FAQ

What does GPR stand for?
GPR is the acronym for Ground Penetrating Radar, also known as Georadar, Ground Penetration Radar, or Ground Probing Radar.

What is GPR?
GPR is a compact device that scans the subsurface in a non-destructive way. It can penetrate the surface from a few cm down to tens or hundreds of meters, based on soil conditions and antenna characteristics.

How does GPR work?
GPR emits electromagnetic (EM) waves to the subsurface and calculates the time these waves need to travel through the various subsurface material and get back to the GPR receiver. This two-way travel-time, along with a few other parameters such as the dielectric, provide the user an estimate of the target depth.

What applications does GPR cover?
GPR is a very useful tool in a variety of applications. Most popular uses of GPR are the non-destructive testing and mapping of objects inside the concrete, such as rebars, pipes, ducts, and cables. Other applications are infrastructure assessment (bridge decks, roads), utility location, archaeology, forensics, environmental studies (mapping contaminants), shallow geology and geophysics, mine exploration and safety, transportation (pavement thickness and density, ballast fouling), agriculture, military (UXO), sedimentology, glaciology, quarrying, space exploration.
