Short description: The U.S. Department of Defense and the Army conduct risk assessments to determine safe levels and cleanup target levels for military relevant compounds (MRCs) and to evaluate remediation alternatives to provide the most cost-effective approach to reach target levels. As part of the Army's Installation Restoration Research Program (IRRP), the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) and the US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM) developed a computer-based, modeling- and database-driven analysis system for estimating human and ecological health impacts and risks associated with MRCs and other potential contaminants of concern. The Adaptive Risk Assessment Modeling System (ARAMS™) is based on a widely accepted risk paradigm that integrates exposure and effects assessments to characterize risk.
