Recent Examples of resistivity from the Web
To get a better idea of what lies below the property, Muhlestein used a technique called electrical resistivity mapping to get 3-D images of the property down to 30 feet below ground.
Measurements of electrical resistivity – how strongly a material opposes the flow of an electric current – helped us determine which parts of the tunnel were filled.
Those maps were combined with resistivity measurements and, later, the magnetization data from bore samples.
While no one has been able to go inside the tunnel yet, the discovery was made through a method known as electrical resistivity tomography, which creates subterranean images.
There is also a nice journal article that looks at resistivity of aluminum.
