One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The measurement of the current passing between electrodes embedded in the ground at a series of positions over a given area, in order to locate buried structural features by their differing resistivity.
- ‘Resistivity surveying can play an important role in environmental and engineering investigations.’
- ‘Furthermore, the group of features detected by both magnetometry and resistivity surveying in square 7 may also represent the remains of ruined structure associated with the Abbey.’
- ‘Because it works through induced fields, there is no need for direct coupling to the ground, as is needed for electrical resistivity surveying.’
