The study primarily aims at providing adequate imaging resolution of large and prominent targets of archaeological interest, such as pyramids and tumuli, at all depth levels. We implemented an integrated seismic tomography and georadar (STG) technique to perform high-resolution imaging and characterization of tumuli (burial mounds). We tested the proposed(More)
Integrated remote sensing and geophysical methods can provide detailed information about buried cultural heritage. We implemented an integrated survey protocol (IREGA, Integrated REmote-sensing and Geophysical prospecting for Archaeology) and tested the performance of the method in the area of the ancient Roman town of Aquileia, NE Italy, to define and(More)
An interdisciplinary study of the archaeological landscape of the Trieste area (northeastern Italy), mainly based on airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR), ground penetrating radar (GPR), and archaeological surveys, has led to the discovery of an early Roman fortification system, composed of a big central camp (San Rocco) flanked by two minor forts.(More)
Resolution is a crucial parameter in pre-excavation surveys of archaeological sites. Geophysical methods based on Laplace (gravity, magnetics), diffusion (e.g. low-frequency electromagnetics) and wave equations (i.e. seismics and ground-penetrating radar GPR) are often applied in this sequence to attain increasing detail about subsurface characteristics(More)
GPR and reflection seismics share common physical and methodological bases but are sensitive to different subsurface physical properties. The peculiarities of the electromagnetic case impact data acquisition, processing and interpretation. We review multi-offset techniques in GPR applications focusing on similarities and differences through examples taken(More)
