The objective of this study was to locate land areas in the Continental United States CONUS that were similar in all aspects to selected land areas in other parts of the world. The purpose was to aid in the selection of land mine detection test sites analogous to strategic areas in other parts of the world. An extensive literature search was made to collect information on world soils and climates. Soils types were found in the U.S. that were analogous to those in most parts of the world if only soil depths related to land mine burial requirements were considered. The results of this program task were the source of information used to locate special test sites for a 12-month mine detection evaluation program and to find analog areas that represented European areas were to be conducted.
