Using GPR for locating Unmarked Graves

Learn more about using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for locating unmarked graves. The webinar will address the following learning objectives:

  • Educate attendees on how GPR works, its benefits and limitations.
  • Set realistic expectations of what GPR can accomplish and highlight factors to consider when doing a survey looking for unmarked graves.
  • Provide a methodology for setting up and conducting a survey and analyzing the results.

Using a combination of GPR theory, instrument setup, survey techniques and data examples, this webinar will provide the community at large (GPR operators, those hiring the service, government) a better understanding of the application and methodology involved for locating unmarked graves.
