George Tsoflias uses ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to study electromagnetic wave propogation through geologic formations. One focus is the characterization of subsurface fluid-flow properties and, in particular, the hydraulic properties of fractures. In addition to developing new radar methods and researching radar integration with shallow seismic methods, he is applying radar techniques in collaborative research with KU faculty in hydrogeology, tectonics sedimentology, glaciology, and electrical engineering.
