One of the main challenges in processing GPR data is the accurate evaluation of time intervals between signals that are sent and reflected. Small errors in the length of these intervals generate large errors in the thickness of the layers because of the high propagation speed of electromagnetic waves. In this thesis, a new approach for numerical calculation of the time interval between two signals is proposed. Instead of finding the distances between the maxima points of signals, we calculate the distances between the centroids of the signals. The numerical experiments conducted in this thesis show that this new approach provides considerably higher accuracy in finding the layer thickness.
