Abstract : This manual provides interim guidance to military engineering personnel in selecting and using materials for alleviating dust and for waterproofing soils in support of operations on expedient airfields and roads in the theater of operations. The problems of dust and water pertinent to military operations on unsurfaced airfields and roads are defined, and the objectives and limitations of soil surface treatments to alleviate these problems are stated. General procedures for applying a dust palliative or soil water proofer are outlined, and the implications of these procedures to the ultimate selection of a material are presented. Various types of materials for treating soil surfaces to control dust and/or waterproof soil are described. Criteria to aid in the selection and use of a material, and various factors which may influence the final choice of a material are presented.
