Abstract : THIS IS A PROGRESS REPORT ON AEROJET'S STUDIES OF EXPERIMENTS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY (E.G., PLANT GROWTH AND DIMP AND DCPD LYSIMETER TESTS). TESTS ARE IN PROGRESS TO DETERMINE THE STABILITY OF DIMP AND DCPD IN INTIMATE CONTACT WITH MOISTENED TOP SOIL. THE ANALYTICAL METHOD PROPOSED FOR DCPD WILL REQUIRE SOME MODIFICATION. THREE OF THE FIVE SOILS TO BE USED IN THE LYSIMETER EXPERIMENTS HAVE BEEN OBTAINED, PROCESSED AND LOADED INTO SIX LYSIMETERS. DISTILLED WATER HAS BEEN PASSED THROUGH ALL OF THEM. TEN PLANTS OF ONE PLANT EACH OF THE PLANTS ENUMERATED IN LAST MONTHS' REPORT HAVE BEEN STARTED IN WATER CULTURE BATHS. PLANT TEST TUBS WERE INOCULATED WITH CONTAMINANTS, CONDITIONS AND PHYTOTOXIC SYMPTOMS WERE NOTED. JMD
