Welcome to Harry Jol’s website. As you may notice this website is about ground penetrating radar research with students and Jol’s courses. Harry involves many students in research trips domestically and abroad. Most recently, he took 4 students to Lithuania in the summer of 2018, and a single student to Lithuania in January of 2019. Harry also leads a Field Seminar class where they conduct a research project over the course of a semester. Jol is nationally recognized for his GPR research and knowledge of GPR techniques.
Jol, accompanied by faculty member Martin Goettl and by students Logan Bergevin, Kelly Jerviss, Cameron Wingren, Hailee Jefferies, and former student Joseph Beck are currently on the Northern coast of Latvia conducting GPR and a topographic study on the sand dunes there. The students originally were traveling around Lithuania conducting geophysical surveys with GPR and ERT, while also doing some geospatial data collection with drones.
Dr. Philip Reeder from Duqesne University in Pennsylvania and Dr. Richard Freund from Christopher Newport University in Virginia were also on the trip. Dr. Freund brought many students from around the country to aid in the research that Jol and his team were conducting. Dr. Reeder brought along his total station and uses it to make highly accurate maps of the research sites and important areas.
Madeline Fuerstenberg is tagging along as a journalist from UW-Eau Claire. She will be publishing her stories and accounts from the trip to The Spectator, an on campus news paper. She was also a team member last year where she participated in the research. For more on Madeline and her articles follow this link.
