Paper Abstract

Earthen flood banks/levees in the Odra river valley near Wroclaw (Lower Silesia, Poland) were inspected with the round penetrating radar (RAMAC/GPR). The aim of the investigations was to describe the internal structure of the flood banks and to detect damages failures due to water percolation, fluation, rinsing, outwashing, sinking and erosion. Radar profiling was made along the axes of the earthen constructions using 200 MHz shielded antennas. The geological interpretation of the radar data was verified by drilling. The usefulness of the radar method (GPR) for rapid and non-destructive monitoring of earthen flood banks has been proved.
