Abstract:

In 1994 Naval Air Adak Station Adak was re-designated as Naval Air Facility Adak and subsequently was directed to close under the Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1995. NAF Adak has been in caretaker status since 31 March 1997 when it operationally closed. The Navy is facilitating private-party economic reuse on Adak under a land exchange agreement that will transfer a portion of the current military reservation from the federal government to the Aleut Corporation. The administrative oversite for the transition process is the responsibility of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Environmental Field Activity, Northwest. EFA During the week of 14 June 1999 EFA hosted the Naval Research Laboratory, and others, in a driving and walking tour of many of the ranges and areas of concern for UXO contamination. This report addresses our evaluation of the potential for use of automated geophysical survey technologies such as MTADS for UXO investigations on Adak.
