GPR Applications in Sedimentology

Charlie Bristow - Birkbeck University of London

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is commonly used in the search for buried infrastructure but can also be used for local correlation, sand-body geometry, and sedimentary architecture. It provides a high-resolution image of shallow stratigraphy and can be widely applied in sedimentology. This talk will focus on sedimentary applications including examples from a range of different sedimentary environments including rivers, beaches, sand dunes and peat bogs.
