Groundwater Exploration in Awa-Ijebu, Nigeria, Using the Resistivity Method by Usifo A. G. Vol.25 ( Nov. 2013). pp 239-250
Sale price: $5.00

A geophysical investigation was carried out in Awa- Ijebu, Nigeria to determine the groundwater potential and the geological structure of the area. The method employed in this study was the Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES) using the Schlumberger configuration. Ten soundings were carried out at different locations.  Half- spacing in the range of 1- 100m with the aid of ABBEM TERRAMETER SAS (Signal Averaging System) 3000B and a booster SAS 2000 manufactured in Sweden was applied.The interpretation of the resistivity curves over the study area within geologic terrain often referred to as basement environment indicates that the area have groundwater potential.
