Abstract

The purpose of this research is to develop an in situ method to biodegrade high explosives in the vadose zone. The research project involves the construction of an experimental field site to force an anaerobic treatment zone and thus stimulate indigenous microorganisms to biodegrade the HE. The desired level of treatment is to reduce the HE concentrations to below the RRS2 values.
