Abstract : THE PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED IN RESPONSE TO A VERBAL REQUEST FROM THE U.S. ARMY MEDICAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT COMMAND. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS A CONTINUATION OF THE WORK BEGUN UNDER CONTRACT DAMD-17-75-C-5069. A PORTION OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS UNINTERRUPTED CONTINUATION STUDIES OF EXPERIMENTS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY (E.G, PLANT GROWTH & DIMP LYSIMETER TYPE) & THE REMAINING PORTION IS WORK TO BE INITIATED (E.G., DCPD LYSIMETER STUDIES). CURRENTLY A SELECT GROUP OF PLANTS ARE BEING EXPOSED TO DIMP & DCPD IN A SOIL CULTURE SYSTEM TO DETERMINE THEIR EFFECTIVE LEVELS AS TO PHYTOTOXICITY & BlOACCUMULATION IN THIS GROWTH MEDIUM. COMPLETION OF THIS TASK, AS WELL AS THE UTILIZATION OF SEEDS FROM THIS TASK IN FURTHER STUDIES, ARE INCLUDED IN THE PROPOSED EFFORT. A SECOND AREA OF STUDY CURRENTLY UNDERWAY, & TO BE CONTINUED, RELATES TO THE MANNER IN WHICH THE CONTAMINANT COMPOUNDS MIGRATE THROUGH SOIL.
