Infrared techniques can be used to detect buried objects such as landmines or shallow-buried waste, by taking advantage of the diurnal heating cycle. Improvements in performance may be expected with the addition of a microwave source to heat the ground and the buried objects. We describe an experiment to demonstrate the heating effect and a two-dimensional model which describes the phenomena involved. It is suggested that variations in heating with angle of incidence and microwave wavelength may be useful discriminants.
