induced polarization (IP, induced potential, over-voltage, interfacial polarization) An exploration method which uses either the decay of an excitation voltage (time-domain method) or variations in the Earth's resistivity at two different but low frequencies (frequency-domain method). A variety of different electrode configurations can be used. See also CHARGEABILITY.
