Abstract: The Training Range Environmental Evaluation and Characterization System (TREECS™) was developed for the U. S. Army to forecast the fate of and risk from munitions constituents (MC) (e.g., high explosives and metals), within, and transported from, firing/training ranges to surface water and groundwater. The military footprint of the United States (U.S.) in the Arctic region falls within the state of Alaska, where the U.S. Army manages approximately 10% of all active Army training lands worldwide. Primary recalcitrant contaminants of concern at active and previously-used training ranges include energetics, high explosives, and heavy metals. There are limited management tools for assessing contaminant fate and transport and identifying risks in Arctic environments. TREECS™ can handle a wide variety of site conditions and has been applied to a variety of temperate sites. However, previous versions had limitations for application to Arctic conditions. The work reported herein was conducted to overcome these limitations. This report describes the changes implemented in TREECS™ for handling Arctic conditions as well as application test results.
