Combining Resistivity and Aeromagnetic Geophysical Surveys for Groundwater Exploration in the Maghnia Plain of Algeria Djamel Boubaya 1 1 Water and Environment Laboratory, University of Tébessa, Route de Constantine, 12000 Tébessa, Algeria The geophysical survey is employed to determine geoelectric parameters of formations, identify aquifer units and also determine its … Subsurface Surveys & Associates, Inc. www.subsurfacesurveys.com geop@subsurfacesurveys.com Geophysical Methods & Applications SubSurface Surveys & Associates, Inc., established in 1988, specializes in near-surface geophysics and utility locating services and is dedicated to establishing strong client relationships. When geophysical techniques are employed, the 4- electrode electrical resistivity survey technique is normally used. This method is very important for both groundwater resource mapping and quality evaluations. Nowadays the used of geophysical techniques for groundwater exploration and water quality evaluations has increases due to rapid advances in computer software and other numerical modeling techniques. Keywords: Groundwater exploration; Geophysical survey; Water well; Haramaya University; Lake Haramaya watershed Introduction Water is an essence food and basic component of life. Some examples of groundwater problems include aquifer characterization, groundwater exploration, basin delineation, fracture mapping, karst investigations, aquifer storage and recovery monitoring, plume delineation, and investigating groundwater/surface water interactions. Desk study/literature review ii. Electromagnetic geophysical survey for groundwater exploration in the voltaian of northern ghana. This program was funded largely by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Geoscientists Without Borders Program (GWB), whose mission statement is: “The mission of Magnetic surveys can be made on the land surface, from an aircraft, or from a ship. Groundwater Assessment. Zimbabwe the use of resistivity surveys improved the success rate for wells from 50% to 85 % [2]. In Puntland, groundwater is the most sustainable resources of water where exploration programs are still in an initial stage to understand the nature, haw where this groundwater can be reach. Groundwater exploration using integrated geophysical techniques. Exploration geophysics is an applied branch of geophysics and economic geology, which uses physical methods, such as seismic, gravitational, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic at the surface of the Earth to measure the physical properties of the subsurface, along with the anomalies in those properties. Electrical resistivity surveys were carried out at a site of shallow hydrocarbon contamination in Ahoada, South-South Nigeria. Larry Pax Chegbeleh, John Apambilla Akudago, Makoto Nishigaki, Samuel Nana K. Edusei . Geophysical survey equipment for groundwater detection is using the resistivity tomography method to get the characteristics of the underground and analyze the underground geological structure. Measurement of the earth’s subsurface properties: GEOSS offers multiple robust and scientifically proven geophysical techniques for the improved characterization of the subsurface. The table identifies the utility of each method in airborne, ground, or borehole applications. 5 6. However, the results from the use of this technique have given low success rates for boreholes in the Tarkwa area. 3 Citations (Scopus) Overview; Fingerprint; Abstract. Survey for Groundwater Studies in the Tarkwa Mining Area, ... geophysical techniques for borehole siting. Geo-technical and Site Investigations, On shore and Near shore Project management and Technical services Site … • The main objective of these surveys is to study and understand the hydrological cycle of the region, to understand overall concept of type, nature, no: aquifers and quality of groundwater. Bhoojal Survey and Recharging Our Organization provides consultancy on various projects of Ground water exploration, Hydrogeological survey , geophysical survey , Rain water harvesting , Geotechnical testing and Water resources development for rural and urban water supply, Infrastructure Projects, Industries and Agricultural projects.
