3D Imaging of the Subsurface with Multi-channel Ground Penetrating Radar: From Promise to Practice


April 4, 2013 – 1:00 to 5:00 PM

Presented by Dr. Stephen Moysey

This short-course will provide an overview of applications of ground-penetrating radar in hydrogeology and environmental engineering.  The focus will be on: (1) understanding practical problems that GPR is likely to help solve, (2) identifying issues that lead to poor data collection and incorrect interpretations of GPR data, and (3) new advances in radar imaging, including 3D imaging.  The discussion will highlight multi-channel data collection systems, which provide the opportunity to drastically decrease survey time and enhance imaging performance.  The course will consist of classroom and field sessions. 

Cost of the workshop is included in the registration fee for the Hydrogeology Symposium, but there are a limited number of seats. Please indicate your desire to attend when you register.

Preliminary schedule:
1:00-3:00 – Understanding the capabilities and applications of multichannel GPR (classroom)
3:00-4:00 – Multichannel GPR Demo (field)
4:00-5:00 – Pitfalls and challenges for practical GPR imaging problems (classroom)
5:30 – Join the symposium reception at the Geology Museum

About the instructor:  Stephen Moysey has been an Assistant Professor in Clemson’s Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences since 2005.  He works in the area of hydrogeophysics, particularly in developing new methods for monitoring flow and transport in porous media with an emphasis on understanding preferential flow in soils.  He has used GPR for problems ranging from stochastic modeling of transport in aquifers to monitoring infiltration and performing landmine detection.  He holds a BSc in Environmental Physical Sciences from the University of Alberta, MS in Hydrology and Water Resources from the University of Arizona, and a PhD in Geophysics from Stanford University.
