Abstract : On 5 January 1993, laboratory debris/soils and munitions from WWI chemical warfare (CW) agent studies at American University were discovered in the Spring Valley development in Washington, D.C. Ninety-eight separate items/samples, including nine intact munitions, were packaged and delivered by the Technical Escort Unit (TEU) to the U.S. Army Edgewood Research, Development and Engineering Center for chemical characterization. This report summarizes the analytical results obtained on the samples submitted from the Spring Valley site. It identifies the various samples delivered for analysis and describes the analytical methodology used to identify and confirm the chemicals contained in each sample. Spectra for each sample in which chemicals were identified are included in the appendices.... American University, Operation Safe Removal, Spring Valley, Washington, D.C..
