dc.descriptionTechnical Report-
dc.description.abstractRaytheon Polar Services Company implemented two proof-of-concept waste handling methods for testing during the austral summers spanning 2010 to 2013 at Pegasus Airfield, McMurdo, Antarctica. These methods included a portable waste transfer tank and a waste incineration method. Testing and modification of these methods took place from 2010 to 2013 to determine the feasibility of long-term use of each method. Data for the actual waste water production at the runway was limited before the start of these projects and was es-timated to determine proper sizing of the two methods used. During proof-of-concept testing of these methods, a more accurate determination of the waste water production was obtained as well. This is invaluable data for developing a long-term solution to handle the wastewater produced at the airfield. Both of these methods proved to be viable options dependent on the amount and type of logistical support available.-
