Improving Ground Penetrating Radar Resolution of Features of Active Sinkholes

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is widely used to identify locations of sinkholes in covered karst terrain in Florida. Some sinkholes serve as hydraulic conduits between the surficial and underlying

Identification of Underground Karst Features using Ground‐Penetrating Radar in Northern Yucatán, México

Northern Yucatán is a dry tropical area where limestone karst terrain supports a subdeciduous forest that is critical for sustaining the local economy of Mayan people. The 5‐ to 10‐m‐deep vadose zone

Delineation of Sedimentary Facies and Groundwater-Sea Water Disposition in an Intertidal Zone of the Bay of Bengal using GPR and VES

A combination of geophysical study including ground penetrating radar (GPR) and vertical electrical sounding (VES) was done to identify different shallow-subsurface depositional features in an

Mapping thermal tufa deposits using GPR

Tufa (freshwater calcareous) deposits can provide excellent targets for GPR exploration due to low clay content and low salinity. Widespread tufa deposits occur at the surface and in the shallow



Ground-penetrating radar for high-resolution mapping of soil and rock stratigraphy

Ground-penetrating radar is a technique which offers a new way of viewing shallow soil and rock conditions. The need to better understanding overburden conditions for activities such as geochemical

Ground-penetrating radar; a near-face experience from Washington County, Arkansas

Digital ground‐penetrating radar (GPR) is an emerging technology for detecting, locating, and/or mapping features in the shallow subsurface. It has application to geology, civil engineering,

Ground-penetrating radar investigation of a Lake Bonneville deita, Provo level, Brigham City, Utah

Field experiments carried out in the Brigham Sand and Gravel Company pit, near Brigham City, Utah, show an impressive similarity between observed gravelly deltaic foreset facies in highwall exposures

Seismic stratigraphy and tectonic development of Virgin River depression and associated basins, southeastern Nevada and northwestern Arizona

Virgin River depression is a Neogene basin, with a surface area that exceeds 1,500 km 2 in the Basin and Range structural province of south-eastern Nevada and northwestern Arizona. The depression

Geostatistical analysis of ground‐penetrating radar data: A means of describing spatial variation in the subsurface

We have investigated the use of ground‐penetrating radar (GFR) as a means of characterizing the heterogeneity of the subsurface. Radar data were collected at several sites in southwestern British

Origin of the Mormon Mesa Caliche, Clark County, Nevada

On the basis of field and laboratory data described herein, it is concluded that the Mormon Mesa caliche has formed primarily as the result of pedogenetic processes, probably under slowly aggrading,
