This paper outlines an approach to extrude two-dimensional existing information to support the prediction of subsurface discrete objects. The goal of this study is to develop one part of a toolkit to generate realistic, simulated subsurface material and property distributions supporting detection of surface and subsurface explosives. A sample one-meter cubic grid of heterogeneous media is simulated along with expected deviations. We explain the method used to generate a volume of soil, number of geologic features included (if any), and location. This method is expected to be used to depict a larger surface area based on representative limited visual and laboratory data. The soil volume will be used to exercise models providing a signature of subsurface media allowing the simulation of detection by various sensors of buried and surface ordnance.
