Ground Penetrating Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data are collected using a Sensors and Software Smart-Cart equipped with 50 or 100 MHz antennae (mostly the latter). The GPR data are filtered using a sine-tapered bandpass filter, migrated using a Stolt-migration algorithm, converted to depth, and topographically corrected using Seismic Unix software. Radar velocities varied between 0.08 and 0.05 m ns-1. 3D visualization is undertaken using Kingdom Suite software.
