The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory and Defence Research and Development Canada-Valcartier have partnered to improve the understanding of the distribution and fate of propellant residues on military training ranges. Field studies were conducted to estimate the propellant residue mass deposited per round fired from various munitions as well as residues from the field disposal of excess training propellants. Experiments were conducted to measure the rate of release of nitroglycerin and dinitrotoluenes after deposition.
