Paper Abstract

The interaction of high-frequency electromagnetic wave-fields with a typical ground-penetrating radar (GPR) antenna is complex and its effects on the recorded data are not well understood. Further distortions of the radiation pattern and pulse shape must be expected to arise in the presence of a shielding of the antenna. To address these issues, we present a three-dimensional finite-difference approximation of Maxwell's equations that allows to model realistically the near-field radiation characteristic of a typical GPR system.
