The self-potential (SP) method is a passive geophysical method based on the natural occurrence of electrical fields on the Earth’s surface. Combined with other geophysical methods, SP surveys are especially useful for localizing and quantifying groundwater flows and pollutant plume spreading, and estimating pertinent hydraulic properties of aquifers (water table, hydraulic conductivity). Laboratory experiments have shown that the involved coupling coefficients mainly depend on the fluid… CONTINUE READING
