Spanish term or phrase: tomografia eléctrica
Is there a specific terminologia para tomografia eléctrica in this context please?

Evaluar la situación del Vertedero respecto a la presencia de niveles y bolsas de lixiviados dentro de la masa de residuos del Vertedero, que puedan comprometer la estabilidad del conjunto mediante la utilización de tomografia eléctrica.

Thank you for any help

electrical resistivity tomography/imaging
Explanation:
"La Tomografía Eléctrica o ERT (Electrical Resistivity Tomography) es una técnica geofísica para el estudio del subsuelo que consiste en determinar, con alta resolución espacial (tanto horizontal como vertical), la distribución de la resistividad a partir de un número muy elevado de medidas realizadas en forma automática desde la superficie del terreno."

There appears to be a comma missing after "conjunto", which changes the whole meaning of the sentence.

"Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) or electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) is a geophysical technique for imaging sub-surface structures from electrical resistivity measurements made at the surface, or by electrodes in one or more boreholes."
