Ground Penetrating Radar: Theory and Applications, Second Edition is a fully updated reference covering a rapidly developing field that has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Spanning a variety of disciplines, including geophysics, technology and a wide range of other scientific and engineering applications, the book covers a breadth of applications, making it a valuable tool in geophysical consulting and in geotechnical engineering. This new edition offers an up-to-date synthesis and an overview of this rapidly developing field, featuring coverage of primary literature devoted to GPR technology, theory, and applications and updates, including new chapters on utility, modeling and visualization.

Because there are specifics in the utilization of GPR for different applications, a review of the current state of development of the applications and its fundamental theory is required.

Key Features

  • Serves as an extensive review of GPR theory and applications by leaders in the field
  • Includes fully updated research, reviews of the field and detailed references
  • Offers primary research for both experienced practitioners and newcomers to the field, including industry personnel, consulting companies and academic institutes
  • Provides links to video simulations and expanded images


Exploration geophysicists, geotechnical engineers, geomorphologists, archaeologists, soil scientists, hydrogeologists, earth scientists, geologists

About the Editor

Harry Jol

Harry Jol earned his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from Simon Fraser University (Canada) and Ph.D. from the University of Calgary (Canada, 1996). After 2 post-doctoral fellowships, he accepted a position at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where he is presently a Professor. During his Master's degree he worked on the Fraser River Delta conducting a high resolution shallow seismic program in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Canada. During in his Ph.D. research through to the present he has utilized ground penetrating radar (GPR) at more than 1200+ sites in North America, Europe, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, and Antarctica which has resulted in being nominated and awarded Fellow of the Geological Society of America. Harry has a broad background in the earth sciences, particularly geomorphology, stratigraphy, and geoarchaeology. His collaborative research includes undergraduate students and results from these projects have resulted in numerous publications, conference presentations and three edited GPR volumes.
