ground piercing radar

There is a story on ABC News online
(http://abcnews.go.com/sections/world/DailyNews/gpr991201.html) about the
use of ground piercing radar to locate the skeletal remains of people being
found in those mass graves in Mexico. Does anyone on the list have any
experience using this kind of equipment in paleontology? The story reports
that GPR can penetrate "even thousands of feet in some instances" which
sounds a bit unlikely to me, but what do I know?
