Resistivity University of British Columbia

Soils and rocks are composed mostly of silicate minerals, which are essentially insulators, meaning that they have low electrical conductivity. The most common exceptions include magnetite, specular hematite, carbon, graphite, pyrite, and pyrrhotite. Therefore, conduction is largely electrolytic, and conductivity depends mainly upon:

RESISTIVITY OF ROCKS and ARCHIE'S LAW

RESISTIVITY OF ROCKS and ARCHIE'S LAW. For rocks composed of non-conducting matrix minerals and saturated with water, an empirical relationship known as Archie's Law is useful in analysis of electrical properties. Archie's Law is commonly written (2-1) where FLUID equals the electrical properties of the fluid in the pores, F is the porosity (ratio of void volume/total volume), and A and m are

C1: Electrical resistivity of different soil and rock types

325 C1.3 Electrical resistivity of multiphase materials Pure materials are rarely found in the Earth and most rocks are a mixture of two or more phases (solid, liquid or gas). Thus to calculate the overall electrical resistivity of a rock, we must consider the individual resistivities and then compute the overall electrical resistivity.

Electrical Properties ScienceDirect

Jan 01, 2015 A look on the electrical resistivity of the common rock-forming minerals (Section 8.2.1) shows that most of them are characterized by very high resistivities.Comparable behaviour is expected for dry rocks. In porous or fractured water-bearing rock, the electrolytic conductivity of the water and interactions between solid and fluid components create an enhanced electrical conductivity.
