Abstract

This paper presents results from an experiment to assess the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to remotely sense pipes in blanket peat. The technique is shown to be successful in identifying most of the pipes tested in the pilot catchment. Comparison of data on pipes identified by GPR and verified by manual measurement suggests that pipescan be located in the soil profile with a depth accuracy of 20 to 30 cm. GPR-identified pipes were found throughout the soil profile; however, those whithin 10-20 cm of the surface could not be identified using the 100 or 200 MHz antennae due to multiple surface reflections
