Feldspar diagenesis in the Frio Formation, Brazoria County, Texas Gulf Coast  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tremendous quantities of detrital feldspar have been dissolved or albitized below about 14,000 ft (4,267 m) in the Frio Formation (Oligocene), Chocolate Bayou Field, Brazoria County, Texas. Some sandstones no longer contain any unmodified detrital feldspar grains. Material transfer involved in these reactions is immense, affecting at least 15% of the rock volume. Thus, albitization has important implications for several other diagenetic processes that involve feldspars or their components. These processes include formation of secondary porosity, precipitation of quartz and carbonate cements, and the evolution of Na-Ca-Cl formation water.

Elements of high constructive deltaic sedimentation, lower Frio Formation, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

The lower Frio Formation in eastern Brazoria County, upper Texas Gulf Coast, was deposited in a high constructive deltaic environment in the Houston delta system. Constructive elements of the stacked, elongate to lobate deltas that were intersected in core are storm induced delta front splays, delta front slump deposits, and distributary mouth bar, distributary channel and delta plain assemblages. Reworked and winnowed abandonment facies that are volumetrically insignificant relative to constructive elements are subdivided into a crossbedded shoreface-foreshore subfacies and a fine grained cyclic sequence of storm deposits on the lower shoreface that represent a distal abandonment subfacies. Micropaleontological evidence indicates that deposition of constructive and abandonment facies took place in water depths of less than 120 feet.

History of burial diagenesis determined from isotopic geochemistry, Frio Formation, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

Progressive burial diagenesis of the Oligocene Frio Formation in Brazoria County, Texas, has resulted in extensive reaction between pore fluids and sediment in a major shift toward water/rock equilibrium. Carbon and oxygen isotopic data, combined with fluid isotopic data from the literature, indicate that quartz cement formed at 75 to 80/sup 0/C and kaolinite at approximately 100/sup 0/C. The zone of most rapid albitization is near 150/sup 0/C. Authigenic carbonates formed over a wide range of temperatures, and those within the peak zone of hydrocarbon generation are depleted in /sup 13/C. At depths shallower than approximately 2600 m, quartz and carbonate cementation in primary intergranular pore spaces (passive diagenesis) dominated. Below 2600 m, within the geopressured zone, reaction of detrital components (active diagenesis) is the major process. Organic maturation, albitization, and the transition of smectite to illite are the processes that contribute most of the components required for precipitation of cements. Quartz cementation occurred quite early in the burial history of the Frio (beginning at approximately 1500 m of burial), when the rates of fluid expulsion were at a maximum and when little of the Frio sandstone section had reached the zone of albitization.

Scanning electron microscope examination of shale in core from the Frio Formation, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

Scanning electron microscope (SEM) examination of additional core from shallower geopressured and nongeopressured Frio Formation wells in Brazoria County shows similar fracture patterns and clay textures to those reported earlier in the Skrabanek 1 well. The additional wells examined by SEM are 1-B Minnie Mettler, 2847 to 3254 m; Pleasant Bayou 1, 3532 to 4750 m; and Phillips Petroleum JJ 1, 4919 to 5128 m. We noted that shales occurring from 2744 to 5488 in have similar grain orientation and fracture patterns. Pleasant Bayou 1 is strikingly similar to Skrabanek 1, having coarse flakes and grains of quartz and feldspar disbursed throughout. Phillips Petroleum JJ 1 is more uniform in appearance, lacking distinct clay flakes and scattered grains. 1-B Minnie Mettler is similar in appearance to Phillips Petroleum JJ 1, having a uniform distribution of components; however, the clay flakes are less densely packed. Fractures are present in all three wells. The abundance of both horizontal and vertical fractures at varying depths could act as avenues of fluid flow within geopressured shales.

Predicting diagenetic history and reservoir quality in the Frio Formation of Brazoria County, Texas and Pleasant Bayou test wells  

SciTech Connect

Good-quality geothermal reservoirs displaying secondary porosity exist on the upper Texas coast (Brazoria County), site of the Pleasant Bayou No. 1 and No. 2 wells, and are attributed to a moderately stable mineral assemblage, normal geothermal gradients, and low in situ pH. Major authigenic minerals are calcite, quartz, and kaolinite. Detrital feldspar has been extensively albitized at depth. Major diagenetic events overlapped, occurring in the general order-precipitation of calcite, formation of quartz overgrowths, albitization, leaching of calcite to form secondary porosity, and precipitation of kaolinite. Seventeen Brazoria County water analyses including two from the Pleasant Bayou No. 2 well were thermodynamically tested. Predictions based on equilibrium thermodynamics add new insight on mineral stabilities and are consistent with the paragenetic sequence developed from petrographic data. Early precipitation of calcite at shallow depths of burial is predicted. Low temperture and low in situ pH explain the general absence of chlorite. The use of solution-mineral equilibria as a predictor of reservoir quality is inconclusive, but well-defined clustering of waters indicates that identification of regional trends will probably be possible. Shallow waters may be the key to predicting reservoir quality at depth.

