Abstract. The problem of estimating the dielectric permittivity and the electric conductivity of the soil starting from GPR measurements is addressed. A new estimation procedure is proposed and checked against synthetic data generated by a FDTD forward solver. A two-dimensional geometry and a two-layered background medium are considered.
