Abstract : THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH ARE TO CONDUCT LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS THAT WILL PREDICT THE PHOTOCHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATIONS OF DCPD AND DIMP IN THE SOILS AND WATERS OF ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL AND WILL PROVIDE A SEMIQUANTITATIVE EVALUATION OF DECOMPOSITION RATES OF, AND PRODUCTS RESULTING FROM DCPD AND DIMP. DURING AUGUST, SEDIMENT AND WATER SAMPLES WERE COLLECTED AT ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL, ANALYTICAL METHODS WERE INVESTIGATED FOR DCPD AND DIMP, UV ADSORPTION SPECTRA WERE MEASURED AND PRELIMINARY PHOTOCHEMICAL STUDIES WERE INITIATED, AND STUDIES WERE BEGUN TO OBTAIN ACCLIMATED MICROORGANISMS FOR DEGRADATION STUDIES. -BKA
