    Abstract

    The electrical resistivity geophysical method has been used with success in solving problems of location of subsurface waters, thickness of unconsolidated sediments or overburden, buried channels and other geological conditions directly related to construction engineering problems. This paper presents a brief account of the electrical resistivity method and gives several examples to demonstrate its application.
