Application of the conductivity methods to select zones with variable filtration parameters around the base of river levee.
A b s t r a c t. The need to continuously monitor the flood embankment is necessary to introduce the measurement methods which give quick results in crisis situations. The protection of embankments as well as the prevention from floods are not only associated with the examination of the body river levee. Experience suggests that one of the problems involves the unknown geotechnical conditions of the levee base. Unfortunately, point geotechnical surveys carried out with a big measurement step were not able to fully identify the lithology variation over larger areas. This is caused by the high cost of drilling shallow wells. The application of non-invasive geophysical methods allows the completion of geotechnical research, and supplies additional information about the variability of geological medium. The structure in the area of the former river beds creates favorable conditions for carrying out geophysical surveys dependent on the variability of geoelectrical properties of rocks. This problem is solved by the use of conductivity method on the 100 m long part of the flood bank. This is recommended for quick and non-invasive measurements. A complex interpretation of geotechnical, hydrogeological and geophysical data provided information about the variability of geoelectrical parameters over this area and therefore made it possible to identify areas prone for greater filtration during high water levels.
