What Does Ground Penetrating Radar Do?
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) emits pulses of radio frequency from the antenna, which are reflected back from the materials found in the soil below. Objects or regions of higher density will reflect back quicker and stronger then area’s of lower density. This is what makes it possible to locate underground pipes, cables, and underground storage tanks. GPR is a particularly good tool for underground utility locators because of it’s ability to locate plastics, and other non-conductive utilities.
