    ASTM G187

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the equipment and a procedure for the measurement of soil resistivity, for samples removed from the ground, for use in the control of corrosion of buried structures.

    1.2 Procedures allow for this test method to be used n the field or in the laboratory.

    1.3 The test method procedures are for the resistivity measurement of soil samples in the saturated condition and in the as-received condition.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. Soil resistivity values are reported in ohm-centimeter.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
