Phenomenological models for landscape signatures : review and recommendations
Ballard, Jerrell Ray, 1965-; Mason, George L.; Smith, James A.; Balick, Lee K.
Technical ReportAbstract: This report reviews, evaluates, and recommends atmospheric, vegetation and water, and soil models that use physics to aid in understanding the impact that the natural environment has on the sensors that are commonly applied to the mine detection problem (either surface or buried). The report lists important predictive high-resolution atmospheric, vegetation and water, and soil models. Priority models are evaluated to indicate their strengths and weaknesses. The report recommends areas needing further development to fill the gaps in predicting the effects of critical environmental factors on developing mine detection sensors.
