Magnetic tropical brown soil from Cambodia

A mineralogical examination of a magnetic tropical brown soil from Cambodia and a possible synthetic analogue made with soil from Devon

QuintiQ (formerly DERA) has commissioned several projects on the geological factors affecting the performance of mine detectors in former war zones. A recent report on this topic by the BGS is released here.