Clay mineralogy and depositional history of the Frio Formation in two geopressured wells, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

Twenty-three shale samples ranging in depth from 5194 ft to 13,246 ft from Gulf Oil Corporation No. 2 Texas State Lease 53034 well and 33 shale samples ranging in depth from 2185 ft to 15,592 ft from General Crude Oil Company/Department of Energy No. 1 Pleasant Bayou well were examined by x-ray techniques to determine the mineralogy of the geopressured zone in the Brazoria Fairway. Both wells have similar weight-percent trends with depth for a portion of the mineralogy. Calcite decreases, and plagioclase, quartz and total clay increase slightly. Within the clays, illite in mixed-layer illite/smectite (I/S) increases and smectite in mixed-layer I/S decreases. Four minerals have distinctly different trends with depth for each well. In the No. 2 Texas State Lease 53034 well, potassium feldspar and mixed-layer I/S decrease, kaolinite increases, and discrete illite is constant. In the No. 1 Pleasant Bayou well, potassium feldspar and kaolinite are constant, mixed-layer I/S increases, and discrete illite decreases.

Saline fluid flow and hydrocarbon migration and maturation as related to geopressure, Frio Formation, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

The Pleasant Bayou geopressured-geothermal test wells in Brazoria County, Texas, display a prominent thermal-maturity anomaly in the Oligocene Anahuac and Frio Formations. Highly geopressured, more-mature shales are interbedded with hydropressured to moderately geopressured sandstones in the upper Frio and Anahuac. In contrast, shales and sandstones in the lower Frio, including the Andrau geopressured-geothermal production zone, are highly geopressured but exhibit lower thermal maturities. Vitrinite-reflectance data, supported by hydrocarbon-maturation data and anomalous concentrations of C/sub 5/ to C/sub 7/ hydrocarbons at Pleasant Bayou, indicate that the upper Frio was subjected to an extended period of hot, extremely saline, basinal fluid flow which caused the above thermal anomaly. Regional salinity studies (Morton and others, 1983) suggest that regional growth faults were the conduits for vertical basinal brine movement at depth. At shallower levels the upwelling waters migrated laterally through permeable sandstone-rich sections such as the upper Frio. Anomalously mature gasoline-range (C/sub 5/-C/sub 7/) hydrocarbons were introduced into the upper Frio by this process. Fluid influx in the lower Frio was probably limited by high geopressure, consequently maturity in the deep Frio section (greater than 14,000 ft) remained consistent with the regional geothermal gradient.

Groundwater withdrawals 1976, 1990, and 2000--10 and land-surface-elevation changes 2000--10 in Harris, Galveston, Fort Bend, Montgomery, and Brazoria Counties, Texas  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The study area comprising Harris County and parts of Galveston, Fort Bend, Montgomery, and Brazoria Counties in southeastern Texas forms part of one of the largest areas of land-surface-elevation change in the United States. Land-surface-elevation change in the study area primarily is caused by the withdrawal of groundwater. Groundwater withdrawn from the Chicot and Evangeline aquifers has been the primary source of water for municipal supply, industrial and commercial use, and irrigation in the study area. Groundwater withdrawals cause compaction of clay and silt layers abundant in the aquifers, which has in turn resulted in the widespread, substantial land-surface-elevation changes in the region with increased flooding. To estimate land-surface-elevation changes, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District (HGSD), documented land-surface-elevation changes in the study area that occurred during 2000–10 and 2005–10 based on elevation data measured by 11 USGS borehole-extensometer sites, a National Geodetic Survey Continuously Operating Reference Station, and Global Positioning System Port-A-Measure (PAM) sites operated by the HGSD and the Fort Bend Subsidence District. Groundwater withdrawals in the study area also were documented for 1976, 1990, and 2000–10. In 1976, about 428.9 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) were withdrawn from the aquifer system in Harris County, but by 2000, because of HGSD regulation, withdrawals had decreased to about 337.8 Mgal/d, or about a 21-percent reduction since 1976. By 2010, withdrawals had decreased to about 227.1 Mgal/d, or about a 47-percent reduction since 1976. Among the counties in the study area, the largest decrease in groundwater withdrawals has occurred in Galveston County since 1976. In 1976, about 27.4 Mgal/d were withdrawn from the aquifer system, and by 2000, withdrawals had decreased to about 4.12 Mgal/d, or about an 85-percent reduction since 1976. By 2010, withdrawals had decreased to about 0.626 Mgal/d, or about a 98-percent decrease since 1976. Since the mid-1970s, Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties have undergone extensive urban development and corresponding large increases in groundwater withdrawals. Total groundwater withdrawal for Fort Bend County in 1976 was about 16.0 Mgal/d, and by 2000, withdrawals had increased to about 86.5 Mgal/d, or about a 441-percent increase since 1976. By 2010, withdrawals in Fort Bend County had increased to about 99.8 Mgal/d, or about a 524-percent increase since 1976. Total groundwater withdrawal for Montgomery County in 1976 was about 7.84 Mgal/d, and by 2000, withdrawals had increased to about 43.6 Mgal/d, or about a 456-percent increase since 1976. By 2010, withdrawals in Montgomery County had increased to about 64.2 Mgal/d, or about a 719-percent increase since 1976. Total groundwater withdrawal in Brazoria County in 1976 was about 18.0 Mgal/d, and by 2000, withdrawals had increased to about 26.0 Mgal/d, or about a 44-percent increase. By 2010, withdrawals in Brazoria County had increased to about 24.7 Mgal/d, or about a 37-percent increase since 1976. Measured land-surface-elevation changes from December 31, 2000, to December 31, 2010, ranged from an elevation increase of 0.06 feet (ft), or an average increase in elevation of 0.006 ft per year, at the Seabrook borehole extensometer located near Seabrook, Tex., to an elevation decrease of 1.28 ft, or an average decrease in elevation of 0.128 ft per year, at a PAM station north of Jersey Village, Tex. (PAM 07). Measured land-surface-elevation changes from December 31, 2005, to December 31, 2010, ranged from an elevation increase of 0.07 ft, or an average increase in elevation of 0.014 ft per year, at PAM 09 in far northeastern Harris County to an elevation decrease of 0.51 ft, or an average decrease in elevation of 0.102 ft per year, at PAM 07.

