GPR 2022 Proceedings Papers

The Conference provides an excellent opportunity for sharing knowledge through presentations. The Conference plans to accept submittals for oral presentation and for poster presentation. Please refer to the schedule presented below for information relating to important dates for the submittal and review process.

Proceedings Paper Submittal Procedure

Those who have submitted abstracts and upon acceptance, have two options available:

  • Prepare and submit a Proceedings Paper for inclusion in the Proceedings document for the Conference. (Click on buttons below to download the proceedings paper kit and and example) Authors pursuing this option will be required to submit a draft proceedings paper that will be peer reviewed. If it is determined that the draft proceedings paper requires additional editing and/or modification before publication in the Proceedings, a final proceedings paper will be required.
  • Do nothing further. For authors pursuing this option, the submitted abstract will be published in an abstract compilation; however, the material presented in the abstract and in the subsequent presentation at the Conference will not be included in the Proceedings.

The actual presentation materials, for either oral or poster presentations, will not be submitted for review or approval.

Proceedings Papers must be submitted no later than March 1, 2022.

Submittal of Documents

Proceedings Papers

Proceedings papers shall be submitted as Portable Document Format (.pdf) computer files. The proceedings paper within the file shall be “camera-ready”; that is, it shall be complete, properly formatted, and ready in all respects to be directly included in the published compilation. Each proceedings paper shall be constructed/formatted in strict accordance with a specified template that is available for download from this website (see below). Proceedings papers, including all references and illustrations, shall not exceed 4 pages in length, and the file shall not be larger than 10MB. Please see the Below Section for instructions for submitting proceedings paper files.

Several resources are available to assist you in preparing your proceedings paper: (Click on any of the topics below to download the documents)

Note: The Word templates referenced above are Microsoft Word “forms” that show large gray areas. To install your content within an area, click on the area to highlight it and then enter your content.


It is not required that the person submitting documents is the presenting author of the documents. All communication from the Conference staff concerning a document will be directed to the person who submits the document (the account holder). It is the responsibility of the submitter to forward correspondence from the DMS to all other authors of the document.

For questions about document submission or for help with the Document Management System, please contact the Conference staff at Learn@mines.edu.

Poster Presentations

All poster presentations should follow the instructions and recommendations contained in the poster instructions document that is available for download.

Attendance of Conference

At least one author of each accepted presentation must register for and attend the Conference and must present the information covered by the abstracts at the Conference in accordance with the applicable presentation schedule.

Topics for Presentations

Presentations in the following areas are invited:

Climate change: will focus on studies exploring any aspect of climate change and how GPR can help understanding its dynamics, from glaciers and ice-sheets, to carbon-rich ecosystems, to sea-level rise. [Leader: Hans-Peter Marshall; Boise State; hpmarshall@boisestate.edu]

Biogeosciences: will focus on studies exploring the interactions between biological and geological processes, whether imaging the spatial and temporal variability in microbial processes within the subsurface, monitoring of biogenic fluxes, studies exploring the connection between above and belowground biomass (i.e. trees vs. roots), or studies related to bioremediation. [Leader: Xavier Comas; FAU; xcomas@fau.edu]

Hydrogeophysics: will focus on the development and application of GPR methods to estimate hydrological properties and to monitor hydrological processes over a variety of conditions (i.e. porous or fractured media, unsaturated and saturated environments), and its response to contaminants. [Leader: Esther Babcock; Logic Geophysics; ebabcock@logicgeophysics.com]

Geology/Sedimentology/Geomorphology: will focus on studies using GPR to better understand the relation between surface landforms and their subsurface stratigraphy/expressions, as well as the processes inducing their formation and evolution (e.g. coastal, fluvial, aeolian). [Leader: Harry Jol; Wisconsin-Eau Claire; jolhm@uwec.edu]

Engineering/Infrastructure: will focus on studies using GPR to inspect and image (both spatially and over time) any infrastructure whether above or belowground. This may include building walls, roads, utilities, tunnels, bridges, etc… [Leader: Johannes Hugenschmidt; Rapperswil University of Applied Science; johannes.hugenschmidt@hsr.ch]

Planetary Sciences: will focus on studies investigating the subsurface structure of bodies and planets in the Solar System, whether directly or by using terrestrial analogues. [Leaders: Nathaniel Putzig / Becky Ghent; Mines; nputzig@mines.edu / rghent@psi.edu]

Archaeology: will focus on studies using GPR to investigate archaeological sites, such as locating and mapping of sensitive cultural resources. [Leader: Larry Conyers; Denver; lconyers@du.edu]

Cryosphere: will focus on studies using GPR to investigate any aspect of the cryosphere, from glaciers, to permafrost, and whether related to the characterization of the internal structure, processes and dynamics of the cryosphere. [Leader: Dan McGrath; CSU; daniel.mcgrath@colostate.edu]

Methods: will focus on any methodological aspects of the GPR technique, from design, to implementation and including data processing. [Leader: Anja Klotzsche; Jülich; a.klotzsche@fz-juelich.de]

Forensic: will focus on studies related to forensic research, including cemetery case studies, mass-grave detection, and investigations to assist police and law enforcement, i.e., clandestine burials or crime-scene investigations. [Leader: Jamie Pringle ; Keele University, UK; j.k.pringle@keele.ac.uk]

Drones: will focus on studies and preliminary datatsets using GPR mounted on drones for any specific application. [Leader: Per Westholm; Guidelinegeo; per.westholm@guidelinegeo.com]

Educational: will focus on studies using GPR for educational purposes such as teaching and showcasing the methodology and its applications. [Leaders: Charly Bank; USF/Toronto; bank@es.utoronto.ca]

Security infrastructure: will focus on studies using GPR for security, emergency measures or military applications: i.e. search and rescue, intrusion detection, UXO and landmines, etc. [Leader: Phil Reppert; National Energy Technology Laboratory; Philip.Reppert@netl.doe.gov]

General submissions: will focus on any other studies using GPR that will not fit into any of the categories above. [Leader: Adam Mangel; Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; adam.mangel@pnnl.gov]
