    The combination of layer resistivity and thickness in the so-called Dar Zarrouk parameters S and T may be of direct use in aquifer protection studies and for the evaluation of hydrologic properties of aquifers.The protective capacity of a clayey aquifer overburden is proportional to its longitudinal unit conductance S which, in terms of aquifer protection, gets a dimension of time (e.g. infiltration time). Aquifer storage in fissured reservoirs may be determined from differential conductance measurements (ΔS). Combination of the expression for ΔS with an empirical expression for electric conduction in fissured media yields a simple formula for water content per unit surface area. Both principles and possible developments are illustrated for a set of carboniferous limestone basins.
