Vertical Electrical Sounding, stratification, Herle Village


Electrical resistivity survey is best tool to understand the subsurface geology. Direct current resistivity survey of Herle village, Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, was conducted using the Wenner electrode configuration at 5 stations. The present studies are an attempt to delineate he stratigraphy of the study area. The resistivity data in the study region shows the contrast in ground strata. The VES data should be used for groundwater exploration in different geological terrains where there is a severe scarcity of groundwater. This will further enhance the accuracy of location of groundwater potential zones in the study area.
