Field Activity 12TST07

Identifier 12TST07
Purpose Test various GPR system settings to determine those most applicable, at a minimum, for a sandy environment. Re-run lines collected during March 05, 2012 survey and compare results.
Location Fort De Soto Park, FL
Summary Various parameters tested over multiple environments. A total of 12 lines were collected in RADAN (.dzt) proprietary format (files will be converted to non-proprietary format for archival purposes).
Info derived Subsurface features (if present); most applicable settings to use in varying environments (from marsh to barrier island) in order to acquire highest resolution, multiple depths of penetration and best looking data.
Comments This is not an actual field activity but a test of field equipment prior to deployment and data collection; therefore, the Research Topic of TST (short for Test) was assigned.
