Ground-penetrating radar

Applications:

• Exploration of seam boundaries, i.e. seam structures in unconsolidated or solid rock
• Near field structural exploration of unconsolidated and solid rock (dislocation, weather zones, fracture structures)
• Examination of building grounds (differentiation of soil mechanical and/or geomechanical complexes)
• Exploration of areas of anomaly with geogenic and/or anthropogenic origin (cavities due to old mines respectively subrosion, inclusions in rock formations, construction fragments, archaeological objects)
• Examination of hydrogeological conditions (exploration of aquifers and hydraulic contacts)
• Exploration of former depositing
Trail exploration, location of pipes and wiring
