Project description

In this project, we will further develop multi-offset ground-penetrating radar, where different distances (offsets) between transmitter and receiver are used for data acquisition. When applied on a large enough scale, this should produce clearer horizontal slices of the soil. This technique will be used in archaeological contexts: Roman houses and farmsteads in Mariana (Corsica) and the Potenza Valley (Marche, Italy).
