DC Resistivity Survey (Schlumberger Array)

The Schlumberger array is a type of electrode configuration for a DC resistivity survey and is defined by its electrode array geometry.[1]

Wikipedia Definition

An electrode array is a configuration of electrodes used for measuring either an electric current or voltage. Some electrode arrays can operate in a bidirectional fashion, in that they can also be used to provide a stimulating pattern of electric current or voltage. Common arrays include:
  • Schlumberger (Wenner)
  • Wenner alpha
  • Wenner beta
  • Wenner gamma
  • Pole-pole
  • Dipole-dipole
  • Pole-dipole
  • Equatorial dipole-dipole, An electrode array is a configuration of electrodes used for measuring either an electric current or voltage.
