Book Description :

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a rapidly developing field that has seen tremendous progress over the past 15 years. The development of GPR spans aspects of geophysical science, technology, and a wide range of scientific and engineering applications. It is the breadth of applications that has made GPR such a valuable tool in the geophysical consulting and geotechnical engineering industries, has lead to its rapid development, and inspired new areas of research in academia. The topic of GPR has gone from not even being mentioned in geophysical texts ten years ago to being the focus of hundreds of research papers and special issues of journals dedicated to the topic. The explosion of primary literature devoted to GPR technology, theory and applications, has lead to a strong demand for an up-to-date synthesis and overview of this rapidly developing field. Because there are specifics in the utilization of GPR for different applications, a review of the current state of development of the applications along with the fundamental theory is required. This book will provide sufficient detail to allow both practitioners and newcomers to the area of GPR to use it as a handbook and primary research reference. *Review of GPR theory and applications by leaders in the field *Up-to-date information and references *Effective handbook and primary research reference for both experienced practitioners and newcomers

Book Description :

This book presents the integrated use of magnetometry and ground-penetrating radar geophysical mapping to understand the human presence within buried archaeological landscapes. Ground-penetrating radar can be used to identify buried living surfaces, geological stratigraphy and the architectural remains of sites in three-dimensions. Magnetometry can produce images denoting differences on the composition of those materials, both anthropogenic and natural, but with more limited three-dimensional resolution. The integration of the two has a unique ability to resolve and interpret these buried materials, differentiated between the human-caused and natural layers, and place all buried features within historic landscapes. The final product of geophysical integration, along with some limited subsurface testing, produces a holistic analysis of human adaptations to, and modifications of, the ancient landscape. Examples are shown from sites in Roman Croatia and Britain, Medieval Ireland, Colonial Connecticut, and an Archaic site in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. These examples from very different environments, time periods and cultural groups illustrate how the integrated geophysical methodology can interpret, on a scale approaching many hectares, the ancient landscapes within which people lived.

Book Description :

There has long been a strong collaboration between geologists and archaeologists, and the sub-field of geoarchaeology is well developed as a discipline in its own right. This book now bridges the gap between those fields and the geophysical technique of ground-penetrating radar (GPR), which allows for three-dimensional analysis of the ground to visualize both geological and archaeological materials. This method has the ability to produce images of the ground that display complex packages of materials, and allows researchers to integrate sedimentary units, soils and associated archaeological features in ways not possible using standard excavation techniques. The ability of GPR to visualize all these buried units can help archaeologists place ancient people within the landscapes and environments of their time, and understand their burial and preservation phenomena in three-dimensions. Readership: Advanced students in archaeology and geoarchaeology, as well as practicing archaeologists with an interest in GPS techniques.

Book Description :

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) has become one of the standard tools in the archaeologist's array of methods, but users still struggle to understand what the images tell us. In this book—illustrated with over 200 full-color photographs—Lawrence Conyers shows how results of geophysical surveys can test ideas regarding people, history, and cultures, as well as be used to prospect for buried remains. Using 20 years of data from more than 600 GPR surveys in a wide array of settings, Conyers, one of the first archaeological specialists in GPR, provides the consumer of GPR studies with basic information on how the process works. He show how the plots are generated, what subsurface factors influence specific profiles, how the archaeologist can help the surveyor collect optimal data, and how to translate the results into useable archaeological information.

Book Description :

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has long been considered the most suitable geophysical approach for imaging of the internal structure of aeolian sand bodies, offering a more detailed three-dimensional representation of depositional architecture than traditional methods of coring or trenching. Over the last two decades, numerous studies have been published on sand bodies ranging from large sand seas to coastal dunes, overwhelmingly with exemplary results. Aside from academic interest in dune architecture to determine rates of dune migration or variations in depositional regimes, practical interest exists from the petroleum exploration sector in the creation of detailed 3D models of contemporary dunes as analogues to buried hydrocarbonbearing dune systems. In addition, seismic exploration of desert regions requires an understanding of the exact height of sand dunes and underlying weathered material. Although both these applications require that GPR be able to image through, and ideally beyond, entire dunes, nearly every published work has concentrated on shallow dunes (

Book Description :

Radar techniques, developed originally for the detection of targets in the sky or on the surface of land or sea, are now being adapted as a means of investigating the composition and integrity of non-conducting materials and structures. Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) is deliberated one of the more complex of near-surface geophysical techniques, but also one of the more accurate, because of its ability to map buried archaeological features in three-dimensions. Data from many two-dimensional reflections profiles within a tightly spaced grid can be processed to remove noise, transfer reflections to their correct subsurface location, and then enhance important reflections from subsurface interfaces of interest. Three-dimensional images can then be constructed that produce realistic isosurfaces and amplitude slice-maps of buried features. When GPR reflections are incorporated with information derived from standard archaeological methods, and corrected to depth in the ground using velocity analysis, GPR maps can be used to display a large amount of information from limited excavations to produce a great deal of knowledge from a very large area. This book is packed with the studies that connect the gap between those fields and the geophysical technique of ground-penetrating radar (GPR), which allows for three-dimensional analysis of the ground to envisage both geological and archaeological materials. The use of GPR in archaeological exploration has advanced dramatically over the last decades. The ability to convert echoes, measured in time, to approximate depth using calibrations derived from velocity analyses was a major advancement to visualize all these hidden elements can assist archaeologists dwell ancient people within the landscapes and environments of their time, and know their burial and preservation phenomena in three-dimensions. The book will appeal to advanced students in archaeology and geoarchaeology, as well as practitioners having an interest in GPS techniques.
