Geophysical and Geochemical Data to Map Ground-Water Contamination-Utah County, Utah

Alvin K. Benson, Kelly L. Payne, Melissa A. Stubben

Abstract

Geophysical methods can be helpful in mapping areas of contaminated soil and ground wtaer. Electrical Previous HitresistivityNext Hit and very low frequency electromagnetic induction surveys were carried out at a site of shallow hydrocarbon contamination in Utah County, Utah. Previously installed monitoring wells facilitated analysis of water chemistry to enhance interpretation of the geophysical data. The electrical Previous HitresistivityNext Hit and very low frequency electromagnetic data correlate well and were used to help map the contaminant plume which was delineated as an area of high Previous HitapparentTop and interval resistivities.
