Creating a transdisciplinary research center to reduce cardiovascular health disparities in Baltimore, Maryland: lessons learned.  

PubMed

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) disparities continue to have a negative impact on African Americans in the United States, largely because of uncontrolled hypertension. Despite the availability of evidence-based interventions, their use has not been translated into clinical and public health practice. The Johns Hopkins Center to Eliminate Cardiovascular Health Disparities is a new transdisciplinary research program with a stated goal to lower the impact of CVD disparities on vulnerable populations in Baltimore, Maryland. By targeting multiple levels of influence on the core problem of disparities in Baltimore, the center leverages academic, community, and national partnerships and a novel structure to support 3 research studies and to train the next generation of CVD researchers. We also share the early lessons learned in the center's design. PMID:24028238

Carbon monoxide, ozone, and hydrocarbons in the Baltimore metropolitan area  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tropospheric ozone is one of the worst air pollution problems faced by the Baltimore area. Aircraft measurements of trace gases and meteorological variables showed that downwind ozone (O3) and carbon monoxide (CO) mixing ratios were higher than those observed upwind of the urban area. Overall, CO mixing ratios were the highest at the surface and decreased with altitude. Ozone, in contrast, exhibited its maximum concentration in the layer immediately above the surface (950 mb), as dry deposition and the reaction with nitrogen oxide (NO) are its main removal mechanisms at the surface. Interannual variability of trace gas distributions was substantial; 1993 showed unusually high CO and O3 mixing ratios. This reflects the reduced rate of dispersion of CO and O3, and the increase in oxidation rates of O3 precursors due to the regional effects of a stagnant high-pressure system. The hydrocarbon analysis for the years 1993 (at Essex) and 1995 (at Lake Clifton) suggested that alkanes were the most abundant species by mass during summer and fall. In contrast, reactivity calculations showed alkenes and aromatic compounds as the most significant species in producing tropospheric ozone. The natural hydrocarbon isoprene was the most important (by reactivity) of all measured hydrocarbon species. Its concentration increased with increasing ambient temperature during ozone episodes in 1993. Ozone episodes in 1995, however, showed a decrease in isoprene mixing ratios at highest ambient temperatures due to drought and increased ventilation. The suitability of the target transformation factor analysis (TTFA) technique for apportioning major hydrocarbon emission sources is evaluated. Overall, the summer of 1993 showed gasoline vapor and petrochemical emissions as the most important hydrocarbon emissions by mass. In 1995, tailpipe and refinery emissions were the most prominent by mass. Source apportionment by reactivity showed that biogenic and tailpipe emissions were the most significant sources at both receptor sites, together accounting for 75% of the total reactivity of the measured hydrocarbons.

The Impact of Climate Change on Air Quality and Respiratory Disease: Maryland/DC Metropolitan Area  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ground level ozone, or tropospheric ozone, forms smog and becomes directly harmful to humans by exacerbating respiratory conditions, primarily asthma (Knowlton et al. 2004). As climate change progresses, increased ozone concentrations emerge as a major public health concern (Gardiner et al. 2011). Increasing ground level ozone concentrations have been directly correlated with rising temperatures (Patz et al. 2005). The projected increase in ozone concentration caused by climate induced temperature change is 1-2 ppb in 2020 and 2-7 ppb in 2050, with associated temperature increases of 1-2 degrees Fahrenheit and 2-5.5 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively (UCS, 2011). Those with existing respiratory conditions, children and the elderly, and those who spend a significant amount of time outdoors are the most sensitive to ground level ozone pollution (Schlink et al. 2006). In Maryland, there would be approximately 68,894 occurrences of acute respiratory symptoms associated with a 2 ppb climate penalty in 2020, and the total costs for health impacts associated with this would be approximately $133,398,027 (UCS, 2011). In their 2011 "State of the Air" report, the American Lung Association rated the Washington/Baltimore/Northern Virginia region as one of the 25 most ozone polluted regions nationwide (ALA, 2011). We examine asthma hospital admissions data for the Maryland/DC metropolitan region between 2005 and 2010 and identify possible correlations with the reported ozone measurements provided by the EPA (CASTNET). We examine trends between the archived temperatures from NCEP reanalysis data, the EPA ozone data, and reported asthma cases. We utilize these trends to investigate the future impact of changes in ozone concentration based on the IPCC AR4 and SRES emissions scenarios and attempt to quantify the financial burden of its implications. Visualizations from this data can serve as important educational and planning tools for decision makers in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia regions.

Notes from the field: repeat syphilis infection and HIV coinfection among men who have sex with men--Baltimore, Maryland, 2010-2011.  

PubMed

Syphilis diagnoses in the United States have increased substantially over the past decade, and most cases occurred among men who have sex with men (MSM). Nationally, rates of primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis reported among men increased, from 3.0 cases per 100,000 population in 2001 to 8.2 in 2011. In 2011, approximately 72% of P&S syphilis cases occurred among MSM*, among whom new diagnoses of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have increased in recent years. Infection with syphilis increases the likelihood of acquiring and transmitting HIV; moreover, the occurrence of syphilis in an HIV-infected person is an indication of behavior that might increase the likelihood of HIV transmission. The population of Baltimore, Maryland, is particularly affected by syphilis and HIV. In 2011, the Baltimore metropolitan statistical area (MSA) had the second highest rate of reported cases of P&S syphilis (11.4 per 100,000 population) and the sixth highest estimated rate of diagnoses of HIV infection (33.8 per 100,000 population) compared with other MSAs in the United States. Local public health officials have noted a subpopulation of MSM diagnosed with repeat syphilis infection; they believe that this subpopulation might bear a disproportionate burden of both syphilis and HIV infection and that intensifying syphilis and HIV prevention efforts among this subpopulation might reduce syphilis and HIV transmission overall in the Baltimore area.

Urbanization and the Regional Rainfall Climatology of the Baltimore Metropolitan Region  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A 10-year, high-resolution rainfall data set for the Baltimore metropolitan region is used to examine urbanization effects on the regional rainfall climatology and associated elements of the urban water cycle. Rainfall fields are developed at 1 km spatial resolution and 15-minute time resolution based on radar reflectivity observations from the Sterling, VA WSR-88D radar and rain gage observations from diverse networks in the region. The warm season (June - August) rainfall climatology for the Baltimore region exhibits sharp spatial gradients in a diverse array of statistical properties characterizing mean rainfall, rainfall extremes and rainfall occurrence. In addition to urbanization effects, these properties are linked to the effects of mountainous terrain to the west and land-water boundaries to the east. The rainfall data set covers the principal study watersheds of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES; a component of the NSF LTER program). Analyses of urbanization impacts on the storm event water balance are carried out for gaged watersheds in the BES region.

Improvements to lawn and garden equipment emissions estimates for Baltimore, Maryland.  

PubMed

Lawn and garden equipment are a significant source of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other pollutants in suburban and urban areas. Emission estimates for this source category are typically prepared using default equipment populations and activity data contained in emissions models such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) NONROAD model or the California Air Resources Board's (CARB) OFFROAD model. Although such default data may represent national or state averages, these data are unlikely to reflect regional or local differences in equipment usage patterns because of variations in climate, lot sizes, and other variables. To assess potential errors in lawn and garden equipment emission estimates produced by the NONROAD model and to demonstrate methods that can be used by local planning agencies to improve those emission estimates, this study used bottom-up data collection techniques in the Baltimore metropolitan area to develop local equipment population, activity, and temporal data for lawn and garden equipment in the area. Results of this study show that emission estimates of VOCs, particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrogen oxides (NO(x)) for the Baltimore area that are based on local data collected through surveys of residential and commercial lawn and garden equipment users are 24-56% lower than estimates produced using NONROAD default data, largely because of a difference in equipment populations for high-usage commercial applications. Survey-derived emission estimates of PM and VOCs are 24 and 26% lower than NONROAD default estimates, respectively, whereas survey-derived emission estimates for CO, CO2, and NO(x) are more than 40% lower than NONROAD default estimates. In addition, study results show that the temporal allocation factors applied to residential lawn and garden equipment in the NONROAD model underestimated weekend activity levels by 30% compared with survey-derived temporal profiles.

Income, social stratification, class, and private health insurance: a study of the Baltimore metropolitan area.  

PubMed

Most studies of inequalities and access to health care have used income as the sole indicator of social stratification. Despite the significance of social theory in health insurance research, there are no empirical studies comparing the ability of different models of social stratification to predict health insurance coverage. The aim of this study is to provide a comparative analysis using a variety of theory-driven indicators of social stratification and assess the relative strength of the association between these indicators and private health insurance. Data were collected in a 1993 telephone interview of a random digit dialing sample of the white population in the Baltimore Metropolitan Statistical Area. Indicators of social stratification included employment status, full-time work, education, occupation, industry, household income, firm size, and three types of assets: ownership, organizational, and skill/credential. The association between social stratification and private health insurance was strongest for those having higher household incomes, having attained at least a bachelor's degree, and working in a firm with more than 50 employees, followed by being an owner or manager, and by being employed. The addition of education and firm size improved the prediction of the household income model. The authors conclude that studies of inequalities in health insurance coverage can benefit from the inclusion of theory-driven indicators of social stratification such as human capital, labor market segmentation, and control over productive assets.

Urban Effects on Storm Event Hydrologic Response in Metropolitan Baltimore, MD  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate storm event hydrologic response across an array of urban basins through analyses of high-resolution hydrologic observations and numerical experimentation using a watershed model. Nine similarly sized (approximately 10 sq km) basins were chosen in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The basins range from Baisman Run, a forested control basin, to Moores Run, the flashiest basin in the contiguous United States (Smith et al. 2005 J. of Hydroclimatology). Analyses were carried out using high resolution discharge data (1- to 5-min from USGS) and rainfall radar data (1-km and 15-min, processed through Hydro-NEXRAD and bias corrected) for a ten-year period from 2000-2009. The fifty largest storm events were chosen for each basin using a peak over threshold approach to examine the following: variation in hydrologic response timescales, variation in response magnitude, variation of storm event type, clustering of storm events, effects of storm water infrastructure, and effects of impervious surfaces. Analyses point to the possible importance of soils and storage within the urban basin. Some questions - such as the role of antecedent moisture in urban hydrologic response - cannot be fully answered through analyses of available rainfall and discharge data. A watershed model for the Dead Run basin is being created to examine these questions. The Dead Run model is created using the Gridded Surface/ Subsurface Hydraulic Analysis (GSSHA) model from the Army Corps of Engineers. GSSHA is a physically-based, gridded model with 2-D overland flow and 1-D stream flow and infiltration processes. Results of numerical experiments using the Dead Run model will be presented to provide insight into the role of urban soils and elaboration of the drainage network through the strorm drain network for storm event hydrologic response.

Hydraulic Geometry Characteristics of Continuous-Record Streamflow-Gaging Stations on Four Urban Watersheds Along the Main Stem of Gwynns Falls, Baltimore County and Baltimore City, Maryland  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Four continuous-record streamflow-gaging stations are currently being operated by the U.S. Geological Survey on the main stem of Gwynns Falls in western Baltimore County and Baltimore City, Maryland. The four streamflow-gaging stations drain urban or suburban watersheds with significantly different drainage areas. In addition to providing continuous- record discharge data at these four locations, operation of these stations also provides a long-term record of channel geometry variables such as cross-sectional area, channel width, mean channel depth, and mean velocity that are obtained from physical measurement of the discharge at a variety of flow conditions. Hydraulic geometry analyses were performed using discharge-measurement data from four continuous-record streamflow-gaging stations on the main stem of Gwynns Falls. Simple linear regression was used to develop relations that (1) quantify changes in cross-sectional area, channel width, mean channel depth, and mean velocity with changes in discharge at each station, and (2) quantify changes in these variables in the Gwynns Falls watershed with changes in drainage area and annual mean discharge. Results of the hydraulic geometry analyses indicated that mean velocity is more responsive to changes in discharge than channel width and mean channel depth for all four streamflow-gaging stations on the main stem of Gwynns Falls. For the two largest and most developed watersheds, on Gwynns Falls at Villa Nova, and Gwynns Falls at Washington Boulevard at Baltimore, the slope of the regression lines, or hydraulic exponents, indicated that mean velocity was more responsive to changes in discharge than any of the other hydraulic variables that were analyzed. This was true even when considering changes in cross-sectional area with discharge, which incorporates the combined effects of channel width and mean channel depth. A comparison of hydraulic exponents for Gwynns Falls to average values from previous work indicated that the velocity exponents for all four stations on the Gwynns Falls are larger than the average value of 0.34. For stations 01589300 and 01589352, the exponents for mean velocity are about twice as large as the average value. Analyses of cross-sectional area, channel width, mean channel depth, and mean velocity in conjunction with changes in drainage area and annual mean discharge indicated that channel width is much more responsive to changes in drainage area and annual mean discharge than are mean channel depth or mean velocity. Cross-sectional area, which combines the effects of channel width and mean channel depth, was also found to be highly responsive to changes in drainage area and annual mean discharge.

