Ground penetrating radar is a high resolution geophysical technique that can provide fluid, lithology, geometry and permeability information for environmental assessment, reservoir geology, petroleum engineering and construction. Frequency dependent radar pulse propagation is modelled in conjunction with dielectric mixing laws. Several examples are enhanced and interpreted using adapted seismic techniques. Since borehole radar will be especially valuable in horizontal holes, surface radar examples can be used to identify reservoir applications. Necessary developments in borehole radar hardware are outlined.
