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 apparati were loaded with reconstructed soil profiles from various sampling locations. These locations yielded several different soil types. Samples of DIMP (ME-14C) and DCPD (X-14C) of 3.05 millicuries per millimole and 3.04 millicuries per millimole were obtained from New England Nuclear Corporation and used in soil samples. Yielded data from the 1, 8 and 20 ppm DIMP growth tests has been examined. (MM)
