Archaeological Geophysical Prospection

Geophysical Prospection (GPR) of the Roman forum in Carnuntum / Austria (Malå Geoscience)An increase in measurement efficiency of geophysical prospection methods is needed in order to render their archaeological application more economical and therefore attractive for large scale prospection. New technology concerning the development of multichannel instruments and advanced positioning and navigation systems offers novel possibilities for large-scale geophysical archaeological prospection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main objectives of the Programme Line ‘Archaeological Geophysical Prospection’ are the development of motorized multichannel instruments combined with advanced positioning and navigation systems and appropriate data processing and visualization tools. In this way the measurement efficiency of near-surface geophysical survey methods for large-scale, high-resolution archaeological prospection can be significantly improved.
