Totally agree Domo !

Hey, who was responsible for "edge of atmosphere" nuclear testing etc ... ?

Chaff is what horses eat ... 😎

Globalsecurity.org is a solid place for information on various military and security topics.

You found yourself a very good source.

Thank you .

At least ... "some of it " is OK. 🐤


The question you have to ask is...was it self-terminating chaff?

There's a type they drop from time to time that "self destructs" in mid air. The idea is to keep it from forming a characteristic "chaff tail" on radar.

Had a big big drop over north Alabama a few years back. There was so much azo and aluminum oxide in the air it got hazy. You could watch the chaff smog roll over the valley from the TV station tower cams.

Great info there.

I was not aware of that distinction.

And as such I am sure there is a military need for both.

It is the stuff you guys are bringing your kids up with that should be a concern.

En mass? It's about the size of a human finger when bundled. Just how much do you think is being released?

It's the stuff being dragged up from strip mines that you should be worried about, not chaff.

Agreed there ... drag netting in particular ...!

I was just wondering about the aggregation of aluminium ( aussie spelling ) in the environment.

Not the fall out from a single deployment of chaff.

The wind has patterns and as such deposits stuff in habitual places.

And it's such a tiny amount in every deployment there is no buildup.

They've done studies that show that the amounts required to have an effect on the environment would need essentially continuous releases over years



chaff is released on pretty much a daily basis by aircraft training

Nuff said.....

Except that it's released in different areas. It would have to be released in the same place, for years at a time, until you had millions of drops in the same place.

Nuff said.

Would you like to see the size of a single chaff bundle?



They're usually released in groups, but you're still talking about a tiny amount of material being released.


Awe don't spoil the conspiracy for them what will they do now, oh look for the next one

Why worry


Aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth's crust (after oxygen and silicon) and its most abundant metal. Aluminium makes up about 8% of the crust by mass, though it is less common in the mantle below.


Aluminium is all around you.

We would rip off chaff bundles pretty quick with our BOL chaff rails. They were little wafer packets and I think we had like 60 per rail.

Even with that, I think one aircraft crash puts more metal back into the earth than all the chaff dispersed in a year.

Mmmm. BOL chaff.
