Abstract/Summary

Enhanced knowledge of archaeological residues is important for the long-term curation and understanding of a diminishing heritage. There are certain geologies and soils which can complicate the collection and interpretation of heritage remote sensing data. In some of these 'difficult' areas traditional detection techniques have been unresponsive. DART will develop a deeper understanding of the contrast factors and detection dynamics within 'difficult' areas. This will allow the identification of appropriate sensors and conditions for feature detection. the successful detection of features in 'difficult' areas will provide a more complete understanding of the heritage resource which will impact on research, management and development control.
