Abstract : This is a progress report on aerojets' studies of experiments currently underway (E.G., plant growth and DIMP and DCPD lysimster tests). Tests are still in progress to determine the stability of DIMP and DCPD in intimate contact with top soil. The five different soils have been obtained for use in the lysimeter test. Four have been processed for teaching experiments, the fifth is currently being loaded. The plants described in the last monthly report have been exposed to DIMP for 44 days and to DCPD for 39 days. In the most recently revised protocol, the plant groupings have been modified and an additional group, aquatic plants, has been added. A license has been granted to possess radioactive material (40 millicuries of carbon-14) for use in plant tracer studies).
