Crosswell radar data were collected among three wells in a laboratory tank filled with dry sand. Embedded within the sand was a long plastic box, which was the target for the data collection. Two datasets were collected between each pair of wells, making a total of six datasets. The frequencies in the data ranged from 0.5 to 1.5 gigahertz, and the peak frequency was 0.9 gigahertz. The data are well suited for evaluating various processing algorithms, and the data linearly scale to typical field conditions.
