Abstract:

Samples of malodorous air and dredged material were collected during the period July-October 1975 at confined disposal sites at the following locations Buffalo, N. Y., Milwaukee, Wis., Mobile, Ala., York Harbor, Maine, Houston, Tex., Detroit, Mich., and Anacortes, Wash. Odorous compounds in the air samples were identified by gas chromatographymass spectrometry, while the detection threshold, intensity, and character of the various odors were determined by experienced odor panelists using a dynamic, and granula media cartridges, and a general methodology for the design of containment facilities as solid-liquid separation systems was formulated.
