Technique: Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT)

Syscal Pro resistivity meter

The Syscal Pro resistivity meter connected to the Syscal Switch Pro 96 can be used to capture and store the ERT field data. The instrument has the capability to simultaneously drive up to 96 electrodes which are laid out along a line which are connected to the resistivity unit through a multiclone cable.

Potential Results

The soil resistance techniques are best suited for features that contrast with the surrounding soils in porosity, density and water content such as walls and ditches. Provides information about the vertical distribution of the resistivity within the ground (stratigraphic information that can be also used for 3D reconstructions of the subsurface).
