Paper Title:
Detection of Groundwater Aquifer Using Resistivity Imaging Profiling at Beriah Landfill Site, Perak, Malaysia
  Abstract

This study explains the use of resistivity imaging profiling. The Resistivity Imaging Profiling (RIP) became the one of some important techniques in order to get more information for finding out some hidden water in geophysical survey and this has been applied in Beriah Landfill Site in task of exploring the location storing underground water. Two dimensional geoelectrical imaging has been applied for this study. The method can be used for map the distribution of resistivity for the subsurface materials layer. The principle goals of this survey are to define the depth of aquifer layers from the subsoil, the water table and the depth of bedrock as well as suitable site for well. The imaging method was used in this study to map the subsurface soil and groundwater in and around the landfill area that includes six resistivity line. Surveys were conducted using SAS4000 resistivity meter and ABEM LUND electrode and the measured resistivity profiles were interpreted with 2-D resistivity inversion programme (RES2DINV) software presented by two dimensions which is axis-x represent as a length on the ground surface while axis-y referred to the depth of the subsurface in meter.
