Paper # 1 deals with the basic issues of a linear inverse scattering approach for GPR imaging of targets hosted in a layered structure and addresses the issues of how many measurements are necessary and the frequency bandwidth required.

Paper # 2 presents a qualitative method to perform subsurface imaging from multi-fold stepped frequency (narrow band) GPR data. The proposed imaging tool is based on a very simple processing, does not entail approximations onto the wave-targets interaction and it is capable of delivering full 3D images almost in real time. In addition, it is not prone to reliability and computational complexity issues typical of non-linear model based inversion schemes.

Paper # 3 addresses the topic of incorporating available model information to enhance the imaging capabilities of GPR microwave tomography. The specific case dealt with is the time-lapse monitoring of the evolution of a leaking pipeline.

Paper # 4 describes an integrated imaging tool in which accurate modelling via Finite Difference Time Domain method and model based tomographic inversion via Truncated Singular Value Decomposition are combined and presents the capabilities of the imaging tool of allowing improved interpretations of complex scenarios such as those occurring in forensics.

Paper # 5 presents a theoretical analysis of the reconstruction performances in model based imaging of buried objects and introduces a new multi-resolution non-linear inversion method based on the exploitation of wavelet expansions.

Paper # 6 addresses the emerging topic of radiofrequency detection of concealed objects via radar imaging and presents and novel and simple model based inversion tool.

Paper # 7 presents a new model based inversion method specifically tailored to tackle non-linear inverse scattering problems arising in subsurface imaging in presence of lossy scenarios.
