Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Recognized as one of the most powerful remote sensing instruments available today, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a safe, non-invasive geophysical investigation method for “looking” underground to image subsurface features. GPR detects metallic and non-metallic, natural and man-made underground features including; utilities, storage tanks, rebar, sinkholes, voids, water table, buried artifacts, gravesites, and more.
GPR equipment emits a series of high frequency, high amplitude electromagnetic pulses (radio waves) that reflect off of underground irregularities. The resulting digital GPR data is fed into a portable video display and displayed as a real-time “picture” of a slice of the subsurface area. As a result, our experienced operators are able to pinpoint the precise location of subsurface features on the ground surface in real-time.
T2 Utility Engineers’ skilled technicians utilize a variety of GPR equipment. Equipment and antenna configurations are chosen to obtain the most accurate data possible.
