Abstract : This document has been prepared for the U.S. Army to support the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program. This report describes the results of a comprehensive probabilistic assessment of the frequency and magnitude of chemical agent release associated with the storage of chemical munitions at eight U.S. Army installations. Both internal accident initiators (e.g., human error) and external accident initiators (e.g., earthquakes) were analyzed. Keywords: Chemical stockpile, Chemical munitions, Storage of chemical munitions, Risk analysis, Hazards analysis, Probabilistic risk assessment.
