Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the link between electrical properties of the subsurface relevant environmental, hydrogeological and geological processes. The students are able to identify the advantages and drawbacks of the different electrical and electromagnetic geophysical methods, as required to design and conduct a geophysical survey.

Subject of course

  • The electrical properties of rocks and soils
  • Electrical conduction mechanisms in the subsurface
  • Electrical Double Layer
  • Induced Polarization imaging: mechanisms, survey design and interpretation
  • Transient Electromagnetic sounding: application and interpretation
  • Data-error characterization and Inversion
