Geoarcheological field research using ground-penetrating radar (GPR)

Photos from our geoarcheological investigations using GPR, July 2003, Nemea Valley, Greece (click for site maps and GPR data results).

This was a collaboration with the Bryn Mawr College department of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, under the direction of Prof. Jim Wright.

200 MHz antennas held at a constant separation distance (50 cm) and moved systematically along a measured survey line (common-offset survey mode) downhill hillside, Nemea valley, Greece.
