Ground Penetrating Radar Theory and Applications by Harry M. Jol

By Harry M. Jol

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a swiftly constructing box that has noticeable great growth over the last 15 years. the advance of GPR spans points of geophysical technological know-how, know-how, and quite a lot of medical and engineering functions. it's the breadth of functions that has made GPR one of these invaluable software within the geophysical consulting and geotechnical engineering industries, has result in its fast improvement, and encouraged new components of study in academia. the subject of GPR has long gone from no longer even being pointed out in geophysical texts ten years in the past to being the point of interest of hundreds and hundreds of analysis papers and unique problems with journals devoted to the subject. The explosion of basic literature dedicated to GPR expertise, conception and purposes, has result in a powerful call for for an up to date synthesis and review of this speedily constructing box. simply because there are specifics within the usage of GPR for various functions, a assessment of the present country of improvement of the purposes in addition to the basic thought is needed. This booklet will supply adequate aspect to permit either practitioners and beginners to the world of GPR to exploit it as a instruction manual and first examine reference.

*Review of GPR idea and purposes through leaders within the field
*Up-to-date details and references
*Effective instruction manual and first study reference for either skilled practitioners and newcomers
