    these factors are known to directly or indirectly correlate with others. The resistivity of dry sand is of the order of 105 Ωm whereas the resistivity of wet sand is of the order of 10 Ωm. This is because natural pore water has a higher resistivity than that of solids and air. For a soil with relatively low resistivity, the electric current flows in

    Oct 14, 2010 Oct 14, 2010 Resistivity can vary from 105 Ωm in dry sand to 10 Ωm in wet sand (Fukue et al. 1999). The electrical properties of clay are more complicated in terms of fabric, because the diffuse double layer formed on and between the particles may show different conductivity from the free pore water (Jackson et al. 1978 )
