large-scale VES survey was conducted at the NW part of the Amynteon basin in order
to study the tectonic setting of the area. Sixty-four soundings (AB/2= 1000 m) were measured on a near-regular grid and were
processed with 1-D inversion algorithm. Several
parameterisation patterns were tested before producing the final interpretations.
Since the measured soundings centres are situated on a regular grid it was
possible to combine the 1-D interpretation results and produce pseudo-2D and 3D
are in very good agreement with the existing drilling and geological
information and reveal a relatively detailed picture of the basinís geological
background. Further the results allowed us to verify the continuation of known
faults and to obtain new structural information about the studied area. The
results indicate that despite the increased use of 2D electrical surveys, 1-D
VES measurements are still a very useful tool for large-scale applications.
