Title: Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Air Emission Factors Data

Abstract

Critical military training and testing on lands along the nation’s coastal and estuarine shorelines are increasingly placed at risk because of development pressures in surrounding areas, impairments due to other anthropogenic disturbances, and increasing requirements for compliance with environmental regulations. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) intends to enhance and sustain its training and testing assets and to optimize its stewardship of natural resources through the development and application of an ecosystem-based management approach on DoD installations. To accomplish this goal, particularly for installations in estuarine/coastal environments, the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) launched the Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program (DCERP) as a minimum 10-year effort at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (MCBCL) in North Carolina. The results of the first six years of the program (DCERP1) are presented here.The overarching objectives of DCERP are to: (1) understand the effects of military training activities, infrastructure development, and other coastal military installations; (2) develop models, tools, and indicators to evaluate ecosystem health; and (3) recommend adaptive management strategies to sustain ecosystem natural resources within the context of an active military installation.Spreadsheet file with two sheets, one with excess mixing ratios and concentrations of gaseous and particulate (PM2.5) pollutant species measuredmore » in prescribed burning (PB) plumes, the other with the emission factors (EF) calculated from the former assuming that a) the fuel-carbon content by mass is 42.6 % and b) all fuel-C species produced and emitted during PB had been captured by our measurements. PB experiments were conducted in five different test plots (RB, HA, MF, IEn, IEs), spanning the moisture gradient from semi-mesic loblolly pine forest to wet-mesic loblolly-longleaf pine forest to pond pine pocosin. Each plot contained mechanically treated, hydro-axed fuel in a 100 x 100 m (1 ha) area, whose emissions were compared to those from the surrounding untreated control fuel. The majority of these data were added to MARDIS, but the entire file is provided here for ease of use.« less
