Training Event Navigation
Ground Penetrating Radar for Archaeology is an advanced course offering through GSSI Academy. The class covers relevant GPR theory, the planning of geophysical fieldwork, survey area layout and best practices, data acquisition, and post-processing techniques in GSSI’s RADAN 7 software. Also discussed are methods for integrating GPR data into other software platforms (like Surfer and ArcGIS).
A fieldwork component will include gridded GPR data collection at a 19th-20th century historical site in Nashua, New Hampshire. Class participants will then post-process collected datasets and learn how to interpret archaeological GPR data.
Prerequisites for class participation include previous experience with GPR (>1 year preferred), familiarity with GPR post-processing and RADAN 7, and experience with archaeological method and theory. GSSI highly recommends participation in UtilityScan and RADAN 7 classes prior to enrolling in this course.
