Application of Electrical Resistivity in Investigating Groundwater Potential
Three locations were occupied.The apparent resistivities were calculated and plotted on log-log paper. The data were reduced and interpreted by computer iteration method for quantitative interpretation.
The result indicates seven geoelectric at the occupied positions. The results from these layers show the depth of groundwater to be at range of about 77-137m.Therefore, a borehole drilled at this location to this depth would reach an aquifer.
Result of this investigation has shown that the resistivity methods are successful in outlining the hydrogeological conditions of the subsurface.
