We present laboratory measurements of electrical resistivity anisotropy from a suite of 37 carbonate samples. These laboratory results show the occurrence of resistivity anisotropy in lithologies ranging from biomicritic limestone to hydrothermal dolomite. Our results also suggest that the anisotropy we observe on the centimetric scale of our samples is an intrinsic property of the rock resulting from fabric scale heterogeneity as apposed to micro-fracturing.
