Abstract This report presents the findings of a study conducted by the U.S. Air Force (USAF), Headquarters Air Combat Command (ACC) on the environmental effects of using self-protection chaff and flares in military aircraft training. The objective of the study was to identify and document environmental, health, and safety effects associated with chaff and flare use. The information contained in this report addresses potential effects from chaff and flares use on human health, safety, air quality, physical resources (soil and water), biological resources, land use and visual resources, and cultural resources. Issues related to fires from flare use are also addressed.
