Electromagnetic terrain conductivity surveys were conducted at four animal waste lagoon sites in South Carolina in an effort to delineate groundwater contamination from animal waste lagoon leachate. A soil electrical conductivity model was developed and evaluated. The effects of subsurface conditions on EM response and EM survey interpretation were studied. The data suggest that terrain conductivity can be a very useful technique in defining groundwater pollution.
