Abstract

Resistivity measurements are reported for the glaciated area near Antigo, Wis., to locate buried sand and gravel deposits in the glacial drift, which might be developed as aquifers, and to determine depths to the pre-Cambrian bedrock. The results of the resistivity study are presented both as cross sections and as contour maps. The apparent resistivity curves, their interpretation in terms of the thickness and character of the geological materials, as well logs of the area are given. On the basis of the study a number of sites were selected that would be suitable for drilling water-supply wells, no drilling has been done on the sites selected.
