  1. Biological and medical research with accelerated heavy ions at the Bevalac, 1974--1977. [Planning for use for radiotherapy and as radiation source for diagnostic radiography

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Elam, S. (ed.)

    1977-04-01

    The Bevalac, a versatile high-energy heavy-ion accelerator complex, has been in operation for less than two years. A major purpose for which the Bevalac was constructed was to explore the possibility of heavy-ion teams for therapy for certain forms of cancer. Significant progress has been made in this direction. The National Cancer Institute has recognized the advantages that these and other accelerated particles offer, and heavy ions have been included in a long-term plan for particle therapy that will assess by means of controlled therapeutic tests the value of various modalities. Since accelerated heavy ions became available, the possibility of other contributions, not planned, became apparent. We are developig a new diagnostic method known as heavy-ion radiography that has greatly increased sensitivity for soft-tissue detail and that may become a powerful tool for localizing early tumors and metastases. We have discovered that radioactive beams are formed from fragmentation of stable deflected beams. Use of these autoradioactive beams is just beginning; however, we know that these beams will be helpful in localizing the region in the body where therapy is being delivered. In addition, it has been demonstrated that instant implantation of the radioactive beam allows direct measurements of blood perfusion rates in inaccessible parts of the body, and such a technique may become a new tool for the study of fast hot atom reactions in biochemistry, tracer biology and nuclear medicine. The Bevalac will also be useful for the continuation of previously developed methods for the control of acromegaly, Cushing's disease and, on a research basis, advanced diabetes mellitus with vascular disease. The ability to make small bloodless lesions in the brain and elsewhere with heavy-ion beams has great potential for nervous-system studies and perhaps later for radioneurosurgery.

    Deacon, R; Lubitz, J; Gurnick, M; Newton, M

    1979-01-01

    A study of the use of short-stay hospitals in PSRO areas by Medicare enrollees aged 65 and over for the period 1974 through 1977 revealed that discharge rates increased, average length of stay (ALOS) decreased, and days-of-care rates remained relatively constant in nearly all of the PSRO areas. The data show large variations in hospital use in PSRO areas within States and HEW regions, and suggest that factors within the area are critical determinants of hospital utilization. This study presents important implications for PSRO program policy for it suggests that factors other than physician and hospital behavior should also be considered when setting objectives for reducing misutilization and improving the quality of health care.

  12. Bevalac external beamline optics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This handbook is intended as an aid for tuning the external particle beam (EPB) lines at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's Bevalac. The information contained within will be useful to the Bevalac's Main Control Room and experimenters alike. First, some general information is given concerning the EPB lines and beam optics. Next, each beam line is described in detail: schematics of the beam line components are shown, all the variables required to run a beam transport program are presented, beam envelopes are given with wire chamber pictures and magnet currents, focal points and magnifications. Some preliminary scaling factors are then presented which should aid in choosing a given EPB magnet's current for a given central Bevalac field. Finally, some tuning hints are suggested

  13. Radioactive beam production at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    At the Bevalac radioactive beams are routinely produced by the fragmentation process. The effectiveness of this process with respect to the secondary beam' emittance, intensity and energy spread depends critically on the nuclear reaction kinematics and the magnitude of the incident beam energy. When this beam energy significantly exceeds the energies of the nuclear reaction process, many of the qualities of the incident beam can be passed on the secondary beam. Factors affecting secondary beam quality are discussed along with techniques for isolating and purifying a specific reaction product. The on-going radioactive beam program at the Bevalac is used as an example with applications, present performance and plans for the future

  14. Radioecology of natural systems. Three year summary report, May 1, 1974--July 31, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report is intended to provide a general summary of the progress and findings of studies during the period May 1, 1974 through July 31, 1977 on the distribution, transport, characterization and ecological consequences of plutonium in the terrestrial environs of the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant near Denver, Colorado. The contamination of a portion of the terrestrial environs of Rocky Flats with substantial quantities of plutonium provided the opportunity to search for possible ecological effects resulting from the presence of the element. Comparisons were made of various biological measurements and pathological data between ecologically similar study areas of widely varying plutonium levels. Soil in the principal study areas ranged from 100 to over 20,000 dpm 239Pu/g in the upper 3 cm (2 to 400 μCi/m2). In addition, comparative data were obtained from control areas, containing only world-wide fallout plutonium of the order of 0.1 dpm/g (0.002 μCi/m2). Biological measurements such as vegetation community structure and biomass; litter mass; arthropod community structure and biomass; and small mammal species occurrence, population density, biomass, reproduction, and physical size of whole carcass and organs were made. In addition, pathological examinations of small mammals, including x-ray for skeletal sarcomas, microscopy for lung tumors, and necropsy for general pathology and parasite occurrence were carried out. While minor differences in certain biological attributes between study areas were observed, none could be related to plutonium levels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Patient Treatment Room at the Bevalac is now in full operation. In the design of this facility, emphasis has been placed on creating an atmosphere appropriate to a clinical facility; the usual features of an irradiation cave have been hidden behind carpets, curtains and paint. Patient positioning is done with a Philips Ram-style couch, with additional fixtures to accommodate a patient in the seated or standing, as well as the supine, position. Dosimetry apparatus, collimators, ion chambers and the beam flattening system used to produce the highly uniform 20 cm diameter therapy field are described

  17. Observations on birth planning in China, 1977.

    Jaffe, F S; Oakley, D

    1978-01-01

    The People's Republic of China has a national family planning program which encourages late marriage, small families, and long birth intervals. The program attempts to make modern contraceptive, sterilization, and abortion services easily accessible. The birth planning program in 2 communes - Wan-Tou and Chang-Ching - is described in detail. In both communes, propaganda teams seek to reeducate the people to the new norms. Nearly 90% of all eligible women are using some form of birth control; in Wan-Tou more than 60% are using IUDs and less than 10% have been sterilized while in Chang-Ching the proportions are reversed. Both communities view family planning as legitimate and place a high priority on it. Traditional views regarding male superiority and the desirability of large families are the main obstacles to the family planning program. Regional variations exist in contraceptive preferences but practice is higher than 90% throughout the country. Municipal records, a sample of which is discussed, are used to monitor progress. The program has succeeded in lowering the birthrate since the early 1960s but more effort will be needed in the future. PMID:639965

  18. Microdosimetry at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Since the successful production of high intensity energetic heavy ion beams at the Bevalac a few years ago, this facility, now the only one in this country, has become a highly productive center of research in the biological and therapeutic uses of heavy ions. The potential usefulness of accurate microdosimetric data on this unique radiation modality is apparent, but has not been realized because of the scarcity of such data. This scarcity is due in part to the exceptionally severe constraints placed upon a microdosimetric experiment by these particles and in part to logistical constraints brought about by geography and the unique nature of this facility. Some initial measurements on carbon and argon ions were reported in the previous annual report, and at the Sixth Symposium on Microdosimetry. These data were taken with wall-less counters of the spherical-grid type, enclosed within tissue-equivalent plastic shells. Since two counters differing in diameter by a factor of four were used (enclosed in the same size spherical shells), comparison of data between the two counters for the same simulated tissue diameter gave an indication of differences due to the wall effect. As anticipated this effect is substantial, and confirmed the desirability of using a counter as wall-less as possible for obtaining accurate data on high-energy ions

The Guide contains specifications for over 50 standby programs and procedures, recommended implementation guidelines for using these programs keyed to a pre-emergency phase and three phases of shortfalls, and a design for an Energy Emergency Center. Flexible implementation guidelines are proposed for natural gas, petroleum, electricity/coal, and propane shortages. (MCW)

  1. Energy management at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    With the assistance of the DOE In-house Energy Management Program, various Bevalac electromechanical systems have been either redesigned, rebuilt, or retrofitted in the last several years in order to reduce both energy consumption and operating costs. Several more which have potential to save energy are under study and will be submitted to this program in the near future. Upgraded systems include rf amplifiers, dipole and quadrupole magnets, power supplies, and control systems for conventional facilities. Brief descriptions of these projects are given

  2. Relativistic radioactive heavy ion beams at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Bevalac has been demonstrated to be an efficient source of radioactive beams of good quality, and is attracting a growing body of users of this capability. Immediately on the table are an increasing demand by biomedical experimenters, leading up to eventual clinical use; and two most interesting nuclear science experiments. We are anticipating a substantial increase in interest and demand in coming years, and are planning beam line improvements to enhance transmission and purification efficiencies. 8 references, 3 figures

  3. Recent results from the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In a collision between a 1.8 GeV/amu argon ion and a lead target, the overlapping regions of projectile and target undergo violent interaction while the non-overlapping regions either continue with beam velocity and break up into projectile fragments or remain at rest and break into target fragments. Projectile fragements are the easiest to study; the participants, in the mid-rapidity region, are the next easiest, while the target fragments have not been extensively studied, except by radiochemistry techniques. This talk concentrates (with the exception of a discussion of anomalous projectile fragments) on the participant region, where one would expect to find high densities and temperatures and where evidence of any phase transition might be found. The extensive evidence for a high degree of equilibration at Bevalac energies is omitted, even though the stopping power of nuclei is crucial for possible studies at higher energies

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Whicker, F.W.

    1977-08-01

    This report is intended to provide a general summary of the progress and findings of studies during the period May 1, 1974 through July 31, 1977 on the distribution, transport, characterization and ecological consequences of plutonium in the terrestrial environs of the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant near Denver, Colorado. The contamination of a portion of the terrestrial environs of Rocky Flats with substantial quantities of plutonium provided the opportunity to search for possible ecological effects resulting from the presence of the element. Comparisons were made of various biological measurements and pathological data between ecologically similar study areas of widely varying plutonium levels. Soil in the principal study areas ranged from 100 to over 20,000 dpm /sup 239/Pu/g in the upper 3 cm (2 to 400 ..mu..Ci/m/sup 2/). In addition, comparative data were obtained from control areas, containing only world-wide fallout plutonium of the order of 0.1 dpm/g (0.002 ..mu..Ci/m/sup 2/). Biological measurements such as vegetation community structure and biomass; litter mass; arthropod community structure and biomass; and small mammal species occurrence, population density, biomass, reproduction, and physical size of whole carcass and organs were made. In addition, pathological examinations of small mammals, including x-ray for skeletal sarcomas, microscopy for lung tumors, and necropsy for general pathology and parasite occurrence were carried out. While minor differences in certain biological attributes between study areas were observed, none could be related to plutonium levels.

  12. Operations experience at the Bevalac radiotherapy facility

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During the first years of Bevalac operation the biomedical effort concentrated on radiobiology work, laying the foundation for patient radiotherapy. A dedicated radiotherapy area was created in 1978, and in 1979 full-scale patient treatment was begun. As of now over 500 treatments with carbon, neon and argon beams have been delivered to about 50 patients, some as boosts from other modalities and some as complete heavy ion treatments. Up to 12 patients per day have been treated in this facility. Continuing efforts in refining techniques and operating procedures are increasing efficiency and accuracy of treatments, and are contributing to the alleviation of scheduling difficulties caused by the unique requirements of radiotherapy with human patients

    1977-12-01

    During the period January 1, 1977, through June 30, 1977, the following amounts of transuranium elements were recovered from 12 irradiated HFIR targets: 0.1g /sup 243/Am, 21g /sup 244/Cm, 29.5 mg /sup 249/Bk, 288 mg /sup 252/Cf, 1.48 mg /sup 253/Es, and 0.7 pg /sup 257/Fm. One batch of high-purity /sup 248/Cm (approximately 50 mg) was separated from /sup 252/Cf. Twenty-three shipments were made from TRU during the period; recipients and the amounts of nuclides are tabulated. Five HFIR targets, each containing 8 to 9 g of curium, were fabricated. During the next 18 months, we expect to obtain totals of 92 mg of /sup 249/Bk, 910 mg of /sup 252/Cf, 3.8 mg of /sup 253/Es (in a mixture of isotopes), 615 ..mu..g of high-purity /sup 253/Es, and 1.6 pg of /sup 257/Fm; we also expect to make available 250 mg of high-purity /sup 248/Cm. No process or equipment changes were made during this report period. Five neutron sources were fabricated during this report period, bringing the total fabricated to date to 97. Two sources that had previously been returned to TRU were reassigned. Special projects included the following: (1) the enrichment of the /sup 244/Pu concentration in 100 mg of plutonium by irradiation to burn out the lighter isotopes, (2) the separation of 245 pg of /sup 254/Cf from 39-hr /sup 254m/Es that was produced by irradiation of 5 ..mu..g of /sup 253/Es, and (3) an experimental separation of cerium from the other rare-earth elements in a TRU process waste solution. The values that we are currently using for transuranium element decay data and for cross-section data in planning irradiation-processing cycles, calculating production forecasts, and assaying products are tabulated in the Appendix.

