Geoelectrical investigations

Electrical prospecting uses a large variety of techniques, each based on some different electrical property or characteristic of materials in the earth. This differentiation is manifested in electrical resistivity and its inverse, electrical conductivity and polarization under the action of external electric fields.

Geoelectrical investigations are often used in prospecting for minerals, hydrogeology, geological exploration, engineering geophysics. The methods are adaptable to every situation and are looking to maximize results.

DC geoelectrical methods are frequently used with good results, to investigate the geological structure covered by water (rivers, lakes).
