This booklet presents insights on and instruments for the characterization of island aquifers, as illustrated by means of the instance of the coral islands of Lakshadweep in India. After an preliminary evaluate of the several coral islands, next chapters clarify key geophysical, hydrogeological and hydrochemical equipment for the review and characterization of coral island aquifers. The book’s final chapters spotlight chosen case experiences and describe genuine implementations of the tools mentioned. as well as offering the main points of knowledge assortment on every one island – a invaluable source for any destiny research on those islands – in graphical shape, the booklet proposes appropriate measures for making sure the sustainability of groundwater assets at the islands. hence, it deals a different and crucial resource of knowledge for all hydrogeologists whose paintings consists of island aquifers.

The 2D data are then inverted into layered resistivity model using inversion programmes such as RES2DINV (2005). The various sequences of measurements to build 2D proﬁle are depicted in Fig. 4. With a particular electrode arrangement one gets a layer of information. It can be seen from Fig. 4 that with a particular electrode arrangement, positioned at station 1, one gets the information at a point at depth layer 1. As the station 1 moves horizontally along the proﬁle line, the subsurface information at various points at depth level 1 is completed.
1987; Kauahikaua 1987). A simple, rapid and cost-effective mapping of sea water interface is described by Steward (1982). The method is based on application of EM method of geophysical investigation (Keller and Frischknecht 1966; Telford et al. 1976; Patra and Mallik 1980). The EM method basically measures the conductivity of the ground which is inverse of resistivity. Since the unsaturated sand, saturated sand aquifer with freshwater and saturated sand aquifer with sea water have different conductivities, it becomes possible to differentiate them.
