Five (5) GPR Uses And Benefits
1. Non-Invasive Way To Detect Utility Services
Ground Penetrating Radars are able to locate and detect both metallic and non-metallic subsurface utilities such as sewers, gas pipes, cables, and many more. By doing so, this can effectively minimize possible damages and safety risks to workers before and during construction and excavation projects.
2. Check For Hazardous Waste
Aside from locating subsurface structures, GPR can also pinpoint areas where there are contamination risks such as hazardous waste leakages from surrounding factories or landfills that can affect the environment’s flora and fauna.
3. Locate Buried Objects
As mentioned above, GPR has the ability to locate structures below ground in a non-invasive and non-destructive way. This also extends to walls and smaller objects such as buried caches, objects hidden in walls, and even grave locations. This feature is extremely helpful in law enforcement, specifically in forensic investigations.
4. Mapping, Surveying, Assessment (Roads, Foundations, Buildings, Etc.)
Ground Penetrating Radars are also used to determine pavement thickness of roads, layer thickness of walls, damages and voids in various structures including bridges, and calculating the extent of foundations and footings, and other structural assessments. It is also used for mapping structures before construction.
5. Archaeological Survey
Due to its non-invasive feature, Ground Penetrating Radars now play a very important role in archaeology. Excavations now have lesser risks in damaging important structures or artifacts, and dig sites are now more precise in locating buried artifacts. This saves archaeologists time, cost, and energy in their work.
