Ground penetrating radar (GPR)

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. It uses electromagnetic radiation and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. GPR can be used in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. It can detect objects, changes in material, and voids and cracks.
