Investigations of horizontally and vertically oriented specimens have indicated a distinct anisotropy of intergranular permeability and apparent formation resistivity factor, although true formation factor seems virtually isotropic. It is suggested that this is the result of a preferred orientation of conducting minerals. There is, therefore, a need for caution in quantitative electrical surveys for groundwater in these formations.
