 / Attendance Wed, 20 Apr, 17:30–19:00  / Hall A
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. GPR has many applications in Earth sciences:
-Geophysical Survey (bedrock and water table profiling, soil and aggregate surveys, geotechnical mapping, sedimentological studies, river and lake bottom profiling, mineral exploration);
-Mapping underground structures (locating underground utilities, pipes, storage tanks and drums for repairs, upgrades, or removals),
-Environmental assessment (delineating landfills, detecting buried USTs and drums, hazardous waste site assessment, pollution assessments),
- Archaeology (mapping archaeological features and cemeteries);
This session covers all these issues and includes other GPR Applications that can be found in disciplines like: Seismology, Planetary Sciences, Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Palaeontology and Geomorphology. We encourage scientists to submit their works, either oral communications or posters.
