Abstract

Clutter, which is occurred by noise which has more intensive reflection than the buried objects such as noise of the transmitter and receiver antennas and the ground surface reflection interference, makes the identification of targets in Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Aim of this paper is to achieve a novel, more effective and faster clutter reduction method by using Lifting Wavelet Transform (LWT). LWT is applied on various scenarios and compared with Stationary Wavelet Transform (SWT) which is used very often in clutter and noise removal. In conclusion, LWT provides better and faster results.
