Mercury Study Report to Congress

By: Environmental Protection Agency

Excerpt: Exposure was characterized in a progressive manner, with varying reliance on computer models for mercury deposition and fate. The objective of this analysis was to characterize the extent to which piscivorous wildlife are exposed to mercury originating from airborne emissions. Details on exposure assessment inputs, methods and results can be found in Volumes III and IV of this Report. Three general approaches were used, which are described as follows.

By: Sharon A. Squassoni

Summary: Since India and Pakistan tested nuclear weapons in 1998, there has been a debate on whether the United States should provide assistance in making those weapons safer and more secure. In the wake of September 11, 2001, interest in this kind of assistance has grown for several reasons: the possibility of terrorists gaining access to Pakistan’s nuclear weapons seems higher, the U.S. military is forging new relationships with both Pakistan and India in the war on te...

A Joint Committee on Intelligence : Proposals and Options from the...

By: Frederick M. Kaiser

Introduction: Congress saw the first proposal to create a joint committee on intelligence (JCI) in 1948. It appeared just one year after the establishment of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Office of Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), both integral parts of the most far-reaching executive reorganization in United States history. Numerous other plans along the same lines have materialized in the meantime, including one in 2004 from the 9/11 Commission. ...

Ideal Gas Thermodynamic Properties of Ch, A+, +, F4, Halomethanes

By: Shanti A. Kudchadker

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: This work is the continuation of calculations of the thermodynamic properties of bromo- and iodomethanes 111. For this purpose, a systematic literature survey complete up to 1976 was carried out on vibrational frequencies, structural parameters and enthalpies of formation of mixed halomethanes, BraIb(X=H, F, Cl). Out of forty seven compounds of this type the vibrational frequencies were available for only twenty one compounds. The structural data and gaseou...

By: H.J.M. Hanley

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: The transport properties of argon, krypton, xenon, nitrogen, and oxygen are discussed in this paper. Our objectives are to evaluate viscosity-coefficient (?) and thermal-conductivity-coefficient (A) measurements, to establish equations to represent selected data, and to generate tables of recommended values. Tables of the coefficients are presented for temperatures (T1 extending from about the triple point temperature to 500 K, and for pressures (P) up to 100 MPa.

1.INTRODUCTION The Reiter treponeme has been used more or less continuously since the late 1920s in experimental and research work and as an antigen for serological tests for syphilis. Some groups of workers have maintained that this organism was originally a virulent treponeme and could cause syphilis, and others have maintained that the Reiter treponeme has always been a saprophytic organism. The available literature on the Reiter treponeme has been reviewed and compil...

1. INTRODUCTION The world's food requirements continue to grow, but in an environment of scarce resources and of limitations on methods of food production. In addition, the problems of food storage and processing make it necessary to search for effective alternative methods of food preservation, particularly where existing methods are costly because of the energy requirements and may be difficult to provide in some areas. Accordingly, it is reasonable to consider the use...
