This research is devoted to the construction and analysis of a correct 3D velocity model in the lithosphere in the territory of the Ukrainian Shield of the Kirovograd ore region. Results of deep seismic sounding, presented by 5 profiles of submeridional and latitudinal direction, were used as the input parameters for the model. 3D Volumetric velocity modeling was provided by the different approximation methods taking into account known geological data.
