dc.description.abstractfrom the introduction, ". . .The degradation processes for starch-based plastics following burial in modern sanitary landfills is not well known. The objective of this study is to measure the rate and extent of deterioration of starch-based and control plastics in a municipal solid waste landfill. The composition of the MSW buried at the landfill was determined and environmental conditions at the burial site were measured to determine if favorable conditions existed for degradation to proceed. Both physical and chemical tests were conducted to measure the extent of deterioration of starch-based and control plastics during the 24 months burial in a municipal solid waste landfill. . ."en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe works contained within this collection are the final products of a joint collaboration between the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SOMAS); the MASIC Library and the Preservation Department. The project was conducted during the winter through summer 2013 academic semesters, and its focus was to convert older, archival records generated by SOMAS and maintained within the University Libraries to accessible, electronic resources in support of research and learning. All works are based on the original, analog (paper) records as released by SOMAS, except where born digital only records have been loaded to the system. All works have been preserved for historic purposes, please see the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Library for assistance in viewing the analog originals upon which this project is based.en_US
