How Ground Penetrating Radar Works To Find Underground Utilities 

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Equipment service provided by Geoscope

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a powerful geophysical tool that enables non-destructive detection of subsurface objects and structures, such as pipes and cables. It has become a crucial instrument in industries such as construction, utilities, archaeology, and geology. This article will explore how GPR works and how it can be used to locate underground utilities. Through the use of electromagnetic waves emitted from an antenna, GPR is capable of transmitting and receiving reflected waves from subsurface structures and features, allowing for their detection and analysis. GPR systems typically consist of a control unit, antenna, power supply, data storage, positioning system, and display. Understanding the fundamentals of GPR is essential for locating underground utilities and minimising the risk of damage during excavation.
