ground penetrating radar (GPR)

Central Arkansas Water (CAW) supplies fresh water to about a half million of Arkansas population; therefore, to avoid service interruptions and damage cost, its pipes and other facility locations must be depicted in a realistic view of the subsurface before excavation work is done. Accordingly, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys were conducted to locate the CAW pipelines as well as other potential utility lines beneath the old Broadway Bridge prior to the planned excavation work on the bridge site.


Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has a wide range of applications such as detection of buried mines, pipes and wires. GPR has been used as a near-surface remote sensing technique, and its working principle is based on electromagnetic (EM) wave theory. Here proposed data set is meant for data driven surrogate modelling based Buried Object Characterization. The considered problem of estimating geophysical parameters of a buried object is 2D. The training and testing scenarios include B-scan images (2D data), which contain 16 pairs of A-scan (concatenated forms of A-scans).
