This book provides an insight into the global practices for environmental management of military live-fire training ranges by combining scientific research with practical solutions to ensure continued training capability. The book is divided into four parts: the first provides background information necessary to understand the scientific principles behind environmental management; the second comprises methodologies for the environmental risk assessment of explosives and munitions; the third collates case studies and innovative management techniques that have been applied to reduce remediation costs; while the final section considers the design of ‘greener or insensitive munitions’ to reduce environmental impact. The book is an essential reference guide for those with a responsibility for environmental management of military training ranges, and who are required to ensure sustainable long-term training capability.
