Abstract:

The Training Range Environmental Evaluation and Characterization System TREECS was developed to forecast the fate of and risk from munitions constituents MC, such as high explosives HE and metals, within and transported from firingtraining ranges to surface water and ground-water. The Chemical Transformation Simulator CTS was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to provide physicochemical properties of complex organic chemicals. TREECS requires such properties for predicting environmental fate of MC. This study validated the capability of TREECS and CTS to predict MC HE ROX concentrations In receiving waters down-gradient of trainingfiring ranges for three installations.
