GPR vs EMI

GPR vs EMI

GPR vs EMI

(OP)
GPR vs EMI
Attempting to locate underground, relatively shallow pipes and are unsuccessful with EMI. Is there any reason to believe that GPR would be more successful?

24 inch reinf concrete pipe, less than 10 feet deep in sandy soils

RE: GPR vs EMI

(OP)
generally the moisture content is low. soil is mostly silty sand
the pipes are reinforced concrete, so some metal but not a lot

RE: GPR vs EMI

GPR should work for this case

RE: GPR vs EMI

GPR would only care about moisture in the soil, since it's detecting changes in dielectric transmission. Someone with a multi-frequency GPR should be able to cover all the moisture bases, and the depth of penetration can be in the 10s of meters for some frequencies.
