How do you use GPR to scan for a buried tank?

The GPR system is mounted on a wheeled cart (about the size of a lawn mower) which is pushed by the GPR operator. As the radar unit is moved over the surface of the ground, scan data is collected and interpreted by the operator. When the operator detects a tank, he marks the location with water soluble marking paint.

Tank has been detected and its location has been marked.
