The Role of Electrical Resistivity Methods in Power Engineering Projects

Posted by Sean on Aug 14, 2023


We’ve discussed how Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) has served many industries. We’ve covered mining, groundwater exploration, construction, and more. Let’s take a brief look at another industry—power engineering. We’ll explore how electrical resistivity methods impact power engineering projects, focusing on their practical applications...

Exploring Borehole-to-Borehole Electrical Resistivity Surveys

Posted by Sean on Jul 05, 2023

We like to dig into various topics on our blog. One method that we want to drill into today is the borehole-to-borehole electrical resistivity survey. 

We’ve broached the subject of borehole-to-borehole surveys a couple of times on our blog. We mentioned it in our post about the Bipole-Bipole array and our Panama seminar recap. The Panama case is fascinating because it utilizes our...

How ERI Enhances Construction Projects

Posted by Sean on May 11, 2023

The beginning stages of any construction project can present various challenges that may affect its success. Addressing these issues early on, from site selection to budget constraints, is crucial. One particular concern is understanding the subsurface geology and potential anomalies that can impact construction. That's where Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) comes in. This blog post will explore how ERI can be a game-changer in construction projects, ensuring informed decision-making, preventing delays, and mitigating safety hazards.

What is Groundwater Discharge?

Posted by Sean on Mar 17, 2023

Groundwater is a favorite topic of ours here at Advanced Geosciences. There is just so much to discuss! Not only is groundwater exploration an everyday use of electrical resistivity imaging (ERI), but understanding groundwater can reshape our relationship with an invaluable resource. This time, we want to look at groundwater discharge and the delicate balance it serves on a global scale. 

In short...

Underground aquifers are layers of sediments or fractured...

What is a 4D Electrical Resistivity Survey?

Posted by Sean on Feb 08, 2023


On our blog, we’ve covered 1D, 2D, and 3D Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) surveys numerous times. We’ve made general comparisons and even compared how useful each is for groundwater exploration. One type of survey we don’t talk about is 4D ERI. Let’s talk about that today. So, what is a 4D ERI survey?

What ERI Survey Is Best For Groundwater Exploration?

Posted by Sean on May 16, 2022

We’ve discussed groundwater several times on our blog and educational series. We’ve discussed how to find it and shared a few successful cases of finding it with ERI techniques. We’ve also compared 1D, 2D, and 3D survey types in a...

Quick Tip: Using an AGI Soil Box for Soil Tests

Posted by Sean on Aug 27, 2021

We’ve covered the ASTM G57 soil test and IEEE standard grounding test on the blog before. In many cases, these standards will be your go-to solution for your soil test/grounding project. However, in some cases—the ASTM or IEEE tests show too high values so grounding wells need to be installed for power systems. Dry and arid soils typically found in desert environments can often produce these kinds of results.


In order to get a more accurate reading of...

The difference between True 3D and Linear-Measured 3D Resistivity

Posted by Sean on Jun 22, 2021


In a previous post, we briefly spoke about the difference between 1D, 2D, and 3D Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) surveys. In our recent blog post about the amount of channels you need for your Resistivity system, we touched upon the two types of 3D ERI surveys one can do—that is, true cross line measured 3D and linear-measured 3D. Let’s dive deeper into this topic and see what the difference is between the two types—and which is better suited for your...
