To decrease cost and increase reliability and efficiency of unexploded ordnance (UXO) environmental remediation, government research and development programs and industry efforts seek to establish a practice of UXO location using modern digital survey systems, sound geophysical survey procedures, and postprocessing of data for enhanced detection and discrimination. The new practice will replace most traditional “mag and flag” type UXO location surveys that typically use analog instruments, where all detected targets (anomalies) must be investigated (i.e., excavated).