  14. BERKELEY: Farewell to the Bevatron/Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Nearly a hundred current and former Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory employees gathered at the Bevatron accelerator on 21 February to watch Ed Lofgren turn off the beam for the last time. Lofgren, in charge of the venerable machine from its completion in 1954 until his retirement in 1979, pushed a button that someone long ago labeled ''atom smasher offer'', bringing to an end four decades of accomplishment in high energy and heavy ion physics. Owen Chamberlain, who shared the 1959 physics Nobel with Emilio Segré for the discovery of the antiproton at the Bevatron, was among those present at the closing ceremony. The shutdown came 39 years to the week after Bevatron beam first circulated, and a touching moment came just after Lofgren shut the machine down when the poignant strains of the ''Taps'' salute wafted out over the PA system. The Bevatron - or Bevalac, as it was called after being linked to the Super HILAC linear accelerator in the 1970s - made major contributions in four distinct areas of research: high energy physics, heavy ion physics, medical research and therapy, and space-related studies of radiation damage and heavy particles in space. As well as the discovery of the antiproton, the early years of the Bevatron saw classic studies of the kaon, leading to a deeper understanding of both strong and weak interaction physics. With Luis Alvarez' development of Donald Glaser's original bubble chamber idea into a prolific physics technique, the Bevatron was a major focus of the heady days of resonance hunting in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Most recently the Bevalac (Bevatron-SuperHILAC combination) pioneered relativistic heavy ion physics. The central focus of this research programme was the production and study of extreme conditions in nuclear matter. Highlights include the first definitive evidence of collective flow of nuclear matter at high temperatures and densities, studies of the nuclear

  15. Bevalac versatility: Operations achievements in the multi-tasking mode

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Demand for relativistic heavy ion beams at the Bevalac has increased dramatically in the past two years. To keep pace, the Bevalac makes use of five injectors, precise guide field control, preset beam transport line tunes, nine nuclear science target areas, and three biology/radiotherapy areas, along with elegant control computer algorithms, to achieve high operating efficiency. Routine operation includes as many as ten ion/energy/beamline changes per day, 15 major nuclear science experiments each year, radiotherapy on nearly a daily basis, with biology experiments operating biweekly. High operating efficiency and low failure rates combine to produce high annual research hours. 12 refs., 2 figs

    While working with E.O. Lawrence at Berkeley, R.R. Wilson in 1946 noted the potential for using the Bragg-peak of protons (or heavier ions) for radiation therapy. Thus began the long history of contributions from Berkeley to this field. Pioneering work by C.A. Tobias et al at the 184-Inch Synchrocyclotron led ultimately to clinical applications of proton and helium beams, with over 1000 patients treated through 1974 with high-energy plateau radiation; placing the treatment volume (mostly pituitary fields) at the rotational center of a sophisticated patient positioner. In 1974 the SuperHILAC and Bevatron accelerators at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory were joined by the construction of a 250-meter transfer line, forming the Bevalac, a facility capable of accelerating ions of any atomic species to relativistic energies. With the advent of these new beams, and better diagnostic tools capable of more precise definition of tumor volume and determination of the stopping point of charged-particle beams, large-field Bragg-peak therapy with ion beams became a real possibility. A dedicated Biomedical experimental area was developed, ultimately consisting of three distinct irradiation stations; two dedicated to therapy and one to radiobiology and biophysics. These facilities included dedicated support areas for patient setup and staging of animal and cell samples, and a central control area linked to the main Bevatron control room.

    A large Multiple Sampling Ionization Chamber (MUSIC) has been developed as a part of the Heavy Ion Spectrometer System (HISS). This facility is being used for the study of relativistic nuclear collisions at the Bevalac of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. We have measured for MUSIC a single event resolution of 15% for Fe beam and a charge resolution better than 0.5 units of charge for a Ne beam. These results indicate that a charge resolution of one unit from Z = 7 to Z = 100 should be achieved with the present detector

    1978-03-23

    The objective of this research is to demonstrate on a laboratory scale the technical feasibility of the direct microbial conversion of pretreated wood to ethanol. During the first year of this contract, we investigated the feasibility of biologically delignifying wood with C. pruinosum and directly fermenting the pretreated wood to ethanol with a mixed culture. Bench-top fermentations of a thermophilic bacillus growing on glucose and of a mixed culture of thermophilic sporocytophaga (US) and a thermophilic bacillus growing on microcrystalline and amorphous cellulose were evaluated for growth and ethanol production. In the mixed culture fermentation of amorphous and microcrystalline cellulose, the specific rate of substrate depletion was calculated to be 0.087 hr/sup -1/ and 0.0346 hr/sup -1/, respectively. However, defining the growth requirements of C. pruinosum and sporocytophaga (US) proved more difficult than originally anticipated. In order to achieve the program objectives within the contract period, a revised research plan was developed based upon chemical pretreatment and the direct fermentation of pretreated hardwood to ethanol. In place of the biological delignification pretreatment step, we have substituted a chemically supplemented steam pretreatment step to partially delignify wood and to enhance its accessibility to microbial utilization. Clostridium thermocellum, which ferments cellulose directly to ethanol and acetic acid, has replaced the mixed culture fermentation stage for ethanol production. Research on the production of ethanol from xylose by the thermophilic bacillus ZB-B2 is retained as one means of utilizing the hemicellulose fraction of hardwood. Work on the genetic improvement of the ethanol yields of both cultures by suppressing acetic acid production is also retained. The rationale, experimental approach, and economic considerations of this revised research plan are also presented.

  5. Monitoring relativistic heavy ion beams at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Beam fluence in high intensity proton and electron accelerators is usually measured with Secondary Emission Monitors (SEM) calibrated by an activation method. These were no such activation measurements available for relativistic heavy ion beams. Secondary electron production and energy loss of a charged particle in passing through material are a result of Coulomb interaction between the projectile field and electrons in the material. Therefore range measurements and secondary emission yield should follow the same functional relationship of velocity and charge as given by the Bethe-Bloch equation. A substantial amount of data on range in water for various ions has been collected at the Bevalac Biomedical facility. Using the same calculations that convert measured proton ranges to ion ranges and comparing the calculated values to measured values, provides an indirect way to verify the validity of the SEM calibration. The results of these measurements are discussed in this paper

  6. A proposal to pulse the Bevatron/Bevalac main guide field magnet with SCR power supplies

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Bevatron/Bevalac Main Guide Field Power Supply was originally designed to provide a 15,250 Volt DC. at sign 8400 Ampere peak magnet pulse. Protons were accelerated to 6.2 Gev. The 128 Megawatt (MW) pulse required two large motor-generator (MG) sets with 67 ton flywheels to store 680 Megajoules of energy. Ignitron rectifiers are used to rectify the generator outputs. Acceleration of heavy ions results in an operating schedule with a broad range of peak fields. The maximum field of 12.5 kilogauss requires a peak pulse of 80 MW. Acceleration of ions to 1.0 kilogauss requires an 8 MW peak pulse. One MG set can provide pulses below 45 MW. Peak pulses of less than 15 MW are now a large block of the operating schedule. A proposal has been made to replace the existing MG system with eight SCR power supplies for low field operation. The SCR supplies will be powered directly from the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's 12.3 KV. power distribution system. This paper describes the many advantages of the plan. 4 refs., 3 figs., 3 tabs

  7. Physics and medicine: the Bevatron/Bevalac experience, 1979-1980

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Heavy ion radiobiology has been integrated successfully into the research program at the Bevatron/Bevalac for the past several years. During the 1979 to 1980 year radiotherapy trials have been conducted side-by-side with the demanding program of heavy ion nuclear science research at this national facility. Careful attention is given to the scheduling of research on the SuperHILAC and Bevatron/Bevalac so that the nuclear science and biomedical programs at the Bevatron/Bevalac and the program at the SuperHILAC are served to maximum effect. Efforts to maximize the researchers' time have resulted in hardware, software, and operating improvements that offer a total machine availability of about 90% and a user availability of about 80%. Fast beam switching and beam sharing permit virtually simultaneous use of the Bevatron/Bevalac by two or more users. Current beam delivery systems will be augmented in FY 1981 to provide two ion energies per Bevatron/Bevalac pulse

  18. Annual report 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The GKSS (Society for the Utilization of Nuclear Energy in Shipbuilding and Nautics) gives in this annual report a comprehensive survey of the research and development efforts carried out and a survey on the organisation and its sociological position. More detailed and generally explicable presentations of selected spheres of research deal this year with solid combustible neutron poisons, water desalination systems, pollution at the Elbe-mouth, trace analysis with x-ray fluor essence, heat conduction in water and under-water systems. The research and development programme is, in comparison with previous years better understandable. The range of tasks, 'utilization of nuclear energy', especially covers projects on the field of reactor safety research which were comprised in one project and fully integrated in the reactor safety programme of the Fed. Ministry for Research and Technology. Furthermore, nuclear energy ship development and works concerning working material technology are being carried out, to a smaller extent. The project of a nuclear container ship which run over a period of 5 years, was finished in 1977. Profitability calculations show that nuclear trade ships can be used in a profitable way, when the oil price has increased three-fold. This might be the case in about 15-20 years. Further plans of the GKSS on the field of nuclear energy ship development take into account this result. The range of tasks 'utilization of the sea and the shores' was comprised in a frame programme and divided in the research, fields of environment technique, water desalination, resources, and sea technique. These works are, beside reactor safety research, the main range of works of the GKSS. (orig./HK)

    The DLS collaboration has recently completed a high statistics study of dilepton production at the Bevalac. In particular, we have measured dielectrons (e+e-) from p-p and p-d collisions to understand the basic dilepton production mechanisms in the energy range from 1.05 - 4.9 GeV. These data can be used to determine the basic processes which contribute to nucleon-nucleon dilepton production such as hadronic bremsstrahlung, vector meson processes, and hadronic Dalitz decay. The data show that a simple elastic bremsstrahlung calculation is insufficient to explain the data. Theoretical models are compared with the data. A new high statistics study of Ca-Ca at 1.05 A GeV has been made to study the collectivity of A-A collisions.

  7. EOS: A time projection chamber for the study of nucleus-nucleus collisions at the Bevalac

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The conceptual design is presented for a detector to identify and measure (Δp/p ≅ 1%) most of the 200 or so mid-rapidity charged particles (p, d, t, 3He, 4He, π+-, K+-) produced in each central nucleus-nucleus collision (Au + Au) at Bevalac energies, as well as K30 and Λ0. The beam particles and heavy spectator fragments are excluded from the detection volume by means of a central vacuum pipe. Particle identification is achieved by a combination of dE/dx measurements in the TPC, and of time-of-flight measurements in a scintillator array. The TPC is single-ended and its end cap is entirely covered with cathode pads (about 25,000 pads and about 1000 anode wires). A non-uniform pad distribution is proposed to accommodate the high multiplicity of particles emitted at forward angles. The performance of the detector is assessed with regard to multihit capability, tracking, momentum resolution, particle identification, Λ0 reconstruction, space charge effects, field non-uniformity, dynamic range, data acquisition rate, and data analysis rate. 72 refs., 48 figs., 11 tabs

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In 1977 the three major functions of ILL continued to be performed (provision of neutron beams at the high flux reactor, development of advanced instrumentation, workshop organization). An integrated programme of improvement to the existing instruments and of new instrument construction, was carried out. A high priority was given to finishing instruments in the course of construction and both the ultra cold neutron source, PN5, and spin echo spectrometer, IN11, came into operation. No new instrument construction was started; even so, the completion of D18 (the interferometer) and IN12 (the cold three-axis machine) was delayed until 1978. Some advantage was taken of the delay to implement a new system of three-axis drive mechanics and interfacing electronics. This report gives a survey of the state of the experimental facilities at ILL and the scientific work carried out in 1977, and of the main technical and administrative activites of the Institute. Chapters correspond to the various colleges (theory, fundamental and nuclear physics, excitations, structures, liquid, gases and amorphous materials, impurities, structural biology and chemistry), reactor operation and instrument support services, computing services... A second volume of this report contains more detailed descriptions of the individual experiments

    Lamb, Charles Edwin; Downing, D.J.

