Paper Abstract

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has been one of widely spreading technologies in this decade. Much improvement has been achieved in devices and data processings. Main roll of GPR is to make a view of underground condition unseen to human eyes. For a good use of GPR an interpretation is crucial as well as having a good device. Interpreting work has been mostly performed in order to find and locate buried objects and to figure out geometric layer structures. The work is just a recognition of reflection. But GPR records reflect various physical phenomena. They include more information than just existence of reflectors. Complexity on records occur as a result that various physical phenomena and characteristics of layer geometry interacted. Some examples showed that theoretical speculation allows us to unveil the complexity and strangeness on records and to obtain more information on physical properties or material identification of surveyed objects.
