In order to collect electrical resistivity tomography data, an IRIS Instrument Syscal R1 Plus resistivity-meter was used in conjunction with a multicore-based connection device capable of concurrently connecting up to 32 electrodes spaced 5 m apart. As a result, the overall length of each ERT profile was 155 m. Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) survey used a Wenner alpha array configuration for electrical resistivity data acquisition. The application of the Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) Method, in conjunction with the BERT python-based inversion approach, leads to the development of a dependable methodology for fault identification.and aquifer characterization in a cristalline rock area of Man (Côte d'Ivoire).
