This paper presents preliminary results of an investigation into the impact of buried objects on the environmental properties and electro-optical spectral characteristics of terrain features. This study focused on the analyses of various sensor information, including hyperspectral and thermal data, collected under a limited set of circumstances; these analyses include laboratory measurements and theoretical computations. A digital terrain model incorporating the relevant physical processes was also constructed to support these investigations. These analyses are particularly relevant to the detection of landmines and the exploitation of hyperspectral sensor data in this application. Results from these analysis efforts will be presented along with example spectral data and computational results.
