A geophysical study of a coastal plane in Sardinia

G. Ranieri, L. Ferrero, A. Godio


The paper deals with some aspects of the planning and the interpretation of the IP and resistivity measurements in the San Priamo coastal plane (Sardinia, Italy). The plane presents some hydrogeological problems related to previous flowages and salt water intrusion from the sea. The geophysical results verified the good resolution of the joint elaboration of the IP and the resistivity soundings, in order to delineate some hydrogeological aspects of the San Priamo coastal plane. In particular, the technique was suitable for detecting salt water intrusion in a fresh acquifer, with good reliability.
