Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) Surveys on Cedar River Floodplain, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 2015

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) surveys were collected in April 2015 to support hydrogeologic characterization of the alluvial aquifer and to assess the suitability of larger-scale airborne geophysics. For this investigation, five sites were surveyed with ERT methods. At each site three surveys were collected, including: dipole-dipole, Schlumberger, and inverse Schlumberger configurations. For each survey a total of 56 electrodes spaced 5-meters (m) apart were used. During the ERT measurement, current is injected through two current electrodes and voltage is measured sequentially across multiple pairs of potential electrodes, which is used to determine the apparent resistivity of the subsurface. Results were combined into a merged dataset. ERT surveys can be inverted to obtain resistivity profiles that can be interpreted for subsurface layers. This data release provides only the raw ERT data.
