Abstract

The results of near-surface Direct Current surveys have been interpreted with the analysis of 1-D and 2-D resistivity datasets and sediments' and pore fluids electrical properties, in order to obtain 3-D models of sand-gravel and silt-clay alluvial bodies of an area of the Po plain south of Milan (Italy). The definition of the hierarchical scales of the sedimentary bodies permits the integration between hydro-and electro-stratigraphy and to gain a valid representation of heterogeneities of alluvial aquifers necessary for a reliable conceptualization of the groundwater reservoirs needed for the mathematical modelling of flow and transport processes.
