Abstract

A standard measurement procedure currently applied in the ground penetrating radar (GPR) method is short-offset reflection profiling. As this procedure delivers data that is suited only for qualitative interpretation, its application should be limited exclusively to reconnaissance surveys. There are various other techniques used in GPR surveying that may be regarded as non-standard, such as multi-offset and adaptable-polarisation surveying and tomography. Because these techniques deliver information that allows for quantitative interpretation, they could be applied for the detailed examination of geological media and investigations of various buried anthropogenic targets. This paper focuses on the application of non-standard GPR techniques for the detection of high-porosity zones in river dikes. REsults from both field surveys and numerical modelling are presented.
