Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is typically used to delineate shallow subsurface structures, commonly in urban or industrial environments.
GPR uses high-frequency electromagnetic radiation which provides high resolution, making the method particularly useful in identifying near surface structures and objects. It is a non-destructive technique and suitable for:
- Location of utilities (water, power, communications)
- Testing structures and pavements
- Locating buried structures
- Studying soils and bedrock
Due to its reliability, efficiency and non-destructive nature the technique is ideal for identifying potential hazards prior to drilling or excavation operations.
