Abstract

The state of burial sites for radioactive and other toxic substances poses an environmental hazard, when there are no schemes for their placement and the technical arrangement of their structures is unknown. Thus, it is necessary to determine the condition and structure of underground structures by non-invasive methods. One of the most non-invasive methods in terms of information content and minimization of threats in research is the GPR method. Based on the foregoing, we present two-dimensional and three-dimensional radio images of the underground repository. Rotating radio images at different angles, it is possible to determine the structure of an object located under the daylight surface.


Field georadar work was carried out using the Zond 12e georadar and the interpretation of the results was carried out using the Prism-2.5 and Voxler-4 programs.
