Work carried out in several volcanic areas in Armenia has led to a combination of geophysical methods for hydrogeological problems. Prospecting of interlava and sublava water flows is done by electrical profiling and vertical electrical sounding. When mapping the relief of sublava water-resisting rocks, the electrical sounding (ES) method is widely used. This is based on the evaluation of lava resistivity. The method discussed allows to determine the most probable value of this parameter, by using statistical methods.
