  • This publication aims to provide a list of the main available test sites and laboratories where Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment, methodology and procedures can be tested. It also ecompasses recommendations for the design of new GPR test sites.
  • Most test sites presented in this volume are located in Europe; information about a few extra-European facilities is included, as well.
  • The catalogue will contribute to identifying new collaboration possibilities among European research teams and stimulate a stronger cooperation between academia and industry. Furthermore, the catalogue clarifies which are the existing and missing testing facilities in the various European regions, thus highlighting and possibly addressing current and near-future research needs.
  • Scientists, GPR end-users and manufacturers can exploit the facilities listed in this catalogue to test and calibrate their equipment and inspection procedures, to investigate the feasibility of new applications, to plan and offer training activities, to verify and increase the level of their own experience with respect to specific applications, and more. Moreover, this publication represents a helpful reference for the preparation of new project proposals, as well as for the definition of the workplan of research initiatives and industrial ventures.
  • It is worth stressing that test sites are central to any future Quality Assurance/Control strategy to be developed in the GPR field. Additionally, test sites are the only practical means of collecting experimental datasets in controlled conditions, to be analyzed and compared for the purposes of deriving knowledge about the performance of different GPR systems, antennas, procedures and algotithms.

 

The list of facilities provided in this publication is not exhaustive. We hope that, in the future, this catalogue will progressively become more complete and we plan to update it on a regular basis; in particular, we are looking forward to enriching the list of facilities available outside Europe. The second edition of the catalogue is foreseen for Spring 2019 and will be presented during the 10th edition of the International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar (IWAGPR 2019, Rome, Italy, 3-5 July 2019). Scientists and professionals willing to contribute to the upcoming edition of this publication are welcome to take contact with us at tu1208@gpradar.eu.

Publishing House: TU1208 GPR Association; 1st Edition: Rome, Italy, January 2018; ISBN 9788888173023; DOI: 10.978.8888173/023.

Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are among the best networking tools of COST Actions. They are aimed at supporting individual mobility of European researchers in a flexible and bottom-up approach, a concept of particular interest to young scientists. STMSs significantly strengthen scientific networks and foster integration and collaboration, this is important to make Europe more competitive and put European scientists at the forefront of worldwide technological innovation.

In the framework of COST Action TU1208, we have noticed that STSMs are especially fruitful: in most cases, significant results are achieved by the involved scientists in a limited period of time; almost all exchange visits result in the publication of joint papers.

During Grant Period 3 of COST Action TU1208, twelve STSMs were funded by the Action and fruitfully carried out. This book is a collection of scientific reports prepared by the visiting scientists in cooperation with the host scientists.

For more information about STSMs carried out in COST Action TU1208, please visit this page.

During Grant Periods 4 and 5 of COST Action TU1208, eleven STSMs were funded by the Action and fruitfully carried out. Note that the additional Grant Period 5 had an exceptional duration of six solar months. This book is a collection of scientific reports prepared by the visiting scientists in cooperation with the host scientists.
