Course Objective

To teach the use of electrical methods in the solution of underground problems.

Course Content

Description of natural and artificial sources of electricity, measurement and evaluation of these areas where necessary, the main content of the course. In this respect, geophysics requires a wide variety of electrical methods, so it is necessary to dominate the subject. The electrical properties of the rocks and the measurement techniques of the environments will be discussed in detail.
