Testing and training require the firing of live ammunition, which can result in contamination of ranges by toxic metals and munitions constituents. SERDP and ESTCP efforts are focused on improving the military’s ability to assess and predict human and ecological risk from these contaminants and on providing effective tools and science that enable DoD to manage contaminated sites using a risk-based approach.
This reference book published by CRC Press provides a global assessment of a range of environmental stressors, including pesticides, environmental contaminants, and other emerging chemical threats, and their impact on wildlife populations. The assessment draws on research funded by SERDP and others.
This Navy site provides an overview of the development and use of amphibian ecological risk assessment tools for managers to accurately assess potential risks at wetland sites.