    1979-01-01

    Ground-water levels in most wells did not change significantly from 1974 to 1977 in the Stovepipe Wells Hotel area, California. The average water-level decline was less than 0.10 foot between August 1974 and August 1977 in 10 observation wells. Water-level contours show a depression centered on the two pumping wells, but this depression existed before the National Park Service started pumping its well. The chemical quality of the ground water is poor. Dissolved-solids concentrations in water samples ranged from 2,730 to 6,490 milligrams per liter. Analyses of water samples from two wells showed large changes in some constituents from 1976 to 1977. Streamflow in Salt Creek has been monitored since February 1974. Base flow is seasonal, being 0.10 to 0.20 cubic foot per second during the summer and as much as three times that amount during the winter. Two chemical analyses of water from Salt Creek, representing summer and winter flow conditions, show large differences for many constituents. (Woodard-USGS)

  20. Report to Congress on abnormal occurrences, April--June 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Section 208 of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 identifies an abnormal occurrence as an unscheduled incident or event which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission determines to be significant from the standpoint of public health or safety and requires a quarterly report of such events to be made to Congress. This report, the ninth in the series, covers the period from April 1 to June 30, 1977. The NRC has determined that during this period: there were two abnormal occurrences at the 64 nuclear power plants licensed to operate, one involved a breach of a plant's physical security system and the other involved degraded fuel rods; there were no abnormal occurrences at fuel cycle facilities (other than nuclear power plants); and there were two abnormal occurrences at other licensee facilities, one involved improper radioactive source handling procedures and the other involved overexposure of two radiographers. Information updating previously reported abnormal occurrences is also included

  1. Annual report 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The report gives a survey of the activities of the Institut fuer Radiometrie of the Gesellschaft fuer Strahlen- und Umweltforschung mbH, Muenchen, in 1974. The long-term studies on flow models were finished, and new groundwater flow models were established on the basis of their results. Apart from apparative and methodical work for isotope hydrology studies, the work on melting processes in snow blankets and the water balance in glacier regions was continued. Plant materials were investigated as a contribution to palaeoclimatical studies. Furthermore, extensive borchole-meter measurements were carried out in some regions in connection with groundwater securing and protection. The knowledge gained so far concerning the hydrological situation of the region was supplemented by tritium measurements in the Asse groundwaters. (ORU)

  3. Annual report 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The experience is reported which was gained in 1974 with a central reporting, registration and data processing system for radiation doses received by workers in nearly all of the national nuclear power plants. The number of people controlled by the National Film Dosimetric Service mounted to 11,490. Also, the development of an automated thermoluminescence dosimetry system made good progress, especially the output equipment which underwent improvement. This system has the possibility of replacing film dosimetry in the future at the National Service. In the meantime, the system found some interesting applications, among which is testing the admissability of radiological caries control in large groups of the population by measuring the local dose received orally. Whole-body counting was used for contamination control of personnel in nuclear power plants, for which purpose a Ge(Li) detector was introduced. A study was begun on the use of 40K as a tracer in the determination of the ratio of lean versus fat body mass in man

  4. Annual report 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    New important topics in the research and development programme in the year 1974 were the determination and assessment of the radiation effect on the population due to external and internal radiation sources, as well as improvements of concepts, methods and standards of radiation protection and radiation measuring technique. In addition to studies on environmental radioactivity, investigations on the determination of chemitoxic metals in environmental samples were continued. A newly formed work group 'Internal Exposition' began with investigations on the deposition and retention of aerosols in the respiratory tract. Studies, amongst others, on physical primary processes of radiation effects, the dosimetry of photons and neutrons, aerosol deposition as well as on-trace analysis in air dust were continued in the framework of research contracts. The project on the investigation of the natural radiation load of the population was concluded. Work on automatic image analysis of cytological and histological preparates was continued. The development programme was adapted according to the new guidelines. (ORU/LH)

  5. Atlantis II Deep geothermal brine system. Hydrographic situation in 1977 and changes since 1965

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hartmann, M.

    1980-02-01

    The geothermal brine system of the Atlantis II Deep in the Red Sea was reinvestigated hydrographically and chemically in November 1977. A comparison with results from earlier investigations confirms an increase of the hot brine volume, as suggested by the 1972 measurements ( SCHOELL, Bundesanstalt für Bodenforschung, Hannover, 1063 pp. 1974). The rate of increase is evidently parallel to the rate of temperature increase. The salinity of the lower brine was nearly constant during this period. The nearby Discovery Deep brine is evidently unaffected by the changes in the Atlantis II Deep as its temperature was constant within ±0.1°C during this time.

  9. Atmospheric Release Advisory Capability (ARAC): update 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Atmospheric Release Advisory Capability (ARAC) is a service to facilities requiring a means of realtime prediction of the extent of health hazards that may result from a release of radionuclides or other toxic materials. The ARAC system, sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), consists of a network of serviced facilities and a central facility at the University of California, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL). Since 1973, when the concept was initiated, a joint feasibility study of the ARAC system has been conducted by LLL and the Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) and research and development was initiated to implement this service for DOE nuclear facilities. The present system of three sites (LLL, Savannah River Plant and the Rocky Flats Plant) is now being tested and evaluated with the Mound Laboratory scheduled to join the network in the fall of 1977. Plans are presently being formulated to implement the ARAC service for additional DOE sites during the next several years. This article briefly describes the ARAC concept, discusses progress to date and outlines future plans for completing the system's development and operating the service

  14. Behavior of technetium-99 in soils and plants. Progress report, April 1, 1974--March 31, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Studies described in this report were aimed at establishing the magnitude and mechanisms of 99Tc sorption by soils and uptake by plants. Results show that 99Tc was sorbed from solution over a period of two to five weeks by 8 of 11 soils studied. The slow rate of sorption, the lack of sorption by low organic matter soils, the elimination of sorption following sterilization and increased sorption following addition of dextrose all point to a microbial role in the sorption process. However, it has not been established whether this is a direct or indirect role nor is it possible to clearly predict the conditions under which sorption will occur. Results of plant uptake studies show that 99Tc can be taken up and translocated into the photosynthetic tissue of higher plants with concentrations in seeds being much less than in vegetative tissue. Technetium-99 was also shown to be toxic to plants at low concentrations and evidence suggests that this is a chemically rather than a radiologically induced toxicity. However, this remains to be completely resolved, as well as whether there is a threshold level of 99Tc required before toxicity occurs

  19. The anomalous helium component in the heliosphere - The 1965 versus the 1972-1977 solar minimum

    Science.gov (United States)

    Garcia-Munoz, M.; Pyle, K. R.; Simpson, J. A.

    1983-01-01

    The anomalous He-4 component, hereafter He(A), was first observed in the galactic cosmic-ray helium spectrum at energies below about 60 MeV per nucleon in 1972 at the beginning of the extended period of minimum solar modulation, 1972-1977, after which period it again disappeared as solar modulation increased in the new solar activity cycle. This component was not apparent during the 1965 solar minimum. It is found that the helium spectrum measured during a short interval of enhanced modulation in 1974-1975 shows the same level as the He spectrum measured during 1965. This fact demonstrates that the absence of He(A) in 1965 can be explained as the consequence of a greater level of solar modulation at low energies in 1965 than in most of the 1972-1977 solar minimum. It is concluded that He(A) may be present at all times in the outer heliosphere and be observable at successive solar minima if the residual solar modulation is sufficiently low, as in most of the 1972-1977 minimum.

  10. The discovery of the b quark at Fermilab in 1977: The experiment coordinator`s story

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Yoh, J.

    1997-12-01

    I present the history of the discovery of the Upsilon ({Upsilon}) particle (the first member of the b-quark family to be observed) at Fermilab in 1977 by the CFS (Columbia-Fermilab-Stony Brook collaboration) E288 experiment headed by Leon Lederman. We found the first evidence of the {Upsilon} in November 1976 in an early phase of E288. The subsequent discovery in the spring of 1977 resulted from an upgraded E288 the {mu}{mu}II phase, optimized for dimuons, with about 100 times the sensitivity of the previous investigatory dimuon phase (which had been optimized for dielectrons). The events leading to the discovery, the planning of {mu}{mu}II and the running, including a misadventure (the infamous Shunt Fire of May 1977), are described. Some discussions of the aftermath, a summary, and an acknowledgement list end this brief historical note.

  14. Operational accidents and radiation exposures at ERDA facilities, 1975-1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) accident frequency and losses were similar to that of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) from 1970 through 1974. The ERDA incidence rates per 200,000 work hours were 1.05 for lost workday injuries and 17.8 for workdays lost. These rates are about one-third of the national industrial averages reported by the National Safety Council (NSC). Ten fatalities occurred at ERDA facilities resulting in an average annual rate of three deaths per 100,000 workers compared to the national rate of 14 deaths per 100,000 workers. ERDA's total property loss from 1975 to 1977 was $11.9 million; $1.8 million caused by fires. The average annual loss rates, in cents loss per $100 valuation, were 1.15 for non-fire and 0.18 for fire. These rates are higher than the AEC post; Rocky Flats period (1970 through 1974) which were 0.60 non-fire and 0.10 fire; but are lower than the average annual rates which were 2.4 non-fire and 1.7 fire for the entire history of the AEC. Accidents causing more than $50,000 in property damage are tabulated. ERDA continued to make a strong effort to eliminate unnecessary radiation exposure to workers. The number of employees exceeding 1 rem decreased from 2999 in 1975 to 2274 in 1977. The two appendixes include criteria for accident investigations and summaries of accident investigation reports

It was possible to perform cytogenetical analysis in eighteen patients. Additional data and comments on six cases of prenatal irradiation reported to this service are presented. (authors)

  17. Private health insurance in 1974: a review of coverage, enrollment, and financial experience.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mueller, M S; Piro, P A

    1976-03-01

    In 1974, more than three-fourths of the civilian population had substantial economic protection through private health insurance against the costs of hospital and surgical care. Smaller proportions were covered at least in part for other health care costs, usually after payment of deductibles and coinsurance. Consumers got back 87 percent of their premium dollars in the form of benefits. The rise in premium income in 1974 lagged 4 percentage points behind the growth in claims incurred. The result was a net underwriting loss of $359.7 million or 1.3 percent of premium income. Most consumers bought their health insurance protection through insurance companies, although Blue Cross-Blue Shield plans served about two-fifths of the insured population for hospital-associated care. In addition, about 6 percent received health care through independent prepayment and self-insured plans. PMID:828776

    None

    1978-06-01

    On July 13, 1977 the entire electric load of the Con Edison system was lost, plunging New York City and Westchester County into darkness. The collapse resulted from a combination of natural events, equipment malfunctions, questionable system-design features, and operating errors. An attempt is made in this report to answer the following: what were the specific causes of the failure; if equipment malfunctions and operator errors contributed, could they have been prevented; to what extent was Con Edison prepared to handle such an emergency; and did Con Edison plan prudently reserve generation, for reserve transmission capability, for automatic equipment to protect its system, and for proper operator response to a critical situation. Following the introductory and summary section, additional sections include: the Consolidated Edison system; prevention of bulk power-supply interruptions; the sequence of failure and restoration; analysis of the July 1977 power failure; restoration sequence and equipment damage assessment; and other investigations of the blackout.

