Electrical resistivity surveying is a procedure designed to measure the resistance of sub-surface materials from ground surface tests ... Measurement of resistance is made using four equally-spaced electrodes. The apparent resistivity is calculated from the potential drop, the applied current and the electrode spacing.

Le relevé de la résistivité électrique est une méthode conçue pour mesurer la résistance des formations souterraines à partir d'essais à la surface du sol. (...) La mesure de la résistance est obtenue à l'aide de quatre électrodes équidistants. La chute de potentiel, le courant appliqué et l'espacement des électrodes, permettent de calculer la résistivité apparente.
