Abstract : Different electrode materials for rock contacting purposes were tested and their efficiencies were compared. For a wattless collection of the potentials of the two inner points of a Wenner four-point arrangement impedance transformers with very high input resistance and low capacitance were applied. Earthing and screening problems were investigated. Measurements were conducted in a frequency range of 0.01 ... 10,000 Hz, the current density in the centerpoint of the arrangement amounted to j = 10 to the minus 10 power A/cm sq. (Author)
