Telluric and D.C. Resistivity Techniques Applied to the Geophysical Investigation of Basin and Range Geothermal Systems, Part II: A Numberical Model Study of the Dipole-Dipole and Schlumberger Resistivity Methods
Description: This paper is a two-dimensional numerical model study and comparison of the polar dipole-dipole and Schlumberger resistivity arrays. A catalog of dipole-dipole and Schlumberger apparent resistivity pseudo-sections is presented. It is concluded that: for the Schlumberger array, data can be accurately interpreted only if the resistivity structure is horizontally layered, and conductive bodies having a depth of burial greater than their width are not observed; for the dipole-dipole array, complex anomaly patterns unrelated in appearance to the causative structure result from simple models, hence, a familiarity with model results is essential to interpretation of these data.
