Roots have important functions in the ecosystem. Therefore, establishing root-related parameters such as root size, biomass, and 3-D architecture is necessary. Traditional methods for measuring tree roots are labor intensive and destructive to nature, limiting quantitative and repeated assessments in long-term research. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) provides a nondestructive method for measuring tree roots. This study investigates the feasibility of a GPR system with 500-MHz, 900-MHz, and 2… CONTINUE READING
