  5. A PROBABILISTIC SITE CHARACTERIZATION SYSTEM

    SBC: HALEY & ALDRICH OF NEW YORK            Topic: N/A

    SITE CHARACTERIZATION, THE PROCESS OF EVALUATING EXISITING SUBSURFACE SOIL AND ROCK CONDITIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON PROJECT DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION, IS A COMMON ELEMENT IN EVERY GEOTECHNICAL DESIGN PROJECT. SINCE THE PROCESS IS COMPLICATED BY SPARSE DATA AND THE NEED TO QUANTIFY UNCERTAINTIES, IT IS A NATURAL AREA TO APPLY RISK ANALYSIS AND PROBABILITY THEORY. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVOLVE AN ...

  6. A SOLID STATE SPECTRAL LINE DISCRIMINATOR FOR REMOTE SENSING OF CLOUD PROPERTIES

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

    THE OXYGEN MOLECULE HAS A NUMBER OF WEAK ABSORPTION LINES INTHE 7000 A SPECTRAL REGION. BY COOLING, THE R1 LINE OF RUBY(A12O3 : CR+3) CAN BE SHIFTED TO COINCIDE WITH 50% ABSORPTION AT LINE CENTER IN THE SOLAR SPECTRUM. RUBY FLUORESCES WITH HIGH QUANTUM EFFICIENCY, WITH A TIME CONSTANT OF APPROXIMATELY 4 MS AT THE TEMPERATURES OF INTEREST. BY DETECTING THE RERADIATED LIGHT, THE RUBY CRYSTAL IS USED ...
