The objective of this research is to evaluate the applicability of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) method to detect burried objects in the shallow depths using 250 MHz and 800 MHz center frequency antennas. For this purpose, different objects were hurried in several places of a certain test site. GPR data were collected along six paralel profiles using 250 MHz and 800 MHz antennas which are compatible with RAMAC CU II system. The reflections profile data were processed using the computer program ReflexW. After the processing of data, the reflected /scattered reflections on the processed radargrams were examined and the radargrams were interpreted to determine the depths and positions of the objects from the surface. Also, the data obtained from 250 and 800 MHz antennas were compared and the differences between them in terms of resolution were discussed. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
