Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to study low to high frequency 3 kHz to 30 MHz electromagnetic EM methods for three-dimensional 3-D, quantitative and qualitative, characterizing and imaging of the un-perturbed and perturbed e.g. by man or nature ocean environment. These long-term goals include the immediate goal of this project, which as stated in the title is to develop imaging methods for detection of buried mines in the surf zone and for detection of buried ordnance . The approach if successful could lead to spin-off methods for solving corresponding commercial and civilian problems such as 1 finding buried cables, pipes and other buried objects 2 characterizing soils for moisture content or liquid contaminants. 3 and new method for geophysical applications where improved 3-D and quantitative imaging are desired.
