Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground Penetrating Radar is capable of detecting multiple buried layers at depth by passing an electromagnetic pulse into the ground, which reflects off underlying buried layers. The location and depth of each reflection creates profiles and slices (similar to archaeological sections or plans) of the underlying archaeology. Ground Penetrating Radar can be used in rural environments as well as urban areas covered by tarmac or concrete and is particularly suited for mapping souterrains, walls, voids/cavities and structural features.
