  1. Formaldehyde and Hydrogen Peroxide Instrument for Flight Based Measurements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 8314

    Hydrogen peroxide formation represents a loss of gas phase HOx and results in the transfer of atmospheric oxidative capacity to the liquid phase. Measurements of formaldehyde and H2O2 are vital to fully elucidate the atmospheric mechanisms associated with ozone formation and the formation of inorganic and secondary organic aerosol throughout the atmosphere. Tunable infrared differential absorpti ...

  2. Predictive Modeling of Solar Insolation in the Marine Environment for Solar Power System Applications

    SBC: Irradiance, Inc.            Topic: 831

    We aim to develop analytic tools and instruments to improve performance predictions for photovoltaic power systems on buoys. Using these capabilities, we can design more powerful and reliable power systems and provide NDBC more power to operate offshore data buoys and serve the Nation with enhanced observations of the marine environment. Present day buoy power systems are feasible because they u ...

  4. Submersible In-Situ Grain Sizing Device

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 8114

    A novel, miniaturized optical sensor for in-situ monitoring of underwater sediment grain size is described. This device employs light scattering measurement techniques previously developed by Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) for the U.S. Navy in a compact, powerful tool for acquiring quantitative information on particle size. Combining this innovative, miniature and inexpensive technology with unde ...

  6. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Ammonia

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

    The USDA recognizes the need for improved instrumentation to monitor atmospheric ammonia which is a major environmental concern and a health hazard. Ammonia is a public health concern at high levels, as can be found in animal feed lots. At low levels, ammonia is a source of particulates which are not only a human health problem but also affect visibility and global climate. It has been estimated t ...

  7. Advanced Development of a Low-Cost, Handheld Electrochemical Ethylene Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a plant hormone that is involved in regulating various aspects of plant growth and development such as seed dormancy, seedling growth, root and stem thickening, promotion of flowering, and promotion of fruit ripening and spoilage. Measurement of ethylene is important for developing a basic understanding of these processes, as well as for utilization in advanced agricultural practices. ...

  8. Bioactive Food Components as Activators of Human SIRT1; Development of Caloric Restriction-mimetic Therapeutics Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

    SBC: Sirtris Pharmaceuticals            Topic: N/A

    Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. There are currently 18 million patients in North America and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Disease (NIDDK) estimates that approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone. In 2002 the direct costs of T2D were estimated to be $92 billion (up from $44 billion in ...
