potential electrode

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An electrode used as a ground contact in a voltage-measuring circuit. In electrical-resistivity and induced-polarization surveying, two potential electrodes are used, with a variety of possible electrode configurations; in spontaneous potential measurements non-polarizable (e.g. porous pot) electrodes are commonly used.
