A review of the self-potential method applied on groundwater resources

Véronique Naudet & Véronique Naudet
Standard geophysical methods detect the presence of water by changes of ground physical properties, but none of them are sensitive to actual groundwater flow, except the Self-Potential (SP) method. This method consists of measuring the natural electric field within the subsurface with non-polarisable electrodes. After correcting for telluric currents and cultural noise, the remaining electrical potentials are related to natural polarisation mechanisms occurring at depth. The main contributions of SP-signals are associated to groundwater flow...
