Abstract: A nowadays, geo-environmental study such as soil contamination analysis, electrical properties of soil, and geo-technical centrifuge modeling needs a characterization of soil. This will help in estimation of soil properties, mathematical and physical modeling, field investigation and some other detailed phenomenon. In this study, we used a Schlumberger method for characterization of soil in the water conduit of village Visarpani, near Mainpat block of Surguja district of Chhattisgarh, India. In this conduit, water stream climbs itself towards uphill with the slope of 450 and travels distance about 150 meters in East to West direction and after turns towards downhill in North to South direction. Experimentally calculated Schlumberger resistance used in the theoretical calculations for finding resistivity and conductivity of soil and then predicted the soil characteristics at different intervals. This study showed that towards uphill resistivity is decreasing and conductivity is increasing regarding distance intervals.
Keywords: Schlumberger Resistance, Resistivity, Density, Conductivity, Conduit.
