  1. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  2. "MITIGATION OF ACID RAIN AND OXIDANT IMPACTS ON CROPS AND FORESTS UTILIZING MARINE EXTRACTS"

    SBC: Maricultura Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ASSESSMENTS ESTIMATE U.S. CROP LOSSES FROM ELEVATED OZONE LEVEL AND OTHER OXIDANTS (SULFUR DIOXIDE, NITROGEN DIOXIDE) TO BE AS MUCH AS $5 BILLION ANNUALLY. ADDITIONALLY,SEVERE FOREST DAMAGE MAY RESULT FROMPOLLUTION-RELATED OXI- DANTS PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATICDECLINE IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS. THIS RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT THE MITIGATION OF SUCH ...

  3. ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE: MODIFICATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITIONS OPTICAL PROPERTIES AND CLIMATE

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASING CONCERNS ABOUT THE POTENTIALLY LARGE COOLING OF THE LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE RESULTING FROM THE SOOT AND DUST INJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BY THE EXPLOSIONS AND SECONDARY FIRES FROM NUCLEAR EXCHANGES, THE SO-CALLED "NUCLEAR WINTER" SCENARIOS. HERE WE ARGUE THAT, IN ADDITION TO DUST AND SOOT, A LARGE NUMBER OF TRACE GASES (NO[X], H[2]0, HC, CH[4]) C ...

  4. IMPULSIVE COLD CATHODE PHOTOELECTRON ACCELERATOR

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO EVALUATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TECHNIQUE FOR RAPID DEPOSITION OF ENERGY IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE AT LEVELS COMPARABLE WITH MEGATON DETONATIONS AT 200 KILOMETERS TO PROVIDE BASELINE DATA FOR PREDICTING INFRARED EMISSIONS FROM HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS. PREVIOUS MEASUREMENTS UTILIZED PULSES OF ELECTRONS LASTING SEVERAL SECONDS. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGHER ENERGY D ...

  5. A THREE-DIMENSIONAL DISPLAY FOR EMISSION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECT OF THE PLANNED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING A TRUE THREE-DIMENSIONAL (3-D) DISPLAY FOR VIEWING THE IMAGERY PRODUCED BY EMISSION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY SYSTEMS IN THE FIELD OF MEDICINE. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IS TO DISPLAY HARD AND/OR SOFT COPY COMPUTER-GENERATED HOLOGRAMS VERY RAPIDLY. DURING PHASE I OF THE PROGRAM, A HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY INSTRUMENT (HDI) WILL BE ...

  6. A BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR NEUTRON DETECTOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SINCE THEIR DISCOVERY NEUTRONS HAVE REMAINED ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT FORMS OF RADIATION TO DETECT. THE MOST EFFECTIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS IN CURRENT USE ARE GAS FILLED DETECTORS EMPLOYING EITHER 3HE OR BF3 AS THE DETECTION MEDIUM. UNFORTUNATELY, GAS FILLED DETECTORS SUFFER FROM A NUMBER OF DEFICIENCIES INCLUDING LARGE SIZE (GASES HAVE LOW VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY FOR STOPPING NEUTRONS), MECHANICAL FR ...

  10. IMPROVED SENSITIVITY AND SELECTIVITY IN COLLECTOR PROBE EXPERIMENTS BY ANALYSIS WITH RESONANCE IONIZATION SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE FUSION ENERGY PROGRAM, COLLECTOR PROBES ARE AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR CHARACTERIZING AND UNDERSTANDING THE PARTICLE FLUXES AND ENERGIES IN THE PLASMA EDGE. THE ENERGYOF THE IONS AND NEUTRAL ATOMS IMPINGING ON THESE PROBES IS QUITE LOW, THEREBY LEAVING MOST OF THE PARTICLES CLOSE TO THE PROBE SURFACE. DEPTH PROFILING OF THE COLLECTED MATERIAL GIVES INFORMATION ABOUT THE PARTICLE ENERGY, AND DENS ...