  20. Environmental radioactivity in Denmark in 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Strontium-90 was determined in samples from all over the country of precipitation, ground water, sea water, grass, dried milk, fresh milk, grain, bread, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, total diet, and human bone. Furthermore, 90Sr was determined in local samples of air, rain water, grass, sea plants, fish, and meat. Cesium-137 was determined in soil, sea water, milk, grain products, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, total diet, fish, and meat. It was also measured by wholebody-counting of a control group at Risoe Health Physics Department. Estimates of the mean contents of radiostrontium and radiocesium in the human diet in Denmark during 1977 are given. The γ-background was measured regularly by TLD, ionization chamber and on site γspectroscopy at locations around Risoe, at ten of the State experimental farms along the coasts of the Great Belt and around Gyllingnaes. The marine environments at Barsebaeck and Ringhals were monitored for 137Cs and corrosion products (58Co, 60Co, 65Zn, 54Mn). Results of plutonium determinations in soil and sediments from 1977 are presented in this report. Tritium was determined in groundwater and precipitation. Finally the report includes routine surveys of environmental samples from the Risoe area. (author)

  2. Biological studies in the sea area surrounding the Loviisa nuclear power plant in the year 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Observations of rise in water temperature caused by the plant's cooling water were made in a large area of Haestholmsfjaerden. The mean temperatures during the growth period and summer months were on average of the same magnitude as those in the 1970s, except very close to the outlet, where the mean temperatures were clearly increased by the cooling water. The salinity of the water increased to exceptionally high values in September in the whole study area. Salinities even exceeding 0.6% were measured in the surface water of Haestholmsfjaerden. The concentrations of total phosphorus and total nitrogen were clearly above the level found earlier in the area, but the increase in the nutrient level was similar at all stations (including the reference station at Pernajanlahti). The amount of oxygen in the bottom water of the deep part of Haestholmsfjaerden in late summer was lower than in previous years (1.2 ml/l, 14% of the saturation level). The phytoplankton biomass spring maximum was greater at all stations than in 1974-76. Differences in species composition were small compared with earlier years. The amounts of chlorophyll a during the spring maximum were higher in 1977 than in 1975-76. The level of phytoplankton primary production in the whole study area was lower in 1977 than in the 1970s on average. The annual production at station nearest the outlet, was about 10% greater than at station situated in the middle of Haestholmsfjaerden, owing to higher production in the middle of summer. No important differences in 'in vitro' primary production were observed between sampling places near the water intake and the outlet and the values were of the same magnitude as in 1976. (T.V.)

  6. [The development of the female labor force in Belgium: Part 1, trends from 1970 to 1977].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Broerman, M

    1980-01-01

    In the 1st section, the evolution of the active female population in Belgium was examined as a function of some social and demographic variables. The comparisons made cover the period 1970-77. The evolution in the rate of female activity during these 2 dates was analyzed and it was found that participation of women in economic activities is increasing. This is a recent phenomenon despite the serious economic recession Belgium has been experiencing since 1974. On examination of the overall volume of females employed in the total labor force, it was noted that the female labor force grew much more than did the male labor force. This increase in female activity made it possible to maintain the general rate of activity in the country. With regard to unemployment, there is an enormous disparity between the number of unemployed males and females. There is a rapidly rising trend in the number of females unemployed. In 1979, the rate of female unemployment was 3 times the rate of that of males. This situation existed in spite of the fact that the level of education in unemployed women was found to be distinctly higher than that of unemployed men. This was especially true of women less than 25 years of age who form a particularly vulnerable group. The influence of age on the activity curve of women was also studied. Peaks in 1977 existed for those ages 20-29, an age during which women raise young children. This discovery is confirmed by the remarkable advance in the activity of married women, which although recent, has taken on spectacular proportions during the last decade. The declining age at marriage, decreasing fertility, a rising trend for women in 1977 to postpone their 1st birth, and the decrease in family size are all factors which only must be briefly analyzed to discover that women in 1977 are in better position to participate in the professional world. They thereby display a desire to arrive at independence through work in spite of the obstacles encountered in

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Research and development activities (during 1974) of the Chemistry Division of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Bombay, are described. Some of the activities of particular interest to nuclear science and technology are: (1) chemistry-based problems of the operating power reactors such as development of a decontaminating solution for power reactors, correlation of iodine-131 levels in the primary heat transport system of a reactor with its operation (2) release of fission gases like xenon from ceramic fuels and (3) radiation chemistry of nitrate solutions (M.G.B.)

  18. Turbidity variations at Hanford since July 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Spectral turbidity coefficients derived from multiwavelength sunphotometer measurements obtained from July 1974 to December 1976 have been analyzed for seasonal and weekly variations. Weak biannual variations in turbidity are apparent in the data. Day-to-day variations, however, can be much larger than the coefficients for the fitted biannual terms. Consequently, it now appears that observed variations in turbidity at Hanford are related to the synoptic meteorology with a smaller, superimposed seasonality of dust and smoke sources. Turbidity variations are also independent of the day of the week

  2. Nuclear Energy Agency. 6. activity report. 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    NEA has, as a primary objective, to ensure through international co-operation that the nuclear option is available for consideration in its true worth. The safety and regulatory aspects of nulear development have represented in 1977 about two thirds of NEA's total effort; and a high degree of priority was given to questions of nuclear safety and of radioactive waste management. Similarly, the growing need of Member countries for an integrated appraisal of technical, economic, safety, environmental and political questions influencing the nuclear fuel cycle was increasingly taken into account. Finally, a general effort was made to achieve greater visibility for the positive results of the NEA programme, as a contribution to improved public understanding of the factors underlying nuclear power programmes. As in previous years, the NEA programme continued to involve close collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Commission of the European Communities. Within the OECD, close collaboration was maintained with the Combined Energy Staff and the Environment Directorate

  12. Environmental radioactivity in Denmark in 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present report deals with the measurement of fall-out radioactivity in Denmark in 1974. Strontium-90 was determined in samples from all over the country of precipitation, soil, ground water, sea water, grass, dried milk, fresh milk, grain, bread, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, total diet, drinking water, and human bone. Furthermore, 90Sr was determined in local samples of air, rain water, grass, sea plants, fish, and meat. Caesium-137 was determined in soil, sea water, milk, grain products, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, total diet, fish, and meat. It was also measured by wholebody-counting of a control group at Risoe. Estimates of the mean contents of radiostrontium and radiocaesium in the human diet in Denmark during 1974 are given. The gamma-background was measured regularly at locations around Risoe, at ten of the State experimental farms, in one area in Zealand, one in Jutland, and along the shores of the Great Belt. Finally the report includes routine surveys of environmental samples from the Risoe area. (author)

  13. Public Health Concerns Associated with the New York City Blackout of 1977.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Imperato, Pascal James

    2016-08-01

    The 1977 New York City blackout began at 9:36 p.m. on 13 July and lasted some 25 h until 10:39 p.m. on 14 July. The New York City Department of Health rapidly set up a Blackout Contingency Plan, established priorities, and mobilized its staff to address remedial interventions. Top priorities included water supplies, sewage disposal, perishable food supplies, hospital and emergency room services, solid waste disposal, beach contamination with untreated sewage , and assisting those on electrically powered home life support systems. The 1977 blackout occurred during an extended heat wave. An analysis of total deaths and deaths due to pulmonary and cardiovascular/renal diseases by day correlated with temperatures. However, there was no direct correlation with the blackout itself, in part perhaps because of the confounding influence of high temperatures. The increase of deaths on very hot days outside of the blackout period lends strong support to the relationship between increased deaths and high ambient temperatures. The 1977 New York City blackout was distinguished from those of 1965 and 2003 by violence, arson, and looting that occurred in several areas. These acts resulted in 204 civilian injuries, 436 police injuries, 80 firefighter injuries, and 1037 fires. The violence, arson, and looting caused extensive long-term physical and functional damage to certain areas of two boroughs of the city, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Although the New York City Department of Health had not previously established a disaster preparedness plan, its professionals quickly rose to the occasion because they were able to draw upon vast public health practice experience and ingenuity.

  14. Annual report, fiscal year 1974-1975

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report presents the activities of the Philippine Atomic Energy Commission for fiscal year 1974-1975. Most of these activities in which the Commission was engaged were tied up to the national nuclear power development program and the development of a technique for uranium prospecting as well as assessing uranium deposits. A five-year program was also drawn up which was approved by the office of the President. The program component consisted largely of nuclear power development, preservation of the environment and basic science research. Also during the period under report, the Commission assumed the role of a human resources bank from which experts were drawn not only by other Government agencies but also foreign organizations

  15. The enigmatic Bala earthquake of 1974

    Science.gov (United States)

    Musson, R. M. W.

    2006-10-01

    The earthquake that shook most of North Wales on the night of 23 January 1974 appears unremarkable from its entry in the UK earthquake catalogue. With a magnitude of 3.5 ML it represents the size of earthquake to be expected in the UK with a return period of about one year. However, the prominent atmospheric lights observed at the time of the shock led to speculation that an aircraft had crashed, and search-and-rescue teams were deployed. Since nothing was discovered, it was concluded that a meteorite was responsible; more imaginative members of the public decided (and still believe) that a UFO had crashed. In this paper the record of events is set out, and the nature of the earthquake is discussed with reference to its geological setting.

  16. History of Lepreau 2 since 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The 1974 Point Lepreau layout showed four CANDU 6 units with CW intake for the first pair of units. The first CANDU 6 was to be built at Gentilly 2, with Lepreau as a copy of G2 except that the layout was for two units with a common Main Control Room. The Lepreau 1 MCR was relocated resulting in the steam lines passing over the MCR of unit 1 and also near the MCR of the future unit 2. 1984 a Lepreau 2 layout was prepared using the existing CW intake and discharge. This layout was refined in 1986 so that the unit 2 MCR was away from the main steam lines of either units 1 or 2; also that a common external event could not impact both the MCR and Secondary Control Room of unit 2. In 1991 a layout was prepared of the CANDU 3 as Lepreau unit 2. (author)

  19. Report on safety related occurrences and reactor trips July 1, 1977 - December 31, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This is a systematically arranged report on all reported safety related occurrences and reactor trips in Swedish nuclear power plants in operation during July 1 to December 31, 1977 inclusive. The facilities involved are Barsebaeck 1 and 2, Oskarshamn 1 and 2 and Ringhals 1 and 2. During this period of 6 months 48 safety related occurrences and 49 reactor trips have been reported to the Nuclear Power Inspectorate. Included is also one incident June 21 in Barsebaeck 2 which was not included in the last compilation of occurrences. As earlier experiences have shown it is to the greatest extent the conventional components which bring about the safety related occurrences or occurrences leading to outages or power reductions. However, the component errors discovered in the safety related systems have not affected the function of their redundant systems and other diverse systems have not been involved. Therefore the reactor safety has been satisfactory. The total number of reactor trips have increased nearly 30% since the last period. Those occurred during power operation however, were less. More than 50% of the reactor trips happened in the shutdown condition. The fact that even small deviations from prescribed operation result in automatic and safe shut down of the reactor, does not always imply a conflict with operational availability. The greatest outages are caused by occurrences withou02068NRM 0000169 450

  20. Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics Division. Annual report, 1 January--31 December 1977. [LBL, 1977

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Lepore, J.V. (ed.)

