Electrical Properties of Rocks and Minerals Taylor

2021-3-23  The fact that many rocks and minerals are not characterized by a specific value for the various electrical properties even under standard conditions makes it difficult to tabulate a meaningful set of numbers for these properties.

Electrical Properties of Rocks and Minerals

ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY (1) Electrolytic conductors.—The electrical conductivity of rocks and soils in place is generally due almost entirely to the moisture content.With some exceptions, the solid minerals which constitute the rock or soil are good insulators. Thus, the conductivity is not an essential property of the rock or rock type; it depends not only upon the capacity of the rock to

INTRODUCTION. The electrical properties of a material define its behavior when an electric field is applied. The two principal electrical properties are the dielectric constant, which is a measure of the electrical polarization that takes place when an electric field is applied, and the conductivity, which is a measure of the conduction current developed by an electric field.

Moreover, the development of geophysical methods (in particular, electrical methods) is necessitating a multiple approach to the study of the physical properties of rocks and minerals. In connection with problems now appearing, the physical properties of rocks must be studied in the laboratory under var­ ious thermodynamic conditions.

Electrical properties. The electrical nature of a material is characterized by its conductivity (or, inversely, its resistivity) and its dielectric constant, and coefficients that indicate the rates of change of these with temperature, frequency at which measurement is made, and so on.For rocks with a range of chemical composition as well as variable physical properties of porosity and fluid

Electrical Properties of Crustal and Mantle Rocks A

The electrical properties of rocks and minerals are controlled by thermodynamic parameters like pressure and temperature and by the chemistry of the medium in which the charge carriers move. Four different charge transport processes can be distinguished. Electrolytic conduction in fluid saturated porous rocks depends on petrophysical properties, such as porosity, permeability and connectivity

Numerous laboratory and field experiments suggest that electrical properties of fractured rocks may provide critical information regarding the topological properties of the underlying fracture networks. However, a lack of numerical studies dedicated to realistic fractured media prevents us from assessing, in a systematic manner, the relationships between electrical and topological properties
