This invited paper, recently published by TU1208 Members on the open access journal ‘Remote Sensing’, presents a dataset of 67 GPR profiles recorded in a controlled environment (at the IFSTTAR geophysical test site) by using 3 commercial systems equipped with 14 antennas. The central frequencies of the antennas range from 200 MHz to 900 MHz. The dataset is the core part of the Open Database of Radargrams initiative of COST Action TU1208, which consists in organizing and making available for the scientific community a collection of reliable and interesting GPR responses to enable an effective benchmark for electromagnetic modelling methods, imaging and inversion techniques, and signal processing algorithms.

Registrations are still open for the upcoming Training School on the use of Ground Penetrating Radar in civil engineering and for cultural heritage management. We already have 19 Trainees registered to the School, from both academia and industry, and from seven countries (Austria, Estonia, Italy, Germany, Poland, Romania, Spain).
The class scheduling of the school has been recently enriched with new lectures and interesting practical activities.
Commercial systems manufactured by GSSI as well as prototypes developed in Italy, Croatia and United Kingdom, will be available on-site and used during practical sessions. Some systems will be pulsed and some other systems will be stepped-frequency.

Open access paper recently published on Remote Sensing by a team of researchers from Italy, Poland and Russia (with acknowledgement to TU1208).
The paper presents a new method for the electromagnetic modelling of a heterogeneous half-space. The proposed technique was successfully compared with gprMax results; then, it was applied to the interpretation of experimental data collected on the Lake Chebarkul, in Russia, and to the simulation of lunar regolith.
The research work presented in this paper was mostly carried out during two Short Term Scientific Missions funded by COST (www.cost.eu) and hosted by the National Institute of Telecommunications of Poland.

TU1208 GPR Association was founded in September 2017 as a follow up of the COST Action TU1208 "Civil engineering applications of Ground Penetrating Radar," to keep the scientific network alive, continue the excellent work that was done in the framework of the Action, and further support cooperation between Universities, research centres, private companies and public agencies active in the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) field.
To join the Association, please visit http://gpradar.eu/tu1208/ and read the instructions in the right column. The Association welcomes applications from all experts working in the GPR field (not only from those who were participating in the COST Action TU1208).
