Issue 1, Volume 2 of Ground Penetrating Radar

Publications Posted on Tue, May 21, 2019 15:34:45

Have you already downloaded and read Issue 1, Volume 2 of Ground Penetrating Radar (March 2019)?

That issue includes the Editorial and Preface, four interesting papers, and the usual “News & Announcements” section – check everything out at: http://gpradar.eu/journal/

As of 2019, TU1208 GPR Association is a Crossref Member; therefore Ground Penetrating Radar papers are now registered on Crossref and this is a significant step forward for the journal. Moreover, the website of the journal has been updated and now every paper has a dedicated webpage.

The publication of Issue 1, Vol. 2 of Ground Penetrating Radar was supported by: TU1208 GPR Association and IDS Georadar s.r.l.

Reconstructing the Roman site “Aquis Querquennis” (Spain) from GPR, T-LiDAR and IRT data

Publications Posted on Thu, May 31, 2018 15:57:04

Aquis Querquennis was a Roman camp located in Galicia (Bande, Spain), on
the banks of the Limia river.
It was occupied between the last quarter of the first century and the middle of
the second century. The first archaeological excavations were made in the
1920s and the overall settlement occupies three hectares. This open access paper (with acknowledgement to COST Action TU1208) presents a three-dimensional reconstruction
of the site, achieved by using GPR and T-LiDAR data, complemented with infrared thermography.

Querquennis” (Bande, Spain) from GPR, T-LiDAR and IRT Data Fusion. Remote Sens.

Use of GPR supported by mineralogical-geochemical methods for mapping unroofed cave sediments, in Slovenia

Publications Posted on Tue, May 29, 2018 17:08:19

Ground penetrating radar equipped with a special unshielded 50 MHz Rough Terrain Antenna
(RTA) and a shielded 250 MHz antenna was recently used in Slovenia to investigate the capability of this
geophysical method for detecting cave sediments of unroofed caves. The GPR technique was combined with mineralogical methods and geomorphological mapping.

TU1208 Open Database of Radargrams – IFSTTAR dataset

Publications Posted on Mon, April 30, 2018 19:06:49

This invited paper, recently published by TU1208 Members on the open access journal ‘Remote Sensing’, presents a dataset of 67 GPR profiles recorded in a controlled environment (at the IFSTTAR geophysical test site) by using 3 commercial systems equipped with 14 antennas. The central frequencies of the antennas range from 200 MHz to 900 MHz. The dataset is the core part of the Open Database of Radargrams initiative of COST Action TU1208, which consists in organizing and making available for the scientific community a collection of reliable and interesting GPR responses to enable an effective benchmark for electromagnetic modelling methods, imaging and inversion techniques, and signal processing algorithms.

Electromagnetic modelling of a heterogeneous half-space for GPR applications

Publications Posted on Wed, February 14, 2018 17:00:44

Open access paper recently published on Remote Sensing by a team of researchers from Italy, Poland and Russia (with acknowledgement to TU1208).

The paper presents a new method for the electromagnetic modelling of a heterogeneous half-space. The proposed technique was successfully compared with gprMax results; then, it was applied to the interpretation of experimental data collected on the Lake Chebarkul, in Russia, and to the simulation of lunar regolith.

The research work presented in this paper was mostly carried out during two Short Term Scientific Missions funded by COST (www.cost.eu) and hosted by the National Institute of Telecommunications of Poland.
