The use of ground-penetrating radar to probe the upper 2 m ofthe earth's surface (Mellett, 1990) is expanding into a variety of fields as more sophisticated hardware and software permit highresolution applications not possible with earlier GPR equipment. A number of recent publications attest to the success of GPR in the location of human remains, in archaeological studies, and in law enforcement applications (Bevan, 1991; Davenport et al, 1989; Killam, 1990; Mellett, 1990, Mellett and Geismar, 1990, Unterberger, this volume). This paper will describe the use of GPR in historical cemeteries, Potter's fields (burial areas for the indigent), at an American Indian archaeological site, and in a police investigation of a missing person. All surveys discussed here involve localities within the United States.
