MercuryB Radar Results Page

The radar parameters for all the radar measurements are listed below:
Fo  200MHz
dF 10MHz 
N 80
Er 6

Please excuse the fact that the radar data does not include an Z and X scale. For images the dimension down the page is the depth into the ground and the dimension across the page is the along track (X) dimension.

Cross section of the 6th floor passage outside the Radar Lab.

NOTE: The small hyperbolic profiles are the radar returns from concrete re-inforcing bars
SCAN Distance: +/- 20m  spacing   0.1 m
OTHER:  Approx maximum depth is arou d 1.2m (of the image)


Cross section over road bed on the ground floor outside the Menzies building

NOTE: The hyperbolic profiles from the pipes are easily visible on the right of the image. These
correspond with visual observations of the site.
SCAN Distance: +/-12m, sample spacing 0.1m
OTHER:  Approx maximum depthof the image is around 2.2m


Cross section of a road bed over a sewage pipe at a depth of approx 1.2m

NOTE: The pipe return is again clearly visible. Note the change of depth of a layer below the surface
SCAN Distance:  +/- 8m, sample spacing 0.1m
OTHER:    Approx maximum depth of the image is around 2.2m
