Paper Abstract

The problem of low metal content mine characterization form broadband electromagnetic induction (BEMI) data is addressed. A stochastic model describing the spatial distribution of clutter is developed and methods for estimating and removing this unwanted interference are described and tested. After removing the clutter from the signal, a technique is introduced for extracting from BEMI data information describing the location, orientation and structure of the buried object. Examples are provided for spherical and ellipsoidal mines.
