Table 1 Resistivity of various types of water (Saad et al. 2012)

From: Groundwater aquifer detection using the electrical resistivity method at Ito Campus, Kyushu University (Fukuoka, Japan)

Type of water Resistivity in Ω m
Meteoric water 30–1000
Surface water in areas of sedimentary rock 10–100
Groundwater in areas of igneous rock 30–150
Seawater \(\approx\) 0.20
Groundwater in areas of sedimentary rock > 1