Superfund Record of Decision (EPA Region 3): Kane and Lombard Site, Baltimore, Maryland (first remedial action), September 1987. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The Kane and Lombard site is an 8.4-acre parcel of undeveloped land in Baltimore, Maryland. Dumping and burning of construction debris, domestic trash, and drums occurred at the site from 1962 until 1967 when the city passed an ordinance prohibiting the open burning of refuse. Illegal dumping continued from 1967 until approximately 1984, during which time many citations were issued for illegal burning on the property. In 1980, Maryland State inspectors observed between 400 and 500 drums, the majority of which were rusted, damaged and contained holes. Following an onsite property assessment, EPA authorized the immediate removal of 1,163 drums in 1984. Of those, 822 drums were classified as empty and 341 drums contained contaminants which included: benzene, toluene, xylene, PAHs, PCBs, and heavy metals. Approximately six inches of soil below the drums were removed and disposed offsite. The site was stabilized by regrading, capping and revegetation. Currently, soil and ground water are contaminated with these prior drum contaminants.

Concentration, distribution, and bioavailability of mercury and methylmercury in sediments of Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, USA  

SciTech Connect

For the Chesapeake Bay, sediments in regions such as Baltimore Harbor have total mercury (Hg) concentrations that exceed environmental effects guidelines. However, fish concentrations do not appear elevated. Indeed, the factors controlling the transfer of sedimentary Hg, especially as monomethylmercury (MMHg), the most bioaccumulative form of Hg, to these aquatic organisms are poorly understood. To examine this, the authors have investigated the distribution and bioavailability of Hg and MMHg to benthic organisms in Baltimore harbor and the Chesapeake Bay, in Maryland, USA. The results discussed here show that sediment concentration for both total Hg and MMHg covaries with sediment organic content and that this parameter is a better predictor, for surface sediments, of concentration than iron content, acid volatile sulfide (AVS), or other factors. Furthermore, correlations between inorganic Hg and MMHg in benthic biota with sediment levels suggest that variation in the bioaccumulation factor (SBAF) for invertebrates is best explained in terms of sediment organic content. thus, the results from this study emphasize the importance of organic matter in regions removed from point source input in controlling both the concentration and bioavailability of MMHg to organisms. Because of the exponential nature of the SBAF/organic content relationship, there is a nonlinear organism response to MMHg in sediments that must be considered in any estimation of the toxic effect of sediment MMHg. Also, as a result of the decoupling between total Hg and MMHg concentration and bioavailability in surface sediments, any remediation evaluation of bioavailability and/or toxicity that is based only on total Hg concentration is unlikely to provide a reliable prediction.

Pathways to Depression: The Impact of Neighborhood Violent Crime on Inner-City Residents in Baltimore, Maryland, USA  

PubMed Central

Crime and neighborhood disorder may negatively impact the health of urban residents. Neighborhoods with high levels of violent crime may also increase residents’ risk of experiencing violence. Most studies supporting the assertion that neighborhood disorder impacts mental health have used residents’ own ratings of their neighborhoods. The present study examines the relationships among block-group level crime, perceived neighborhood disorder, violence experienced in the neighborhood, and depression. The sample was comprised of current and former drug users (n=786) nested in 270 block groups within Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Using path analysis, we tested the hypothesis that neighborhood violent crime has a direct impact on experiences of violence. Also, we hypothesized that neighborhood violence had a direct and indirect impact on depressive symptoms. Results support a model in which violence is associated with psychological distress through perceptions of neighborhood disorder, and through experiences of violence. We conclude that community and structural level interventions are needed to decrease neighborhood crime and improve residents’ perception of their neighborhood.

Gender differences in street economy and social network correlates of arrest among heroin injectors in Baltimore, Maryland.  

PubMed

In a sample of 761 heroin injectors in Baltimore, Maryland, correlates of arrest for drug-related and non-drug-related criminal offenses, by gender, were examined. This investigation examined gender differences in involvement in the drug economy and correlates of arrest. Correlates included roles in the street drug economy, social network attributes, and economic and demographic variables. Gender differences were found. Selling drugs was strongly associated with drug-related arrests for males. Steering (i.e., publicizing drug brands) was highly associated with drug-related arrests for females. Level of heroin addiction was associated with drug-related arrests for males, but not for females. The associations of social network variables with arrests also differed by gender. For females but not males, a higher number of females in one's network was associated with a lower frequency of arrests. For males, having at least one heroin injector in the personal network was associated with a decreased frequency of arrest, while for females the direction of the association was reversed. These findings suggest the importance of modeling drug behaviors by gender. PMID:12930885

Utilization patterns and correlates of retention among clients of the needle exchange program in Baltimore, Maryland.  

PubMed

NEP effectiveness at a population level depends on several factors, including the number of injection drug users (IDUs) retained, or consistently accessing services. Patterns of retention in the Baltimore Needle Exchange Program (BNEP) from 1994 to 2006 were calculated using enrollment surveys and client records. We used Andersen's Behavioral Model of Health Services Use to frame our examination of factors associated with retention. Client retention was measured in two ways: whether a client returned to the exchange within 12 months of enrollment and how many times a client returned within these 12 months. BNEP clients (N=12,388) were predominantly male (69%), African-American (73%), and >or=age 30 (86%). Nearly two-thirds (64%) of clients returned within 12 months of their first BNEP visit. The median number of return visits per client within 12 months was one (IQR: 0-5). Young age (<30), being married, having an injection drug use history of less than 20 years, and living farther from the BNEP site were characteristics independently associated with both measures of low retention in multivariate analysis. Among younger injectors, geographical proximity was a particularly important predictor of retention. Further insight into the influence of these factors may help in developing programmatic changes that will be effective in increasing retention. PMID:19464827

Assessing dietary intake among infants and toddlers 0--24 months of age in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.  

PubMed

OBJECTIVE: To characterize food and nutrient intake and develop a population-specific food list to be used as a comprehensive dietary assessment tool for Baltimore infants and toddlers aged 0--24 months. The data were used to inform the Growing Leaps and Bounds (GLB) program, which promotes early obesity prevention among Baltimore infants and toddlers.Research methods & procedures: A cross-sectional dietary survey using 24-hour recalls among randomly selected primary caregivers of infants and toddlers was conducted. RESULTS: Data were collected from 84 children, (response rate 61%) 45 boys; 39 girls. Mean daily energy intakes were 677 kcal, 988 kcal, and 1,123 kcal for children 0--6 months, 7--12 months and 13--24 months, respectively. Infants 0--6 months had higher percentage of energy from fat (48%) than infants 7--12 months (34%) and 13--24 months (31%). Mean daily intakes for all nutrients among 0--12 months old were >= Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI), while toddlers 13--24 months had inadequate vitamins A, D, and E intake. Breastfeeding occurred in 33% of infants and toddlers 0 to 6 months, while less than 3% of those aged 7 to 24 months were breastfed. A 104-item food list with eight food and drink categories was developed. CONCLUSIONS: Infants were formula fed with a higher frequency than they were breastfed. The consumption of high-sugar and high-fat foods (e.g. sweetened drinks, French fries) increased with each age group, which can increase the risk of childhood obesity. PMID:23622709

Social network predictors of disclosure of MSM behavior and HIV-positive serostatus among African American MSM in Baltimore, Maryland.  

PubMed

This study examined correlates of disclosure of MSM behavior and seropositive HIV status to social network members among 187 African American MSM in Baltimore, MD. 49.7% of participants were HIV-positive, 64% of their social network members (excluding male sex partners) were aware of their MSM behavior, and 71.3% were aware of their HIV-positive status. Disclosure of MSM behavior to network members was more frequent among participants who were younger, had a higher level of education, and were HIV-positive. Attributes of the social network members associated with MSM disclosure included the network member being HIV-positive, providing emotional support, socializing with the participant, and not being a female sex partner. Participants who were younger were more likely to disclose their positive HIV status. Attributes of social network members associated with disclosure of positive serostatus included the network member being older, HIV-positive, providing emotional support, loaning money, and not being a male sex partner.

Linking Nocturnal Eddy Fluxes to Land Use-Land Cover in a Heterogeneous Landscape Surrounding the Urban-suburban Tower near Baltimore, Maryland  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Anthropogenic activities in urban ecosystems represent the key driving force for local and regional climate change scenarios, producing the various pollutants that cause environmental change at the global scale: elevated carbon dioxide (CO2), increased ozone and nitrogen deposition, and elevated temperatures. Measurements of eddy fluxes in an urban-suburban landscape pose technical difficulties as sinks and sources of CO2 surrounding the tower are non-uniform. In a recent study, we stratified half-hourly values of eddy fluxes, i.e., carbon dioxide (Fco2), latent energy (LE), and sensible heat (H), according to wind sectors. Additionally, remotely sensed (spatial) data were stratified according to wind sectors around the Cub Hill tower near Baltimore, Maryland. We found that diurnal eddy fluxes were empirically dependent on remotely sensed metrics within the two-kilometer radius surrounding the tower. We hypothesized that nocturnal eddy fluxes, as stratified into wind sectors, will be similarly dependent on the land use-land cover (LULC). In the present study, we pooled the nocturnal half-hourly eddy fluxes during a 6-year period (2004-09) into a single data set, and stratified the data according to 24 wind sectors representing the wind direction during each half-hourly eddy flux measurement. We ask the following questions: 1) Are the nocturnal eddy fluxes inter-dependent with each other? 2) Do the average nocturnal eddy fluxes on a daily basis differ between wind sectors? 3) Which micrometeorological variables determine the differences in eddy fluxes between wind sectors? 4) Do differences in nocturnal eddy fluxes among wind sectors depend upon LULC? 5) Are the relationships between nocturnal eddy fluxes and LULC consistent during Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall? and 6) How do these nocturnal urban-suburban eddy fluxes compare with the nocturnal eddy fluxes in a nearby mixed deciduous rural forest? Results from the data analyses will be presented and discussed.

Evaluation of 3-D Air Quality System Remotely-Sensed Aerosol Optical Depth for the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan Air Shed  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Integrating satellite- and ground-based aerosol optical depth (AOD) observations with surface total fine particulate (PM2.5) and sulfate concentrations allows for a more comprehensive understanding of local- and urban-scale air quality. This study evaluates the utility of integrated databases being developed for NOAA and EPA through the 3D-AQS project by examining the relationship between remotely-sensed AOD and PM2.5 concentrations for each platform for the summer of 2004 and the entire year of 2005. We compare results for the Baltimore, MD/Washington, DC metropolitan air shed, incorporating AOD products from the Terra and GOES-12 satellites, AERONET sunphotometer, and ground-based lidar, and PM2.5 concentrations from five surface monitoring sites. The satellite-derived products include AOD from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Multi-angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR), as well as the GOES Aerosol/Smoke Product (GASP). The vertical profile of lidar backscatter is used to retrieve the planetary boundary layer (PBL) height in an attempt to capture only that fraction of the AOD arising from near surface aerosols. Adjusting the AOD data using platform- and season-specific ratios, calculated using the parameters of the regression equations, for two case studies resulted in a more accurate representation of surface PM2.5 concentrations when compared to a constant ratio that is currently being used in the NOAA IDEA product. This work demonstrates that quantitative relationships between remotely-sensed and in-situ aerosol observations in an integrated database can be computed and applied to improve the use of remotely-sensed observations for estimating surface concentrations.

Initial Results Using a Depolarization and Backscatter Unattended Lidar (DABUL2) System Operating at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In early 2005, the University of Maryland at Baltimore County Atmospheric Physics Group (http://alg.umbc.edu) took possession of a Depolarization and Backscatter Unattended Lidar (DABUL2) system. This instrument is the second version of this style lidar developed by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL). Over the past 10 years, the original NOAA DABUL lidar has collected data from a variety of locations all over the world from the Western Pacific tropics to the Arctic Ocean. This type of system is capable of continuous, unattended profiling of cloud and aerosol layers throughout the troposphere and into the lower stratosphere. The DABUL2 lidar consists of a pulsed laser source emitting at a wavelength of 532 nm, that is expanded to a 35 cm diameter beam before exiting the instrument. The large diameter beam maximizes eye-safety, resulting in a power density less than commercially available laser pointers and making the system more practical for unattended operations. Adequate signal-to-noise performance is achieved using a receiver with a narrow field- of-view (FOV), 0.4 nm bandpass filtering, and a high laser pulse repetition rate (2 kHz) to maximize signal averaging for a given time interval. Backscatter polarization properties are obtained by pulse-to-pulse alternating the polarization state of the outgoing laser beam with a Pockels cell and synchronously detecting the range-gated backscatter intensity from the atmosphere. The first measurements obtained at UMBC with the DABUL2 system occurred during spring of 2005. Data were recorded over several days during a variety of cloud and no-cloud conditions, both during day and nighttime background levels. Time coincident lidar data were also compared to a Micro-Pulse Lidar (MPL) system operating 40 km to the southwest, at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The MPL system did not have depolarization capability, but provided elastic scattering measurements that are useful for cross- calibration between the two instruments, as well providing insight into the spatio-temporal evolution of cloud and aerosol layers for regional-scale spatial distances. An analysis of time-coincident cirrus data for a particular case on 30 March 2005 showed a relatively high degree of correlation in cloud structure appearance, despite the significant distance between lidar measurements. Results from this comparison as well as other time-correlated data will be presented. In conjunction with wind trajectory information, multi-point UMBC/DABUL and GSFC/MPL measurements can help to better define spatial variability for different cloud and aerosol features for interpreting satellite data. With two simultaneous lidar measurements separated by 40 km, data from the UMBC/DABUL and GSFC/MPL locations will help assess the spatio-temporal representativeness of cloud features for CALIPSO overpasses in the Washington-Baltimore region and contribute to related trajectory modeling efforts. Furthermore, the depolarization capability of the DABUL2 system will further extend UMBC's role in helping to interpret CALIPSO data.

