Paper Abstract

The use of radar polarimetry for subsurface sensing is introduced in this paper. We developed a polarimetric borehole radar, which can acquire the full-polarimetric radar profile in a borehole. The measured profile showed that subsurface fracture characteristics can be obtained from the polarimetric analysis. This information is closely related to subsurface fracture characteristics, which cannot directly be imaged by conventional radar.
