Electrical Survey

Electrical prospecting is a large group of geophysical methods for studying electromagnetic fields of various nature. The purpose of these studies is to determine the electromagnetic characteristics of the geological environment (resistance, conductivity, polarizability, etc.), which can provide valuable information about the structure of the studied site or area. By the form of electromagnetic fields, electrical prospecting can be divided into two sections: the first combine methods that investigate natural (MTS, AMTS), the second – artificial electromagnetic fields (VES, DES -VP, TDM, CAMS, etc.).

Main Tasks

  • Dipole electrical sounding (DES -VP);
  • The method of induced polarization in modifications of the median gradient (IP-MG);
  • The method of vertical electrical sounding (VES);
  • Audio (AMT) and Magnetotelluric sounding (MTS);
  • Audiomagnetotelluric sounding with a controlled source (CAMS);
  • Electromagnetic Studies;
  • Areal measurements of the VA vector (RIP).


GEOKEN uses innovative technologies for both field research and subsequent processing and interpretation of electrical survey data. Modern high-tech equipment allows you to perform accurate measurements by a large number of methods. A trained team of experienced professionals performs work in the shortest possible time and at a high level of quality.
