Summary:Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a rapidly growing field that has seen tremendous progress in the development of theory, technique, technology, and range of applications over the past 15-20 years. GPR is increasingly being used by a variety of scientists, researchers, engineers, consultants, and university students from many disciplines. The diversity of GPR applications includes a variety of areas such as the study of groundwater contamination, geotechnical engineering, sedimentology, glaciology, and archaeology. This breadth of usage has lead to GPR?s rapid development and pre-eminence in g.

Description
Summary:Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a rapidly developing field that has seen tremendous progress over the past 15 years. The development of GPR spans aspects of geophysical science, technology, and a wide range of scientific and engineering applications. It is the breadth of applications that has made GPR such a valuable tool in the geophysical consulting and geotechnical engineering industries, has lead to its rapid development, and inspired new areas of research in academia. The topic of GPR has gone from not even being mentioned in geophysical texts ten years ago to being the focus of hundreds of research papers and special issues of journals dedicated to the topic. The explosion of primary literature devoted to GPR technology, theory and applications, has lead to a strong demand for an up-to-date synthesis and overview of this rapidly developing field. Because there are specifics in the utilization of GPR for different applications, a review of the current state of development of the applications along with the fundamental theory is required. This book will provide sufficient detail to allow both practitioners and newcomers to the area of GPR to use it as a handbook and primary research reference.<br> <br> *Review of GPR theory and applications by leaders in the field*Up-to-date information and references*Effective handbook and primary research reference for both experienced practitioners and newcomers
