Paper Abstract

We present dispersive soil finite difference time domain wave propagation situations to study the effects of realistic multilayered soil moisture on modulated short pulse ground penetrating radar mine detection excitations. Our conclusions suggest the amount of water and application time - as a function of soil hydraulic conductivity - that is necessary for modifying the ground to most effectively detect non-metallic anti-personnel mines.
