Abstract

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a shallow geophysical exploration technique based on the reflection of electromagnetic impulses. It gives a continuous image of the subsurface, like reflection seismics. The strong attenuation of radar waves in most soils is a major limitation. Peat however has very favourable electrical characteristics resulting in low attenuation and excellent results are obtained from GPR surveys. Several examples Southern Belgium are discussed showing the wide range of possible applications. - (L'A.)
