Abstract

We present the practical results we got in the frame of the OTKA project K49604. At first we calculated the consequences of incorrect positioning of the electrodes for various multielectrode systems. In practice these effects were found to be negligible. The only exception is the case of rocky surface, where it is impossible to put the electrodes in the desired positions. From the tensorial geoelectric measurements around a Cistercian Monastery we concluded that areal measurements are able to provide more detailed and unambiguous anomalies than 2D profile measurements. We tested the applicability of 3-D electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) technique to detect landmines in different soil conditions and at various depths. Metallic and non-metallic landmines buried in wet and dry soils had been synthetically modeled. A geoelectrical procedure was elaborated which is able to map multidirectional fissure systems by combining geoelectrical profiling and geoelectrical azimuthal measurements. Results received by using both the socalled null-, and traditional arrays were jointly interpreted. At last we investigated the so-called standardized pricking probe (PP) surveying technique and demonstrated its usefulness in an archaeological study. The optimum PP parameters: horizontal interval, pricking depth, observable quantity and its way of presentation were optimized through field experiments.
