  • Metal detector handbook for humanitarian demining; a book about metal detectors, covering detection procedures in the field, and the testing evaluation of metal detectors for humanitarian demining

Abstract

This handbook instructs the reader on how to confidently assess their detector's ability in the place where they must work. The problem of electro-magnetic ground is addressed in detail, including advice on how to predict the clearance-depth that will be possible in other areas. The book also includes detailed advice on how to conduct comparative trials of metal detectors.

None of this is theoretical. It is all based on genuine hands-on experience and the solutions are practical to use in the field. The book also includes detailed advice on how to conduct comparative trials of metal detectors.
