Environmental Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar

Since ground penetrating radar (GPR) gives scientists a picture of what’s beneath the Earth’s surface, this technology can play a valuable role in protecting our environment for future generations. One of the most important applications of ground penetrating radar is the location of hazards that could potentially cause detrimental effects on the environment and vulnerable species of plants and animals.

With regards to the environment, GPR can:

    • Map the extent of contaminant plumes
    • Determine direction of contaminant migration
    • Assess landfill limits
    • Find buried drums


For most environmental applications, US Radar recommends either the GPRover Mapping System or the Quantum Imager Triple Frequency Radar system due to their versatility.
