An in–depth primer on the capabilities and limitations of various techniquesfor detecting buried objects

Buried object detection challenges are encountered in a variety of fields, from military applications to crime scene investigations. Buried objects can be detected via many techniques, most of which are specific to the type of object and its surrounding material. Subsurface Sensing provides a deep understanding of this multidisciplinary research area, presenting theory along with applications and existing technology.

The book begins with a review of buried object detection problems, as well as the most recent developments in sensor system hardware and software technologies and the need for advanced signal and imaging techniques. Covering both primary and auxiliary sensors, this book examines the systems based on electromagnetic, acoustic, infrared, and chemical methods, along with providing pros and cons such as operating principles, strengths, limitations, and feasibilities. Readers will gain the fundamentals necessary to:

  • Comprehend the most widely used sensors electromagnetic induction, ground penetrating radar, and microwave tomography

  • Utilize sensor technologies that use biological and chemical methods, nuclear quadrupole resonance, and infrared and hyperspectral systems

  • Implement multi–sensor approaches in a wide range of applications to reach the best detection performance

Subsurface Sensing is essential reading for senior undergraduate/graduate students, practitioners, specialists, and academicians involved in the design and implementation of buried object detection sensors.
