Proper GPR Surveying Techniques
A sustainably good road surface often depends on how well understood is the ground underneath the road's route. Brian Jones* offers some best practice and advice for getting the most from ground-penetrating radar investigations
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is one of the most accurate non-destructive testing (NDT) methods available. To get the most from GPR surveying, it is absolutely...
