  • Outline

  • 1. Introduction

  • Geology

  • Previous Measurements

  • 2. Processing

  • 3. Results

  • 4. Conclusions


Geology

  • valley incised into Tertiary

  • not visible at surface

  • Quaternary filling: gravel, sand, clay

  • Lauenburg Clay between 50-70 m depth

  • important for groundwater supply

  • depth up to 400 m, width 1-2 km, length approx. 40 km


Previous Measurements

  • Airborne Electromagnetic Measurements (AEM)

  • apparent resistivity map of the frequency 1830 Hz

  • max. depth of 150 m

  • salt water intrusions near the coast at shallow depth

  • glacial valley visible due to clay

  • Geest shows high resistivity

Siemon et al., 2001, Identification of salt water Intrusions and Coastal Aquifers Using the BGR Helicopter-borne Geophysical System, SWICA, Morocco


Previous Measurements

BurVal Working Group: Kirsch et al., 2006, Groundwater resources in buried valleys - a challenge for geosciences

  • seismics sees boundary of valley

  • AEM (full image) and Skytem (columns) results

  • depth limited due to clay layer => DC measurements

  • complete electric image of subsurface


Measuring area

  • 20 receiver stations (red) distances between 500 and 1000 m

  • 10 transmitter stations (black - E1-E10)

  • area of 6 km2

  • red lines mark buried valley


Station layout and current injection

  • central electrode + 3 directions

  • 75 m dipole length

  • 3 channel MT transient recorder Geolore, sampling rate 8 Hz

  • injected current 1 to 40 A

  • square-wave signal of 9 s period

  • injection time: 20 min


Signalprocessing

  • removal of anthropogenic and long-periodic noise


Inversion

  • inversion with FD code DC3dInvRes (Günther, 2004)

  • homogeneous model, 8 layers: 0-20m, …, 600-800 m

  • individual weighting of data by errors


  • 1st layer: medium r, 2nd-5th: higher r, 6-8th: medium-low r

  • layers 5-6: low resistivity on right hand side


  • clay makes valley visible

  • clear differentiation between salt water and valley


  • 3D subsurface model with electrode positions

  • dimensions: 4000 x 3000 x 800 m


  • cut parallel to seismic profile => 2D section


clay layer

sand

Base of Quaternary

Tertiary clay and salt water

salt water

  • able to identify clay layer

  • right hand side: high salt water level

  • sand with freshwater on left hand side

  • transition zone under buried valley

salt water


Conclusions

  • 3D resistivity image by large-scale DC dipole-dipole experiment

  • gap between seismics and EM closed

  • clear differentiation between valley and salt water

  • probably limited infiltration of salt water into valley

  • different hydraulic conductivities prevent accumulation of salt water in the valley