ELF and ALEX SURF WINTER WAVES: Lidar Intercomparison of Aerosol and Water Vapor Measurements in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area During the Winter Water Vapor Validation Experiments (WAVES) 2008 campaign.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Elastic and Raman lidar measurements were conducted to measure the vertical distribution of aerosols and water vapor during the Water Vapor Validation Experiments (WAVES) 2008 campaign by the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) Atmospheric Lidar Group at UMBC, at the same time as measurements at Howard University's Beltsville Research Station (26.5 km distant). The lidar profiles of atmospheric water vapor and aerosols allowed comparison for AURA/Aqua retrieval studies, by performing instrument accuracy assessments and data, generated by various independent active and passive remote sensing instruments for case studies of regional water vapor and aerosol sub-pixel variability. Integration of the lidar water vapor mixing ratios has been carried out to generate a column precipitable water vapor timeseries that can be compared to UMBC's SUOMINET station and Baltimore Bomem Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (BBAERI). Changes in atmospheric aerosol concentration and water vapor mixing ratios due to meteorological events observed in the lidar timeseries have been correlated to the vertical temperature timeseries of BBAERI and to modeling of the air mass over the Baltimore-Washington metro area with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model.

The Effect of Neighborhood Deprivation and Residential Relocation on Long-term Injection Cessation among Injection Drug Users (IDUs) in Baltimore, Maryland  

PubMed Central

Aims To determine the incidence of long-term injection cessation and its association with residential relocation and neighborhood deprivation. Design ALIVE (AIDS Linked to the Intravenous Experience) is a prospective cohort with semi-annual follow-up since 1988. Multi-level discrete time-to-event models were constructed to investigate individual and neighborhood-level predictors of long-term injection cessation. Setting Baltimore, USA Participants 1,697 active injectors from ALIVE with at least 8 semi-annual study visits. Measurements Long-term injection cessation was defined as three consecutive years without self-reported injection drug use. Findings 706 (42%) injectors achieved long-term cessation (incidence = 7.6 per 100 person-years). After adjusting for individual-level factors, long-term injection cessation was 29% less likely in neighborhoods in the third quartile of deprivation (Hazard Ratio [HR] =0.71, 95% CI:0.53–0.95) and 43% less likely in the highest quartile of deprivation (HR=0.57, 95% CI:0.43, 0.76) as compared to the first quartile. Residential relocation was associated with increased likelihood of long-term injection cessation (HR=1.55, 95% CI:1.31, 1.82); however the impact of relocation varied depending on the deprivation in the destination neighborhood. Compared to those who stayed in less deprived neighborhoods, relocation from highly deprived to less deprived neighborhoods had the strongest positive impact on long-term injection cessation (HR=1.96, 95% CI:1.50, 2.57), while staying in the most deprived neighborhoods was detrimental (HR=0.76, 95% CI:0.63, 0.93). Conclusions Long-term cessation of injection of opiates and cocaine occurred frequently following a median of 9 years of injection and contextual factors appear to be important. Our findings suggest that improvements in the socio-economic environment may improve the effectiveness of cessation programs.

Employee injuries and convenience store robberies in selected metropolitan areas.  

PubMed

The number of robberies and robbery-related injuries to employees in convenience stores (C-stores) during 1992 or 1993 were estimated for selected metropolitan areas around Miami and Tampa, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Baltimore, Maryland; Boston, Massachusetts; Detroit, Michigan; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, and Spartanburg, South Carolina; and Arlington, Chesterfield, and Henrico counties, Virginia. Of the 1835 C-store robberies that occurred during 1992 or 1993 in all selected areas (excluding Atlanta and Chicago), there were 12 homicides of C-store employees; 219 nonfatal injuries of C-store employees; 1071 robberies in which there were no injuries but a weapon was used, displayed, or implied toward a C-store employee; and 132 robberies in which there was no injury and no weapon used, but an employee was struck, pushed, or shoved. Corresponding figures for the 238 robberies that occurred in Chicago during January to June 1993, and for which victim employment status was unknown (customer or employee) were three homicides, 53 nonfatal injuries, 120 attacks in which a weapon was used but there was no injury, and 57 attacks in which a person was struck, pushed, or shoved but there was no injury. The proportion of robberies that resulted in a homicide or injury to an employee varied among selected areas from .03 to .25. The proportion of homicides and injuries to an employee was. 14 or higher for target areas in Baltimore (.24), Detroit (.25), and Virginia (.14); the proportion to an employee or customer was .24 in Chicago. The conclusions from these data are that the risk of employee injury in C-store robberies was high in selected metropolitan areas. This underscores the need for effective robbery prevention programs to reduce injury. In addition, further research is needed to determine the effectiveness of prevention programs in the C-store industry and the application of these programs to other retail industries. PMID:8823663

Effects of Maryland's law banning Saturday night special handguns on crime guns  

PubMed Central

Objectives—To determine the effects of a 1988 Maryland law that banned "Saturday night special" handguns on the types of guns used in crime. To determine if controls on the lawful market for handguns affect the illegal market as well. Setting—Baltimore, Maryland, and 15 other US cities participating in a crime gun tracing project. Methods—Cross sectional comparison of the proportion of crime guns that are banned by the Maryland law, comparing Baltimore, MD with 15 other cities outside of Maryland. Multivariate linear regression analysis to determine if observed differences between Baltimore and 15 other cities are explained by demographic or regional differences among the cities rather than Maryland's law. Results—Among crime guns, a gun banned by Maryland's law is more than twice as likely (relative risk (RR) 2.3, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.0 to 2.5) to be the subject of a crime gun trace request in 15 other cities combined, than in Baltimore. Among homicide guns, a crime especially relevant for public safety, a comparable difference (RR 2.1, 95% CI 1.1 to 4.2) was observed. The proportion of Baltimore's crime guns that are banned is 12 percentage points lower than would be expected based on its demographic and regional characteristics alone. Among crime guns purchased after 1990, a much smaller proportion in Baltimore are banned models than in 15 other cities. Conclusions—Maryland's law has reduced the use of banned Saturday night specials by criminals in Baltimore. Contrary to the claims of some opponents of gun control laws, regulation of the lawful market for firearms can also affect criminals.

DRAGONs DISCOVER Air Quality over Baltimore  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The AERONET program is addressing issues of high resolution aerosol validation and internal retrieval comparisons by establishing short-term mesoscale networks called Distributed Regional Aerosol Gridded Observation Network or DRAGON. The first, DRAGON-USA, was a mesoscale gridded network of 44 sun and sky scanning spectral photometers established in the Washington - Baltimore Metropolitan area at a grid spacing of approximately 10 km to assess the daytime aerosol spatial distributions during the summer of 2011. Concurrently the first of four Earth Venture Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and VERtically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality (DISCOVER AQ) campaigns, executed an intensive ground and airborne measurement campaign over the Washington-Baltimore I-95 corridor to improve remote sensing capabilities for near surface air quality assessment during July 2011. Contributing elements of this campaign include the NASA Langley airborne HSRL, ground based lidars, PM 2.5 and surface meteorology, and the Langley Aerosol Research Group Experiment (LARGE) in situ measurements on board the NASA P-3B. Repeat profiles were made over 6 supersites with AERONET observations on 14 flight days in July allowing numerous coincidences under a variety of aerosol conditions. Additional in and out of network profiles were flown over AERONET sites by the UMD Cessna 402B aircraft with in situ scattering and absorption measurements. These combined 4-D characterizations of optical, microphysical and chemical aerosol properties provide a comprehensive understanding of the relationships between AERONET derived aerosol properties and in situ measurements for fine mode dominated urban aerosols, assessment of new AERONET aerosol retrievals and further provides a detailed database for high resolution satellite and model validation. Preliminary results indicate a SSA ~0.02 lower along the I-95 corridor on heavily polluted days and AOD gradients highly variable under a variety of conditions including adjacent to moderate convective clouds. These and other comparisons to in situ and RS measurements will be illustrated as well as discussion of future DRAGON campaigns in east Asia.

Characteristics of ozone in the Baltimore-Washington area: 1-hour average concentrations  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this study was develop a 15-year climatology (1981-1995) for the 1-hour diurnal maximum ozone concentration (DMOC) at the surface for the Baltimore-Washington area. The area was divided into four regions: Baltimore, Washington, non-urban Maryland, and non-urban northern Virginia. In each area, the time series of the DMOC were divided into four terms representing different behavioral time scales: the long-term mean; the mean intra-annual perturbation, the interannual perturbation; and the synoptic perturbation. Histogram of the zone exceedance were created by month and by concentration. Non-meteorological trend for ozone over the fifteen year period were developed for Washington and Baltimore. A linear model was used to determine the meteorological trends and remove these trends from the data to obtain the non-meteorological trends. The report discusses various problems with obtaining a satisfactory measure of the non-meteorological trend.

Marylanders defeat Philadelphia: yellow fever updated.  

PubMed Central

Those strategic points which influence this amateur historian to declare a victory for Baltimore and Maryland over Philadelphia are: I. Based upon clinical and epidemiological data, two Marylanders, Potter and Davidge, were among the first to contest Rush and his contagion theory; they told him so and published their views. To prove this point, Potter went to the extreme of inoculating himself with presumedly infected material. Stubbins Ffirth, a young University of Pennsylvania medical student, did the same four years later. To Rush's credit was ultimate abandonment of his originally held views. II. John Crawford, of Baltimore, although not the originator of the insect concept of transmission of infectious agents, published his concepts in 1811. III. Henry Rose Carter, a Maryland graduate, clearly delineated, in 1898, that after identification of an index case of yellow fever an extrinsic incubation period was necessary before the evolution of secondary cases. IV. James Carroll, another University of Maryland graduate, who worked as Deputy under Walter Reed with Lazear and Agramonte, helped prove Finlay's original concept that the Aedes aegypti mosquito was the natural vector of yellow fever. Carroll himself was the first experimentally induced case. V. Studies in primates provide new approaches for management of yellow fever. Nutritional support and treatment with specific anti-viral agents may be useful for therapy of human yellow fever. Maryland members of the Climatological are mindful of Philadelphia's rich medical heritage and of the many battles won in the City of Brotherly Love. Physicians in colonial and early America experienced The best and worst of times, theirs was an age of foolishness and belief, of incredulity and light, of darkness, despair and hope. This tale of two cities ends in peace. Images Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Fig. 3 Fig. 4 Fig. 5 Fig. 6 Fig. 7 Fig. 8 Fig. 10 Fig. 11

Lidar Measurements of Summer Low Level Jet Events over Baltimore  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Remote sensing of atmospheric aerosols and water vapor, in the lower troposphere, have been carried out at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) by the Atmospheric Lidar Group during summer low level jet events over Maryland for two years and especially during the Water Vapor Variability - Satellite/Sondes (WAVES) campaigns of 2006 and 2007. For lofted layers encountered the aerosol lidar ratio (Sa) was computed to determine the aerosol extinction and subsequently the optical depth. Aerosol stratification and disturbance of nocturnal boundary layer, observed by lidar at UMBC, was confirmed by Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) wind profiler measurements. The vertical and horizontal distribution of the low level jet was identified with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to characterize the nature and possible effects of the incoming low level jet air mass on surface ozone within the boundary layer. Ground measurements from MDE monitoring stations and lidar optical depth are compared to evaluate aerosol loading due to long range transport in the boundary layer.

