20 Resistivity variations vs. time Occams 1D inverted models of Soundings at the centre of loop_2 (left) and at the centre of loop_3 (right). Blue line: first survey; red line: repeated survey. First confined aquifer A1: the resistivity increases about 13% Second confined aquifer A2: too low thickness-to-depth ratio (lack of resolution) Sixth confined aquifer: large variations of depth of its base, due to electrical equivalence and lesser data quality at the latest TDEM decay times. Additional information is needed. GNGTS - 27° Convegno Nazionale Trieste 6-8 ottobre 2008
21 Resistivity variations vs. time Electrical Conductivity (E.C) of water in the first confined aquifer measured in situ, october 2005: about 530 S/cm in the test area E.C. measured on may 2006 in the test area : 460 S/cm Observed decrease: 13%, in excellent agreement with TDEM data. from Rapti-Caputo et al., 2008
22 Conclusions Combining surface and in-hole resistivity data allows a satisfactory characterisation of a multi-aquifer sequence and of its main hydrogeological properties Combined ERT-TDEM are an efficient tool to image aquifers in an alluvial mattress TDEM has shown a sufficiently high sensitivity to resistivity variations, to be considered as a reliable tool for monitoring purposes; Aknowledgements: Research carried out with the financial support of the EC, contract LIFE04 ENV/IT/00500.

24 Based on the well known analytical relationship given by Niwas and Singhal (1981): T = KσR = KS/σ(2) where T = transmissivity, K = hydraulic conductivity, R = tρ (t and ρ are the thickness and resistivity of the aquifer layer) is the transverse resistance and S = t/ρ is the longitudinal conductance of the aquifer layer under study, the transmissivity in the whole surveyed area can be evaluated for aquifers A1, A2 and A3, bearing in mind that in areas of similar geologic setting and water quality, the product Kσ remains fairly constant.
