As part of the ESTCP WAA Pilot Project, Nova Research, Inc. demonstrated a data collection and analysis methodology to support the rapid delineation of areas of UXO contamination within a larger site. Electromagnetic Induction EMI data were collected over the demonstration site along planned transects provided by PNNL in cooperation with SNL and the ESTCP Program Office. These transects were designed based on available archive information to insure that areas of interest matching the design criteria would be sampled with a statistically defensible probability of detection. These data were analyzed to extract anomaly locations and a measure of the anomaly magnitude using an automated anomaly detection methodology. A vehicular-towed array system of EM61 MkIIs NRLs MTADS was deployed for a period of 5 weeks. The system covered 225 lane kilometers of the site and identified 5,779 anomalies. A man-portable EM61 MkII system was concurrently deployed for a period of 6 weeks. The MP EM system covered 178 lane kilometers of the site and identified 3,631 anomalies.