Neighborhood Psychosocial Hazards and Cardiovascular Disease: The Baltimore Memory Study  

PubMed Central

Objectives. We examined associations between cardiovascular disease and neighborhood psychosocial hazards, such as violent crime, abandoned buildings, and signs of incivility, to evaluate whether features of place are associated with older adult health. Methods. We analyzed first-visit data from the Baltimore Memory Study of randomly selected residents aged 50 to 70 years (n=1140) of 65 contiguous neighborhoods in Baltimore, Maryland. We looked for associations between self-reports of history of selected cardiovascular diseases and scores on the 12-item neighborhood psychosocial hazards scale. Results. After adjustment for established individual risk factors for cardiovascular disease, residents in neighborhoods with scores in the highest quartile of the psychosocial hazards scale had more than 4 times higher odds of a history of myocardial infarction and more than 3 times higher odds of myocardial infarction, stroke, transient ischemic attack, or intermittent claudication compared with residents living in neighborhoods scoring in the lowest quartile. Conclusions. Neighborhood psychosocial hazards were significantly associated with self-reported cardiovascular disease after adjustment for individual-level risk factors. This is consistent with the hypothesis that environmental stress plays a role in the etiology of cardiovascular disease.

Comparison of the ELF/AHRSL/CALIPSO Lidar Measurements During the Initial Summer Validation Period over the Baltimore Region.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Summer tropospheric validation of the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) data has been performed by comparing measurements collected by the Elastic Lidar Facility (ELF) at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) and NASA's Airborne High Spectral Resolution Lidar (AHSRL) during the initial validation period. Lidar measurements were taken in nearly the same air mass in space and time during AHSRL overflights (Hostetler et. al., this meeting). Coincidence between the three lidars is difficult and we will examine the lidar attenuated backscatter coefficient and the height and thickness of the planetary boundary layer (PBL) from each instrument statistically for periods of one hour prior to and after each overpass and for Calipso overpasses within 100 km from ELF. Optical depth, and extinction were also derived for the Baltimore-metro region for these overflights.

HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, and hepatitis prevention needs of Native Americans living in Baltimore: in their own words.  

PubMed

A needs assessment funded by the Center of Substance Abuse Prevention was conducted in 2005-2006 to determine the HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, and hepatitis prevention needs of Native Americans living in Baltimore, Maryland. We used a community-based participatory approach to gain an in-depth understanding of local Native American health service needs. Community stakeholders and key informants embedded in the local Native American population were consulted at each stage of the research planning process. Two complementary methodologies (focus groups and surveys) produced a holistic assessment of the population's needs, risks, and strengths and uncovered the social and cultural contexts in which health risk behaviors unfold. The use of these methods within a participatory framework produced a more complete portrait of the service needs of the Native American population in Baltimore. Findings from this study support the necessity for future HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, and hepatitis prevention programming for urban Native Americans. PMID:18190277

First Results from BBAERI: The Baltimore Bomem Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present the first results from the Baltimore Bomem Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (BBAERI), a commercial prototype Fourier Transform Infrared Interferometer (FTIR) atmospheric sounding system. Developed by ABB Bomem in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW), the first prototype was christened BBAERI and deployed to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). With similar operational specifications and capabilities to the AERI's designed and built by UW for the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program, BBAERI opens a new window on atmospheric remote sensing. Side-by-side operation of BBAERI with the portable UW AERI-00 deployed at UMBC in August 2001 yielded excellent results and confirmed the radiometric calibration of BBAERI. Temperature and moisture profiles retrieved from BBAERI spectra will be presented and compared to available nearby radiosonde soundings. A basic cloud clearing algorithm which utilizes the BBAERI spectrum to distinguish between clear and cloudy scenes will also be presented. Retrievals of boundary layer and mean free tropospheric carbon monoxide abundances indicate significant local pollution sources, as expected for an urban location, as well as synoptic and seasonal variations. BBAERI started autonomous operation at UMBC on June 22, 2001, and will see field deployments from 2002-2004 to the United States Coast Guard Chesapeake Light lighthouse platform 25~km due east of Virginia Beach, VA for validation of NASA's Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder (AIRS).

NERL PM research monitoring platforms: Baltimore, Fresno, and Phoenix. Data report for February 1995--April 1998  

SciTech Connect

EPA`s National Exposure Research Laboratory, NERL, established PM research monitoring platforms in three metropolitan areas with differing PM size and composition characteristics: Phoenix, AZ (established February 1995), an arid, desert dust dominated western US city where the PM10 mass is dominated by the coarse fraction; Baltimore, MD (established January 1997), a typical eastern city with high sulfates; and Fresno, CA (established June 1997); characteristic of a western area with high nitrates. The primary objective of the research platforms was to collect daily, ambient air quality data to relate the chemical and/or physical properties of PM to support exposure, source apportionment, receptor modeling, and health effects studies. Daily fine and coarse particle mass and composition data, meteorology data, and data for other parameters relevant to the characterization of the size and composition of PM were collected, including: 24 hour integrated and hourly maximum mass concentrations, metals (XRF), organic and elemental carbon.

Filmless radiology at the Baltimore VA Medical Center: a 9 year retrospective.  

PubMed

The transition from conventional film based to filmless operation at the Baltimore VA Medical Center in 1993 was successful and has resulted in a number of clinical and economic benefits. The subsequent integration of the Department of VA hospitals in Maryland into a single network, the VA Maryland Health Care System, resulted in the opportunity to establish a 'virtual' radiology and nuclear medicine department. This integrated department is based upon a wide area network in which outlying medical centers utilize a central HIS/RIS and a central commercial Picture archival and communication system (PACS) as well as a VA 'home grown' image management and communication system, the VISTA imaging system. The creation of this virtual radiology/nuclear medicine department has resulted in additional savings and improvements in clinical care. The benefits of the PACS were made possible, to a large extent, by the high level of integration of the PACS and medical modalities with the hospital information and transcription systems. Our experience suggests that it is absolutely essential to integrate the PACS into the patient's electronic medical record in order to maximize efficiency and clinical effectiveness of the system.

Costs to Medicaid of advancing immunosuppression in an urban HIV-infected patient population in Maryland.  

PubMed

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is increasingly an urban disease in the United States, and Medicaid is the principal payer of the health care costs of patients with HIV. We wished to determine the costs to Medicaid of patients in Maryland infected with HIV as immunosuppression progresses, and to determine how costs varied by demographic characteristics of the patient. We analyzed combined economic and clinical data in patients from the Johns Hopkins HIV Service, the provider of primary and specialty care for a majority of HIV-infected patients in the Baltimore metropolitan region. All patients were enrolled in Medicaid and received care longitudinally in Maryland from July 1992 to June 1995. Monthly Medicaid payments were calculated for all inpatient and outpatient services by sex, race, age, use of injecting drugs, CD4+ count (>500, 201-500, 51-200, < or =50 cells/mm3), several opportunistic diseases, and death. Lifetime costs were also calculated by use of a Markov simulation. During 13,174 person-months of follow-up in 606 patients, a total of $18,223,700 in Medicaid payments was made. Mean monthly payments ranged from $2,436 (SE $171) for patients with CD4+ counts < or =50 cells/mm3 to $1,015 (SE $177) for patients with CD4+ counts >500 cells/mm3. Mean monthly inpatient costs ranged from $1,355 (SE $131) for CD4+ counts < or =50 cells/mm3 and $617 (SE $164) for CD4- counts >500 cells/mm3. For those with CD4+ counts < or =50 cells/mm3, outpatient pharmacy costs averaged $515 (SE $57) monthly, second only to inpatient costs. In bivariate analysis, costs were significantly higher (p = .013) in men (mean $1696; SE $126) than in women (mean $1,208; SE $101), though the difference was not significant with multivariate adjustment. Cytomegalovirus retinitis was the most costly opportunistic disease, with mean monthly costs of $7,825 (SE $1,141) within the 6 mo after diagnosis. Within 6 mo of death, mean monthly costs are $4,600 (SE $424). Lifetime costs for treating an HIV-infected patient who presents with a CD4+ count >500 cells/mm3 are $133,500 over 8.3 years of life. We concluded that in the clinic where the analysis was done, average costs to Medicaid of treating patients increase more than two-fold as the CD4+ count declines from >500 cells/mm3 to < or =50 cells/mm3. Interventions that decrease hospitalization, opportunistic disease, and the costs of terminal care may be most likely to decrease overall costs. Demographic patient characteristics do not affect costs significantly when access to care is comparable. PMID:9117454

GIS-based study on spatial growth of bi-polar with corridor in the Baltimore-Washington region in the USA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The sprawl process in the metropolitan area of the Baltimore-Washington is a typical Bi-polar growing process among corridors. This paper studies the urbanization of Baltimore-Washington region within 200 years. By using the GIS software Mapinfo7.0, we gained the ratio changes of urbanized area to non-urbanized area and the radii of incircle and circumcircle of two regions. Then we took the former as integrated study and the latter as contrastive study. We find that the metropolitan growth has a 30-40-year cycle phenomenon. Both core growth and corridor growth form the urban expansion of Baltimore and Washington, but each of them has different rates and characteristics. This process can be described as "point-line-net-surface growth model". And the urban growth of Baltimore is better than Washington. Usually, traditional studies of spatial sprawls of Bi-polar of growth with Corridor Structures take the Bi-polar of growth with Corridor Structures as a whole to study the expanding process, while this paper tries to reveal the law of the spatial growth of Bi-polar of growth with Corridor Structures by contrasting the growths of cores, the growths of corridors and the growths of core and corridor in two regions. Moreover, this study is built on the GIS platform and takes the GIS as a research base by using GIS software to access and processing of remote sensing data. At the same time, the paper uses the ecological processes model to carry out quantitative study to deepen its understanding on the Bi-polar growing with corridors structure, and this will conducive to scientific urban and regional planning.

Chaos at Maryland  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

US News and World Report has ranked the Maryland Chaos Group number one in the country (tied with University of Texas, Austin) for Non-linear Dynamics, or Chaos. Chaos is an interdisciplinary science founded on the idea that "nonlinear deterministic systems can behave in an apparently unpredictable and chaotic manner." The site includes brief descriptions of the group's research interests as well as a Chaos Pictures Gallery. The publications section will be of most value to researchers as it contains general references, abstracts, and papers. The online papers (which come in a variety of formats) consist of preprints and published articles on bifurcations, fractal basin boundaries, quantum chaos, general chaos, and more. Papers and abstracts are searchable.

Analysis of High Frequency Water Quality Data in the Baltimore Ecosystem Study LTER  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have deployed Satlantic SUNA optical nitrate sensors and YSI specific conductivity and temperature sensors at 6 USGS stream monitoring stations in a nested watershed design within Dead Run watershed, a highly urbanized catchment in Baltimore County, Maryland, USA, where long-term weekly sampling is also conducted for the Baltimore long-term ecological research (LTER) project. Data are collected every 30 minutes and transmitted to a central location via cellular modem. We have developed web services to enable near-real-time viewing of the data by project personnel from any location. Data from high frequency sensors show patterns and trends that are not discernible from weekly sampling, such as diurnal signals in nitrate and specific conductance observed at base flow and constant discharge. Nitrate exhibits a strong diurnal signal with mean concentrations ranging from 1 to 2 mg/L, with higher concentrations observed in headwater streams. Specific conductance has a wavelength similar to the nitrate signal, with values ranging from 1 to 1.5 mS/cm. During storm events both nitrate and specific conductance are diluted with minimum concentrations occurring at peak stream discharge. As streams recover both nitrate and specific conductance return to pre-storm conditions and the diurnal signals reappear. For storm events, a mixing model can be applied to the specific conductance data to infer old water contributions to stream discharge as a function of scale. Comparing storms across nested watersheds shows that first-order watersheds produce the highest fraction of old water, and that the fraction of old water contribution decreases with increasing watershed scale. Old water contributions increase with decreasing storm size at all watershed scales, with an old water contribution as high as 70 percent in headwater streams for small storms. We have also applied spectral analysis to the high frequency sensor data to compare to the 13-year weekly data record by the Baltimore LTER. Spectral analysis shows that fractal scaling is observed for both weekly and high frequency data and that the nitrate data exhibit the same fractal slope across all frequencies.

Spent Fuel Transportation Package Response to the Baltimore Tunnel Fire Scenario  

SciTech Connect

On July 18, 2001, a freight train carrying hazardous (non-nuclear) materials derailed and caught fire while passing through the Howard Street railroad tunnel in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC), one of the agencies responsible for ensuring the safe transportation of radioactive materials in the United States, undertook an investigation of the train derailment and fire to determine the possible regulatory implications of this particular event for the transportation of spent nuclear fuel by railroad. Shortly after the accident occurred, the USNRC met with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB, the U.S. agency responsible for determining the cause of transportation accidents), to discuss the details of the accident and the ensuing fire. Following these discussions, the USNRC assembled a team of experts from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Center for Nuclear Waste Regulatory Analyses (CNWRA), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to determine the thermal conditions that existed in the Howard Street tunnel fire and analyze the effects of this fire on various spent fuel transportation package designs. The Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) code, developed by NIST, was used to determine the thermal environment present in the Howard Street tunnel during the fire. The FDS results were used as boundary conditions in the COBRA-SFS and ANSYS® computer codes to evaluate the thermal performance of different package designs. The staff concluded that larger transportation packages resembling the HOLTEC Model No. HI STAR 100 and TransNuclear Model No. TN-68 would withstand a fire with thermal conditions similar to those that existed in the Baltimore tunnel fire event with only minor damage to peripheral components. This is due to their sizable thermal inertia and design specifications in compliance with currently imposed regulatory requirements. The staff also concluded that some components of smaller transportation packages resembling the NAC Model No. LWT, despite placement within an ISO container, could degrade. USNRC staff evaluated the radiological consequences of the package responses to the Baltimore tunnel fire. Though components in some packages heated up beyond their service temperatures, the staff determined that there would be no significant dose as a result of the fire for any of these and similar packages.

