Abstract:

Measurement sites were established in the Mojave Desert China Lake and Death Valley National Monument to obtain empirical data that could be used to more accurately predict the thermal environment of desert dump-stored ordnance solid rocket motors. Data obtained from these measurement sites are presented and analyzed. These data are presented in terms of cumulative probability and maximum-minimum daily temperatures. The environmental criteria determination investigations at NWC are continuing and this report represents only a sample of the vast amount of information available at this Center.