Simulation-optimization approach to assess groundwater availability in Refugio County, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Sustainable management of groundwater resources is critical for viable development of semi-arid regions. Refugio County, TX, is predominantly a rural community that is in close proximity to two large urban areas of Corpus Christi and San Antonio. Large-scale water supply projects are being planned to export surplus water available in Refugio County to nearby growing cities. Being a coastal county with several sensitive bays and estuaries, these projects have caused concerns with regard to decreases in freshwater inflows to coastal bodies and raised the possibility of saltwater intrusion. A simulation model characterizing groundwater flow in the shallower unconfined and the deeper semi-confined formations of the Gulf coast aquifer was calibrated and evaluated. The model results were used in conjunction with a mathematical programming scheme to estimate maximum available groundwater in the county. Stakeholder concerns were incorporated as constraints, which included prevention of saltwater intrusion in the aquifer, limiting the amount of allowable drawdown in shallow aquifers, as well as maintaining current flow gradients especially near baseflow-dependent streams and rivers. For the conditions assumed in this study, the model results indicate that roughly 4.93 × 107 m3 of water can be extracted in a typical year. The management model was noted to be very sensitive to the imposed saltwater intrusion constraint.

Upper Strawn (Desmoinesian) carbonate and clastic depositional environments, SE King County, TX  

SciTech Connect

The Pennsylvanian upper Strawn Group of southeast King County, Texas, provides a unique setting to study interactions between coeval carbonate and clastic deposition during the Desmoinesian. One of the most perplexing problems is the relationship of massive Pennsylvanian platform carbonates to shallow-water marine and deltaic sediments. Within the study area carbonate facies were deposited along the northern edge of the Knox-Baylor trough on the Spur platform, and terrigenous clastics were carried toward the Midland basin through the Knox-Baylor trough. Based on the analysis of subsurface cores, five carbonate lithofacies and four clastic lithofacies were recognized in southeast King County, Texas. The distribution and geometry of these lithofacies are related to variations in the rate of subsidence in the Knox-Baylor trough, Pennsylvanian tectonics, deltaic progradation, avulsion and compaction. The platform carbonates within the northern region record environments within the carbonate platform complex, including middle platform, outer platform, algal mound, and platform margin. The quartzarenitic sandstones within the southern region occur in a variety of complex depositional geometries, including distributary bar fingers, lobate deltas, and offshore bars. The upper Strawn Group provides an attractive area for exploration geology. Both carbonates and clastics provide excellent reservoirs from a depth of approximately 5,000 to 6,000 ft. Total production since the early 1940s, within the area is over 100,000,000 bbl of oil. Multiple pay zones within a 600-ft interval also provide an added incentive for exploration. Areas within and around the Knox-Baylor trough deserve additional study due to these relatively shallow, unexplored, multiple pay zones.

Preliminary Test Results of the First Geopressured-Geothermal Design Well, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

The Pleasant Bayou #2 Geopressured-Geothermal test well was completed in the summer of 1979. The C sand of the Frio formation was selected for completion on the basis of core analysis, well logs, and drill stem tests. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the results of the short term production tests run on the Pleasant Bayou #2 well during 1979 and the Fall of 1980. These tests were analyzed using conventional transient pressure test analysis methods. The most significant test run during 1979 was a ten day drawdown test from December 3 to December 14 followed by a 20 day buildup period, during which reservoir pressure response was observed. After a hiatus of nine months, a second production test was conducted over a period of 45 days beginning on September 16, 1980. The well was shut in on October 31, 1980. Pressure buildup data continues to be monitered. Both production tests indicate a formation permeability of 200 millidarcies. The presence of a permeability interruption located approximately 3700 feet from the wellbore is also suggested by these tests. During the last production test, a producing gas-water ratio of 20 standard cubic feet per barrel of produced water was observed. An additional 9-12 standard cubic feet of gas per barrel was found in the water downstream of the separator. The total gas-water ratio of 29-32 SCF/bbl is in reasonable agreement with laboratory data and correlations for this produced brine. The major growth fault which forms the reservoir boundary to the northwest of the well is evident from the pressure drawdown data obtained during the last production period. The last production test also indicates an apparent rate dependent skin effect.

Pleasant Bayou geopressured/geothermal testing project, Brazoria County, Texas. Final report  

SciTech Connect

Phase II-B production testing of the Pleasant Bayou No. 2 well began September 22, 1982. The test plan was designed to evaluate the capabilities of the geopressured-geothermal reservoir during an extended flow period. Tests were conducted to determine reservoir areal extent; aquifer fluid properties; fluid property change with production; information on reservoir production drive mechanism; long-term scale and corrosion control methods; and disposal well operations. Operatinal aspects of geopressured-geothermal production were also evaluated. The test was discontinued prematurely in May 1983 because of a production tubing failure. Most of the production tubing was recovered from the well and cause of the failure was determined. Plans for recompletion of the well were prepared. However, the well was not recompleted because of funding constraints and/or program rescheduling. In March 1984, the Department of Energy, Nevada Operations Office (DOE/NV) directed that the site be placed in a standby-secured condition. In August 1984, the site was secured. Routine site maintenance and security was provided during the secured period.

