A geoelectrical resistivity survey was carried out in the existing Kaffrein dam site, near the Dead Sea, Jordan, in order to investigate channel seepage and the hydrological conditions of the alluvial deposits in the upstream as well as downstream areas of the dam. The data from the electrical resistivity survey were interpreted by the classical curve matching and computer modelling techniques. Fifteen vertical electrical sounding (VES), utilising the Schlumberger array, Abem Terrameter Sas 300 B and Sas 2000 booster, were conducted in the area. The lengths of these soundings extend up to 800 m. This study demonstrates the usefulness of electrical resistivity measurements in detecting seepage zones under the dams.

Abstract

A geoelectrical resistivity survey was carried out in the existing Kaffrein dam site, near the Dead Sea, Jordan, in order to investigate channel seepage and the hydrological conditions of the alluvial deposits in the upstream as well as downstream areas of the dam. The data from the electrical resistivity survey were interpreted by the classical curve matching and computer modelling techniques. Fifteen vertical electrical sounding (VES), utilising the Schlumberger array, Abem Terrameter Sas 300 B and Sas 2000 booster, were conducted in the area. The lengths of these soundings extend up to 800 m. This study demonstrates the usefulness of electrical resistivity measurements in detecting seepage zones under the dams.
