Evaluating Ground Penetrating Radar Measurements for River Ice Travel Applications

This project seeks to provide insight into applicability of ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys for minimizing environmental risks that affect communities relying on river ice transportation routes. Specifically, the project team will analyze measurements from different frequency GPR antennas to distinguish layers of different ice types and to relate GPR measurements to the overall ice cover strength.