First order leveling: Pleasant Bayou geothermal test site, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

First order leveling to be conducted as part of an environmental monitoring program for a geopressured test well was reported. 39.43 kilometers of first order levels were run to NGS specifications. Twelve Class B type bench marks were set to NGS specifications. The adjusted elevation of bench mark C-1209 was used as a starting elevation and is based on a supplementary adjustment of April 6, 1979 by NGS. The closure for the loop around the well site is -0.65 millimeters. The distance around the loop is 1.29 kilometers, the allowable error of closure was 4.54 millimeters. The initial leveling of this well was performed in 1977. A thorough search for their monumentation was conducted. No monuments were found due to the lack of adequate monument descriptions. Therefore, an elevation comparison summary for this report is only available along the NGS lines outside the well area. The first order level tie to line No. 101 (BMA-1208) was +3.37 millimeters in 17.21 kilometers. The allowable error of closure was 12.44 millimeters.

TX-100 manufacturing final project report.  

SciTech Connect

This report details the work completed under the TX-100 blade manufacturing portion of the Carbon-Hybrid Blade Developments: Standard and Twist-Coupled Prototype project. The TX-100 blade is a 9 meter prototype blade designed with bend-twist coupling to augment the mitigation of peak loads during normal turbine operation. This structural coupling was achieved by locating off axis carbon fiber in the outboard portion of the blade skins. The report will present the tooling selection, blade production, blade instrumentation, blade shipping and adapter plate design and fabrication. The baseline blade used for this project was the ERS-100 (Revision D) wind turbine blade. The molds used for the production of the TX-100 were originally built for the production of the CX-100 blade. The same high pressure and low pressure skin molds were used to manufacture the TX-100 skins. In order to compensate for the difference in skin thickness between the CX-100 and the TX-100, however, a new TX-100 shear web plug and mold were required. Both the blade assembly fixture and the root stud insertion fixture used for the CX-100 blades could be utilized for the TX-100 blades. A production run of seven TX-100 prototype blades was undertaken at TPI Composites during the month of October, 2004. Of those seven blades, four were instrumented with strain gauges before final assembly. After production at the TPI Composites facility in Rhode Island, the blades were shipped to various test sites: two blades to the National Wind Technology Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado, two blades to Sandia National Laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico and three blades to the United States Department of Agriculture turbine field test facility in Bushland, Texas. An adapter plate was designed to allow the TX-100 blades to be installed on existing Micon 65/13M turbines at the USDA site. The conclusion of this program is the kick-off of the TX-100 blade testing at the three testing facilities.

Structures and physical properties of R2TX3 compounds  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Rare-earth compounds have been an attractive subject based on the unique electronic structures of the rare-earth elements. Novel ternary intermetallic compounds R2TX3 (R = rare-earth element or U, T = transition-metal element, X = Si, Ge, Ga, In) are a significant branch of this research field due to their complex and intriguing physical properties, such as magnetic order at low temperature, spin-glass behavior, Kondo effect, heavy fermion behavior, and so on. The unique physical properties of R2TX3 compounds are related to distinctive electronic structures, crystal structures, microinteraction, and external environment. Most R2TX3 compounds crystallize in AlB2-type or derived AlB2-type structures and exhibit many similar properties. This paper gives a concise review of the structures and physical properties of these compounds. Spin glass, magnetic susceptibility, resistivity, and specific heat of R2TX3 compounds are discussed.

Factors controlling porosity and permeability in geopressured Frio sandstone reservoirs, general crude oil/Department of Energy Pleasant Bayou test wells, Brazoria County, Texas  

SciTech Connect

Reservoir characteristics of Frio sandstones in the GCO/DOE Pleasant Bayou No. 1 and No. 2 wells are influenced by depositional environment, sandstone composition, and diagenetic history. The sandstones and shales were deposited in deltaic and continental slope environments. Fluvial channel and distributary-mouth bar sandstones are most favorable for development and preservation of the porosity needed for a geothermal reservoir. Sandstones in the geopressured zone are lithic arkoses and feldspathic litharenites. Depositional matric (detrital material less than 20 micrometers in size) occluded most or all of the potential primary porosity between grains in many of the fine-grained sandstones at the time of deposition. Even if cements are present, dissolution of grains and development of secondary porosity do take place. Permeable geopressured sandstone reservoirs are characterized by porosity that is dominantly secondary. 12 references.

For a variety of reasons, thousands of oil and gas wells have been abandoned in the Gulf Coast Region of the United States. Many of these wells penetrated geopressured zones whose resource potential for power generation was undervalued or ignored. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geopressured-Geothermal Research Program was chartered to improve geothermal technology to the point where electricity could be commercially produced from a substantial number of geopressured resource sites. This research program focused on relatively narrow technical issues that are unique to geopressured resources such as the ability to predict reservoir production capacity based on preliminary flow tests. Three well sites were selected for the research program. These are the Willis Hulin and Gladys McCall sites in Louisiana, and the Pleasant Bayou site in Texas. The final phase of this research project consists of plug and abandonment (P&A) of the wells and site restoration.