    1977-01-01

    This annual report of the Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics Division describes the scientific research and other work carried out within the Division during 1977. The Division is concerned with work in experimental and theoretical physics, with computer science and applied mathematics, and with the operation of a computer center. The major physics research activity is in high-energy physics, although there is a relatively small program of medium-energy research. The High Energy Physics research program in the Physics Division is concerned with fundamental research which will enable man to comprehend the nature of the physical world. The major effort is now directed toward experiments with positron-electron colliding beam at PEP. The Medium Energy Physics program is concerned with research using mesons and nucleons to probe the properties of matter. This research is concerned with the study of nuclear structure, nuclear reactions, and the interactions between nuclei and electromagnetic radiation and mesons. The Computer Science and Applied Mathematics Department engages in research in a variety of computer science and mathematics disciplines. Work in computer science and applied mathematics includes construction of data bases, computer graphics, computational physics and data analysis, mathematical modeling, and mathematical analysis of differential and integral equations resulting from physical problems. The Computer Center provides large-scale computational support to LBL's scientific programs. Descriptions of the various activities are quite short; references to published results are given. 24 figures. (RWR)

  1. High-level waste-basalt interactions. Annual progress report, February 1, 1977--September 30, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Commercial radioactive waste can be placed under ground in a basalt repository to contain significant amounts of radioactive decay heat for the first hundred or so years, which constitutes the ''thermal period'' of waste isolation, if the feasibility is determined that a basalt geology is a suitable medium for storage of radioactive wastes. Several physical-chemical changes analogous to natural geochemical processes can occur in and around this repository during the thermal period. The waste canister can act as a heat source and cause changes in the mineralogy and properties of the surrounding basalts. Geochemically, this is ''contact metamorphism.'' This phenomenon needs to be investigated because it could affect the behavior of the basalt with regard to migration of long-lived radionuclides away from the immediate repository. It is well known that even the relatively low-grade hydrothermal conditions possible in the repository (temperatures up to 400 degrees Centigrade; pressures up to 300 bars) can cause extensive modifications in rocks and minerals. At the end of the thermal period, the residue of the original waste plus the waste-basalt interaction products would constitute the actual waste form (or ''source term'') subject to the low-temperature leaching and migration processes under investigation in other laboratories. During the last eight months of fiscal year 1977, a program was initiated at The Pennsylvania State University which had as its objective the determination of the nature and implication of any chemical or mineralogical changes in, or interactions between, each candidate radioactive waste form and representative Columbia River Basalt under the various relevant repository conditions during the thermal period. Results of these investigations are given

  2. Activities report 1977--78. Applied mathematics department 5640

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report is a compilation of independent articles highlighting some of the work done in the Applied Mathematics Department during the years 1977 and 1978. It is neither an exhaustive report on all activities in the department during this period nor a list of the most substantial mathematical contributions. Instead, it is a selection of topics which are thought to be of greatest interest because of their importance to Sandia. The report is divided into four principal sections which reflect the department's major areas of interest: Mathematical Physics, Computational Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, and Discrete Mathematics. To provide a smoother narrative, references are omitted from the text. However, a complete department bibliography of corporate and open publications as well as technical presentations for the period October 1977 through December 1978 is appended. 4 figures, 3 tables

  4. The Nuclear Installations Act 1965 etc. (Repeals and Modifications) Regulations 1974, Statutory Instrument 1974 No. 2056

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Regulations which came into force on 1st January 1975 repeal and modify certain of the provisions of the 1965 Act and of the Nuclear Installations (Dangerous Occurrences) Regulations 1965; they follow from the establishment of the Health and Safety Executive and the entry into force of provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 which affect or supersede provisions of the 1965 Act and the 1965 Regulations. The purpose of this amendment is to transfer the functions under the 1965 Act, connected with the licensing of nuclear installations, from the Secretary of State for Energy to the Health and Safety Executive, and to transfer the functions of inspectors of nuclear installations appointed by the Secretary of State under the 1965 Act to inspectors henceforth appointed by the Health and Safety Executive.

  5. The Radioactive Substances Act 1948 (Modification) Regulations 1974, Statutory Instrument 1974 No. 1821

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Section 5 of the Radioactive Substances Act 1948 enables Regulations to be made by the appropriate Minister as respects premises or places in which radioactive substances are manufactured, produced, treated, stored or used or irradiating apparatus is used, for the purpose among others of preventing injury being caused by ionizing radiations to the health of persons employed at those premises or places or other persons. Power to make Regulations for that purpose is now included in the powers contained in Section 15 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. These Regulations therefore modify Section 5 of the 1948 Act so that, in its application to Great Britain, it no longer contains the power to make Regulations for that purpose, and in consequence three Orders in Council which make the Secretary of State for Employment the appropriate Minister for the purpose of making Regulations under that Section in specified cases are revoked.

    1975-01-01

    The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Trinity River Authority of Texas, conducted timee-of-travel studies in the Trinity River basin during a period of low flow September 19-23, 1973, and during a period of moderate flow July 23-August 1, 1974.  The purpose of these two studies was to provide data that could be used by the Trinity River Authority as part of the basic input to a mathematical water-quality model of the river. The model is being developed as part of a comprehensive water-quality management plan for the basin.

  8. 1974 review of the research program

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The role of the Research Program in Controlled Thermonuclear Research, the activities that are contained within the Research Program, and summaries of the reports prepared by the study groups that analyzed the six activity areas that make up the Research Program are described. The recommendations by an ''Overview Panel'' are given. The recommendations are based on an analysis of the individual study group reports, consultations with CTR staff and field scientists, and on independent review of CTR program plans and needs. In some cases the recommendations of the Overview Panel are identical with study group recommendations and in other cases they are not. Some recommendations by the Overview Panel take into account factors and information that go beyond that available to the study groups. The five-year budget needed to accomplish the recommended Research Program is discussed. The Overview Panel chose to normalize its budget recommendations to the actual FY 1975 Research Program budget, reflecting the fact that this is already determined. The budgets for subsequent years are then based on this starting point. The complete reports prepared by the six study groups are given. Each report is based on an analysis of the needs as dictated by the Magnetic Confinement Systems and Development and Technology Program Plans. (U.S.)

  9. Annual environmental monitoring report of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, 1977

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Stephens, L.D. (ed.)

    1978-03-01

    The data obtained from the Environmental Monitoring Program of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory for the Calendar year 1977 are described and general trends are discussed. The general trend of decreasing radiation levels at our site boundary due to accelerator operation during past years has leveled off during 1977 and in some areas shows a slight but not statistically significant increase as predicted in last year's summary. There were changes in both ion beams as well as current which have resulted in shifts in maxima at the monitoring stations. The gamma levels are once again reported as zero. There is only one period of detectable gamma radiation due to accelerator operation. The annual dose equivalent are reported from the environmental monitoring stations since they have been established. Radiation levels at the Olympus Gate Station have shown a steady decline since 1959 when estimates were first made. The Olympus Gate Station is in direct view of the Bevatron and most directly influenced by that accelerator. Over the past several years the atmospheric sampling program has, with the exception of occasional known releases, yielded data which are within the range of normal background. The surface water program always yields results within the range of normal background. As no substantial changes in the quantities of radionuclides used are anticipated, no changes are expected in these observations.

    Full Text Available The Geneva Convention 1949 is an international treaty that regulates the victims of the international armed conflict and non-international armed conflict. The convention is supplemented by the Additional Protocol 1977 that governs the victims of international armed conflict (Additional Protocol I 1977 and victims of non-international armed conflict (Additional Protocol II 1977. Problems formulated in this study is how the implementation of these treaties in the Indonesian national law. The method used is normative juridical with secondary data and qualitative descriptive analysis. The results showed that the implementation of the Geneva Convention 1949 into Indonesia national law is done by Act No. 59 of 1958 on the Accession of the State of RI to the Geneva Conventions 1949. The urgency of Indonesia ratified the Additional Protocols of 1977 is in order that there will not have any doubts in practice. Wherease the practice of ratification in Indonesia is done by external and internal procedure.

    In 1970, 1974 and 1978 similar surveys of alcohol and drug use were conducted using 10% random samples of Vancouver secondary school students (grades 8-12). The reported use of alcohol increased from 61% in 1970 to 71% in 1974 and 78% in 1978, while the use of cannabis increased from 39% in 1970 to 42% in 1974 and 47% in 1978. The use of tobacco,…

  14. Observations of neutral carbon in the NGC 1977 bright rim

    Strong neutral carbon emission at 610 microns (492 GHz) has been detected from a bright-rimmed cloud abutting the H II region NGC 1977. The similarity of velocity and width between (C-13)O and C I lines suggests that both lines originate in the same region. A model for the density and temperature structure of the cloud, based on (C-13)O and (C-12)O observations, has been used to estimate the carbon abundance. The abundances of both C I and (C-13)O increase with depth into the cloud away from the rim. The carbon abundance reaches its peak value nearer the rim than does the (C-13)O abundance. This variation in the relative abundance distributions of CO and C I confirms the importance of photodissociation in the chemistry of molecular clouds, and of the C I line to studies of the interaction of hot stars with clouds.

    In order to establish an etiological and statistical base for spinal cord injuries, 1,617 spinal cord injured patients admitted to the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan during the period of 1977 to 1989 were reviewed. The most common causes of injury were pedestrian (29.31%) and motorcycle (28.88%) accidents. The greatest incidence of injury was in the 26-35 year age group. The complete tetraplegic patients had the highest mortality rate (26.5%). Additional features studied were the time of occurrence and pattern of injury. Information gathered from this study suggest the need to establish a Spinal Cord Injury Prevention Program, to develop a Prehospital Care System and set up comprehensive Spinal Cord Injury Units in Taiwan. We expect this study to be adaptable to other similar developing countries. PMID:8221290

    In 1977, an outbreak of toxoplasmosis occurred among 37 persons associated with exposure to an indoor horse arena. Cat feces containing the organism were most likely stirred up when horses ran on the dirt floor, and were inhaled or ingested by riders and observers. After 25 or more years, we attempted to locate persons from the outbreak and offer them an eye examination. Of the 37 persons in the outbreak, 18 (49%) were located; four had died, and the remaining 14 agreed to an examination. Among the 14 persons examined, three (21%) were found to have lesions typical of toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis. If these three persons were the only ones with ocular disease among the 37 persons in the outbreak, the disease rate would still be high (8%). As a result of exposure to Toxoplasma gondii during this outbreak, a relatively high percentage of persons developed ocular disease. PMID:27044565

  3. Department of Energy 1977--1994: A summary history

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Fehner, T.R.; Holl, J.M.

    1994-11-01

    The Department of Energy Organization Act of 1977 created perhaps the most interesting and diverse agency in the Federal Government. The new department brought together for the first time not only most of the government`s energy programs but also defense responsibilities that included the design, construction, and testing of nuclear weapons. The Department of Energy incorporated a score of organizational entities from a dozen departments and agencies, each with its own history and traditions. Uniting these seemingly disparate entities and programs was a common commitment to performing first rate science and technology. The Department of Energy sought--and continues to seek--to be one of the Nation`s premier science and technology organizations. The Department of Energy, 1977--1994, is a summary history of the origins, goals, and achievements of the Department and selected major programs. Beginning with the various fuels policies on the energy side and the Manhattan project on the defense side, the study details how the Department was born of the energy crisis of the early and mid-1970s. The history then surveys the Department and its programs from the Carter through the Clinton administrations. As the energy crisis eased, the Department played a central role on issues as dissimilar as the Strategic Defense Initiative and the Superconducting Super Collider. With the end of the Cold War, the Department of Energy further transformed itself, moving from the building of bombs to partial dismantlement of the nuclear weapons complex and to an increased emphasis on environmental activities and technology transfer efforts.

  4. Operation and utilization of the FR2 in 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In its twelfth year of operation after the increase in power to 44 MW, the FR2 reactor again was operated at that design power according to schedule. The utilization of the reactor time at full power relative to the scheduled period of full power operation was 88% in 1977, the power output was 10,066 MWd. There were no major difficulties affecting reactor operation. Use of the reactor for experimental purposes again was good. Isotope production including irradiation of silicon for doping purposes for the production of semiconductors reached the level of the previous year. The production of fission product molybdenum medicine has shown a promising start. 20 experiments in the research areas of nuclear solid state physics and structural analysis (neutron diffraction) are attached to the beamhole outlets, some of them operated in the beamhole sharing mode. Up to 8 instrumented fuel capsule rigs and 3 pre-irradiation rigs were simultaneously loaded in the reactor core within the framework of the LWR Safety Program. Operation of the four large scale loop experiments proceeded according to schedule. While the superheated steam high pressure loop is becoming more and more important for purposes of the LWR safety program, the pressurized helium gas loop previously used for the Fast Breeder Project was decommissioned on May 2, 1977. In the way of this decommissioning also the thermionic converter, although still functioning, was removed after an unexpected in-pile time of some 31.800 hours of operation (N > 43 MW). The neutron radiography system was used for 176 pictures of test specimens, capsule rigs and biological material in the year under review. The γ-in-pile rig was used to capacity, holding 35 samples examined to study the radiation resistance of various materials. 24 argon samples were extracted from the gas activation system for a program of measuring two-phase flows.

