Abstract:

The major transport and transformation processes affecting the environmental fate of TNT, 2,4-DNT, RDX, and trinitroglycerin were identified. Rate and equilibrium constants for these processes were determined from laboratory studies. These constants were incorporated into a computer model that was programmed to simulate the Holston River, the New River, and Waconda Bay. From these simulations, concentration-time dependent curves were constructed to estimate munition component concentrations at various locations in the receiving water body.