Optical and infrared photometry of TX Canum Venaticorum  

SciTech Connect

UBVRJHK photometry during 1979--1982 indicates significant variability in the TX CVn binary system, with the optical brightness diminishing and the object growing redder. In the U band the amplitude was roughly-equal0/sup m/.6, while in the near infrared the brightness declined by 0/sup m/.1, on the average. To within +- 1 subtype, in 1981 the radiation of the system comprised that of a normal K5 giant and a B9 main-sequence star. The rest of the time excess optical emission was present, probably coming from a hot spot. The K-band flux density of the K5 giant implies a distance for TX CVn of roughly-equal1.1 kpc.

Sedimentation of an upper Pennsylvanian phylloid algal mound complex, Hueco Mountains, El Paso County, TX  

SciTech Connect

A Late Pennsylvanian mixed carbonate-clastic sequence is exposed in the Hueco Mountains of west Texas. The sequence begins with deposition of a progradational fan-delta system and marine and tidal-flat carbonates. This unit is dominated by calclithite and shale with minor interbeds of shallow-water calcareous mudstone and wackestone. Shallow-water spiculites are commonly associated with these limestones. A thick carbonate unit composed predominantly of limestone overlies the clastics; it was deposited during or just after a major local transgression. The carbonate sediments were deposited on the submerged delta platform in the following sequence: (1) colonization of the shallow platform by rugose corals and early (or syndepositional) cementation of the zone; (2) establishment of shallow-water dasycladacean algal flats; (3) increasing domination of the environment by phylloid algae in response to increasing water depth; (4) accretion of phylloid algal sediments and formation of mounds (directly overlying the dasycladacean algal flats are a number of small mounds formed by accelerated sedimentation within phylloids algal meadows. The high productivity of the phylloid algae and their sediment-trapping ability allowed sedimentation to keep up with sea level rise. Large bioherms resulted, but because of the difference in accretion rates of various mounds, some grew while others were buried by more successful neighbors); and (5) reestablishment of shallow-water dasycladacean algal flats as a result of shoaling of mounds crests and subsequent increase sedimentation in deeper, quieter water on the lee side of the mound complex.

Sea level fluctuations and ooid diagenesis in the Round Top Palo Pinto field, Fischer County, TX  

SciTech Connect

The principal reservoir facies in the Missourian Round Top Palo Pinto field are ooid grainstones and skeletal packstones/wackestones which cap shallowing-upward depositional cycles. Individual cycles form flat-bedded, tabular limestones 10-50 ft thick, and at least 15 cycles are identified in the 650-ft-thick interval. Individual cycles are laterally extensive and correlatable throughout most of the field. The cycles exhibit abrupt erosional truncation at the contact with an onlapping Virgilian-age clastic sequence, and intraformational erosional scarps with relief up to 150 ft are present. A complete cycle is comprised of basal black shale/mudstone/wackestone, overlain by crinoid/foram wackestone/packstone, capped by ooid/skeletal grainstone. The composition and morphology of the cycles are the result of the interaction between subsidence, carbonate production rates, and sea level fluctuations. The ooid grainstones are 5-20 ft thick and characterized by oomoldic porosity and intergranular spar cement (porosity inversion). The uppermost 2-5 ft of the grainstones are commonly tightly cemented. The ooid grainstones formed during sea level highstands as carbonate production exceeded subsidence, resulting in aggradation. During subsequent lowstands, freshwater lenses were established on exposed oolite islands. Calcite spar cement filled interparticle space and partially replace ooid cortices. Replacement and dissolution fabrics in the ooids are similar to those reported from freshwater phreatic lenses of modern oolite islands in the Bahamas.

TX Cnc AS A MEMBER OF THE PRAESEPE OPEN CLUSTER  

SciTech Connect

We present B-, V-, and I-band CCD photometry of the W UMa-type binary system TX Cnc, which is a member star of the Praesepe open cluster. Based on the observations, new ephemeris and a revised photometric solution of the binary system were derived. Combined with the results of the radial velocity solution contributed by Pribulla et al., the absolute parameters of the system were determined. The mass, radius, and luminosity of the primary component are derived to be 1.35 {+-} 0.02 M {sub sun}, 1.27 {+-} 0.04 R {sub sun}, and 2.13 {+-} 0.11 L {sub sun}. Those for the secondary star are computed as 0.61 {+-} 0.01 M {sub sun}, 0.89 {+-} 0.03 R {sub sun}, and 1.26 {+-} 0.07 L {sub sun}, respectively. Based on these results, a distance modulus of (m - M) {sub V} = 6.34 {+-} 0.05 is determined for the star. It confirms the membership of TX Cnc to the Praesepe open cluster. The evolutionary status and the physical nature of the binary system are discussed compared with the theoretical model.

CX-100 and TX-100 blade field tests.  

SciTech Connect

In support of the DOE Low Wind Speed Turbine (LWST) program two of the three Micon 65/13M wind turbines at the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) center in Bushland, Texas will be used to test two sets of experimental blades, the CX-100 and TX-100. The blade aerodynamic and structural characterization, meteorological inflow and wind turbine structural response will be monitored with an array of 75 instruments: 33 to characterize the blades, 15 to characterize the inflow, and 27 to characterize the time-varying state of the turbine. For both tests, data will be sampled at a rate of 30 Hz using the ATLAS II (Accurate GPS Time-Linked Data Acquisition System) data acquisition system. The system features a time-synchronized continuous data stream and telemetered data from the turbine rotor. This paper documents the instruments and infrastructure that have been developed to monitor these blades, turbines and inflow.

