How Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Works

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) works much like regular radar using pulses of electromagnetic radiation and reading the reflected radio signal to detect subsurface structures and objects without the need to drill.

Applications include locating buried voids/cavities, underground storage tanks, sewer lines, buried foundations, acient landfills. It can also be used to characterize bedrock, the internal structure of floors/walls, water damage in concrete, and the internal steelwork in concrete.
