Demining Dogs in Colombia – A Review of Operational Challenges, Chemical Perspectives, and Practical Implications

Paola Tiedemann, Mario Chavez

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This review seeks to bring together a description of chemical interactions of the environment with respect to landmine odor signatures, as well as mine detection dog operational perspectives for this specific detection task. The aim is to highlight that given the limited knowledge on the subject, there is a research gap that needs to be attended in order to efficiently establish optimal operating conditions for the reliable performance of mine detection dogs in Colombian demining field applications.
