Ground Penetrating Radar for Archaeology

Workshop: ARF Special & Workshops | December 1 | 1-5 p.m. | 101 2251 College (Archaeological Research Facility)

Ground penetrating radar is a non-destructive geophysical technique that works particularly well mapping buried features, other objects and strata in uniform soils. ARF is doing a GPR workshop using a GSSI SIR 3000 (400 Mhz antenna) GPR.
At 1pm the workshop will begin at the UC Faculty Club lawn where subsurface features are being mapped. These are most likely foundations of 19th century cottages. After gathering data within a mapped grid, we’ll move to ARF room 101 for preliminary processing and analysis of the data.
