This paper addresses the application of ground probing radar (GPR) to detection of groundwater from relatively deep aquifers in a desert environment. An interesting aquifer is the buried valley aquifer due to its potential for storing good quality water and its being common in the Sahara desert. The radar system must be capable of detecting the signal being reflected by relatively deep subterranean surfaces. The reflected signals have very low signal to noise ratio which is improved by