Trends in emissions and concentrations of air pollutants in the lower troposphere in the Baltimore/Washington airshed from 1997 to 2011  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Trends in the composition of the lower atmosphere (0-1500 m altitude) and surface air quality over the Baltimore/Washington area and surrounding states were investigated for the period from 1997 to 2011. We examined emissions, ground-level observations and long-term aircraft measurements to characterize trends in air pollution. The USEPA Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) program reported substantial decreases in point sources resulting from national and regional control measures; these decreases are definitely reflected in the ground-level observations. The decreasing trend of CO column contents is ~8.0 Dobson Unit (DU) decade-1, corresponding to ~350 ppbv decade-1 in the lower troposphere. Satellite observations of long-term, near-surface CO show ~40% decrease over western Maryland between 2000 and 2011, the same magnitude as indicated by aircraft measurements over upwind regions of Baltimore/Washington aished. After compensating for inter-annual temperature variations, historical aircraft measurements suggest the daily net production of tropospheric ozone over Baltimore/Washington area decreases from ~20 ppbv in the late 1990s to ~7 ppbv in the early 2010s during the ozone season. A decrease in the long-term ozone column content is observed as ~2.0 DU decade-1 in the lowest 1500 m, corresponding to ~13 ppbv decade-1 decrease. Back trajectory cluster analysis demonstrates that emissions of air pollutants from Ohio and Pennsylvania through Maryland influence column contents of downwind ozone in the lower atmosphere. The trends of air pollutants reveal the success of regulations implemented over the last decade and the importance of region wide emission controls over the eastern United States.

Body burdens of mercury, lead, selenium and copper among Baltimore newborns  

PubMed Central

Umbilical cord blood or serum concentrations of mercury, lead, selenium and copper were measured with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry in a population of 300 infants born Baltimore, Maryland. Geometric mean values were 1.37 ?g/L (95% confidence interval: 1.27, 1.48) for mercury; 0.66 ?g/dL (95% CI: 0.61, 0.71) for lead; and 38.62 ?g/dL (95% CI: 36.73, 40.61) for copper. Mean selenium was 70.10 ?g/L (95% CI: 68.69, 70.52). Mercury, selenium and copper levels were within exposure ranges reported among similar populations, whereas the distribution of lead levels was lower than prior reports; only one infant had a cord blood lead above 10 ?g/dL. Levels of selenium were significantly correlated with concentrations of lead (Spearman’s ? = 0.20) and copper (Spearman’s ? = 0.51). Multivariable analyses identified a number of factors associated with one of more of these exposures. These included: increasing maternal age (increased lead); Asian mothers (increased mercury and lead, decreased selenium and copper); higher umbilical cord serum n-3 fatty acids (increased mercury, selenium and copper), mothers using Medicaid (increased lead); increasing gestational age (increased copper); increasing birthweight (increased selenium); older neighborhood housing stock (increased lead and selenium); and maternal smoking (increased lead). This work provides additional information about contemporary prenatal element exposures and can help identify groups at risk of atypical exposures.

MPL Baltimore mutation and thrombocytosis: case report and literature review.

Thrombocytosis is a common finding and is a frequent cause of referral for further investigation. The MPL Baltimore (Lys39Asn) mutation has been reported as a cause of thrombocytosis in 7% of African Americans. We describe an 11-month-old Ethiopian Jewish boy referred for evaluation of thrombocytosis who was found to be homozygous for MPL Baltimore. So far, there is no indication whether patients with thrombocytosis who have this mutation, particularly homozygotes, are at increased risk of thrombotic or hemorrhagic complications. Nevertheless, this entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of every patient with thrombocytosis, particularly those of African origin. PMID:23511495

Disparities in cognitive functioning by race/ethnicity in the Baltimore Memory Study.  

PubMed Central

The Baltimore Memory Study is a cohort study of the multilevel determinants of cognitive decline in 50-70-year-old randomly selected residents of specific city neighborhoods. Prior studies have demonstrated that cognitive function differs by race/ethnicity, with lower scores in minorities than in whites, but the underlying basis for these differences is not understood. Studies have differed in the rigor with which they evaluated and controlled for such important confounding variables as socioeconomic status (SES), health-related behaviors, comorbid illnesses, and factors in the physical environment. The goal of this study was to describe differences in neurobehavioral test scores by race/ethnicity, before and after control for a four-dimensional measure of SES and health-related behaviors and health conditions, in a cross-sectional analysis of first visit data. Random samples of households in the study area were selected until enrollment goals were reached. Among the 2,351 persons on whom eligibility was determined, 60.8% were scheduled for an enrollment visit; of these, 1,140 (81.3%) were enrolled and tested. These study participants were 34.3% male and 65.7% female and were from 65 Baltimore, Maryland, neighborhoods. After adjustment for age, sex, and testing technician, there were large and statistically significant differences in neurobehavioral test scores by race/ethnicity, with African-American scores lower than those for whites, for both men and women. After adjustment for individual SES (educational status, household income, household assets, and occupational status), the average difference declined by 25.8%. After additional adjustment for SES, health-related behaviors and health conditions, and blood lead, the average difference declined another 10%, but large differences persisted; African Americans had test scores that averaged 0.43 standard deviation lower than those for whites across all neurobehavioral tests. These differences were present in all cognitive domains, including tests that would not be characterized as susceptible to differential item functioning by race/ethnicity, suggesting that the results are not due to race/ethnicity-associated measurement error.

Metropolitan Lima: area profile.  

PubMed

This profile of metropolitan Lima, Peru, covers administrative divisions; population growth; age distribution; ethnicity and religion; housing and households; education and health care; economic activity, income, and consumption; transport and communication; and sources of information. Nearly 30% of Peru's entire population and 42% of its urban population live in Lima. The trend continues, yet Lima's urban primacy is waning due to the growth of some regional centers like Trujillo and Chimbote. Lima is still almost 10 times as large as the country's next ranking cities, Trujillo on the northern coast and Arequipa in the south. Peru's main administrative divisions are the 24 departments, of which the Department of Lima is one. These departments are further divided into 156 provinces. Greater Lima consists of 2 such provinces, the province of Lima and the constitutional province of Callao. Although the population of Lima continues to grow, its rate of growth slowed from about 5.5% during the 1960s to about 3.9% in the 1970s. Current projections estimate a metropolitan population of 6.7 million by 1990. On the whole, Lima's age structure is somewhat older than that of the rest of Peru. The median age of the population is 22.3 years, compared to a national figure of 20.4. The proportion of persons over age 65 is only 3.6%, lower than the national average of 4.1%, due to the tendency of in-migration to concentrate people of intermediate ages in the cities. Almost 400,000 inhabitants of greater Lima are bilingual in Spanish and an indigenous language. As elsewhere in Peru, the dominant religion is Roman Catholicism. Lima is a spread out city with few high rise buildings due to the danger of earthquakes. Only 12% of Lima's households are found in apartment buildings. As in other cities of Latin America, the formal housing market is beyond the reach of a major segment of the population. Consequently, much of the urban settlement has occurred through informal self-help construction. Only 2.7% of the metropolitan population over age 15 is illiterate, down from 5.4% in 1972 and 7.7% in 1961. In 1981 Lima had 93 hospitals with a total of 12,640 beds. In addition there were 102 health centers and 10 sanitary posts. Lima's economically active population totaled 1.53 million in 1981, 71% of whom were men. On average, each household has 1.8 income earners, and only 17% have more than 2. A 1978 survey revealed that the families of Lima spend an average of 45.2% of their incomes on food, 15.6% on housing and utilities, 9.8% on transport and communication, 7.4% on education, sports, and cultural activities, 7.3% on clothing, and 7.0% on furniture and housing maintenance.

Incorporation of water-use summaries into the StreamStats web application for Maryland  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Approximately 25,000 new households and thousands of new jobs will be established in an area that extends from southwest to northeast of Baltimore, Maryland, as a result of the Federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, with consequent new demands on the water resources of the area. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Maryland Department of the Environment, has extended the area of implementation and added functionality to an existing map-based Web application named StreamStats to provide an improved tool for planning and managing the water resources in the BRAC-affected areas. StreamStats previously was implemented for only a small area surrounding Baltimore, Maryland, and it was extended to cover all BRAC-affected areas. StreamStats could provide previously published streamflow statistics, such as the 1-percent probability flood and the 7-day, 10-year low flow, for U.S. Geological Survey data-collection stations and estimates of streamflow statistics for any user-selected point on a stream within the implemented area. The application was modified for this study to also provide summaries of water withdrawals and discharges upstream from any user-selected point on a stream. This new functionality was made possible by creating a Web service that accepts a drainage-basin delineation from StreamStats, overlays it on a spatial layer of water withdrawal and discharge points, extracts the water-use data for the identified points, and sends it back to StreamStats, where it is summarized for the user. The underlying water-use data were extracted from the U.S. Geological Survey's Site-Specific Water-Use Database System (SWUDS) and placed into a Microsoft Access database that was created for this study for easy linkage to the Web service and StreamStats. This linkage of StreamStats with water-use information from SWUDS should enable Maryland regulators and planners to make more informed decisions on the use of water resources in the BRAC area, and the technology should be transferrable to other geographic areas.

The purpose of this investigation was to test (validate in computer modeling terminology) the mixing zone model CORMIX (CORnell MIXing Zone Expert System) using measured thermal plume data from the four Maryland power plants (Calvert Cliffs, Chalk Point, Dickerson, and Wagner). These facilities were chosen to represent a range of discharge environments used by power plants in the state, including a large freshwater river (Potomac), a narrow tidal estuary (Baltimore Harbor). The availability of extensive historical thermal plume data provided an excellent source for validating the model and demonstrating its utility and limitations in a variety of circumstances. CORMIX also idealizes the physical configuration of the receiving water. This study concludes that users of CORMIX expert system need to be aware of these limitations in applying the model in complex situations, especially where validation data are not available to check model results.

Tropospheric O3 Retrievals from the Baltimore Bomem Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (BBAERI) during AIRS Validation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present the first results of an algorithm to retrieve tropospheric ozone abundances from the 1000 to 1100 cm-1 region of infrared spectra. This retrieval algorithm will be used to monitor tropospheric ozone levels and, in conjunction with meteorological observations, to determine the origins of the observed ozone. Our instrument, BBAERI, was built by ABB Bomem of Quebec, Canada and delivered to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in March 2000. BBAERI's maximum optical path difference of 1 cm yields an apodized resolution of 1 cm-1. Strong emission/absorption in the 10 ? m region of the infrared ( 1000-1100 cm-1 ) results from the ? 3 vibrational rotational transitions in the ozone molecule and gives rise to the spectral feature of interest. Spectral line spacing and pressure broadening do not allow an instrument of this resolution to resolve any of the lines, just the band shape. The retrieval consists of a statistical regression using eigenvector decomposition to constrain the solution. Regression coefficients are calculated from 2730 ozonesonde profiles varying in latitude from 25oS to 65oN. The regression is followed by a physical retrieval utilizing the K Compressed Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Algorithm (KCARTA) developed by Dr.L.Larrabee Strow and his group at UMBC. Validation results will be presented from field measurements taken in Huntsville Alabama November 2002 and the AIRS BBAERI Ocean Validation Experiment (ABOVE) at the Chesapeake Lighthouse June 2003. Ozonesondes used for validation were flown by Dr.Mike Newchurch, Mohammed Ayoub and Jing Song from The University of Alabama Huntsville. Additional ground ozone measurements were supplied by Dr.Eric Hintsa from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

Neighborhood Effects on Birthweight: An Exploration of Psychosocial and Behavioral Pathways in Baltimore, 1995-1996  

PubMed Central

Neighborhood characteristics have been proposed to influence birth outcomes through psychosocial and behavioral pathways, yet empirical evidence is lacking. Using data from an urban, low-income sample, this study examined the impact of the neighborhood environment on birthweight and evaluated mediation by psychosocial and behavioral factors. The sample included 726 women who delivered a live birth at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland USA between 1995 and 1996. Census tract data were used to create a principal component index of neighborhood risk based on racial and economic stratification (% Black, % poverty), social disorder (violent crime rate), and physical deterioration (% boarded-up housing) (?=0.82). Information on sociodemographic, psychosocial, and behavioral factors was gathered from a postpartum interview and medical records. Random intercept multilevel models were used to estimate neighborhood effects and assess potential mediation. Controlling for sociodemographic characteristics, a standard deviation increase in neighborhood risk conferred a 76 gram birthweight decrement. This represents an approximate 300 gram difference between the best and worst neighborhoods. Although stress (daily hassles), perceived locus-of-control, and social support were related to birthweight, their adjustment reduced the neighborhood coefficient by only 12%. In contrast, the neighborhood effect was reduced by an additional 30% and was no longer statistically significant after adjustment for the behavioral factors of smoking, drug use, and delayed prenatal care. These findings suggest that neighborhood factors may influence birthweight by shaping maternal behavioral risks. Thus, neighborhood level interventions should be considered to address multiple maternal and infant health risks. Future studies should examine more direct measures of neighborhood stress, such as perceived neighborhood disorder, and evaluate alternative mechanisms by which neighborhood factors influence behavior (e.g., social norms and access to goods and services).

