Abstract: Geophysical prospecting for groundwater in crystalline regions is a difficult task due to the presence of faults, fractures and lateral variations of resistivity in the overburden. To analyze the influence of bidimensional (2D) variation of resistivity on Schlumberger vertical electrical soundings several layer models were studied containing 2D vertical and dipping structures. These 2D structures are located in the alteration mantle at varying distances from the sounding position. The numerical modeling was done employing the finite element method using an algorithm developed for this purpose (EGSLIB/SEV2D). The results of simulation show that the Sclumberger vertical electrical sounding technique over bidimensional media is not very effective as in sedimentry and alluvial regions due to the phenomenon of ambiguity which complicates the interpretation of the curves. Among the geophysical methods used for hydrogeological investigation, electroresistivity is simplest, economical and efficient. 32 Schlumberger vertical electrical soundings and several kms of dipole-dipole profiling were realized in the Ourilândia do Norte town in order to help locate sites for tube-wells. The apparent resistivity curves were treated and processed considering an isotropic, homogeneous, horizontal layers model, using algorithm EGSLIB/SEV1D and EGSLIB/SEV1DINV program. This permitted to establish approximate geoelectrical models for the subsurface geology of the town. Two distinct geological zones could be recognized based on interpreted geoelectric sections and available geological information. One of the zones is formed by soil/embankment followed by a soil horizon containing sandy sediments over a sandyclay layer and finally the bedrock. This geological sequence predominated in the town. The other zone is formed by soil/embankment overlying a sandyclay bed which is underlain by granitoids type Rio Maria. This second zone is limited in the central part of the town. The sand and sandyclay stratum posses good potential for water storing.
