In this paper results are presented of a study on the performance of a dual-sensor landmine detector and its dependency on soil moisture. The detector was used on a trial site in the K5 mine belt in Cambodia. Soil samples were taken from the trial lane, as well as GPR measurements. The data obtained from these soil samples and field measurements are integrated into a model for soil moisture content that is correlated with the land mine detector performance.
