In Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), the radar signal is an electromagnetic pulse that is directed into the ground. Subsurface objects cause reflections in the data and the travel time indicates the depth of the object.
GPR is best utilized in sandy soils without a lot of clay, silts or material that will cause metallic interference. Rocky terrain or heterogeneous sediments can further cause problems.
