Integrated Geophysics and Geomatics Surveys in the Valley of the Kings
TLDR
The integration of 2D/3D mapping data concerning visible elements and hypothetical anomalies, together with the recovering in the same global reference system of underground documentation pertaining to the Theban Mapping Project, prefigure the enhancement of multi-temporal site representation.
Localization of deep voids through geophysical signatures of secondary dewatering features
Discrete deep targets are a significant challenge for most surface-based geophysical techniques, even when considering high property contrasts. In general, surface-based geophysical methods lose
Towards the Definition of a Low-Cost Toolbox for Qualitative Inspection of Painted Historical Vaults by Means of Modified DSLR Cameras, Open Source Programs and Signal Processing Techniques
TLDR
Processed images were able to highlight features on vault paintings revealing details of the surface or its very shallow layers which were impossible or very difficult to distinguish in raw data.
Is this Nefertiti’s tomb? Radar clues reignite debate over hidden chambers
TLDR
A new survey hints at a previously unknown space beyond Tutankhamun’s burial chamber, which is thought to be beyond the chamber where he was buried.

Ground Penetrating Radar
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a nondestructive measurement technique, which uses electromagnetic waves to locate targets or interfaces buried within a visually opaque substance or Earth material.
Measurement system of complex permittivity of ornamental rocks in L frequency band
TLDR
A new measurement system is presented, which by exploiting a resonance phenomenon, yields accurate values of permittivity and resistivity also in the case of low-loss materials.
