This documents InfoBank's usage of "ground penetrating radar"
  • "Ground-Penetrating Radar" (GPR) information (as used within the CMG InfoBank ) covers above water and below water GPR systems operating from 50MHz to 450MHz.


  • GPR information occurs in the InfoBank as:
    metadata information about GPR inventory of gear and operation of gear.

  • InfoBank GPR metadata file names:
    <Activity-ID>.onoff.gpr50mhz ground-penetrating radar 50 mhz systems metadata
    <Activity-ID>.onoff.gpr50mhzwater ground-penetrating radar 50 mhz water systems metadata
    <Activity-ID>.onoff.gpr100mhz ground-penetrating radar 100 mhz systems metadata
    <Activity-ID>.onoff.gpr100mhzcrosshole ground-penetrating radar 100 mhz cross hole systems metadata
    <Activity-ID>.onoff.gpr200mhz ground-penetrating radar 200 mhz systems metadata
    <Activity-ID>.gpr.gpr450mhz ground-penetrating radar 450 mhz systems metadata
