Abstract: Electrical resistivity measurements were made on the ground in the area of the proposed Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway in the vicinity of Fulton, Mississippi. The objective of the project was to determine if electrical resistivity surveys could be used to advantage in exploration required for the canal section. In general in this area a layer of fine-grained material overlies sands and gravels. In most of the area a bentonitic layer is situated at a depth from 10 to 90 ft below the surface. The conclusion was reached that an airborne resistivity survey would probably map the fine-grained top layer within classes of 0-1 m, 1-5 m, and more than 5 m thick. Clean, extensive gravel layers would also be detected.
