INTERPRETATION OF GEOELECTRICAL DATA OF THE FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, YOLA, NIGERIA
Department of Geology, P.M.B. Federal University of Technology, Yola, Nigeria
Fifty Schlumberger vertical electrical soundings (VES) carried out in the Federal University of Technology, Yola, Nigeria, have been interpreted. The data were first interpreted using conventional partial curve-matching techniques in order to obtain the initial model param-eters. The model parameters obtained were used as an input into an optimizing computer program utilized for this study. Information from boreholes were incorporated to enhance and obtain realistic geologic models in the study area. The results obtained from the interpretation revealed three geoelectric layers. The depth to aquifer in the study area is 50 m. The transmissivity and hydraulic conductivity values compare well with the aquifer characteristics in the study area.
