GFZ provides several instruments. Via the "Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam (GIPP)" seismic and magnetotelluric instruments and sensors for joint projects with universities and other research facilities are provided. It is hosted by GFZ section Geophysical Deep Sounding

Broadband-onshore stations and ocean bottom seimometers for the preferred use within amphibious projects are provided by the "German instrument pool for amphibian seismology" (Deutscher Geräte-Pool für amphibische Seismologie, DEPAS). The onshore component is maintained by the GFZ,the offshore component is operated by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven (AWI).
