Use in Geothermal Exploration
  • "See also Direct-Current Resistivity Survey<br><br> The dipole-dipole resistivity survey has been applied towards reservoir delineation as well as resistivity monitoring of a producing geothermal field.

The dipole-dipole resistivity survey has been applied towards reservoir delineation as well as resistivity monitoring of a producing geothermal field. Resistivity monitoring may be sensitive to fluid extraction from the reservoir, reinjection of cooler fluids, or porosity reduction resulting from calcite precipitation. [1]

 
Field Procedures
The given value was not understood.
The dipole-dipole electrode array consists of two sets of electrodes, the current (source) and potential (receiver) electrodes. A dipole is a paired electrode set with the electrodes located relatively close to one another; if the electrode pair is widely spaced it is referred to as a bipole.[2] The convention for a dipole-dipole electrode array is to maintain an equal distance for both the current and the potential electrodes (spacing = a), with the distance between the current and potential electrodes as an integer multiple of a.[3] The electrodes do not need to be located along a common survey line. [4]

A primary advantage of the dipole-dipole electrode array is the ease of deployment in the field due to shorter wire lengths. However, a large generator may be needed to transmit a greater current magnitude for the measurement, especially for deep soundings. [5][2]
