constant-separation traversing (CST) An electrical technique in which an electrode array (commonly a Wenner or dipole–dipole array) is moved along a survey line, keeping the electrode separations constant. Similar survey techniques are used in electromagnetic surveying, where a dual-coil method is employed; in this case constant coil separations used.