  5. Thermoregulation and temperature relations of alligators and other large ectotherms inhabiting thermally stressed habitats. Progress report, 1 October 1974--30 September 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Significant progress has been made in determining the mechanisms by which large ectotherms adjust to thermal stress in their natural environment. The effect of mouth gaping on head temperatures and the role of radiation, conduction and convection on body temperatures of alligators have been determined. The utility of energy budget modeling as a method for studying the thermoregulatory mechanisms of animals has been demonstrated. Steady state and time dependent models of body temperature have been tested. Convection coefficients and evaporative water loss rates have been measured for the turtle, Chysemys scripta. Climate space diagrams have been formulated and are being tested. Behavioral thermoregulation of turtles has been studied in PAR pond on the Savannah River Plant, Aiken, S.C. Steady state energy budget equations have been computed for largemouth bass. Experimental heat transfer coefficients indicate that most heat transfer is through the body wall and not via the gills. A time dependent model is being tested. It predicts the body temperature of a fish in a heterothermal environment. Theoretical calculations have been made of the effects of body size, color, and metabolism on the temperature regulation of ectotherms

  6. Environmental modulation of somatic mutations: nature of interactions. Final report, 1 June 1974--31 May 1977. [Effects of diurnal temperature changes in Tradescantia

    Mericle, L.W.

    1977-05-01

    Research on this project has had as a major goal a combined ecologic-genetic investigation of somatic mutations in order to evaluate the impacts of certain changing environmental parameters. The ultimate aim, to better understand how such environmental-mutation interactions operate and to assure the information obtained be extrapolatable to conditions and events in nature. Higher plants delineate reproductive tissues late in development from meristematic, somatic tissues. Moreover, the prevailing method of reproduction may be without sexual fusion of gametes and/or wholly asexual (vegetative). Therefore, somatic mutations can have as far-reaching genetic significance for a plant population as when germ cells, themselves, are directly affected. Our data show diurnal temperature differences (DTD) of greater than or equal to 22.2 C-degrees to be very effective mutagenic agents in the Tradescantia somatic mutation system. Further, these ranges of DTD were found to occur often in important seed production areas. A DTD of 22.2 in magnitude can increase mutations 10-fold. And, durations short as 1-day can induce significant increases in mutation rate. Whether interaction of 22.2 DTD with low-level radiation (800 mR/day) is synergistic or attenuative is still debatable. We believe, however, that spontaneous, and 22.2 DTD induced, mutations occur mainly via the genetic mechanism of somatic crossing-over; mutations from acute ionizing radiation (e.g., 30-60 R ..gamma..) via chromosome breakage, producing micronuclei. Requirements for maximizing the Discriminatory Response Capability (DRC) in the Tradescantia somatic mutation system are set forth.

  7. Fission- and alpha-track study of biogeochemistry of plutonium and uranium in carbonates of Bikini and Enewetak atolls. Summary report, 1 July 1974--31 August 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Alpha emitters of pCi/g amounts have been detected with a resolution of a few micrometers using a solid state track detector (cellulose nitrate) to map the activity in a coral sample from Bikini. Calibration methods used include: a Pu source of 0.15 μCi in conjunction with polycarbonate and CaCO3 absorbers of different thicknesses (2 to 30 micrometers), and a powdered coral sample which had been analyzed previously for alpha emitters by chemical methods in conjunction with an alpha spectrometer. 0.04 mm3 can be measured routinely; lower concentrations can be determined but with less resolution. The alpha emitter concentration in CaCO3 of the coral Favites virens from Bikini lagoon was analyzed by placing the detector directly on the slab sample for thirty days. Analyses of sections and thin sections of this coral slab cut perpendicular to one another, but parallel to the direction of coral growth, give very different concentrations and distributions of alpha emitters

    Progress made during FY-1977 in establishing design criteria to ensure the successful operation and long-term stability of Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) reservoirs in underground porous media, such as aquifers is summarized. The formulation of pertinent criteria is important since the long-term stability of air storage reservoirs is probably the item of greatest risk to the successful demonstration and commercialization of the CAES concept. The study has been divided into four phases: (1) state-of-the-art survey, (2) analytical modeling studies, (3) laboratory studies, and (4) field testing. The first of these phases, the state-of-the-art survey for air storage in porous reservoirs, has been completed on schedule and is reported in Section 2. Sections 3 and 4 are progress reports on Phases 2 and 3. No work has been done on Phase 4. It is planned that the field testing phase of this study will be carried out in conjunction with the Department of Energy/Electric Power Research Institute (DOE/EPRI) CAES Demonstration Program. This phase is not scheduled to begin until FY-1979.

    The HZETRN deterministic radiation transport code is one of several tools developed to analyze the effects of harmful galactic cosmic rays (GCR) and solar particle events (SPE) on mission planning, astronaut shielding and instrumentation. This paper is a comparison study involving the two Monte Carlo transport codes, HETC-HEDS and FLUKA, and the deterministic transport code, HZETRN. Each code is used to transport ions from the 1977 solar minimum GCR spectrum impinging upon a 20 g/cm2 Aluminum slab followed by a 30 g/cm2 water slab. This research is part of a systematic effort of verification and validation to quantify the accuracy of HZETRN and determine areas where it can be improved. Comparisons of dose and dose equivalent values at various depths in the water slab are presented in this report. This is followed by a comparison of the proton fluxes, and the forward, backward and total neutron fluxes at various depths in the water slab. Comparisons of the secondary light ion 2H, 3H, 3He and 4He fluxes are also examined.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During the solar eclipse of June 20, 1974, a team of scientists and engineers from the United States and Australia conducted a series of scientific observations to study the temperature distribution in the solar corona. The performance of the rocket launched experiments is summarized. Two identical experiments were launched. Both rocket systems performed nominally. One failed to acquire the sun before entry into the shadow. Film from the recovered payload verified that the sun was not in view. The other test appeared to point successfully at the sun. However, the payload was not recovered and no data were obtained. The probable cause of the failures is discussed. (U.S.)

  19. Environmental monitoring report for Pantex Plant covering 1974

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During 1974 Pantex Plant conducted a monitoring program to determine the concentration of specific radioactive and non-radioactive species in the local environment. Although the plant activities involved the handling of significant quantities of uranium, plutonium, and tritium, only small releases of uranium (depleted in the isotope 235U) and tritium have occurred which could affect the local environment. Monitoring data indicate that concentrations of these nuclides in the environment are below established criteria for air and water and therefore do not present a health hazard either to employees or to the public.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harvey, P D

    1984-01-01

    In 1977 and again in 1982, a series of couponed ads were run in three major Bangladeshi newspapers to test the relative effectiveness of different family planning themes. The ads offered a free booklet about methods of family planning (1977) or "detailed information on contraceptives" (1982) in the context of family health, the wife's happiness, the children's future, and family economics. The most effective ads, by a highly significant margin, were those stressing the importance of family economics (food and shelter) and the children's (sons') future. The least effective ads stressed the benefits of family planning for the wife. PMID:6701954

  10. German-Danish agreement of 4 July 1977 on mutual information on the erection of nuclear installations close to the border

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Pursuant to the German-Danish agreement of July 4, 1977, the Home Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Minister of the Environment of the Kingdom of Denmark undertake to exchange information on the erection of nuclear installations in proximity of the border. The obligation to inform was put down in 10 articles. It applies to installations within 100 km of the border. Wherever an installation is within 30 km of the border, an appropriate documentation must be provided. Additionally, talks about safety aspects have been planned. (HP)

    ABSTRACT The 1977-1978 influenza epidemic was probably not a natural event, as the genetic sequence of the virus was nearly identical to the sequences of decades-old strains. While there are several hypotheses that could explain its origin, the possibility that the 1977 epidemic resulted from a laboratory accident has recently gained popularity in discussions about the biosafety risks of gain-of-function (GOF) influenza virus research, as an argument for why this research should not be perfor...

    Full Text Available Litton Industries decided to establish one of its divisions in Northern Spain in 1965 called Litton-Cole. They chose Asturias to set up a factory intended to manufacture office furniture with a metallic component. The region had the potential to develop this kind of product due to its industrial base. It was easy to be provided with materials like steel, but above all a specialized workforce from Asturias’ Arms Industry. In the context of Spanish sixties José Antonio Menéndez Hevia was in charge of designing several banks and other public commercial establishments. Due to his connection with the Asturian banking sector, he had the opportunity to design office furniture set for Cole Steel. Cole Steel was the commercial name for the Asturian factory. Menéndez Hevia designed a very thorough set with almost twenty possible combinations that was commercialized under the name of Sintex. The series was successful on a national scale which was aimed at furnishing bank branch offices, but it was also exported to countries like Italy. Thousands of units were sold as part of one of the few Spanish design products manufactured in series at that time. The factory was closed in 1977, but in the general background of Spanish industrial design this series was forgotten, being part of our usual anonymous design history.

  3. Land reclamation program. Annual report, July 1976--October 1977

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Carter, R. P.; Hinchman, R. R.; Johnson, D. O.

    1978-05-01

    The Argonne Land Reclamation Program, sponsored by the United States Department of Energy's Division of Environment and Safety, is a joint effort of two Argonne divisions: Energy and Environmental Systems and Environmental Impact Studies. The program is carried out by a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers, and has three primary goals: (1) to conduct research and development projects that are focused on both near- and far-term reclamation problems in all major U.S. coal regions; (2) to coordinate and evaluate related studies at other institutions; and (3) to keep industry and government decision-makers informed of reasonable reclamation options and their costs. Since many of the factors that influence reclamation success are region- or site-specific, the program has adopted a regional approach to field and laboratory research. In each of the nation's eight major coal regions, one or more mines have been (or will be) selected as sites for field studies. The vast amount of data gathered by the research arm of the program has also required the development of a data systems component of the program. This annual report is intended to provide a summary of the program's activities and accomplishments during fiscal year 1977.

  4. Environmental radioactivity at the National Nuclear Research Centre, Pelindaba, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The revised environmental survey program introduced during 1970 with the emphasis on monitoring of the critical paths of exposure of the general public, was continued in 1977. The analytical method for 131l in milk was improved to give a lower detection limit, and the gamma background survey now also includes a more specific measurement for 131l. Results of determinations of both gross radioactivity and individual nuclides in samples of fish and water (which are critical materials for liquid-effluent releases) from the Hartbeespoort Dam and from the Crocodile River, are given and discussed. Results of 131l, 0Sr and gamma-spectrometric analyses of milk, the critical material for releases to the atmosphere, are presented. Results are also given of regular investigations of the composition of effluent releases which were well below the permissible levels. Levels of deposited and airborne activity from nuclear-bomb tests are reported. No environmental radioactivity resulting from NNRC releases could be detected above the fallout levels

  5. Summaries of FY 1977, research in high energy physics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The U.S. Department of Energy, through the Office of Energy Research and the Division of High Energy and Nuclear Physics, provides approximately 90% of the total federal support for high energy physics research effort in the United States. The High Energy Physics Program primarily utilizes four major U.S. high energy accelerator facilities and over 50 universities under contract to do experimental and theoretical investigations on the properties, structure and transformation of matter and energy in their most basic forms. This compilation of research summaries is intended to present a convenient report of the scope and nature of high energy physics research presently funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The areas covered include conception, design, construction, and operation of particle accelerators; experimental research using the accelerators and ancillary equipment; theoretical research; and research and development programs to advance accelerator technology, particle detector systems, and data analysis capabilities. Major concepts and experimental facts in high energy physics have recently been discovered which have the promise of unifying the fundamental forces and of understanding the basic nature of matter and energy. The summaries contained in this document were reproduced in essentially the form submitted by contractors as of January 1977

  9. Division of Waste Management, Production, and Reprocessing programs progress report for January--June 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Construction of the 100-kg/day Radioactive Acid Digestion Test Unit (RADTU) facility was completed in June 1977 with the exception of the acid recycle mode, which is being added to the originally planned unit. Engineering tests of the acid recycle flowsheet, using test equipment one-quarter scale of the proposed acid recycle addition to RADTU, confirmed the validity of the zero effluent flowsheet proposed for RADTU. Studies were continued on immobilization of wastes in cement. Cement products containing up to 16 wt percent boric acid were successfully made and tested for compressive strength. The thermal characteristics of various waste products were determined using a differential scanning calorimeter. The ignition temperatures for bitumen and bitumen products containing salts, including sodium nitrate, were found to be about 4000C. There was no significant lowering of the ignition temperature below that of bitumen itself upon incorporation of these salts into bitumen. Urea-formaldehyde products exhibited ignition temperatures around 3000C. Ignition temperatures of resins (anion and cation) were relatively high (400 to 6000C) except for anion exchange resin in the nitrate form which ignited about 2500C. Leach tests were performed on various waste products immobilized in cement, urea-formaldehyde, and bitumen. The results indicated that cement solids exhibited the lowest leach rates for leaching of uranyl nitrate from immobilized anion exchange resin and from immobilized acid digestion residue. Leach rates of cesium and strontium from immobilized anion exchange resin were lowest for bitumen products. Work is proceeding on development of a process to reduce the volume of mercuric nitrate - nitric acid off-gas scrub solution without loss of the iodine. Preliminary results are promising and indicate that volume reductions of at least 10-fold can be achieved with as little as 0.01 percent of the iodine being volatilized

    Forbes, G. S.

