Abstract:

Listings and summaries of all reported Air Force fuel dumps between 1 October 1974 and 31 March 1975 are given and are broken down by major command and by aircraft type. The distributions of fuel dumps by geographical area, size, and altitude are also examined. Several geographical areas in which fuel dumping is most likely to have a significant environmental impact are identified. Most fuel dumps fall into one of two distinct classes and can be studied by investigating in detail a typical member of the class. The implications of this simplification for the future conduct of the fuel dumping project are discussed.
