Title: Electrical Resistivity investigation of the Lateritic Soil in Block 17, Oil Concession Area, South Kurdofan State, Sudan
Author: Elarabi, Hussein; Jabir, Ali
Abstract: Soil electrical resistivity is a measure of how much the soil resists the flow of electricity. The goal of this paper is to evaluate the potentiality of the lateritic soil in west Sudan. A total of six vertical electrical sounding (VES) locations were conducted. The soundings (VES) of the six locations along a proposed pipeline and facilitates area (blok17), South Kordufan State in South West Sudan were evaluated. A wide range resistivity values along the line and at different depths was observed. The soil resistivity near the surface was found to be varies considerably at all six locations. The values obtained from three locations were significantly high comparing to the other three. This difference probably reflects differences in mineralogy, and water content in the upper soil layer due to local topography and drainage situation. The results obtained are acceptable compare to those found in literature.
