Abstract:

This data report presents the results of the first phase of a methodology investigation intended to increase the validity of the environmental chamber testing of Army material. This phase involved field exposing material samples in selected natural tropic environments in the Republic of Panama and testing those samples to document changes which occurred as a result of that exposure. Subsequent phases will be conducted in environmental chambers at the Electronic Proving Ground, Fort Huachuca, Arizona, to attempt to duplicate those changes.
