An innovative non-invasive procedure for the preliminary characterization of shallow subsurface soil

The estimation of shallow subsurface soil properties, such as fine content and hydraulic conductivity,
is a key aspect in many engineering geology applications. When large areas have to be investigated,
alternative and reliable procedures to common from point-wise investigations through
drilling or laboratory tests are required to overcome time and cost limitations.
In this paper, a non-invasive procedure for the fine content estimation and the assessment of hydraulic
conductivity is proposed and applied to two different case studies: a small earth dam and a
river embankment. Electrical and seismic properties were used for the 2D imaging of hydro-geotechnical
characteristics and the results compared with independent investigations. The results show
the effectiveness of the proposed procedure, highlighting its potentialities and future applications.

CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title.
CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2016-2019) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2016 —19).
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
2019: 1.307
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)
2019: o.657
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal's impact.
