Abstract/Summary

Although electrical resistivity has been used by the oil industry for more than 50 years to locate oil resources, the use of this method for geotechnical purposes has been limited. This is largely due to the non-unique nature of the values, the intricate interpretative process and a degree of scepticism related to the potential usefulness of this method.
