This demonstration focused on field validation of commercially-available passive sampling devices PSDs, specifically Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Samplers POCIS, that had recently been optimized for detection and quantification of MCs under environmentally-relevant conditions in laboratory-based studies e.g., Belden et al. 2015. The DoD has custody and responsibility for human safety and environmental stewardship for coastal ranges, many of which have underwater sites that are known to contain underwater military munitions UWMM, such as discarded military munitions DMM and unexploded ordnance UXO, as a result of historic military activities.
