Abstract:

Results of a comprehensive, integrated geophysical investigation of burial site 3-A at the Defense Depot Ogden, Utah DDOU, are presented. DDOU has been active since 1941, with burial site 3 used for chemical agent disposal. Subsite 3-A was used for disposal of items which included US Military Chemical Surety Materials CSM. Investigations of this subsite have been ongoing since 1981 including groundwater monitoring, limited geophysical investigations, excavation, and trenching. The geophysical investigations presented in this report were designed to detect anomalous conditions and clarify previous work performed at the site. The geophysical program included ground penetrating radar, electromagnetic conductivity, and magnetics. The results of the investigation indicated six areas that were given high priority for further investigations due to the concurrence of anomalous conditions from all the tests performed. In addition to these six areas, there were several smaller areas that were given a lower priority for further analysis based on the detection of anomalous conditions from any one test performed.
