Introduction

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is an active non-invasive method that is typically used to investigate archeological features that are buried in the ground. Here, we employ it in a different environment, which is a fossil-bearing cave in Spain (Bermejo, et al. 2020). It is called the Sima del Elefante/Peluda Cave, which is discovered in the late 1800s, when a railroad “trench” was dug in the mountains to make a gently sloping grade for the trains’ tracks in Atapuerca, north of Burgos, Spain. A GPR survey was done in the railroad trench above the Peluda Cave and adjacent to the Sima del Elefante Cave (Bermejo, et al. 2020). There has been some success using GPR in caves elsewhere using antenna frequencies between 50–270 MHz range but these surveys typically have had limited resolution (Bermejo, et al. 2020; Esmaeili, et al. 2020; Gosar and Čeru, 2016; Gosar, 2012; and Chamberlain, et al. 2000). The antenna frequency used here was 270MHz, which provided a good resolution an...