The report has been prepared under a Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior, and the Maryland Geological Survey for collecting information on all nonfuel minerals. The value of nonfuel mineral production in Maryland in 1991 was about $348 million. Production dropped for all the nonfuel minerals produced in the State. Maryland's value of output decreased by only $20 million primarily because of a significant increase in the price of crushed stone.

NAA of an iridium tracer to determine soot exposure of students commuting on Baltimore`s buses  

SciTech Connect

Epidemiologic studies suggest that short-term increases in indices of particulate air pollution are associated with increased mortality and morbidity from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. An important component of urban aerosol, diesel soot, is a known respiratory irritant and contains mutagenic and carcinogenic organic compounds. In the United States, motor vehicles are thought to be the largest single source of atmospheric soot and account for {approximately}36% of the annual anthropogenic emission of toxic polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Much of the motor-vehicle-derived PAH originates from diesel-powered vehicles because their PAH emissions are up to 50-fold greater than those from gasoline engines. In Baltimore, city high school students take public buses to school and, often, must stand at bus stops while many diesel buses pass or stop before their own buses arrive. To estimate student exposures to soot emitted from public diesel buses (MTA) during commutes to city high schools, the Baltimore municipal fuel supply was tagged with an iridium tracer, and exposure was monitored during commutes with personal aerosol monitors as a part of the Baltimore Environmental Justice Project.

Prevalence, Risk Factors and Molecular Epidemiology of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Nasal Colonization among Newly Arrested Males in Baltimore, Maryland  

PubMed Central

Background Outbreaks of MRSA within prison populations seemingly attests to its spread within corrections; however, the extent of MRSA colonization upon arrest is unknown. Methods This study determined the prevalence and risk factors of S. aureus upon arrest. Nasal swabs from 602 newly arrested men were evaluated. Risk factors were assessed through self-report. Molecular characterization of each isolate was completed. Results The prevalence of S. aureus nasal colonization was 40.4% (243/602). MRSA colonization was noted in 15.8% (95/602) and 39.1% (95/243) of the total S. aureus isolates. Twenty-three skin infections were identified. S. aureus infection was noted in 11 (47.8%) with MSSA in 3 (13.1%) and MRSA in 8 (34.8%). In two cases (25%) of MRSA wound infections, the nasal colonizing strain was MSSA. By PFGE, 76 of 95 (80%) nasal isolates were USA300 or related subtypes, 19 of 95 (20%) were non-USA300 strains. PVL was identified in 38 (97.4%) of USA300 strains and 6 (31.6%) isolates of non-USA 300 isolates. Conclusions MRSA colonization is far greater in this sample than in the general public. USA300 subtypes are highly prevalent. History of prior arrest was not associated with an elevated MRSA prevalence. MRSA risk factors were significantly different between those with and without prior arrest history.

The Baltimore and Utrecht models for cluster dissolution  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The analysis of the age distributions of star cluster samples of different galaxies has resulted in two very different empirical models for the dissolution of star clusters: the Baltimore model and the Utrecht model. I describe these two models and their differences. The Baltimore model implies that the dissolution of star clusters is mass independent and that about 90% of the clusters are destroyed each age dex, up to an age of about a Gyr, after which point mass-dependent dissolution from two-body relaxation becomes the dominant mechanism. In the Utrecht model, cluster dissolution occurs in three stages: (i) mass-independent infant mortality due to the expulsion of gas up to about 107 yr; (ii) a phase of slow dynamical evolution with strong evolutionary fading of the clusters lasting up to about a Gyr; and (iii) a phase dominated by mass-dependent dissolution, as predicted by dynamical models. I describe the cluster age distributions for mass-limited and magnitude-limited cluster samples for both models. I refrain from judging the correctness of these models.

Process evaluation of Baltimore Healthy Stores: a pilot health intervention program with supermarkets and corner stores in Baltimore City.  

PubMed

Reduced access to affordable healthy foods is linked to higher rates of chronic diseases in low-income urban settings. The authors conduct a feasibility study of an environmental intervention (Baltimore Healthy Stores) in seven corner stores owned by Korean Americans and two supermarkets in low-income East Baltimore. The goal is to increase the availability of healthy food options and to promote them at the point of purchase. The process evaluation is conducted largely by external evaluators. Participating stores stock promoted foods, and print materials are displayed with moderate to high fidelity. Interactive consumer taste tests are implemented with high reach and dose. Materials developed specifically for Korean American corner store owners are implemented with moderate to high fidelity and dose. Results indicate that small food store-based intervention programs are feasible to implement and are a viable means of increasing healthy food availability and a good location for point-of-purchase promotions in low-income urban settings.

The Baltimore Museum of Art presents this online exhibition, which amounts to a handy study guide on printmaking, and covers both common topics treated in prints, and the technology of printmaking. The exhibit compares the work of two pairs of printmakers, Albrecht Durer and Odilon Redon, and William Hogarth and Andrew Raftery. The two pairs are separated by wide spans of time and distance - Durer worked in Germany in the 15th century, while Redon worked in 19th century France. William Hogarth is best known for his satirical depictions of urban life in England in the 18th century, while Andrew Raftery portrays 20th and 21st century American life. Redon and Durer's visions of apocalypse are compared here, as are Hogarth's series A Harlot's Progress, 1732, and Raftery's Open House, Five Engraved Scenes, 2008. Two additional sections explore contemporary printmaking, adding the work of six more artists to Raftery's and explaining printmaking techniques.

First Results From The Washington DC Metropolitan Area Lightning Mapping Demonstration Project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

An experimental portable lightning mapping array (LMA) operating in the upper VHF TV band (Channels 7-13; 174-216 MHz) was deployed in the Washington DC Metropolitan area during the summer 2006 to locate and monitor the overall lightning activity. The LMA network provides total lightning data to support lightning research as well as proxy data to benefit the development of applications for planned observing systems such as the GOES-R Geostationary Lightning Mapper. The portable LMA hardware is a compactly-housed, easily deployed version of the LMA stations installed North Alabama, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, which operate in the lower VHF TV band (Channels 2-6, 54-88 MHz). Real-time LMA data products are provided to the National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office (WFO) in Sterling, VA to aid in their forecast and warning operations. Forecasters at WFO Sterling have already found the lightning data from the Washington DC demonstration network to be very useful in assessing the development of storm systems. On July 4, 2006, data from the LMA aided forecasters as they monitored an area of convection that later developed into a line of severe storms that moved southward through the Washington DC metropolitan area across the Washington Mall. Additional applications of lightning mapping data in the Baltimore-Washington DC urban environment will be discussed.

Modelling water exchange between Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay using artificial tracers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The contaminants discharged from adjacent industries and densely populated areas have a great threat to the water quality and ecosystem in Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay. Variety of physical processes complicate quantifying the contribution of dominant sources and processes that lead to the environmental problem in Baltimore Harbor. In order to understand the contaminants and water exchange between Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay, the conservative artificial tracers are used to investigate the transport processes through a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model (CH3D), in which the three-layered circulation pattern in Baltimore Harbor are well reproduced. Several numerical experiments are performed to investigate the variability of the water exchange in response to the external forcing and to quantify the fate and transport timescales of those biogeochemical substances that released from different source regions. The results indicate seasonal variations of the water exchange are mainly controlled by Susquehanna River discharge. It takes less time in the flooding season (about 35 days) than in the drought season (about 115 days) for the dissolved substance to be transported from Susquehanna River into the Baltimore Harbor. In contrast, it takes more time in the flooding season (about 65 days) than in the drought season (about 45 days) for the dissolved substance to be transported from the lower Chesapeake Bay into the Baltimore Harbor (reference to the releasing spot). The residence time of the water in Baltimore Harbor are investigated under different hydrological conditions. It shows high correlation with the flow structure in the Harbor. The typical synoptic events are also examined in order to estimate the direct response timescales of the water exchange processes between the Harbor and the mainstem of the Bay. The results, from the environmental perspective, provide useful information for understanding the transport processes of the dissolved biogeochemical substances between Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay.

Risk Factors Associated with Childhood Strabismus: The Multi-Ethnic Pediatric Eye Disease and Baltimore Pediatric Eye Disease Studies  

PubMed Central

Objective To investigate risk factors associated with esotropia or exotropia in infants and young children. Design Population-based cross-sectional prevalence study. Participants Population-based samples of 9970 children ages 6 to 72 months from California and Maryland. Methods Participants were preschool African-American, Hispanic, and non-Hispanic white children participating in the Multiethnic Pediatric Eye Disease Study and the Baltimore Eye Disease Study. Data were obtained by parental interview and ocular examination. Odd ratios and 95% confidence intervals were calculated to evaluate the association of demographic, behavioral, and clinical risk factors with esotropia and exotropia. Main Outcome Measures Odds ratios (ORs) for various risk factors associated with esotropia or exotropia diagnosis based on cover testing. Results In multivariate logistic regression analysis, esotropia was independently associated with prematurity, maternal smoking during pregnancy, older preschool age (48–72 months), anisometropia, and hyperopia. There was a severity-dependent association of hyperopia with the prevalence of esotropia, with ORs increasing from 6.4 for 2.00 Diopters (D) to <3.00 D of hyperopia, to 122.0 for ? 5.00 D. Exotropia was associated with prematurity, maternal smoking during pregnancy, family history of strabismus, female sex, astigmatism (OR 2.5 for 1.50 to <2.50 D, and 5.9 for ? 2.5 D of astigmatism), and aniso-astigmatism in the J0 component (OR ? 2 for J0 aniso-astigmatism ? 0.25 D). Conclusions Prematurity and maternal smoking during pregnancy are associated with a higher risk of having esotropia and exotropia. Refractive error is associated in a severity-dependent manner to the prevalence of esotropia and exotropia. Because refractive error is correctable, these risk associations should be considered when developing guidelines for the screening and management of refractive error in infants and young children children.

Prevalence of Decreased Visual Acuity among Preschool Aged Children in an American Urban Population: The Baltimore Pediatric Eye Disease Study, Methods and Results  

PubMed Central

Objective To determine the age- and ethnicity-specific prevalence of decreased visual acuity (VA) in White and African-American preschool aged children. Design Cross-sectional study. Participants The Baltimore Pediatric Eye Disease Study is a population-based evaluation of the prevalence of ocular disorders in children aged 6 through 71 months in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Among 4,132 children identified, 3,990 eligible children (97%) were enrolled and 2,546 children (62%) were examined. This report focuses on 1,714 of 2,546 examined children (67%) who were aged 30 through 71 months. Methods Field staff identified 63,737 occupied dwelling units in 54 census tracts. Parents or guardians of eligible participants underwent an in-home interview and eligible children underwent a comprehensive eye examination including optotype VA in children aged 30 months and older with protocol-specified retesting of children with VA worse than an age-appropriate standard. Main Outcome Measures The proportion of children aged 30 through 71 months testable for VA and the proportion with decreased VA as defined by preset criteria. Results VA was testable in 1,504 of 1,714 children (87.7%) 30 through 71 months of age. It was decreased at the initial test (wearing glasses if brought to the clinic) in both eyes of 7 of 577 White children (1.21%, 95% Confidence Interval [CI] = 0.49, 2.50) and 13 of 725 African-American children (1.79%, 95% CI = 0.95, 3.08), a difference that is not statistically significant. Decreased VA in both eyes after retesting was found in 3 of 598 White children (0.50%, 95% CI = 0.10, 1.48) and 8 of 757 African-American children (1.06%, 95% CI = 0.45, 2.10), also not statistically significantly different. Uncorrected ametropia explained the decreased VA on initial testing in ten of the twenty children. Conclusions Decreased VA in both eyes of children 30 through 71 months of age at presentation in urban Baltimore was 1.2% among White children and 1.8% among African-American children. After re-testing within 60 days of the initial exam and with children wearing best refractive correction, the rate of decreased VA in both eyes was 0.5% among Whites and 1.1% among African-Americans.

