The Ninth International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR 2002) was held in Santa Barbara, California, USA from April 29 to May 02, 2002.
GPR 2002 is a biennial series of international scientific symposia devoted to the development of ground penetrating radar. The conference presented the most recent technical information and case studies on ground penetrating radar for engineers, scientists, and end users.
The Conference Proceedings contains 131 papers from 21 countries which was presented in oral and interactive poster sessions. A Special Session on "The New Regulatory Environment for GPR" with a Panel Discussion discussed the latest information and situation on the FCC/NTIA rulings on ultra wideband systems.
The conference received generous sponsorship from four organizations:
GroundProbe, Sensors & Software, Inc., Mala Geoscience, and Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. In addition to contributing valuable funds to ensure a successful conference, the active involvement of the sponsors at GPR2002 demonstrated the importance that GPR technology now plays in solving geophysical and geotechnical problems.
GPR 2004 is the next conference in the biennial series, and will be held in
Delft, The Netherlands.
