Field observations of weathering Comp B (RDX/TNT 60/40) residue were made on a live-fire training range over four years. The Comp B residue was formed by low-order detonations of 120-mm mortar projectiles. Physical changes were the disaggregation of initially solid chunks into masses of smaller diameter pieces and formation of red phototransformation(More)
Green spaces in cities provide cultural ecosystems services (CES) such as nature connection, wildlife interaction and aesthetic appreciation which can improve aspects of human well-being. Recognising these benefits, researchers are now examining the complex relationship between humans and nature in urban social-ecology. Most studies investigate people’s(More)
We investigated the fate of nitramine and nitroaromatic explosives compounds in surface water to determine how surface water biogeochemistry affects the stability of explosives compounds. Five river water samples and 18.2 MOmega deionized water were spiked with 10 explosives compounds and the samples were held at ambient temperatures (20 degrees C) for 85(More)
A study conducted by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a US public health agency, evaluated ATSDR's risk communication process, specifically the roles and responsibilities, planning, implementation, and coordination of activities in response to illegal indoor spraying of methyl parathion, a hazardous pesticide, in Pascagoula, MS.(More)
The field studies were done with the assistance of Allen Delaney, while Bruce Brockett provided valuable information on the borehole unfrozen zone. Dr. Patrick Black conducted the NMR analysis and Alan Hewitt conducted the ion chromatography analysis. Paul Sellmann and Lawrence Gatto provided useful technical reviews of the report manuscript.
