Abstract
The proposed Phase II project is to provide an advanced operational waterborne transport modeling capability of chemical agents within four-dimensional marine and fresh water environments. Based upon the findings of Phase I, we propose to further enhance the operational capabilities of ASA's Waterborne Chemical Transport Model, relative to weaponized chemical agents, by developing comprehensive analytical and numerical expressions of the kinetics of chemical agents under the influence of varying environmental parameters characteristic of a waterborne environment and through the development of advanced numerical methods and databases appropriate for an operational environment. The specific weaponized chemical agents to be investigated during this study will be Tabun, Sarin, Soman, Cyclosarin, VX, Distilled Sulfur Mustard, Thickened Tabun, Thickened Soman, Thickened Cyclosarin, Thickened Distilled Sulfur Mustard, and Thickened VX. With such advancements at the conclusion of Phase II the model could find wide use by the DoD, DHS, and industry.
