Frequency-resonance principle, mobile geoelectric technology: new paradigm of geophysical investigations

© Levashov S.P., Yakymchuk N.A., Korchagin I.N.

The results of the practical application of non-classical geoelectric methods of forming a short-pulsed field (FSPEF) and vertical electric-resonance sounding (VERS) for various geological and geophysical problems of exploratory character solving are discussed. The experimental results show that the areal survey by FSPEF method allows to detect and map operativly the anomalous zones of the "oil", "gas", "aquifer", "gold", "uranium" type etc. The depth of lying and thicknesses of anomalous polarized layers of the appropriate type are determined with high accuracy by VERS sounding. Field works of such character are often executed very quickly and easily. The FSPEF and VERS methods make a significant contribution into emergence of a new paradigm of geophysical investigation, in which the "direct" searching for a specific physical matter are realized: gas, oil, gas hydrates, water, metallic minerals and rocks (gold, platinum, silver, zinc, uranium, diamonds, kimberlites, etc.). The effectiveness of geophysical methods, based on the principles of this paradigm, is much higher than traditional ones.