Chemical Contamination of the Lower Rio Grande near Laredo, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Rio Grande River stretches over 2000 miles from the southern Rocky Mountains in Colorado to the tip of Texas where the Rio Grande meets the Gulf of Mexico. It is the natural boundary between U.S. and Mexico from El Paso, TX, to Brownsville, TX. The communities along the border heavily rely upon the Rio Grande as a primary source of water for consumption, agricultural uses, supporting wildlife and recreation. For many years the Rio Grande has been polluted with municipal, industrial, agricultural and farming contaminants from both sides of the border. This pollution has led to the extinction or reduction of certain wildlife species as well as affecting the health of the residences along the border. Even though great strides have been made in monitoring the Rio Grande, there has been a lack of intense monitoring data collection for pollutants such as pesticides. Three sampling sites including Manadas Creek, the Rio Grande River at International Bridge I, and USGS monitoring site 08459200 off of Highway 83 were chosen. The water quality parameters focused include temperature, pH, conductivity, dissolve oxygen (DO), salinity, total dissolved solids, nutrients, metals and pesticides. Preliminary results have shown elevated concentration of total phosphorus and ortho-phosphorus in the Manadas Creek site. Organochlorinated pesticides such as heptachlor and 4, 4 DDE were detected at various concentrations at all sites and endrin aldehyde was found at Manadas Creek site. This research has provided more information on the current chemical contamination level of the Rio Grande in the Laredo area.

Tx2-6 toxin of the Phoneutria nigriventer spider potentiates rat erectile function?  

PubMed Central

The venom of the spider Phoneutria nigriventer contains several toxins that have bioactivity in mammals and insects. Accidents involving humans are characterized by various symptoms including penile erection. Here we investigated the action of Tx2-6, a toxin purified from the P. nigriventer spider venom that causes priapism in rats and mice. Erectile function was evaluated through changes in intracavernosal pressure/mean arterial pressure ratio (ICP/MAP) during electrical stimulation of the major pelvic ganglion (MPG) of normotensive and deoxycorticosterone-acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats. Nitric oxide (NO) release was detected in cavernosum slices with fluorescent dye (DAF-FM) and confocal microscopy. The effect of Tx2-6 was also characterized after intracavernosal injection of a non-selective nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor, L-NAME. Subcutaneous or intravenous injection of Tx2-6 potentiated the elevation of ICP/MAP induced by ganglionic stimulation. L-NAME inhibited penile erection and treatment with Tx2-6 was unable to reverse this inhibition. Tx2-6 treatment induced a significant increase of NO release in cavernosum tissue. Attenuated erectile function of DOCA-salt hypertensive rats was fully restored after toxin injection. Tx2-6 enhanced erectile function in normotensive and DOCA-salt hypertensive rats, via the NO pathway. Our studies suggest that Tx2-6 could be important for development of new pharmacological agents for treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Hubble Space Telescope Spectroscopy of the Carbon Star TX PISCIUM  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ultraviolet spectra obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope of the carbon star TX Piscium (HR 9004) are presented, along with analysis providing information on its outer atmosphere, including flow and turbulent velocities, line formation mechanisms, and variations with time. Both thermal (collisionally excited) and fluorescent emission from the chromosphere of the star appear to be formed near the stellar rest velocity, i.e., in a region below that in which the stellar wind is accelerated. Absorption self-reversals in the Mg II emission confirm the presence of an outflowing stellar wind at a mean velocity of about 9--10 km s-1. Circumstellar absorption features (Mn I and Fe I) overlying the Mg II emission indicate a cool shell expanding at about 5--6 km s-1 relative to the photosphere. The widths (FWHM) of various emission lines indicate that the chromospheric turbulence is at least 16 km s-1, but that it may increase with altitude to as much as 34 km s-1. Three hours of integration on the C II] lines are examined for any signs of variability that might indicate the presence of shocks, but no statistically significant variations are seen. A previous identification (in spectra of UU Aur) of an emission line at 2807 Angstroms, seen only in spectra of carbon stars, as belonging to Fe I multiplet UV45 pumped by the C II] line at 2325 Angstroms is confirmed by the discovery of an absorption feature corresponding exactly to the wavelength of the pumped transition (Fe I UV13) near 2325 Angstroms. Lines from Fe II UV165, previously seen in solar off-limb spectra and in Goddard High-Resolution Spectrograph spectra of alpha Tau, are clearly present. The normally much stronger Fe II UV32, 62, and 63 multiplets are seen but are weaker relative to both the UV165 lines and the intercombination lines of C II] and Si II] than in alpha Tau. The weakness of these Fe II lines is indicated both by their absolute flux levels and by their narrow, single-peaked profiles, which are in sharp contrast to the broad, double-peaked profiles seen in oxygen-rich cool giant and supergiant stars. The weakness of the Fe II lines and the presence of the Fe I 2807 Angstroms line suggest that the ionization fraction of iron (Fe II/Fe I) is significantly lower in the outer atmospheres of carbon stars. Fluxes in emission lines of Fe II and Mg II are >=2--3 times lower than in a 1984 IUE spectrum of TX Psc, confirming that the latter was obtained at an epoch of unusual UV brightness for the star. The Mg II profiles are heavily mutilated by overlying absorption, even more so than in 1984. The TX Psc profiles are very similar to those seen in the carbon star TW Hor but are dramatically different than those in another carbon star, UU Aur, whose lines show violet wing emission out to much shorter wavelengths than in the other two stars.

