In this video I discuss three reasons why you might struggle seeing your buried target with ground penetrating radar.

First, you could have the wrong antenna frequency.

Second, you might be working in poor soils and your signal diminishes before it can reach the depth of your target.

Finally, there might be too little of a contrast between your target and the material it is buried in.

A few weeks back I dealt with a common GPR survey problem in another video showing how GPR practitioners can use disturbed soil to identify a buried target even if they can’t see the actual target itself with the ground penetrating radar.

So here I wanted to show why you might struggle.
