*Underground tanks and pits
How does Ground Penetrating Radar work?
Ground penetrating radar is a non-destructive geo-physical method that uses radar pulses to 'map' a picture of shallow subsurface features (down to approximately 6 metres). The data collected from the radar sweeping across the surface is collected to create a view of the subsurface.
What can impact or limit the technology?
Some conditions have a negative impact on GPR performance. High-conductivity (e.g. high moisture content) materials and heterogeneous conditions (e.g. rocky soils) will lessen its effectiveness. For example, while dry sandy soils will allow radar penetration to approximately 6 metres, wet clay soils and salt-contaminated soils can reduce the depth to under 1 metre. Rocky soils can cause radar signal scattering.
