Abstract

The fire ecology range management on the fate & transport of explosives on testing & training ranges was described. The degree to which burning reduces surface and near-surface explosive residue is determined. The depth to which burning provides effective decomposition of energetic residuals was also determined. The relationship between energetic residue & vegetation density was examined. The thermal decomposition of explosives was also discussed. Eglin soil dried 10 days at room temperature, sieved and sealed in PE bag and TNT was added as acetone soln and tumbled 1 hr, 0°C air dried 1 h, tumbled 24h at 0°C. TNT decomposition Arrhenius plots was also shown.
