APPICATION OF GEOELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY IMAGING TO INVESTIGATE GROUNDWATER POTENTIAL
Geoelectrical resistivity imaging using both 2D and Vertical Electrical Sounding (1D) method was carried out in Atan , Ado/Odo Ota Local Government, Ogun State ,Nigeria using the PAS earth resistivity meter.Three profiles was carried out using both Wenner and Schlumberger array configuration. The data was interpreted using RES2DINV for 2D and computer iteration method (WinResist) for VES. Results showed that there are five major layers which described the geological structure of the study area. The resistivity values ranges between 1200â„¦m to 4000â„¦m, 500â„¦m to 1000â„¦m, 400â„¦m to 800â„¦m , 200â„¦m to 400â„¦m and 60.7 â„¦m to approximately 100â„¦m respectively according to the structures. VES1,VES 2, VES 3 and VES 4 apparent resistivity curve shows the different layers with their corresponding thicknesses. The study area revealed that the depth to the aquifer ranges between 130m t0 140m.
