About this book

A consequence of munitions production, testing, and firing, is that high explosives and propellants still remain in the environment. This book details the current state-of-the-science of the ecotoxicology of explosives and unexploded ordinance, and its future research. It includes ecotoxicological effects measurement in different species, environmental risk assessment procedures for sites contaminated with explosives, modeling, and case studies. The book also covers how ecotoxicological data can be used towards the development of recommendations for sustaining range activities while ensuring environmental stewardship and regulatory compliance.
