs can be successfully used for the operative detection and mapping of possible accumulations (large) of hydrogen in areas (sites) of intensive hydrogen degassing.
