This paper addresses the problem of reconstructing geometrical features of 3-D targets embedded into a nonaccessible region from multiview multistatic scattered field data. Sampling methods (SM) are simple and computationally effective approaches to pursue this task. However, their implementation requires a large number of multipolarization sources and probes. Moreover, their performances are often unsatisfactory for aspect-limited measurement configurations and lossy media. In order to tackle these drawbacks, usually faced in subsurface imaging, we propose a simplified and improved formulation based on the physical interpretation of SM. In particular, such a formulation relies on a small number of single polarization probes and exploits multifrequency data, for the first time in the framework of SM. The performances of the resulting approach are verified by monitoring 3-D regions of large extent.
