Electrical Resistivity Method [SGE / ERT]

Electrical resistivity method uses the phenomenon of conduction of electric current through the resort deposit, which is the measurement of soil resistivity changes using

a set of electrodes and measuring current in various configurations depending on the nature of the measurements. The method can be used in a classical variant of soundings (SGE), for which we obtain the distribution of the resistance as a function of depth for a single location or in a variant of electrical resistivity tomography (ERT). ERT method allows you to perform measurements and their interpretation directly in the 2D geometry on sections of any length.
