What Does Ground Penetrating Radar Detect?

Ground penetrating radar (GPR)

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical locating technique that utilizes radio waves to capture subsurface information with a minimally invasive technology. The big advantage of using the GPR system is the ability to pinpoint locations for underground assets without breaking ground. GPR generates subsurface images using the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) in the 10 MHz… Read more »
