electrode configuration (electrode array) A geometrical pattern of electrodes used in electrical sounding, constant-separation traversing, and induced polarization surveys. Usual configurations comprise two current electrodes and two potential electrodes whose separations are known and defined by a geometric factor. Common configurations include the dipole-dipole, Schlumberger, square, and Wenner arrays.
