Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report represents guidelines for planning UXO detection surveys based on a phenomenological approach. The phenomenological evaluation considers the physical characteristics (topography, vegetation, soil type, and moisture) of a site and subdivides the site into areas that have a unique classification for the set of four physical characteristics. Values for three geophysical parameters (electrical conductivity, dielectric permittivity, and magnetic susceptibility) are assigned to each area based on the physical characteristics of that area. Given the physical characteristics, geophysical parameters, and ordnance usage history, a selection of geophysical sensors and platforms are identified that would be appropriate for conducting a UXO detection survey within each area of the site.
