Geophysical Applications for Ground Penetrating Radar

Correctly assessing ground penetrating radar data for geophysical purposes often relies on low frequency antenna. Low frequency antennas enable greater depth penetration to determine bedrock compositions beneath the soil.

To create more meaningful datasets, geophysical professionals require GPS integration with their locating systems. To help streamline this process, all US Radar products can integrate with major GPS providers.

Here is an in-depth look at how US radar systems can aid you in geophysical applications:

Strata Layers

Ground penetrating radar aids in the identification of these different rock and soil formations. GPR data can also show how deep into the Earth these layers reach and give clues of what forces have shaped them.

Bedrock

Ground penetrating radar helps scientists determine the depth of bedrock they wish to study. Identifying bedrock has many implications, not just for natural sciences but also civil engineering. Bedrock is critical for the construction of safe, stable structures.

Groundwater

GPR can be instrumental in the management of groundwater. Groundwater is located beneath the surface of the Earth and is contained in porous soil as well as cracks in rocks. Groundwater is important because it has many uses for modern life including agriculture, industry, and as a water supply for municipalities. Ground penetrating radar can help locate groundwater sources.

GPR Can Also Be Used to Locate:

  • Density changes
  • Fill placement
  • Boulders and rocks
  • Root mass
  • Disturbed soil
  • Buried wood

US Radar's 100 Series Geotechnical System and Q25 series offer the greatest depth penetration for geophysical purposes.
