Abstract:

Seven vertical electrical sounding points (Schlumberger array) and 32 profiles of ground penetration radar were chosen to completely cover the study area in an industrial establishment site located southern of Iraq / Basrah City. Geotechnical and hydrogeological investigations were also carried out as additional tools to enhance the detection of water table, buried bodies, cavities and weak zones as well as the resulting channels underlying the considered site. Several pronounced anomalies noticed in resistivity and radar sections that indicate the existence and extension of the underneath cavities were presented and analyzed.
