A ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey was conducted adjacent to a tree at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, New York. This data was used to test the effectiveness of GPR to detect tree roots in the subsurface. Using the Radacal and Brick-of-Bytes (BOB) programs 2-D and 3-D images were produced. The objective of this case study is to test the ability of Ground Penetrating Radar to image tree roots in the shallow subsurface, and to compare and contrast the effect of dipole antenna system position to direction of traverse.
