This is one of a series of the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP live site demonstrations of advanced geophysical classification AGC technologies for Munitions Response MR. This demonstration was designed to evaluate the use of AGC methodology during a Remedial Investigation RI at Munitions Response Program Site UXO 01 at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center MCAGCC at Twentynine Palms, California. During this demonstration, Arcadis conducted dynamic surveys with the MetalMapper and cued data with the TEMTADS. The cued TEMTADS data was used to classify targets as either targets of interestTOI or non-TOI. Arcadis developed a unique approach to characterizing the nature and extent of munitions and explosives of concern MEC during the RI through the use of the Validate Library tool within UX-Analyze Advanced. This approach used cluster analysis to identify unique clusters of anomalies that were intrusively investigated to characterize the nature and extent of MEC when the number of digs was limited to approximately 40 targets.