Molecular composition of organic fine particulate matter in Houston, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Organic fine particulate matter collected in Houston, TX between March 1997 and March 1998 was analyzed to determine the concentration of individual organic compounds. Samples from four sites were analyzed including two industrial locations (Houston Regional Monitoring Corporation (HRM-3) site in Channelview and Clinton Drive site near the Ship Channel Turning Basin), one suburban location (Bingle Drive site in Northwest Houston) and one background site (Galveston Island). At the three urban locations, samples were divided into three seasonal sample aggregates (spring, summer and winter), while at the background site a single annual average sample pool was used. Between 10 and 16 individual samples were pooled to get aggregate samples with enough organic carbon mass for analysis. Overall, 82 individual organic compounds were quantified. These include molecular markers which are compounds unique to specific fine particle sources and can be used to track the relative contribution of source emissions to ambient fine particle levels. The differences both spatially and temporally in these tracers can be used to evaluate the variability in emission source strengths.

Instability and variable toxicity of HBP-Tx, a toxin in the cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa.  

PubMed

It was found that autoxidative degradation is responsible for the inactivation of the unstable Microcystis toxin HBP-Tx. The purified toxin was similar in its properties to the "fast-death-factor" in Microcystis, described as a cyclic peptide in the literature. The apparent presence of an entirely different toxin was simulated by the partially inactivated HBP-Tx. A number of associated fluorescent compounds were identified as the non-toxic degradation products of the toxin. As a consequence, as established method for the detection of other algal toxins was applied. This chemical assay, which uses fluorescent measurement of the oxidized toxin in the cyanobacterium Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, was applicable for HBP-Tx after the removal of interfering degradation products of the toxin. The results obtained with Microcystis toxin HBP-Tx do not confirm suggestions concerning the structure of the "fast-death-factor". PMID:6426092

Fate of the Biological Control Agent Pseudomonas aureofaciens TX-1 after Application to Turfgrass†  

PubMed Central

The fate and impact of Pseudomonas aureofaciens TX-1 following application as a biocontrol agent for fungi in turfgrass were studied. The organism was applied with a modified irrigation system by using a preparation containing 1 × 106 P. aureofaciens TX-1 CFU ml?1 about 100 times between May and August. We examined the impact of this repeated introduction of P. aureofaciens TX-1 (which is known to produce the antimicrobial compound phenazine-1-carboxylic acid) on the indigenous microbial community of the turfgrass system and on establishment of introduced bacteria in the soil system. A PCR primer-DNA hybridization probe combination was developed to accurately monitor the fate of P. aureofaciens TX-1 following application in irrigation water. To assess the impact of frequent P. aureofaciens TX-1 applications on the indigenous bacterial community, turfgrass canopy, thatch, and rhizosphere samples were obtained during the growing season from control and treated plots and subjected to DNA extraction procedures and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). PCR amplification and hybridization of extracted DNA with the P. aureofaciens TX-1-specific primer-probe combination revealed that P. aureofaciens TX-1 not only became established in the rhizosphere and thatch but also was capable of overwintering. Separation of PCR-amplified partial 16S rRNA genes by DGGE showed that the repeated application of P. aureofaciens TX-1 in irrigation water resulted in transient displacement of a leaf surface bacterial community member. There was no obvious alteration of any dominant members of the thatch and rhizosphere microbial communities.

Optimal Cleavage and Oxidative Folding of ?-Conotoxin TxIB as a Therapeutic Candidate Peptide  

PubMed Central

Alpha6beta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of several neuropsychiatric diseases, including addiction and Parkinson’s disease. Alpha-conotoxin (?-CTx) TxIB is a uniquely selective ligand, which blocks ?6/?3?2?3 nAChRs only, but does not block the other subtypes. Therefore, ?-CTx TxIB is a valuable therapeutic candidate peptide. Synthesizing enough ?-CTx TxIB with high yield production is required for conducting wide-range testing of its potential medicinal applications. The current study optimized the cleavage of synthesized ?-CTx TxIB resin-bounded peptide and folding of the cleaved linear peptide. Key parameters influencing cleavage and oxidative folding of ?-CTx TxIB were examined, such as buffer, redox agents, pH, salt, co-solvent and temperature. Twelve conditions were used for cleavage optimization. Fifty-four kinds of one-step oxidative solution were used to assess their effects on each ?-CTx TxIB isomers’ yield. The result indicated that co-solvent choices were particularly important. Completely oxidative folding of globular isomer was achieved when the NH4HCO3 or Tris-HCl folding buffer at 4 °C contained 40% of co-solvent DMSO, and GSH:GSSG (2:1) or GSH only with pH 8~8.7.

Heteromtoxin (HmTx), a novel heterodimeric phospholipase A(2) from Heterometrus laoticus scorpion venom.  

PubMed

Heteromtoxin (HmTx) is a group III phospholipase A(2) produced in Heterometrus laoticus, in Thailand. In this study, HmTx was purified from venom by separation chromatography, and the PLA(2) activity of the fractions was determined by lecithin agar assay. The enzyme is an acidic protein with a pI of 5.6 and an apparent molecular weight of 14018.4 Da. The nucleotide sequence of HmTx contains 649 bp, and the mature protein is predicted to have 131 amino acid residues-104 of which make up the large subunit, and 27 of which make up the small subunit. The subunit structure of HmTx is highly similar to that of the other toxin, Pandinus imperator imperatoxin I (IpTx(i)) and to Mesobuthus tamulus phospholipase A(2) (MtPLA(2)). The 3D-structure of HmTx consists of three conserved alpha-helices: h1 (Lys24-His34), h2 (Cys59-Asp71), and h3 (Ala80-Phe89). The beta-sheet consisted of a single stranded anti-parallel beta-sheet (b1.1 at Glu43-Lys45 and b1.2 at Lys48-Asn50) that was highly similar to the conserved sequences (-CGXG-, -CCXXHDXC- and CXCEXXXXXC-) of Apis mellifera (bee) phospholipases.