A Regional Modeling Study of the Influence of Urban Land Cover Change on the Lower Atmosphere in Baltimore-Washington DC  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The land-use and land cover (LULC) history of the Baltimore-Washington region has been intensively studied through a variety of environmental research collaborations and regional partnerships. One such partnership, the Baltimore-Washington Regional Collaboratory, involved multiple Federal and local agencies cooperating on a 200-year urban growth study in the Chesapeake region. Information from this study on pre-1900 and current LULC conditions for the Baltimore-Washington DC area was integrated with data from other sources to construct different lower boundary conditions for a series of simulations using the Colorado State University (CSU) Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS). We use the RAMS simulations to diagnose the extent and nature of the effect of urban anomalies in surface heat, moisture, and momentum on mid-summer local and regional climate. The experimental design adopted for this study takes advantage of the grid-nesting capability of RAMS. A fine grid with 1km horizontal resolution was nested into a coarser 5 km grid, which extends from southern Pennsylvania, Maryland, to parts of Virginia, and West Virginia. Two sets of month-long simulations for July 2000 were conducted with RAMS running in parallel on a 26-processor cluster of computers at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA), CSU. In the first set of simulations, we initially used satellite-derived current land cover data as the lower boundary condition in a 31-day RAMS run. We then replaced this data with the pre-1900 land cover data for the same region and ran a similar RAMS simulation. Identical observed meteorology was retained for the lateral boundary conditions in both cases. The model results for the initial run were validated with July 2000 surface climate data and flux measurements of sensible and latent heat from sites located within the fine grid model domain. Additional simulations were conducted to compare RAMS model performance using prescribed land surface conditions with results from a physically based scheme for urban energy budget coupled to RAMS. The urban surface scheme used here is the Town Energy Budget (TEB) model recently developed at the Center for Meteorological Research (CNRM), France. The TEB model allows for a refinement of model computed radiative budgets, heat and momentum based on a generalization of the classic canyon approach. Results from both sets of simulations, and the implications, for surface climate, of the driving human-induced land cover transformations are discussed.

SciTech Connect

Data obtained on persons who purchased solar water heaters with HUD grants from 1977 to 1979 in the states of Florida, Delaware and Maryland are compiled. A total of more than 2600 consumers are profiled. The following variables are included in the consumer profile: type of present hot water system, site location by county, family composition and type of installation. This study represents the largest marketing profile of solar hot water system purchasers to date. It has significance both to private industry and the government for it details what type of person participated in the HUD grant program. It is found that the largest number of solar installations cluster around large metropolitan areas in neighborhoods that are predominantly white, upper-class, and less than five persons in the household.

Cation Chemistry in Baltimore Streams: Another Syndrome Symptom?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Urban streams are degraded due to a variety of physical and chemical factors including impervious surfaces, sewer cross-connections, and multiple chemical contaminants. There is particular interest in the loading of anionic nutrients and heavy metals into urban streams, especially those draining to nutrient sensitive receiving waters. However, there has been less characterization of cation chemistry in urban streams. We examined metal concentrations in archived water samples as part of the stream monitoring program of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES), an urban component of the U.S. National Science Foundation Long Term Ecological Research network. Preliminary analysis suggests sewer cross-connections (storm and sanitary) influence metal concentrations (e.g. Si, Ca, Mg). For example, while silica content is elevated in water draining BES agricultural watersheds, it is also elevated in watersheds with extensive impervious surface coverage, areas with the least water-rock interaction. These results raise questions about the effects of urbanization on chemical weathering, the stoichiometry of urban storm and sewer waters, and the potential for human inputs to function as hydrologic tracers in urban watersheds.

Flavonoid intakes in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging  

PubMed Central

Major sources of flavonoids were identified, and mean intakes over several decades were reported, among 1638 participants (mean age 62.1 +/? 16.0 y), of the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA). Dietary data were collected using 7-day diet records during three time periods (1980s, 1990s and 2000-present), and the USDA flavonoid, proanthocyanidin and isoflavone databases were used to estimate dietary flavonoid intakes. Dietary intake data were divided according to decade of visit. Foods were matched with appropriate foods in the USDA databases. Mixed dishes were disaggregated to individual foods and a similar procedure was followed. Total flavonoids and five sub-classes of flavonoids, including flavonols, flavones, flavanones, flavan-3-ols and anthocyanidins, were computed by summing appropriate compounds. The median intakes of flavonoids and the contributions of various foods to intakes were calculated by decade. Age and sex adjusted mean (SE) daily intakes of flavonoids increased from 250 (7.4) in the 1980s to 280 (9.9) mg in the 2000s. Top contributors of flavonoids were tea, apple/pear (and juices), citrus fruits (and juices), peaches, plums, grapes, nectarines (and juices) and chocolate. The data show an increase in the consumption of flavonoids over the three decades, which appears to be related to intake of fruit.

Satellite exchange in the Baltimore Needle Exchange Program.  

PubMed Central

OBJECTIVE: Our first objective was to develop an index of satellite exchange and then determine whether satellite exchangers (SEs) differed demographically or behaviorally from other injecting drug users (IDUs). Our second objective was to determine the degree that SEs contributed to needle exchange program (NEP) effectiveness. METHODS: We collected data from approximately 5000 Baltimore Needle Exchange Program (BNEP) participants on the number of syringes acquired and returned over the two-year period February 1995 to February 1997. We then conducted one-way ANOVAs and logistic regressions to determine if SEs were different from other IDUs. RESULTS: We classified 9.35% of the IDUs and SEs and showed that SEs reported levels of drug use and risk behavior similar to other BNEP participants. Although SEs represented less than 10% of all BNEP clients, they accounted for more than 64% of all needles distributed by the BNEP. We showed that SEs accessed more wide-ranging drug use networks than non-SE IDUs and thus can act as potential bridges for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention materials and messages to larger numbers of drug injectors. CONCLUSIONS: SEs can be expressly targeted with specific prevention messages and encouraged to be "ambassadors" for HIV prevention messages. Efforts to curtail the activities of SEs may detract from the effectiveness of NEPs.

Chronic exposure of Leptocheirus plumulosus to Baltimore Harbor sediment: bioenergetic and population-level effects.  

PubMed

We investigated the long-term effects of contaminants in sediment from Baltimore Harbor, MD, USA, on a burrowing amphipod (Leptocheirus plumulosus) via a full life-cycle laboratory exposure. Contaminants in the Baltimore Harbor sediment included PAHs (10,800 ng/g), PCBs (152 ng/g), and heavy metals (including As, Cd, Cu, Pb, Hg, Ni, and Zn). Exposures were initiated with neonate amphipods, placed in microcosms containing either contaminated or reference sediment, and were maintained for 42 days, allowing ample time for the initial cohort to mature and reproduce. At the end of the exposure period, the populations of amphipods were surveyed to ascertain the number and size of amphipods in each size class (neonate, juvenile, and adult), and bioenergetic measurements were performed on adults, including metabolic rate, lipid content, and fecundity. Contaminated sediment from Baltimore Harbor caused lower growth and reproductive rates; in Baltimore Harbor sediment, the average dry weight of amphipod offspring in each size class was significantly lower and there were less than one-third as many individuals in each size class, compared to reference sediment. By the end of the exposure, the total amphipod biomass in Baltimore Harbor sediment was less than one quarter of that in reference sediment. On average, gravid females in reference sediment produced at least twice as many viable offspring as those in contaminated sediment. Adult male amphipods in Baltimore Harbor sediment possessed significantly lower lipid concentrations. Lipid content in neonates also appeared to be negatively affected by parental exposure to contaminants. Metabolic rate was elevated in adult amphipods exposed to Baltimore Harbor sediment. Overall, the results suggest that contaminated sediment conditions in the urban estuary may chronically affect L. plumulosus by diverting energy from production to maintenance pathways, resulting in slower growth and reduced fecundity, and ultimately leading to retarded population growth rates. The results of this study reinforce the need for long-term toxicological exposures to reveal chronic effects. PMID:16730790

Modeled cost-effectiveness of the Experience Corps Baltimore based on a pilot randomized trial.  

PubMed

The Experience Corps program was designed to harness the social capital of an aging society to improve outcomes for public elementary schools. The objectives of this article are (1) to model the cost-effectiveness of the Experience Corps Baltimore using data from a pilot randomized trial, including costs, older adults' health status, and quality of life and cost data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and (2) to describe the relationship between children experiencing increased expected lifetime earnings through improved educational attainment resulting from exposure to the Experience Corps Baltimore volunteers and the program's costs and cost-effectiveness. On average, each quality adjusted life year (QALY) gained by older adults in Experience Corps Baltimore costs $205,000. The lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for the cost-effectiveness is $65,000/QALY. The upper bound is undefined as 15% of the simulations indicated no QALY improvements. If 0.3% of students exposed to the Experience Corps Baltimore changed from not graduating to graduating, the increased lifetime earnings would make the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio $49,000/QALY. If an additional 0.1% changed to graduating from high school, the program would be cost-saving. Using conservative modeling assumptions and excluding benefits to teachers, principals, and the surrounding community, the Experience Corps Baltimore appears expensive for the older adults' health improvements, but requires only small long-term benefits to the target children to make the program cost-effective or cost-saving.

Met Archives: The Metropolitan Opera  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

It is regrettably decades too late to hear Ezio Pinza sing "Deh, vieni alla finestra" live from the Metropolitan Opera or Caruso offer his splendid version of "Questa o quello" from Verdi's Rigoletto, but these lovely recordings are alive again on the Met's very enchanting Met Archives website. First-time visitors may wish to read over the introductory essay on the history of the Met, and then proceed to the interactive timeline, "Sights & Sounds of Met History". As mentioned, there are many wonderful audio excerpts available within the "Sounds of the Met"section, and the Met Opera Database allows visitors to search for information on various productions throughout the Met's past. Here you can learn a great deal, including that La Boheme has been performed a total of 1178 times at the Met, while Die Lustigen Weiber Von Windsor by Nicolai-Mosenthal has been performed only once there. Additionally, users can peruse the "Stories of the Operas" area to read brief summaries of such works as Cosi fan tutte, Lulu, and Gotterdammerung.

Firms to drill wildcats in Virginia, Maryland  

SciTech Connect

The Taylorsville basin southeast of Washington, D.C., will host more drilling this year. Two companies plan to drill two 10,500 ft wildcats along the Potomac River, one in Maryland and one in Virginia. The remote wildcats are an outgrowth of an aggressive leasing and core hold drilling program carried out in 1985 and 1986 near the eastern margin of the basin. The Taylorsville basin is a buried Triassic basin. Part of the basin is exposed in Hanover and Caroline counties, Va., southwest of where the new wildcats will be drilled. Several old wells penetrated Triassic in the Maryland area where it is overlain by 1,500 ft and more of Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Quarternary sediments.

The Baltimore Youth Ammunition Initiative: A Model Application of Local Public Health Authority in Preventing Gun Violence  

PubMed Central

In 2002, the Baltimore City Health Department, in collaboration with the Baltimore Police Department and the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, launched the Youth Ammunition Initiative. The initiative addressed Baltimore’s problem of youth gun violence by targeting illegal firearm ammunition sales to the city’s young people. The initiative included undercover “sting” investigations of local businesses and issuance of health department violation and abatement notices. Intermediate results included the passage of 2 Baltimore city council ordinances regulating ammunition sales and reducing the number of outlets eligible to sell ammunition. Although it is too early to assess effects on violent crime, the intervention could theoretically reduce youth violence by interrupting one source of ammunition to youths. More important, the initiative can serve as a policy model for health commissioners seeking to become more active in gun violence prevention efforts.

Factors that influence surface PM2.5 values inferred from satellite observations: perspective gained for the Baltimore-Washington Area during DISCOVER-AQ  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

During the NASA DISCOVER-AQ campaign over the Washington D.C., - Baltimore, MD, metropolitan region in July 2011, the NASA P-3B aircraft performed extensive profiling of aerosol optical, chemical, and microphysical properties. These in-situ profiles were coincident with ground based remote sensing (AERONET) and in-situ (PM2.5) measurements. Here, we use this data set to study the correlation between the PM2.5 observations at the surface and the column integrated measurements. Aerosol optical depth (AOD) calculated with the extinction (532 nm) measured during the in-situ profiles was found to be strongly correlated with the volume of aerosols present in the boundary layer (BL). Despite the strong correlation, some variability remains, and we find that the presence of aerosol layers above the BL (in the buffer layer - BuL) introduces a significant uncertainties in PM2.5 estimates based on column-integrated measurements. This motivates the use of active remote sensing techniques to dramatically improve air quality retrievals. Since more than a quarter of the AOD values observed during DISCOVER-AQ are dominated by aerosol water uptake, the f(RH)amb (obtained from two nephelometers at different relative humidities - RHs) is used to study the impact of the aerosol hygroscopicity. The results indicate that PM2.5 can be predicted within a factor of 1.6 even when the vertical variability of the f(RH)amb is assumed to be negligible.

