Ground Penetrating Radar: Classical Issues and New Perspectives
This lecture examines the migration algorithm and recent advancements regarding the application of this algorithm on GPR data. In particular, after exposing the migration as a procedure derivable from the diffraction tomography, the possibility of combining different images achieved from the same data with different migration procedures will be exposed.
