    Abstract

    We have performed experiments that indicate TNT contamination is present on surfaces exposed to TNT vapor, and that TNT contamination is transferred rapidly between proximate surfaces. Contaminated surfaces continue to be nearly constant sources of TNT vapor for some time after removal of the primary source.
