3 Day Ground Penetrating Radar Course
May 29-31, 2019

Sensors & Software Inc. offers 3 days of intensive, informative instruction on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). The course covers basic principles, GPR instrumentation, survey design, data processing, analysis, and interpretation.

From the premier pulseEKKO®, designed for the advanced user, to the innovative Noggin® that couples the latest in GPR technology with ease-of-use, this hands-on course covers all of Sensors & Software’s complete range of GPR systems.

  • Continental breakfast on Day 1 & 3, lunch and snacks each day of the course
  • Dinner on Day 2
  • Transportation to and from the field site
  • Course notes
  • Use of GPR equipment and data processing software

GPR concepts are introduced over 3 days of intense instruction. The first day reviews the fundamentals of GPR and the instrumentation involved. A field school at Canadian Forces Base Borden (renown as a GPR research site) on the second day focuses on providing students with practical experience. The third day provides an overview on how to process the GPR data to obtain desired results.

The course fee includes extensive handouts, use of GPR equipment and data processing computers. Text reference is Ground Penetrating Radar: Principles, Procedures and Applications, by A.P. Annan. A continental breakfast is served on Day 1 and 3. Lunch and snacks will be provided each day of the course as well as a BBQ dinner on Day 2. Transportation to the field site is included.

Course Structure

DAY 1 – Wednesday, May 29, 2018
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 – Thursday, May 30, 2018
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 – Friday, May 31, 2018
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.
