  1. A Web-based, Interactive, Long-range Hydrologic Forecast Tool for the Western U.S.

    SBC: 3Tier Environmental Forecast Group, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Water resource managers must translate uncertain information about the future into operational decisions that can have large public safety, economic and ecological impacts. Seasonal forecasts of climate and hydrology can be an important tool in assisting managers in their decision making process. However, studies evaluating the utility of seasonal forecasts have repeatedly identified the lack of ...

  2. Nanotechnology Systems to Prevent Disease and Improve Healing of Aquatic Animals

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 8111

    Netting, tagging, and/or vaccination of shrimp or fish often result in increased stress and infections caused by opportunistic pathogens. Damaged epidermis or cuticle provides a portal of entry to potentially deadly infective agents that bind preferentially to injured cells. Recent advances in nanotechnology and computer-assisted scanning instrumentation now make it possible to quantify progress ...

  3. Improved Water Level Measurement System

    SBC: Sutron Corporation            Topic: 8311

    This project provides a preliminary design and specifications for a Data Collection Platform with Interrogate (DCPI) capability using DS-CDMA RF transmission techniques. Sutron shall develop a sample link budget for the DCPI link and model its performance. A protocol will then be designed that will allow maximum flexibility in the communications with the DCP. A prototype will be developed to ex ...

  4. Improved Water Level Measurement System

    SBC: Sutron Corporation            Topic: 842

    This project provides an improved design for the dual-orifice bubble gauge for water level observations in cold regions. The improvements consist of using optimized true-differential sensors and specialized processing to improve the accuracy, particularly in the presence of water waves. The prototype will be designed based on a numerical model of the dual-orifice gauge that includes the time-dep ...

  5. Improved Spawning, Fertilization, Rearing, and Grow-out Methodologies for the Culture of the Sablefish

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Metabolism and physiology research on the sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) conducted in Phase I of this research established that this fish is highly suited to culture conditions typically found in the Pugent Sound or Straight of Juan de Fuca waterways of the state of Washington. In this research, we will examine techniques to improve spawning of captive brood fish, increase fertilization success, ...

  6. Induction and Utilization of Tetraploidy in Atlantic Salmon as a Reliable Method for Producing Sterile Autotriploid Stock

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 8117

    The use of sterile, triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) has been suggested by many to be a means of mitigating the perceived genetic impacts of escaped animals on their wild counterparts. The US Atlantic salmon industry has been slow to adopt this technology, apparently due to reduced performance under stress of conventionally made (de novo) triploids. We propose to develop techniques to prod ...

  7. Meis System for Inspection of Pipeline Coating

    SBC: HD LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Coating disbond on buried pipelines contineus to be a major problem world-wide. Disbonds left unrepaired promote both corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking, which are much more costly to repair. Improved inspection technology is currently needed to detect and characterize disbonds. HD Laboratories, Inc. proposes to refine and test a novel method of detecting and assessing coating disbonds and ...

  8. Pipe Disbondment Detection and Coating Assessment Using the Dynamic Wavelet Fingerprinting

    SBC: SOLERS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Existing pipe inspections ae incapable of reliably detecting coating disbonds. Conventional above ground surveys cannot detect disbonds because of shielding conditions, and traditional guided wave inspection systems are unable to reliably detect subtle non-axisymmetric flaws. Finally, most of the advanced ultrasound technology in industry has been focused on inline inspection systems which are i ...

  9. A2A Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis


    Endotoxemia (Sepsis) affects horses of all breeds and ages and is the leading causes of death in adult horses and foals. Consequently, its economic impact on the equine industry in the United States is devastating. This project seeks to develop new treatments for this disease.

  10. A Rapid Breath Test Assess Bovine Respiratory Disease

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bovine Respiratory Disease is the most costly disease among cattle arriving at feedlots and results in decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and a rapid and sensitive diagnostic method for BRD is not currently available. This project will validate a state-of-art biomedical breath analysis sensor to assess the respiratory health of cattle. Our goal is to i ...
