Title

Effect of environmental parameters on the vapor phase concentration of TNT and related compounds in the terrestrial environment

Abstract

"A study was undertaken to determine the effects of land mine configuration and deterioration through aging on the transport of 2,4-DNT, 2,6-DNT and 2,4,6-TNT in soil from buried land mine over long time periods and to monitor the effects of selected parameters such as the soil type, soil organic matter content, ambient temperature, the soil moisture content on vapor concentrations of nitro aromatic explosives. The study also evaluated effects of these parameters on detectability of TNT and DNTs with chemical vapor sensors"--Research Objectives, leaf 9.
