Abstract : The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the application and utility of employing Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA) methodologies in a predictive assessment mode. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines normally used for site assessment and site remediation have been applied to predict the environmental impact of proposed testing with graphite flake obscurant materials. This study is intended as a Tier I, screening level, ERA. The Tier I level assessment uses available environmental toxicity data, material fate and effects data, appropriate environmental fate modeling data and a proposed test scenario to predict the possibility of negative impact to the environment under study.
