This work aims to be a further contribution to the numerous studies that have been carried out under the prospecting of groundwater in the Cape Verde archipelago ( ). The application of the method has aimed to evaluate acquisition geometry in volcanic environments, to maximize and contribute to the geological, structural and hydrogeological interpretation of the area of research, and evaluation of the model of distribution of Resistivitys with lithologies distribution model (probing holes). The spatial distribution of the surveys was chosen in such a way as to coincide with the places where this drilling was effected. The work carried out was carried out in the locality of Ribeirão do Chiqueiro, the Santiago Island, where electromagnetic probes were performed 1D using the TEM-FAST. For visualization and interpretation of the geophysical models and the data of the subsurface surveys, they were integrated with high resolution aerial image.
