In this study we present the prediction of hydraulic permeability (k) from time-domain spectral induced polarization (IP) data, measured in boreholes and along 2D surface profiles. The borehole data were collected with the El-log technique, which provides undisturbed “while drilling” measurements of the direct current (DC) resistivity, time-domain IP data and gamma radiation. Data were measured on unconsolidated formations at a landfill site in South Denmark, in three boreholes and along 16 2D profiles. DC and full-decay IP data were inverted in terms of the BIC re-parameterization of the Cole-Cole model, which present smaller parameter correlations and disentangles bulk and surface conduction. Permeability values were computed from bulk conductivity and the maximum imaginary conductivity, using the empirically-derived formulae presented in a recent study without any calibration. The IP-derived k estimates were compared to those estimated using grain size analysis and slug tests, for a total of 157 comparisons. A good correlation, on average within one decade, was found between the k estimates over four orders of magnitude, with similar depth-trends. In conclusion, IP can be reliably used for estimating hydraulic permeability on unconsolidated formations at the field scale, using the relations found in the laboratory without any further calibration.
