This project evaluates the environmental consequences on soil health when exposed to different emerging contaminants (ECs).
As part of the project, a 155mm projectile filled with IHE was detonated and any remaining explosive residue was collected so that their distribution patterns and concentrations could be evaluated. Based on the data, a toxicity indicator is being developed to evaluate the impacts of these compounds on soil. Soil evaluation techniques will be used to determine the soil tolerability for different EC substances.
