This is a collection of various cases where the 2D resistivity imaging method pioneered by Advanced Geosciences Inc have been successfully applied. Click on a section below and you will be shown a full 2D resistivity imaging brochure detailing the case in question.

These cases have been submitted by satisfied customers whom we thank for permission to publish their data on the web. Each detailed broschure will have a citation for the source of the data.


Using resistivity imaging to delineate contaminated fractures.
Mapping of hydrocarbon contamination beneath an old gas station using resistivity imaging


Pollution plume mapping using high resolution resistivity imaging.
Three parallel resistivity imaging profiles show the extent of the pollution plume.


Mapping the limits of a municipal landfill using resistivity imaging.
The objective here was to map the horizontal and vertical extent of a municipal landfill. Resistivity imaging supplied the answer.

The geophysical instruments used in the resistivity imaging cases described here are the AGI SuperSting R8/IP earth resistivity meter and the AGI Sting R1 earth resistivity meter together with the AGI Swift multi electrode cables and smart switches.
These make up systems with extremely fast data acquisition in the field.
Today the single-channel Sting R1 has been replaced by the even faster and more accurate instrument:
SuperSting R8/IP
The interpretation of data like this can be done using the 2D inversion program AGI EarthImager 2D available from AGI.
