"Two new electrode configurations for the electrical resistivity- surveying are introduced: the A-configuration, consisting of a closely spaced pair of current electrodes separated at larger distance from the closely spaced pair of potential electrodes, and the B-configuration, in which each closely spaced pair consists both current and potential electrode. Because electrode pairs can be carried as units, the new configurations can be applied to continuous resistivity surveying more easily than the Wenner configuration....
Theoretical apparent resistivity values are derived, by Maxwell's theory of images, for the A- and B-configuration over a two layered earth using the depth probe method, and across a vertical fault plane using lateral traversing. These theoretical values are substantiated by measurements of models"--Abstract, page ii.
