potential electrode . 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 electrodes (e.g. porous pot electrodes) are commonly used.
