Abstract

Abstract: Electrical resistivity and induced polarization surveys have been conducted for groundwater exploration at two different sites of geological aged i.e. Carboniferous and Quaternary. This study discussed the earth materials resistivity and chargeability for metasedimentary rock and unconsolidated sediment for groundwater exploration at Kampung Jongok Batu, Dungun and Kampung Paya Rawa, Besut, respectively. For this study Terrameter LS2, cable, electrode, cable connector, battery and remote cable are tools for measurement. The spacing between electrodes is 5 m, maximum length of spread line is 400 m and using Pole-Dipole protocol. Via comparing between the resistivity and chargeability values able to provide better interpretation for ground water exploration for metasedimentary rock and unconsolidated quaternary sediment. The result shows the important of chargeability for refining the resistivity value for locating the groundwater position.
