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 SEPTEMBER, 14 C-LABELED DCPD AND DIMP WERE RECEIVED, OXIDATION PRODUCTS OF DCPD WERE INVESTIGATED, THE MOLAR ABSORPTIVITIES OF DCPD AND DIMP WERE MEASURED, AND WORK CONTINUED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACCLIMATED CULTURES IN THE BIOTRANSFORMATION OF DCPD AND DIMP. -BKA
