DC resistivity methods for determining resistivity in the Earth's crust



DC resistivity methods for determining resistivity in the Earth's crust



Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors 10(3): 0-208



The use of Schlumberger and dipole arrays for crustal-scale resistivity soundings is considered. Advantages and disadvantages of the two methods are described. The depth to which resistivity may be determined from field measurements is discussed as well as the determination from the sounding curves of various parameters associated with layered structure. The interpretation of experimental data using reference curves as well as two approaches used in computer assisted interpretation are discussed.
