Solving the problems of studying the geoecological environment requires non-standard approaches to the field work methodology, processing and interpretation of geophysical research materials, the application of new methods and techniques. Therefore, the special technique has been developed for the geophysical mapping of man-made contaminated territories. The proposed technique is based on the principle of the horizon-oriented analysis of the upper part of profile. The complex of methods of environmental geophysics most often included: vertical microelectrical sounding (MES), microelectrical profiling, and a variety of surveys such as georadar, oxidation-reduction potentials, gas, radium survey, radiometric (gamma and beta), and micromagnetic methods. Consequently, a rational set of geophysical methods depends on the specific natural and man-made conditions and the tasks in hand. Microelectrical soundings are form the mainstay of chosen complex. As an example of the successful application of the developed technology based on microelectrical sounding, we сould present the results of micro-geophysical investigations on the study of man-made pollution in the Yagotinsky district of the Kyiv region. Key words: geoecological environment, microelectrical sounding, environmental geophysics, soil contamination, resistance