The inmate population in the Maryland prison system has increased dramatically over the past 10 years due to changes in sentencing by the courts. At the same time, costs of inmate health care have increased markedly following court cases mandating adequate care, an amelioration of prior inadequate standards of care. The unique demographic and disease risk characteristics of inmates predispose them to a distinct set of health problems. The state is legally obligated to provide health care to individuals sentenced to confinement in state prisons. It is often the first care these individuals have received in many years. PMID:2927268

The Baltimore Youth Ammunition Initiative: a model application of local public health authority in preventing gun violence.  

PubMed

In 2002, the Baltimore City Health Department, in collaboration with the Baltimore Police Department and the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, launched the Youth Ammunition Initiative. The initiative addressed Baltimore's problem of youth gun violence by targeting illegal firearm ammunition sales to the city's young people. The initiative included undercover "sting" investigations of local businesses and issuance of health department violation and abatement notices. Intermediate results included the passage of 2 Baltimore city council ordinances regulating ammunition sales and reducing the number of outlets eligible to sell ammunition. Although it is too early to assess effects on violent crime, the intervention could theoretically reduce youth violence by interrupting one source of ammunition to youths. More important, the initiative can serve as a policy model for health commissioners seeking to become more active in gun violence prevention efforts. PMID:15855448

Race and restless legs syndrome symptoms in an adult community sample in east Baltimore  

Microsoft Academic Search

Background & purposeDue to the relative absence of African–Americans seeking treatment for restless legs syndrome (RLS) in specialty clinics, a lower prevalence of RLS among African–Americans than Caucasians has been suggested. We compared the prevalence of RLS in African–Americans and Caucasians in a biracial community sample as part of Wave IV of the Baltimore Health and Mental Health Study.

Characteristics of Prepared Food Sources in Low-Income Neighborhoods of Baltimore City  

Microsoft Academic Search

The food environment is associated with obesity risk and diet-related chronic diseases. Despite extensive research conducted on retail food stores, little is known about prepared food sources (PFSs). We conducted an observational assessment of all PFSs (N = 92) in low-income neighborhoods in Baltimore. The most common PFSs were carry-outs, which had the lowest availability of healthy food choices. Only

The 1998 Baltimore Particulate Matter Epidemiology-Exposure Study: part 1. Comparison of ambient, residential outdoor, indoor and apartment particulate matter monitoring.  

PubMed

A combined epidemiological exposure panel study was conducted during the summer of 1998 in Baltimore, Maryland. The objectives of the exposure analysis component of the 28-day study were to investigate the statistical relationships between particulate matter (PM) and related co-pollutants from numerous spatial boundaries associated with an elderly population, provide daily mass concentrations needed for the epidemiological assessment, and perform an extensive personal exposure assessment. Repeated 24-h integrated PM2.5 (n=394) and PM10 (n=170) data collections corresponding to stationary residential central indoor, individual apartment, residential outdoor and ambient monitoring were obtained using the same sampling methodology. An additional 325 PM2.5 personal air samples were collected from a pool of 21 elderly (65+ years of age) subjects. These subjects were residents of the 18-story retirement facility where residential monitoring was conducted. Mean daily central indoor and residential apartment concentrations were approximately 10 microg/m3. Outdoor and ambient PM2.5 concentrations averaged 22 microg/m3 with a daily range of 6.7-59.3 microg/m3. The slope of the central indoor/outdoor PM2.5 mass relationship was 0.38. The average daily ratio of PM2.5/PM10 mass concentrations across the measurement sites ranged from 0.73 to 0.92. Both the central indoor and mean apartment PM2.5 mass concentrations were highly correlated with the outdoor variables (r>0.94). The lack of traditionally recognized indoor sources of PM present within the facility might have accounted for the high degree of correlation observed between the variables. Results associated with the personal monitoring effort are discussed in depth in Part 2 of this article. PMID:11140436

Unity in Diversity: Results of a randomized clinical culturally tailored pilot HIV prevention intervention trial for African American men who have sex with men; Baltimore, Maryland  

PubMed Central

Unity in Diversity was a randomized controlled trial of a culturally tailored HIV prevention intervention for African American men who have sex with men (AA MSM). The intervention condition was six group-based sessions and one individual session. The control condition was a single-session HIV prevention review. Participants were aged 18 years or older, identified as African American/black race, reported having at least two sex partners in the prior 90 days (at least one of whom must be a male partner), unprotected anal sex with male partner in the prior 90 days and willing to test for HIV. Retention exceeded 95% at 3 month follow-up. Results of multivariate logistic regression analysis adjusting for baseline risk, HIV status and health insurance indicate intervention efficacy in decreasing the number of male sex partners and marginal effects on condom use with male partners and HIV negative/unknown partners. Specifically, intervention condition was associated with increased odds of zero male sex partners (AOR=3.03, 95%CI=1.26–7.28), condom use with male partners (AOR=2.64, 95%CI=0.95–7.36) and HIV negative/unknown status partners (AOR=3.19, 95%CI=0.98–10.38) at follow-up. These results contribute to the limited number of culturally appropriate models of HIV prevention intervention that are urgently needed for African American men who have sex with men to address their persistently high rates of HIV.

The Geographic Scale of Metropolitan Racial Segregation  

PubMed Central

This article addresses an aspect of racial residential segregation that has been largely ignored in prior work: the issue of geographic scale. In some metropolitan areas, racial groups are segregated over large regions, with predominately white regions, predominately black regions, and so on, whereas in other areas, the separation of racial groups occurs over much shorter distances. Here we develop an approach—featuring the segregation profile and the corresponding macro/micro segregation ratio—that offers a scale-sensitive alternative to standard methodological practice for describing segregation. Using this approach, we measure and describe the geographic scale of racial segregation in the 40 largest U.S. metropolitan areas in 2000. We find considerable heterogeneity in the geographic scale of segregation patterns across both metropolitan areas and racial groups, a heterogeneity that is not evident using conventional “aspatial” segregation measures. Moreover, because the geographic scale of segregation is only modestly correlated with the level of segregation in our sample, we argue that geographic scale represents a distinct dimension of residential segregation. We conclude with a brief discussion of the implications of our findings for investigating the patterns, causes, and consequences of residential segregation at different geographic scales.

Influences on Tobacco Use Among Urban Hispanic Young Adults in Baltimore: Findings From a Qualitative Study  

PubMed Central

Background Among Hispanics, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death for men and the second leading cause of cancer death for women in the United States. Despite recent growth in Baltimore City’s Hispanic population, few data exist on tobacco use behaviors in this group. Objectives The present research sought to explore the social and environmental influences and norms that encourage or discourage tobacco use among Hispanic young adults in Baltimore. Methods In collaboration with several community stakeholders, we conducted focus groups with Hispanic young adults 18 to 24 years old. Participants were recruited from a community-based service organization and invited to take part in one of four focus groups segregated by gender. Results A total of 13 young men and 11 young women participated. Data from these focus groups indicate that cultural identity and gender norms leverage substantial influence in young adults’ decision about whether, where, and with whom to smoke. The data also suggest multiple social and familial influences on their smoking and nonsmoking behaviors. Participants identified smoking practices and clear brand preferences that they feel distinguish Hispanics from other racial and ethnic groups. Despite acknowledging the high price of cigarettes, cost was not mentioned as a factor influential in their smoking decisions. Conclusion These results provide essential guidance for the development of appropriate tobacco prevention and cessation intervention strategies and policy recommendations to eliminate tobacco use among Hispanic young adults in Baltimore.

Biological aging and social characteristics: gerontology, the Baltimore city hospitals, and the national institutes of health.  

PubMed

The intramural gerontological research program in the National Institutes of Health underwent a substantial growth after its creation within the precincts of the Baltimore City Hospitals in 1940. This paper analyzes its development and the associated problems of its early years. Gerontologists aimed at improving the social and economic life of the elderly through scientific research. With this aim in mind, they conducted various investigations using the indigent aged patients of the Baltimore City Hospitals. Yet the scientists of aging, who hoped to eliminate negative social factors that might bias their research and heighten the confusion between pathology and aging per se, eventually stopped using these patients in the hospital as human subjects. Instead they sought educated affluent subjects in order to eliminate the impact of poverty. By doing so, however, they introduced a new source of social bias to their work, especially within the novel project begun in 1958, the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging. This article thus examines the context of the development of gerontologists' research by analyzing their agenda, institutional environment, and research subjects in the 1940s and the 1950s.

Hawk migration over White Marsh, Maryland  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The average number of hawks observed per hour in autumn migration between 1951-1954 and 1958-1961 at White Marsh, Maryland, was compared. The counts indicated that the status of the ten species observed may be divided into three categories: (1) relatively stable species (red-tailed hawk), (2) declining species (sparrow hawk, red-shouldered hawk, osprey, marsh hawk, and broad-winged hawk), and (3) rapidly declining species (peregrine falcon, Cooper?s hawk, bald eagle, and sharp-shinned hawk). The findings from this study are in agreement with the available literature and the status of the populations appears to be related to the food habits of the species.

Metropolitan aeromedical service: state of the art.  

PubMed

This article summarizes the salient features of seven federally funded experimental helicopter aeromedical ambulance services. The lessons applicable to metropolitan aeromedical service are presented. Of over 30 currently operational helicopter ambulance services, eleven are discussed in detail because of a unique feature which characterizes each. Air rescue activity during the Los Angeles earthquake of February 1971, and hurricane Agnes in Pennsylvania in June 1972, are reported and assessed. The elements of a successful aeromedical service are: multi-mission approach; a small number of hospitals selected because of specialized facilities; adequate airborne equipment; aeromedical crewmen; communications with the ground; a reasonable cost; and operational hours coinciding with peak traffic.

Maryland's program for buying recycled paper (innovations)  

SciTech Connect

Maryland was the first state to mandate large purchases of recycled paper. In 1977, the legislature passed House Bill 153 which requires the State to increase its purchase of recycled paper (paper containing 80 percent post-consumer waste) to five percent of the total paper purchases by 1978, 25 percent by 1981, and 40 percent by 1985. Since the passage of the law, the state has purchased 272,000 reams of recycled bond paper, 40,000 corrugated boxes, and 25,000 cases of recycled paper towels. State agencies have also purchased an additional 438,616 dollars of recycled towels, napkins, and toilet tissue. These purchases, totaling over 1.2 million dollars, have saved approximately 81 billion Btu's or enough home heating oil for 643 homes for a year. Over 1,700 tons of solid waste have been withheld from the Nation's solid waste stream. The recycled paper has generally been less expensive than virgin paper. All of these benefits have been achieved without loss of quality. Program implementation and problems are discussed.

MMTF: THE MARYLAND-MAGELLAN TUNABLE FILTER  

SciTech Connect

This paper describes the Maryland-Magellan Tunable Filter (MMTF) on the Magellan-Baade 6.5 m telescope. MMTF is based on a 150 mm clear aperture Fabry-Perot (FP) etalon that operates in low orders and provides transmission bandpass and central wavelength adjustable from {approx}5 A to {approx}15 A and from {approx}5000 A to over {approx}9200 A, respectively. It is installed in the Inamori Magellan Areal Camera and Spectrograph and delivers an image quality of {approx}0.''5 over a field of view of 27' in diameter (monochromatic over {approx}10'). This versatile and easy-to-operate instrument has been used over the past three years for a wide variety of projects. This paper first reviews the basic principles of FP tunable filters, and then provides a detailed description of the hardware and software associated with MMTF and the techniques developed to observe with this instrument and reduce the data. The main lessons learned in the course of the commissioning and implementation of MMTF are highlighted next, before concluding with a brief outlook on the future of MMTF and of similar facilities which are soon coming on line.

Management of multihazards risk for metropolitan regions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This proposal outlines an action plan for risk management in the Delaware Valley Metropolitan Region. This plan is consistent with the goals for strengthening homeland security announced by President Bush, and is designed to complement efforts currently under development by Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Department of Health. This plan proposes the formation of a Delaware Valley Risk Management Consortium, representing the critical disciplines and organizations related to risk assessment and management. This group would have membership from academic institutions, government agencies, industry, and nonprofit organizations. This Consortium would develop a systemic scope of work with the appropriate recommendations for technology acquisition, development and integration with risk management policies and procedures. This scope of work would include the development of two related information systems for the Delaware Valley Region. The first would be a comprehensive 'health monitoring' system to assess the continuity of operations, which would use integrated remote sensing and imaging, information gathering, communication, computation, and, information processing and management over wide-area networks covering the entire metropolitan area. The second would use real-time information from the health monitoring system to support interactive communication, search and information exchange needed to coordinate action among the relevant agencies to mitigate risk, respond to hazards and manage its resources efficiently and effectively.
