Ground Probing Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been around for many years now; it was first used in around 1956 when experiments were conducted to detect the water table.
Over the years GPR has advanced with huge strides and is now a proven non-invasive sub-surface imaging technique. GPR is very good at determining the shape, depth, extent and approximate size of a buried object. It can be used to find pipes, foundations, voids, trenches, geological layers, re-inforcing bars, etc. It works best in dry ground environments but can also work well in wet, saturated materials. It does not work very well in saline conditions and through dense clays.
