Guide: EV 203 Rock and Soil Electrical Properties

2022-01-10T03:47:33-06:00

Electrical Methods (i.e., direct current (DC) or low frequency methods) Introduction Electrical resistivity techniques are routinely used to solve hydrogeological (e.g., finding water bearing units (aquifers)), environmental (e.g., delineating groundwater plumes), and engineering (e.g., locating subsurface voids) problems.  Electrical methods measure the flow of electric current in the ground thereby investigating electrical properties of the subsurface.  The resulting subsurface geoelectrical image (represented as changes in [...]
