   Geoelectrical section on a line West-East along highway Sevastopol-Yalta (Foros area, Crimea). The landslide's body (piquets 300-500) is combined by terrigene rocks and has resistivity more than 20 Ohmm. Underlying trias-jurassic argillite rocks have resistivity less than 5 Ohmm. The volume of the slide's body is 200*400*40 cubic metres. Researches were carried out with 25m *25m antennas.

    TEM-FAST 48 complex has been applied for a slide object research in Baku (Azerbaidjan, April 2000). 50 soundings with antenna of 25m*25m size has been used when memorial complex and the slide body investigation and 18 soundings of 50m*50m along regional profile: Botanic garden-Memorial complex-landslide-prospect Neftyanikov. The results of interpretation presented as geoelectrical sections along two profiles (regional and West-East) crossing the landslide shown in the figures 1,2. The blocks of rock in the sections indexed by value of specific electrical resistivity (Ohm-m) are marked with a colour: from red - for low resistance, up to dark blue - for high.

The body of a landslide has average resistivity 24-36 Ohm-m and submitted by friable sand-clay formations with residual blocks of destroyed limestone rocks. The first slide surface coincides with a roof of clay rocks and has resistivity from 8 up to 10 Ohm-m. The low resistivity testifies to presence of water solutions in rocks. Second and third slide's surface coincided with the layers of dense clay having the resistivity 5-6 Ohm-m lay below to depth ~ 0.3 -m. In the top part of the memorial increase of the rock's resistivity up to 100 Ohm-m which corresponds to the undefeated screening the limestone layer open by a borehole No 1 (area of the television center) is observed. Bedding of the landstones is subhorizontal, while clay bottom rock have rather steep inclination to east.
