Abstract : This is a progress report on Aerojet's studies of experiments currently underway (e.g., plant growth and DIMP and DCPD lysimeter tests). Lysimeter tests are being performed which permit observation of the mobility of water solutions of DIMP in five different types of soils. Discussion between New England Nuclear Corp. Relative to concentrations methods of trapping, shipping procedures and costs from scintillation counting of samples from teh DIMP and DCPD versus soil compatibility experiments was held. All five species of plants from the 1, 8 and 20 ppm DIMP growth tests have been harvested.
