The aim of this research is to verify the effectiveness of the electrical resistivity method in the study and monitoring of the pollutant dispersion and migration in the soil. In this particular study, Diesel has been used as the detection pollutant and a laboratory model was created in a tank comprised of a bottom clay layer covered by a sandy layer. Two narrow sectors separated by a permeable screen was included to allow permanent groundwater flow through the soil. In addiction, a permeable reactive barrier was made in the model with an oxygen release compound (i.e. ORC-Advanced by Regenesis®). When the model was used in the laboratory a mini electrical resistivity array was used to monitor the electrical resistivity properties that the media displayed.
