- 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.
