Abstract:

The types of stresses imposed by military activities on the environment are not well known, nor is it possible in most cases to quantify or predict the impact of stresses on a long term basis. A research program is currently being formulated to correct this deficiency. The report was prepared as a preliminary step to identifying research problems which arise as a special consequence of military facilities in cold regions. The subjects discussed include air pollutionIce fog Terrain impactsErosion Permafrost and Water pollution.
