SHEVNIN, Vladimir; DELGADO-RODRIGUEZ, Omar; MOUSATOV, Aleksandr y RYJOV, Albert. Estimation of hydraulic conductivity on clay content in soil determined from resistivity data. Geofís. Intl [online]. 2006, vol.45, n.3, pp. 195-207. ISSN 0016-7169.
The influence of clay content in sandy and clayey soils on hydraulic conductivity (filtration coefficient) is considered. A review of published experimental data on the relationship of hydraulic conductivity with soil lithology and grain size, as dependent on clay content is presented. Theoretical calculations include clay content. Experimental and calculated data agree, and several approximation formulas for filtration coefficient vs clay content are presented. Clay content in soil is estimated from electric resistivity data obtained from 2D VES interpretation. A two-step method is proposed, the first step including clay content calculating from soil resistivity and groundwater salinity, and the second step including filtration coefficient estimating from clay content. Two applications are presented.
