Determination of the share of water infiltrating into soil profile at subsurface runoff and at groundwater recharge is very important as well as ambitious mission of hydrology. Non-destructive monitoring of water movement paths in soil can be accomplished by applying of geophysical methods that are sensitive to differences of water and soil physical characteristics. The analysis of electrical resistivity tomography measurements after the application of irrigation on soil surface at horizontal and slope sites demonstrated the ability of this method to indicate water movement primarily in the start phase of infiltration before the dispersion of the front of infiltrating water. After that the sharp boundary between the environments with different physical characteristics, essential to the application of geophysical methods, cease to exist.
