Ground-Penetrating Radar for Archaeology, Paperback / softback Book

Ground-Penetrating Radar for Archaeology Paperback / softback

Part of the Geophysical Methods for Archaeology series


Ground-penetrating radar is a near-surface geophysical technique that can provide three-dimensional maps and other images of buried archaeological features and associated stratigraphy in a precise way.

This book, by the expert in the field, provides the basics of the physics, chemistry, geology, and archaeology in a clear fashion, unburdened by complex equations or theory.

The reader will be able to understand how the latest equipment and software and the results of data collection and processing can be used effectively in a number of different settings. Both potential pitfalls and successes and the reasons for them are discussed.

The many well-illustrated examples, with important tables and graphs, are useful for reference in the field and for data processing.