    1975-01-01

    Radar observations of tornado families occurring on April 3, 1974 are discussed. Of the 93 tornadoes included in the sample, 81% were associated with hook-like echoes with appendages at least 40 deg to the south of the echo movement. At least one tornado was associated with 62% of the hook-like echoes observed. All of the tornadoes with intensities of F 4 and F 5 were produced by hook-like echoes; the mean intensity of all tornadoes associated with this type of echo was F 3, while the mean intensity of the remaining tornadoes was F1. The tornadic hook-like echoes moved to the right of the non-tornadic echoes forming a tornado line in advance of the squall line. Some tornadoes were associated with 'spiral' echoes.

    Zabezensky, F

    1976-12-01

    Members of the Arizona State Society for Medical Technology were contacted to ascertain their knowledge of the P.A.C.E. program as well as to obtain release of the transcripts for those who participated during 1974. Observations regarding reported credits were noted. The Analysis of Variance test with Scheffe comparison was utilized to determine if any characteristic accounted for the difference in total continuing education hours reported. It was concluded that residence location, marital status, sex, age, degree level, length of membership in ASMT, years experience, employment extent, place of employment, and number of beds at place of employment had no significant effect on the total hours reported. A significant difference in total hours reported was noted for those individuals who reported either CEU or college credits. A significant difference was also noted in the total hours reported with respect to job description. PMID:998653

  13. Paul Tsongas and the battles over energy and the environment, 1974--1980

    Science.gov (United States)

    Netherton, Dane Morris

    This dissertation examines the political career of Paul Tsongas of Lowell, Massachusetts, from 1974 to 1980, with particular attention to his efforts to reconcile regional, environmental, and economic interests during his two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and his first two years in the U.S. Senate. The national debates over energy policy during the late 1970s present an essential context for understanding Tsongas's lasting place in American political history. The energy crisis created a divisive legislative battleground during the late 1970s, forming the backdrop of Tsongas's first congressional election in 1974 and his two terms as U.S. Representative. Tsongas played an active part in congressional consideration of energy issues through his seat in the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, his participation in the Ad Hoc Committee (created to shepherd President Jimmy Carter's National Energy Plan through the House of Representatives), and his efforts to locate a Solar Energy Research Center in Massachusetts. Energy issues also formed a backdrop to Tsongas's other accomplishments as a Representative: his key role in the creation of the Lowell National Historical Park, the economic revitalization of Greater Lowell, and the first congressional hearings to examine the contribution of carbon dioxide to global warming. Throughout his career, he worked to promote a rational and responsible regional energy policy for Massachusetts and New England. In his first two years in the Senate, energy issues were intimately connected to Tsongas's role in the Chrysler Bailout bill, the Solar Energy and Energy Conservation Bank Act of 1980, and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. Notably, he also worked hard to push President Carter towards a renewed effort to deal with energy problems. This dissertation draws upon the extensive primary sources available in the Tsongas Collections at The University of Massachusetts Lowell's Center for Lowell

  14. Vegetation in the Forsmark biotest basin, 1974-1986

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Since 1980, Forsmark Power Plants has discharged large amount of cooling water into the Biotest basin. In 1974, before the dam was constructed, and 1980 to 1986, the macrophytic algae and higher vegetation inside and around the basin has been investigated. The observed changes are mainly caused by the increased water temperature causing lack of ice cover during the winter, the embankment reducing the exposition, the heavy water stream through the basin and the reduced light transmission in the water. The macroscopic vegetation in the Biotest basin was originally distributed all over the lake, but is now mainly found in more shallow water. The deepest part, a passage from the input of the cooling water to the output, totally lack vegetation. The reason for this is a combination of the heavy stream, raised temperature and reduced light transmission. The total biomass of macroscopic vegetation in the basin has been reduced from c. 70 metric ton in 1980 to c. 27 ton in 1982 and 1986. Among the most important species, the production of Chara spp. and Potamogeton pectinatus have been strongly reduced, while Cladophora glomerata and Vaucheria sp. have increased. Especially for Vaucheria, the raised temperature has been of vital importance. Among other species, Tolypella nidifica first increased, but has now totally disappeared. Zannichellia palustris was the only phanerogam which increased all the time. It is Z. palustris var. major which stands for the increase, while Z. palustris var. repens has disappeared from the basin. The shore vegetation, mainly reeds, has expanded conspicuously. From 1974 to 1980, the shore vegetation was favoured by the reduced exposition caused by the embankment. Since then, the raised temperature and absence of ice cover have resulted in an accelerating expansion of mainly Phragmites communis. Scirpus tabernaemontani and S. maritimus were first increasing, but do not seem to be able to compete with Phragmites in the long run. (au)

During 1978 — 82 the majority of reindeer killed by vehicles were hinds (52,2% and calves (24,6%. Reindeer road deaths were concentrated in the southern and central, heavily trafficked herding areas. Most reindeer were killed by vehicles in the marked herding areas of Pudasjårvi, Kuusamo, Raudanjoki and Sodankyiå. The most destructive section of road was highway number 20 between Pudasjårvi and Taivalkoski where 559 reindeer died during 1978 — 82 on a 36 km stretch. The worst railway stretch was between Ii and Kemi where an average of 115 reindeer/10 km died during 1976 — 82. Most reindeer died in traffic in November, December and January during the soft snow period when the movement of reindeer is most difficult. In summer, most reindeer died in traffic in July — August. The number of reindeer deaths on the roads in May — September depended slightly on the temperature in the different months (r=0,398. Throughout the whole reindeer herding area the amount of reindeer deaths also depended on the average 24-hour traffic (r=0,445.Porojen liikennekuolemat Suomessa 1974 — 83.Abstract in Finnish / Yhteenveto: Vuosina 1974—83 kuoli liikenteesså Suomessa yhteenså 23.298 poroa.

  19. Comparison of environmental radiation doses estimated for Hanford Operations, 1977 through 1982

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Offsite environmental radiation dose equivalents based on Hanford operations are compared for the years 1977 through 1981 to those calculated for 1982. The comparison revealed a downward trend in calculated offsite doses over the period 1977 through 1982, due primarily to reported reduced effluent releases, changes in effluent reporting methods, and increased Columbia River flow over this period. The calculated doses verify the surveillance program findings that potential offsite radiation doses due to Hanford Operations are small and well below our ability to detect in the environment. 11 references, 23 tables

  4. Remarks presented (questions/answers discussed) at public regional meetings to discuss regulations (10 CFR Part 21) for reporting of defects and noncompliance, July 12--26, 1977

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In enacting the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, Congress included Section 206 which requires the reporting of defects and noncompliances directly to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). This congressional action required that the NRC promulgate rules and regulations, as necessary, to assure appropriate implementation of Section 206. In response to this mandate, the NRC drafted a new regulation. Following a period of public comment and revision, the regulation identified as 10 CFR Part 21, Reporting Defects and Noncompliance, was published in a Federal Register Notice on June 6, 1977. To assist NRC licensees and other firms and organizations covered by the new Part 21 regulation, public regional meetings were conducted by staff representatives to explain the rule. At these meetings the staff presented prepared remarks and answered questions on the meaning and application of the rule. Staff remarks contained in the original publication of this document were also provided to those in attendance. At each meeting the staff received a request for the questions and answers discussed by the staff to be made available for use as guidance by the nuclear industry covered by the rule. It was announced that a consolidation of the staff position question/answer guidance would be made available to each organization or firm attending these meetings and for others where a request is made in accordance with the directions printed insidethe front cover of the document. The staff will be guided in its implementation and enforcement of Part 21 by the positions set forth in the document. The revision of NUREG-0302 includes the following three parts relating to 10 CFR Part 21: (1) remarks presented by staff representatives; (2) Federal Register Notice material; and (3) a consolidation of questions and answers from the public regional meetings

  5. Policy succession: the case for federal health planning in the 1990's.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mueller, K J

    1993-01-01

    Direct federal involvement in local health planning ended in 1986 with the repeal of the Health Planning and Resources Development Act of 1974. This article argues that planning has remained an important element in state and local public health activities, and that it will re-emerge as a national effort. Theories of policy succession are used to derive conditions for policy renewal that are satisfied by the current policy environment for health planning. The need for planning is obvious when issues related to health care delivery in rural areas are considered, and there are strong advocates of the need for planning. PMID:10145800

  6. Agriculture, population, and economic planning in Ethiopia, 1953-1980.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Robinson, W C; Yamazaki, F

    1986-04-01

    This paper deals with the economic development of Ethiopia in the 3 decades between 1950 and 1980. In particular, it examines governmental efforts at agricultural planning during this period compared to the actual experience of the country. The dominant forces governing the changes that occurred in this period were accelerated population growth and the declining availability of arable land, which combined to push a fragile, traditional ecosystem to the brink of disaster. Government planning efforts had little impact in the pre-1974 period, since they were too modest and small scale to affect the highly traditional and primitive mode of peasant cultivation. The sweeping structural changes introduced by the new regime since 1974 seem to have mainly adverse effects and to have decreased both productivity and yields. Ethiopia lacks the basic infrastructure and incentive system to create an environment in which technological change is possible. Presumably the declining agricultural growth rate from 1953 to 1974 suggests that the traditional, prerevolution system was failing to create these favorable conditions and hence was losing the race with population growth. The post-1974 revolutionary government's policy has been, in effect, an effort to jump to an advanced phase of agricultural development, and this seems to have been even less successful. These plans have, in all fairness, been hamstrung since 1981 by drought, famine, and civil war, but have probably themselves contributed to the severity of those events. Overall, Ethiopian agricultural planning has not been notably successful. From 1953-1980, total agricultural production is estimated to have grown at a slowly decreasing rate. The collapse of agriculture due to several years of drought obviously cannot be blamed on government planning, but its severity clearly has been at least partly a function of policy failures.

  7. Site suitability report in the matter of Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant. Docket No. 50-537. Revision to March 4, 1977 report

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In March 1977, the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation issued its Site Suitability Report (SSR) for the proposed Clinch River Breeder Plant (CRBRP). That SSR documents the result of the staff's evaluation of the suitability of the proposed CRBRP site for a facility of the general size and type as the CRBRP from the standpoint of radiological health and safety considerations. The staff concluded in that SSR that the proposed CRBRP site is suitable for such a facility. Since the SSR was issued, several modifications have been made to the CRBRP design, additional data related to the site and its environs have been collected, and the Fast Flux Test Facility, a technological precursor to the CRBRP, has been completed and has commenced operation. In addition, new emergency planning requirements have been promulgated by the staff. This report is an update of the March 1977 SSR that reflects these matters and discusses them in terms of the previous staff conclusion regarding the suitability of the proposed CRBRP site

  8. Reconstruction and modelling of the 1977 Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) of the Engaño Lake, Chilean Patagonia.

