Shankaraiah Katla and Sathish Kumar Golla
Geophysical investigations have been carried out using Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES) technique based on electrical resistivity method; The Schlumberger electrode configuration has been utilized to study the sub surface soil classes in Mohidummeda Vagu area. The study will be useful to civil engineers and policy makers and ultimately benefit Farmers, through proposed and implemented Irrigation facilities. The study area geologically comprises of Peninsular Gneissic Complex of Archaean age. The granite gneiss is widely distributed in this area. Remote sensing and GIS application technology have been used to prepare the thematic and base maps. The geophysical investigation reveals that depth to hard rock is varying from 0 to 8 Meters.
