1. Goodman, D., 1994. Ground-penetrating radar simulation in Engineering and Archaeology: GEOPHYSICS, 59:224-232.

Paper #1 provides a description of a simple 2D GPR simulator using ray trace methodology with additions to including equipment impulse and directional responses as well as antenna aperture. Example simulations over model structures are shown and a comparisons with a real test structure are given.


2. Goodman, D., Y. Nishimura, and J. D. Rogers, 1995. GPR time slices in archaeological prospection: Archaeological Prospection, 2:85-89.

Paper #2 describes one of the first uses of spatial interpolation for coarsely spaced radar profiles in the construction of time slices. Application of data interpolation for archaeological mapping at several sites in Japan are presented.


3. Goodman, D., Nishimura, Y., Hongo, H and Noriaki N., 2006. Correcting for Topography and the Tilt of the GPR Antenna, Archaeological Prospection , 13, 157-161.

Paper #3 discusses the inline correction of GPR profiles for antenna tilt over sites with topography. Application to mapping of subterranean burial chambers from Kofun period mounds in Japan and comparison with tilt corrected and uncorrected imaging are discussed.


4. Goodman, D, Piro, S., Schneider, K., Nishimura, Y., Hongo, H., Higashi, N., Steinberg, J., and Damiata, B., 2009. GPR Archaeometry in GPR Theory and Applications, ed. H. Jol, Elsevier, ISBN 978-0-444-53348-7, 479-508.

Paper #4 includes application of GPR to imaging archaeological sites. A special section on GPR overlay analysis is formally introduced to describe a method to synthesize the important reflectors from an entire volume of data onto a single 2d image. Overlay analysis examines the relative-strongest-reflector information at each desired level in the dataset which are composed of normalized slices.

Paper #5 the use of multi-channel array systems and the specialized signal processes needed to integrate these dense datasets with different antenna elements is discussed. Application of imaging at several sites using IDS Stream, Mala Mira and 3d-Radar multi-channel systems are shown.
