Abstract : A better understanding of the science and engineering of buried mine detection in (1) offshore and (2) surf zone sediments, leading to safe, standoff detection technologies. This project is part of a leveraged investment program for ONR and APPA offices, which involves SPECWAR and USMC interests, to pursue major researcn thrusts already begun by the authors, that will lead the way to systems development. The work is further leveraged by the cooperation of the SACLANT Undersea Research Center(SACLANTCEN), which will provide cooperating seafloor scientists, research tools and research vessels in a joint effort to research the basic Physics of the governing processes.
