Tree canopy
  • Found moderate levels of chloroacetic acid in balsam fir foilage on Mt. Mansfield
  • Two samples showed chloroform levels higher than ambient air
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

(1995-06-09 - 1995-06-11) Investigate hypothesis that chloroacetic acids may be involved in forest decline by attempting to replicate findings from Europe of high levels of trichloroacetic in conifer foliage and chloroform enrichment in soil-air from conifer forests
