Measurements of the Natural Potential

Natural potential measurement involves geophysical methods of recording electromagnetic field components, gravimetric, electrical, magnetic, etc. of the earth, without the contribution of an artificial sources signal generating. The method is often applicable in geological and hydrogeological exploration on large areas, away from interference.
