What Can Ground Penetrating Radar Do For You?
GPR technology can help determine the location and depth of:
*pipes – plastic, poly, pvc
*water mains – all types, including asbestos, blue brut
*fire main valves
*fibre optic cables
*buried manhole covers
*underground tanks and pits
Ground penetrating radar is a non-destrutive geo-physical method which uses radar pulses to create a 'map' of shallow subsurface features (down to 6 metres approximately)
The data collected from the radar sweeping across the surface is used to create a view of the subsurface.
Unfortunately, some conditions have a negative impact on GPR's effectiveness. High-conductivity (e.g. high moisture content) materials and heterogeneous conditions
(e.g. rocky soils) will reduce its performance.
For example, whilst dry sandy soils will allow radar penetration to 6 metres approximately, wet clay soils and salt-contaminated soils can reduce the depth to less
than one metre. Rocky soils can cause radar signal scattering.
