TU1208 Open Database of Radargrams - IFSTTAR dataset

PublicationsPosted by Lara Pajewski Mon, April 30, 2018 19:06:49

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.

Electromagnetic modelling of a heterogeneous half-space for GPR applications

PublicationsPosted by Lara Pajewski Wed, February 14, 2018 17:00:44
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.
