Resistivity Profiling – BC Cribs – Hanford Site

Resistivity profile image of a nitrate plume at the Hanford Site. The profile was acquired over a historical disposal trench, where about one million gallons of nitrate waste laden with radioactive elements was disposed to the ground. The data were collected using the SuperSting R8 with a pole-pole array, 6ft electrode separation, and modeled with RES2DINVx64. The data show a strong correlation between the resistivity low and nitrate high from well C4191, at depths ranging from 50 to 150ft below ground surface.
