A method of moments (MoM) analysis is developed for electromagnetic scattering from a dielectric body of revolution (BOR) embedded in a layered medium (the half-space problem constituting a special case). The layered-medium parameters can be lossy and dispersive, of interest for simulating soil. To make such an analysis tractable for the wide-band (short-pulse) applications of interest here, we have employed the method of complex images to evaluate the Sommerfeld integrals characteristic of the dyadic layered-medium Green's function. Example wide-band scattering results are presented, wherein fundamental wave phenomenology is elucidated. Of particular interest, we consider wide-band scattering from a model plastic mine, buried in soil, with the soil covered by a layer of snow
