Floor penetrating radar (GPR) is remodeling the way in which earth scientists and engineers describe and interpret near-surface sedimentary environments within the box. as a result of contemporary advances in apparatus, GPR now presents non-stop, high-resolution information that different geophysical investigative instruments can't in achieving. GPR has confirmed invaluable in a big selection of environmental, geological, and engineering functions. integrated during this ebook are sensible guidance for information assortment and interpretation, from antennae configurations to series stratigraphy, including new advances resembling vertical radar profiles and 3-D GPR imaging for hydrocarbon reservoir modeling, designed to help new and veteran clients to get the main from GPR. Case stories during this ebook element GPR investigations in a wide range of sedimentary environments together with alluvial enthusiasts, braided rivers, spits, shorelines, sand dunes, lakes, bathrooms, and floodplains. Examples of GPR research utilized to stratigraphic correlation difficulties in Holocene, Pleistocene, and historic sediments; hydrocarbon reservoir modeling; and detection and mapping of contaminants, reservoir infilling, land mines, and fault displacements are incorporated.
