چکیده
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is one of the non-destructive and quick geophysical methods that can give high resolution and continuous sections of the subsurface by transmitting, reflecting, and recording of EM waves with high frequency. In this study, the performance of the method is investigated for displaying the water table and the transition zone. A GPR survey, composed of a few profiles with the distance more than 700 m (longer than 700 m through a few profiles) with 50 MHz unshielded antenna made by Swedish company "MALA Geoscience" was done in the North East of Nikshahr on the bed of a local dried river to determine its water table. In this paper, at first, the important parameters of the water table, the general principles of GPR for displaying of the water table and its structures were examined. Then, the necessary processing for the environmental noises of the region is described. After applying these processing, the GPR sections show strong, continuous, and sharp reflections from the water table and the transition zone. The processing used in this study was included initial processing in GPR and suitable filters for the removal of coherent and non-coherent noises.

Abstract
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is one of the non-destructive and quick geophysical methods that can give high resolution and continuous sections of the subsurface by transmitting, reflecting, and recording of EM waves with high frequency. In this study, the performance of the method is investigated for displaying the water table and the transition zone. A GPR survey, composed of a few profiles with the distance more than 700 m (longer than 700 m through a few profiles) with 50 MHz unshielded antenna made by Swedish company "MALA Geoscience" was done in the North East of Nikshahr on the bed of a local dried river to determine its water table. In this paper, at first, the important parameters of the water table, the general principles of GPR for displaying of the water table and its structures were examined. Then, the necessary processing for the environmental noises of the region is described. After applying these processing, the GPR sections show strong, continuous, and sharp reflections from the water table and the transition zone. The processing used in this study was included initial processing in GPR and suitable filters for the removal of coherent and non-coherent noises.
