Title Wide Area Assessment (WAA) for Marine Munitions and Explosives of Concern.
Publication Date Mar 2012
Media Count 52p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract Well-developed standardized methodologies and approaches for assessment of terrestrial munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) exist; however, there are currently no standardized approaches for wide area assessment (WAA) of MEC in freshwater or marine environments. The objective of this demonstration was to address the lack of a standardized approach for detecting and locating underwater MEC over large areas. To accomplish this objective, Tetra Tech EC, Inc. (TtEC) developed an approach utilizing multiple underwater detection and mapping technologies and instruments to acquire data sets, which were then used to evaluate ordnance-related conditions and geophysical features representing potential underwater MEC. The platform used for collecting magnetometer data was TtEC s Marine Gradiometer Array (MGA), which houses instrumentation demonstrated to be effective for the location and identification of MEC in marine or freshwater environments.
