Course Module: EV 201 Overview of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)


Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is widely used in geological, hydrological, archaeological, engineering and forensic investigations to detect buried objects in the subsurface. GPR has arguably the highest spatial resolution of any geophysical imaging method, approaching centimeters under the right conditions.