    Floods from moraine-dammed lake failures can result in severe damage to mountain communities. GLOFs can also cause long-standing effects in riverine landscapes, due to the high intensity (i.e. great depth and high velocities) and long reach capacity of these events. GLOFs may increase in frequency as glaciers retreat and new lakes develop, highlighting the need for a better understanding of GLOF dynamics and the measures to reduce their negative outcomes. In Patagonia at least 16 moraine-dammed lakes have failed in historic time, however, data about GLOF dynamics and impacts are limited since GLOFs have mainly affected uninhabited areas and ungauged rivers. In March 1977, however, a GLOF flooded a small village (~130 inhabitants) in Chilean Patagonia. We reconstruct the dynamics of this event by semi-structured interviews, interpretation of satellite images (Landsat MSS) and two dimensional (2D) hydraulic modelling (using HEC-RAS 5.0 BETA and the SRTM v4 DEM). This reconstruction provides insights into GLOF behaviour, as well as the planning issues that led to socioeconomic consequences, which included relocation of the village. We mapped the flood extent and compiled data of flood depth and timing to constrain the 2D GLOF simulations. Modelling shows that the water released by the GLOF was in the order of 12-13 million cubic metres and that the flood reached Bahía Murta Viejo, located ~26 km from the failed lake, 2-3 hours after the moraine dam was breached. The flood lasted for about ten hours (at the village), although the peak discharge occurred after only one hour at this site. The maximum water depth at Bahía Murta Viejo was 1.5 m, however, water depths of up to 20 metres were simulated in upstream constricted reaches. The overall flood dynamics suggested by interviews and geomorphic mapping, including hydraulic ponding upstream of bedrock gorges, was well represented in the 2D simulations in spite of the coarse resolution (~80 m) of the DEM used.

  12. Earthquake engineering development before and after the March 4, 1977, Vrancea, Romania earthquake

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    At 25 years since the of the Vrancea earthquake of March, 4th 1977, we can analyze in an open and critical way its impact on the evolution of earthquake engineering codes and protection policies in Romania. The earthquake (MG-R = 7.2; Mw = 7.5), produced 1,570 casualties and more than 11,300 injured persons (90% of the victims in Bucharest), seismic losses were estimated at more then USD 2 billions. The 1977 earthquake represented a significant episode of XXth century in seismic zones of Romania and neighboring countries. The INCERC seismic record of March 4, 1977 put, for the first time, in evidence the spectral content of long period seismic motions of Vrancea earthquakes, the duration, the number of cycles and values of actual accelerations, with important effects of overloading upon flexible structures. The seismic coefficients ks, the spectral curve (the dynamic coefficient βr) and the seismic zonation map, the requirements in the antiseismic design norms were drastically, changed while the microzonation maps of the time ceased to be used, and the specific Vrancea earthquake recurrence was reconsidered based on hazard studies Thus, the paper emphasises: - the existing engineering knowledge, earthquake code and zoning maps requirements until 1977 as well as seismology and structural lessons since 1977; - recent aspects of implementing of the Earthquake Code P.100/1992 and harmonization with Eurocodes, in conjunction with the specific of urban and rural seismic risk and enforcing policies on strengthening of existing buildings; - a strategic view of disaster prevention, using earthquake scenarios and loss assessments, insurance, earthquake education and training; - the need of a closer transfer of knowledge between seismologists, engineers and officials in charge with disaster prevention public policies.

    1977-12-01

    Experiments were carried out and chemical aspects of ambient precipitation were determined using a sequential precipitation collector for the period July 1976 through September 1977. A related report provides experimental details. In experiments with plants, experiments were aimed to document: the foliar response of six clones of hybrid poplar to simulated acid rain; effects of buffered solutions and various anions on vegetative and sexual development of gametophytes of the fern (Pteridium aquilinum) and the acid-sensitive steps of symbiotic nitrogen fixation of the garden pea (Pisum sativum). After five 6 min daily exposures to simulated rain of pH 2.7, up to 10 percent of the leaf area of some poplar clones was injured. Lesions developed mostly near stomata and vascular tissue as shown with other plant species. Acidic solutions have a marked effect on sperm motility and fertilization (sexual reproduction) of bracken fern. Since sexual reproduction of ferns is very sensitive to mildly acidic conditions under laboratory conditions, experiments are planned to view the response of sexual stages of other plant species. Nodulation and symbiotic nitrogen fixation in Pisum is very sensitive to nutrient solution acidity. Specific isolates of Rhizobium bacteria are used and the medium pH can be maintained rigidly. In experiments to determine the effects of excess acidity on soil microbiological processes, the rate of denitrification may be slowed so drastically that increases of N/sub 2/O in the atmosphere may result with a subsequent reduction in soil nitrogen levels.

    The Staunton 1 Reclamation Demonstration Project involves an evaluation of the reclamation process for a deep coal mine refuse system. A typical abandoned midwestern deep coal mine refuse site was selected, final land use was determined, baseline data were collected, engineering plans were developed and implemented, and a post-construction evaluation was begun. The project is a cooperative effort by two state agencies--the Abandoned Mined Land Reclamation Council of Illinois the Illinois Institute for Environmental Quality--and the U.S. Department of Energy through the Land Reclamation Program at Argonne National Laboratory. Current investigations are monitoring groundwater, surface water quality, aquatic ecosystems, revegetation, soil characteristics, erosion and runoff, soil microbial and soil fauna populations, wildlife, and economic effects of the reclamation effort. The research is a multidisciplinary approach to the concept of ecosystem response to reclamation.

  2. Collective ion acceleration. Progress report, October 1977--September 1978

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Numerical and analytic studies of collective ion acceleration in intense relativistic electron beams are presented. Investigation of autoresonant acceleration has shown that radial beam inhomogeneities distort the slow cyclotron wave into a surface-localized mode. Variation of linear wave fields in inhomogeneous magnetic fields is strongly affected by this. Numerical studies of self-consistent cyclotron waves show the persistence of linear characteristics even at large amplitudes. Propagation of large amplitude waves has been observed over moderate distances in simulations without significant attenuation or nonlinear disruption. Ion acceleration in virtual cathodes has also been studied. Insights into both formation and late time dynamics have been gained. Increased virtual cathode understanding is being pursued toward defining optimal configurations. Future plans are outlined

    1978-01-01

    Most East Asian countries have national family planning programs combined with projects to improve nutrition and jobs in rural areas. The countries which have had a rapid industrial development, such as Taiwan or Singapore, have seen their birth rate decrease sharply during the past 20 years. In most countries the government discourages large families and promotes vasectomy and minilaparotomy; abortion has been legalized almost everywhere. Information through radio and television play an important role, but not quite as important as that of fieldworkers who go from home to home in areas not reached by mass media. Cost for these programs is heavily paid by the U.S., and all programs are evaluated in the country of origin. Results are very encouraging and sometimes excellent, as in the case of South Korea, where about 45% of women practice contraception, and fertility rate has decreased from 6.0 in 1960, to 3.5 in 1975.

    The December 1974 (D1974) flow in the SW rift zone at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, has been established as a Mars analog due to its physical and chemical properties as well as its interaction with the outgassing plume from the primary Kilauea caldera. The RIS4E (Remote, In Situ and Synchrotron Studies for Science and Exploration) node of the SSERVI (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute) program has conducted two field campaigns to the D1974 flow in an effort to study both its morphology and emplacement history as well as its geochemical and mineralogical signature. Several field portable instruments were deployed at the field site, including handheld x-ray fluorescence, field portable x-ray diffraction, a multispectral imager, Light Detection and Ranging, Ground Penetrating Radar, and a kite capable of producing high-resolution images and Digital Terrain Model data products. This study specifically focuses on the combination of field data with laboratory infrared spectra acquired in the MIR and VNIR ranges. We focus on the solfatara site which consists of hydrothermally-altered basalt deposited in and around an actively degassing volcanic vent situated directly adjacent to the D1974 flow on its NW side. Preliminary laboratory results indicate that the samples exhibit IR signatures consistent with various sulfates (K, Ca, Mg, Na, Al, Fe+3, Cu, Zn, Sr), clay minerals, amorphous silica, Fe-oxides, and/or sulfur. This data will give us a rich understanding of the solfatara site and enable us to make inferences about the hydrothermal alteration products formed in similar Martian environments.

    What about the subsidence caused by gas exploitation around the Wadden Sea? Is subsidence on the Wadden Sea really manageable by extraction with the 'hand on the faucet'? These and other questions are examined in an analysis of the measurements around the Wadden Sea in the period 1977-2011. After publication of the main report on the effects of ground subsidence at the island Ameland-Oost two more aspects were investigated: sedimentation and the speed of ground subsidence. This annex reports on those aspects [Dutch] Hoe staat het met de bodemdaling door gaswinning rond de Waddenzee? Is bodemdaling op de Waddenzee werkelijk beheersbaar door winning met de 'Hand aan de kraan'? Deze en andere vragen zijn onderzocht in een analyse van de metingen rond de Waddenzee tot over de periode 1977-2011. Na publicatie van het hoofdrapport over de effecten van bodemdaling op Ameland-Oost op 9 dec 2011 zijn nog twee aspecten met consequenties voor de bodemdaling op het Wad nader onderzocht: sedimentatie en bodemdalingsnelheid. Deze appendix geeft de resultaten weer.

    INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of the study was to describe the incidence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgeries in Denmark during the last 30 years, age distribution over time, and the lifetime risk of undergoing POP surgery. METHODS: We carried out a population-based registry study....... The setting was the Danish National Patient Registry. The sample consisted of Danish women of all ages undergoing prolapse surgery during the period 1977-2009. Data were retrieved from the Danish National Patient Registry. Prolapse surgery included surgery for any type of genital prolapse including...... hysterectomy due to prolapse. The main outcome measures were incidence of POP, age distribution over time, and lifetime risk of undergoing POP surgery. RESULTS: Surgical interventions for POP decreased by 47 % from 1977 (288 procedures/100,000 women) to 1999 (153 procedures/100,000 women). Subsequently, they...

    In 1967-1970, 3.81 km/sup 2/ of a densely populated deltaic area of Hooghly district in West Bengal, India was intensively studied. This same area was resurveyed in 1977 and 1987. From 1977-1987, the human population has increased 10.1%, while the number of households has increased 25%. The total number of children below 10 years of age has diminished. The cattle have increased 26.5%. The number of working-age male cattle has dropped significantly with reliance, primarily on hand tractor power for field cultivation. The number of female cattle has increased substantially. Artificial insemination and the use of temperate breeds of bulls have had an obvious impact. Improvements in the general environment were observed.

  18. Determinants of coal mine labor productivity change. [1950 to 1977

    Coal mine labor productivity (tons per miner-shift) has been falling yearly since 1970. The decline in labor productivity since 1970 has implications for the coal industry's labor demand, cost of production, and injuries and could hinder the ability of the industry to meet the coal output goals of the National Energy Plan. The purpose of this research study was to identify and measure the causes of labor productivity decline. Concise answers are given to three questions: Why is coal mine labor productivity important. What are the causes of labor productivity decline in deep and surface coal mines. What are the implications of these findings for future coal mine labor productivity. Coal mine labor productivity is important for three reasons: (1) it affects the cost of coal production, (2) it affects coal industry labor demand, and (3) it affects injuries and injury rates in coal mining. Labor productivity is the link between output levels and employment requirements. The period of declining productivity coincides with major changes in the coal industry's environment: (1) change from a largely unregulated industry to a highly regulated industry (the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969; implementation of many state surface mine reclamation laws, etc.) and (2) change from a declining, marginal profits industry to a growing, profitable industry (increasing coal prices and demand in the 1970s). A major conclusion of the study is that a portion of the high labor productivity of the 1960s was possible because some of the costs of coal mining - worker injuries, black lung disability, and environmental damage - were not being paid for by the coal industry and coal consumers. Once these costs were forced internally on the mine operators by legislation, productivity fell and the cost of production increased.

    Zwischen 1970 und 1977 entsteht in fünfjähriger Dreharbeit mit Unterbrechungen und unter extrem schwierigen Produktionsbedingungen David Lynchs erster Spielfilm "Eraserhead". Vorbereitet wurde er in mehrfacher Hinsicht durch das Frühwerk des noch jungen Regisseurs. Seine kinetische Skulptur "Six Men getting sick", sowie seine Kurzfilme "The Alphabet" und "The Grandmother" verhalfen ihm nicht nur zu Stipendien (etwa der AFI für "The Grandmother"), sondern etablierten auch ein Motivinventar, au...
