ARES II represents a well equipped resistivity and IP imaging system. Its advantages can be applied especially for large 2D and 3D surveys (operating up to 65,000 electrodes), for continuous survey from water level and for programable monitoring of structures. Its variability, easy field operation (without PC), feeding from a standard 12 V battery or from a generator, rich support of standard and special electrode arrays and compatibility with widespread interpretation software makes ARES useful tool for working groups and research teams.
