  author={A. Rathore and T. Weldon},
Abstract : A simplified 1-dimensional transmission light model of electromagnetic waves propagation in mine fields is considered. This model might be used as a first indicator of the presence of land mines. Next, the 2D inverse algorithm would image mines. It is shown that this 1-dimensional model is in general agreement with published Army data.
