Vapor space characterization of waste tank 241-TX-118 (in situ) : results from samples collected on 9/7/94 ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This report describes inorganic and organic analyses results from in situ samples obtained from the headspace of the Hanford waste storage Tank 241-TX-118 (referred to as Tank TX-118). The results described here were obtained to support safety and toxicological evaluations. A summary of the results for inorganic and organic analytes is listed in Table 1. Detailed descriptions of the results appear in the text. Quantitative results were obtained for the inorganic compounds ammonia (NH[sub 3]), nitrogen dioxide (NO[sub 2]), nitric oxide (NO), hydrogen cyanide (CHN), and water (H[sub 2]O). Sampling for sulfur oxides (SO[sub x]) was not requested. In addition, quantitative results were obtained for the 39 TO-14 compounds plus an additional 13 analytes. Hexane, normally included in the additional analytes, was removed because a calibration standard was not available during analysis of Tank TX-118 SUMMA[trademark] canisters. Of these, 12 were observed above the 5-ppbv reporting cutoff. Fourteen tentatively identified compounds (TICs) were observed above the reporting cutoff of (ca.) 10 ppbv and are reported with concentrations that are semiquantitative estimates based on internal-standard response factors. The 10 organic analytes with the highest estimated concentrations are listed in Table 1 and account for approximately 86% of the total organic components in Tank TX-118. Permanent gas analysis was not conducted on the tank-headspace samples. Tank TX-118 is on both the Ferrocyanide and Organic Watch List

Evaluate and Characterize Mechanisms Controlling Transport, Fate and Effects of Army Smokes in an Aerosol Wind Tunnel. Transport, Transformations, Fate and Terrestrial Ecological Effects of Fog Oil Obscurant Smokes ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The terrestrial transport, chemical fate, and ecological effects of fog oil (FO) smoke obscurants were evaluated under controlled wind tunnel conditions. The primary objectives of this research program are to characterize and assess the impacts of smoke and obscurants on: 1) natural vegetation characteristic of U.S. Army training sites in the United States; 2) physical and chemical properties of soils representative of these training sites; and 3) soil microbiological and invertebrate communities. Impacts and dose/responses were evaluated based on an exposure scenario, including exposure duration, exposure rate, and sequential cumulative dosing. Key to understanding the environmental parameters such as relative humidity and wind speed on airborne aerosol characteristics and deposition to receptor surfaces. Direct and indirect biotic effects were evaluated using five plant species and three soil types. Fog oil enhanced the microbial activities in most of the metabolic parameters evaluated. A cumulative dose of fog oil exposure stimulated soil respiration slightly and increased nitro-bacter population in Palouse soil, and greatly increased soil enzyme activity in both Palouse and Burbank soil. Earthworm bioassays indicated no adverse effect of fog oil with exposures up to 800 micrograms/sq. cm soil. In vitro studies, where fog oil was uniformly amended to soil, showed earth- worm survival to be 100% until an exposure of approx. 3600 micrograms/sq. cm (a soil concentration of 285 micrograms FO/g) was reached

This report describes inorganic and organic analyses results from samples obtained from the headspace of the Hanford waste storage Tank 241-BY-108 (referred to as Tank BY-108). The results described here were obtained to support safety and toxicological evaluations. A summary of the results for inorganic and organic analytes is listed in Table 1. Detailed descriptions of the results appear in the text. Quantitative results were obtained for the inorganic compounds ammonia (NH[sub 3]), nitrogen dioxide (NO[sub 2]), nitric oxide (NO), and water vapor (H[sub 2]O). Trends in NH[sub 3] and H[sub 2]O samples indicated a possible sampling problem. Sampling for hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and sulfur oxides (SO[sub x]) was not requested. In addition, the authors looked for the 40 TO-14 compounds plus an additional 15 analytes. Of these, 17 were observed above the 5-ppbv reporting cutoff. Also, eighty-one organic tentatively identified compounds (TICs) were observed above the reporting cutoff (ca.) 10 ppbv, and are reported with concentrations that are semiquantitative estimates based on internal standard response factors. The nine organic analytes with the highest estimated concentrations are listed in Summary Table 1 and account for approximately 48% of the total organic components in the headspace of Tank BY-108. Three permanent gases, hydrogen (H[sub 2]), carbon dioxide (CO[sub 2]), and nitrous oxide (N[sub 2]O) were also detected. Tank BY-108 is on the Ferrocyanide Watch List
