In this paper we have used a numerical method (Prony) to analyze TEM decay curves to obtain a set of exponential decay time-constants and their corresponding residues. Using a commercially available field data acquisition system, we have acquired fast transient TEM data from UXO. We show that these data can be analyzed and displayed in a way that is simple to understand and useful for classifying the TEM response.
