Abstract : Geophysical surveys were conducted at solid waste management units (SWMU's) 14100 and 17104, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, Crane, Indiana. The purpose of the surveys was (1) to detect and delineate the locations of lithium batteries reported to be buried in SWMU 14100 and (2) to detect and delineate the locations of electrical capacitors reported to be buried at SWMU 17104. The locations of these objects are needed so they can be excavated for removal to a permanent treatment or disposal site. Electromagnetic, magnetic, and ground penetrating radar survey methods were used at SWMU 14100. All the surveys performed at SWMU 14100 indicate an anomalous zone inside a rectangular area approximately 50 ft wide and 60 ft long. The size, shape, and intensity of the anomalies are consistent with the size, composition, and estimated depth of burial of the lithium batteries. The location of the anomalous area lies within an area defined by three metal poles. SWMU 17104 was surveyed using a cesium magnetometer. The results of the survey indicate four distinct, relatively small (about 2 to 3-ft diameter) anomalies and one large, 2O ft diameter, anomaly. The size of the four small anomalies are consistent with the size and depth of burial of the capacitors. (AN)
