Abstract

A

A particular methodology adapted to crystalline formations with a thin weathered zone was developed for a village hydrological project, in Benin. A combination of electrical profiles, Schlumberger and square arrays, was able to locate the most fractured zones in the basement. We present some results obtained from theoretical models as well as from field data.

The suggested methodology uses both measurements of resistivity and anisotropy. Strong anisotropy and low resistivity indicate the most productive hydrogeological areas.
