Abstract: The most important parameter affecting ground-penetrating radar (GPR) measurements is the complex effective relative permittivity because it controls the propagation velocity and the reflection of GPR pulses. Knowing of soils passed through by electromagnetic waves increases accuracy in soil thickness and interface identification. Complex effective relative permittivity of 25 soil samples with textures ranging from loamy sand to silty clay was measured using the two-electrode parallel- plate method...
