Petroleum Geology of Libya

Libya has the biggest petroleum reserves of any state in Africa and because creation started in 1961 over 20 billion barrels of oil were produced. Libya is scheduled to arrive the mid-point of depletion of reserves in 2001 and this offers a well timed aspect at which to study the country of petroleum exploration in Libya.

Nonpartisan judgment thus was critical to the evaluations presented and to the stated tasks of the study. Innovative Mine Detection Systems 17 To make the judgments about detector performance, we identified two sets of prominent academic, government, and private-sector scientists with expertise in landmine detection: (1) generalists, with broad and long-standing experience in the landmine detection community, and (2) specialists, currently at the forefront of developing specific cutting-edge detection technologies.

This chapter describes the difficulties of predicting the performance of innovative mine detection methods and our method for assessing the potential of innovative systems. It then describes each type of innovative technology and evaluates its potential to improve on existing EMI detection systems. 1 in the Summary provides an overview of the technology evaluations. METHOD FOR EVALUATING INNOVATIVE MINE DETECTION SYSTEMS Predicting the potential for an innovative mine detection system to reduce the false alarm rate and increase the probability of detection is an inherently difficult task.

Strengths. These methods are attractive because they do not involve physical contact and can be used from a safe standoff distance. They are lightweight and are effective at scanning wide areas relatively quickly. When deployed from airborne platforms, they are particu- 26 Alternatives for Landmine Detection larly effective for detecting surface mines. Collecting and processing the signals temporally (as opposed to in “snapshots”) tends to improve performance by tracking diurnal cycles. Limitations.
