Abstract: GPR for Environmental Site Investigation: The Importance of Previous HitPolarizationNext Hit

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical technique that uses electromagnetic waves in the radio frequency range to investigate geologic, engineering and hydrogeologic features. Radar waves are produced by a transmit antenna, scattered from interfaces between media having contrasting intrinsic impedances, and recorded by a receive antenna. Electromagnetic waves can be described by the orientation of their electric and Previous HitmagneticNext Hit fields, and the direction of propagation. Previous HitPolarizationTop refers to the magnitude and orientation of the electric field as a function of time and space.
