Abstract

This paper deals with a three-dimensional thermal model for landmine detection problems and an inverse problem
for reconstructing the physical parameters of buried objects. Moreover, solutions are given for the estimation of
the soil thermal di®usivity and meteorological parameters, needed for solving the inverse problem. The paper
describes the main fundamental principles of thermal modelling for buried object identi¯cation and illustrates
the results on data acquired from a real mine¯eld, together with qualitative and quantitative results illustrating
the validity of the model.
