Welcome to GPR 2022!

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 19th International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR 2022), which will be held in Golden, Colorado, USA from June 12 to June 17, 2022. Held biennially since 1986, The International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar is the premier event for GPR research and applications. Drawing together scientists, engineers, industrial delegates and end-users, the conference is a place to see all of the latest GPR developments, ranging from fundamental advances in methods to the most interesting case studies.

Topics covered include novel developments of GPR systems and antennas, advanced data processing algorithms for improved subsurface imaging, radar data modeling approaches and inversion strategies for quantitative reconstruction of soil and material properties, and finally, data interpretation in a range of fields, including geology and sedimentology, glaciology, environmental and agricultural engineering (e.g., hydrological monitoring, digital soil mapping, forestry), civil and military engineering (e.g., utility detection, monitoring of transport infrastructures, nondestructive testing, landmine detection), archeology and cultural heritage, and planetary exploration, among others.

Recent News and Information

This year we are planning four special plenary panel discussions which will cover

a. GPR to help monitor climate change
b. How GPR can help with developing and renewing infrastructure
c. Biogeophysics and GPR
d. Exploration of planets and other extraterrestrial bodies

GPR 2022 will be held on the Colorado School of Mines campus in the historic Green Center, located in beautiful Golden, Colorado, USA. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Golden’s unique charm offers numerous opportunities for outdoor excursions. And with downtown Denver just 20 minutes away, cultural opportunities abound.
