Title:
The effect of sorption and biodegradation on the migration of munition compounds in groundwater and soil environments
Author:
Toze S, Patterson B, Zappia L, Power T, Davis GB
Year:
1999

Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Stainless steel columns containing weathered basalt were used for sorption studies to estimate the mobility of munition residues (e.g. p-nitrotoluene) in the aquifer material according to Patterson et al. (1996).
