Assessment of geo-hazard potential and site investigations using Resistivity Imaging

0
The use of geophysical methods for evaluating subsurface contamination of sites is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. The paper presents the assessment of geo-hazard potential of a site in the City of Duncanville, Texas using Resistivity Imaging (RI). Resistivity Imaging was being used to identify areas of environmental concern and to develop a detailed image of subsurface conditions. Both two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) resistivity imaging were conducted for the site. A geotechnical site investigations program, which included three test soil borings, was conducted, to confirm the finding from resistivity imaging.
