Drilling Water Exploration

- May 15, 2019-

The China Geological Survey carried out the project “Exploration of drinking groundwater for humans and animals in severely water-deficient areas in the west”. A large number of experimental studies have been carried out in the Tarim Basin, the Yinchuan Plain, the Hexi Corridor, the Ordos Basin, and the Qaidam Basin using high-frequency geomagnetic methods, high-density electrical methods, and DC resistivity sounding methods.

After the process of obtaining the true resistivity of the formation, the selection of the pore parameters, the determination of the lithology coefficient and the pore index, the relationship between the electrical parameters and the groundwater salinity was found:
