Language: Russian
Abstract: In the article it is brought the outcomes of theoretical and experimental research of opportunities of subsurface radar probing for decision of problems of engineering - geological researches - definitions of depth of a level of subsurface water, of soil lithologic section structure of aeration zones, depth of deposition and thickness of a layer of oil products formed as a result of various sort of man-caused outflow and also mapping of territories subject to landslide process. It is shown, that use of step-by-step radar probing successfully solves the specified problems, providing a number of essential advantages in comparison to traditional methods of geophysical researches, and in comparison with use of radar subsurface probing with pulse signals.
Key words:  underground probing, radiolocation, ground penetrating radar, geology, soil pollution, subsoil waters surface, lens of oil, ecology.
