Course Structure

DAY 1
Participants are introduced to basic GPR principles. Fundamentals of electromagnetic theory, physical properties and EM wave properties are discussed.

Instrumentation concepts are presented and focus is placed on key issues in GPR survey design. An overview of the field day and instrumentation assembly is followed by a discussion of various applications illustrated through a series of case studies.

DAY 2
Students are given the opportunity to use the pulseEKKO and Noggin GPR systems in a field environment. Direction on system setup and calibration is provided as well as tips for optimum data acquisition.

Day 3
Using field data obtained from Day 2, students will learn the steps in processing and presenting data with the various software packages available. A familiarity with Windows operating systems is recommended.

All attendees will be provided with a memory stick containing software, with limited use licenses, and sample data for practice at home.
