Abstract: Ground penetrating radar has not been widely used for subsurface exploration in Civil Engineering. This paper describes the experimental setup used to explore ground penetrating radar for locating buried drums containing hazardous substances and for determining the condition of timber railroad ties while in track. The procedures used for processing the data and the results are briefly described.
