Title: Velocity estimation by the common-reflection-surface (CRS) method: Using ground-penetrating radar data
Author: Perroud, H

Abstract: In this paper, we describe the use of the common-reflection-surface (CRS) method to estimate velocities from ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data. Applied to multicoverage data, the CRS method provides, as one of its outputs, the time-domain rms velocity map, which is then converted to depth by the familiar Dix algorithm. Combination of the obtained depth-converted velocity map with electrical resistivity in-situ measurements enables us to estimate both water content and water conductivity. These quantities are essential to delineate infiltration of contaminants from the surface after industrial or agricultural activities. The method was applied to GPR data and compared with the classical NMO approach. The results show that the CRS method provides a physically more meaningful velocity field, thus improving the potential of GPR as an investigation tool for environmental studies.
