The Contractor shall perform underground utility investigation by using, but not limited to, conventional pipe and cable locating technique, ground penetrating radar (GPR) scans.
a leading manufacturer of subsurface imaging systems, has introduced the Quantum Imager, the world's first ground penetrating radar system to use triple-frequency radar technology for locating and imaging objects at greater depths and with higher resolution than competitive single- or dual-frequency systems.
The 2450GR Ground Penetrating Radar system uses radar pulses to image the subsurface and detect both metallic and non-metallic pipes and cables to depths of up to 19 feet.
Among the topics are estimating near-surface shear-wave velocity and quality factor by inverting high-frequency Rayleigh waves, analyzing the velocity dispersion and attenuation behavior of multi-frequency sonic logs, determining electric permittivity and conductivity directly from surface-reflection data from air-launched ground penetrating radar, high-resolution seismic imaging of near-surface fault structures within the Upper Rhine Graben in Germany, and detecting perched water bodies using surface-seismic time-lapse travel-time tomography.
