Poster: Buried Waste Characterization: Soil Thickness, Vertical and Lateral Resolution
Induced Polarization (IP) and resistivity data acquisition is a cost-effective, non-intrusive, fast method for determining the soil cover thickness, footprint (lateral) and vertical extent of buried waste material. With stations every 7.5 feet and lines every 30 feet, a three person field crew can cover approximately 1.5 acres in a typical field day. Data coverage ranges from the surface to a depth of 30-40 feet. Greater depths can be easily achieved by changing the parameters of the survey.