Nocturnal NO 3 radical chemistry in Houston, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Radical chemistry in the nocturnal urban boundary layer is dominated by the nitrate radical, NO 3, which oxidizes hydrocarbons and, through the aerosol uptake of N 2O 5, indirectly influences the nitrogen budget. The impact of NO 3 chemistry on polluted atmospheres and urban air quality is, however, not well understood, due to a lack of observations and the strong impact of vertical stability of the boundary layer, which makes nocturnal chemistry highly altitude dependent. Here we present long-path DOAS observations of the vertical distribution of the key nocturnal species O 3, NO 2, and NO 3 during the TRAMP experiment in Summer 2006 in Houston, TX. Our observations confirm the altitude dependence of nocturnal chemistry, which is reflected in the concentration profiles of all trace gases at night. In contrast to other study locations, NO 3 chemistry in Houston is dominated by industrial emissions of alkenes, in particular of isoprene, isobutene, and sporadically 1,3-butadiene, which are responsible for more than 70% of the nocturnal NO 3 loss. The nocturnally averaged loss of NO x in the lowest 300 m of the Houston atmosphere is ˜0.9 ppb h -1, with little day-to-day variability. A comparison with the daytime NO x loss shows that NO 3 chemistry is responsible for 16-50% of the NO x loss in a 24-h period in the lowest 300 m of the atmosphere. The importance of the NO 3 + isoprene/1,3-butadiene reactions implies the efficient formation of organic nitrates and secondary organic aerosol at night in Houston.

LyeTx I, a potent antimicrobial peptide from the venom of the spider Lycosa erythrognatha.  

PubMed

LyeTx I, an antimicrobial peptide isolated from the venom of Lycosa erythrognatha, known as wolf spider, has been synthesised and its structural profile studied by using the CD and NMR techniques. LyeTx I has shown to be active against bacteria (Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus) and fungi (Candida krusei and Cryptococcus neoformans) and able to alter the permeabilisation of L: -alpha-phosphatidylcholine-liposomes (POPC) in a dose-dependent manner. In POPC containing cholesterol or ergosterol, permeabilisation has either decreased about five times or remained unchanged, respectively. These results, along with the observed low haemolytic activity, indicated that antimicrobial membranes, rather than vertebrate membranes seem to be the preferential targets. However, the complexity of biological membranes compared to liposomes must be taken in account. Besides, other membrane components, such as proteins and even specific lipids, cannot be discarded to be important to the preferential action of the LyeTx I to the tested microorganisms. The secondary structure of LyeTx I shows a small random-coil region at the N-terminus followed by an alpha-helix that reached the amidated C-terminus, which might favour the peptide-membrane interaction. The high activity against bacteria together with the moderate activity against fungi and the low haemolytic activity have indicated LyeTx I as a good prototype for developing new antibiotic peptides.

RCRA Assessment Plan for Single-Shell Tank Waste Management Area TX-TY  

SciTech Connect

WMA TX-TY contains underground, single-shell tanks that were used to store liquid waste that contained chemicals and radionuclides. Most of the liquid has been removed, and the remaining waste is regulated under the RCRA as modi¬fied in 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart F and Washington State’s Hazardous Waste Management Act . WMA TX-TY was placed in assessment monitoring in 1993 because of elevated specific conductance. A groundwater quality assessment plan was written in 1993 describing the monitoring activities to be used in deciding whether WMA TX-TY had affected groundwater. That plan was updated in 2001 for continued RCRA groundwater quality assessment as required by 40 CFR 265.93 (d)(7). This document further updates the assessment plan for WMA TX-TY by including (1) information obtained from ten new wells installed at the WMA after 1999 and (2) information from routine quarterly groundwater monitoring during the last five years. Also, this plan describes activities for continuing the groundwater assessment at WMA TX TY.

Daytime HONO vertical gradients during SHARP 2009 in Houston, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Nitrous Acid (HONO) plays an important role in tropospheric chemistry as a precursor of the hydroxyl radical (OH), the most important oxidizing agent in the atmosphere. Nevertheless, the formation mechanisms of HONO are still not completely understood. Recent field observations found unexpectedly high daytime HONO concentrations in both urban and rural areas, which point to unrecognized, most likely photolytically enhanced HONO sources. Several gas-phase, aerosol, and ground surface chemistry mechanisms have been proposed to explain elevated daytime HONO, but atmospheric evidence to favor one over the others is still weak. New information on whether HONO formation occurs in the gas-phase, on aerosol, or at the ground may be derived from observations of the vertical distribution of HONO and its precursor nitrogen dioxide, NO2, as well as from its dependence on solar irradiance or actinic flux. Here we present field observations of HONO, NO2 and other trace gases in three altitude intervals (30-70 m, 70-130 m and 130-300 m) using UCLA's long path DOAS instrument, as well as in situ measurements of OH, NO, photolysis frequencies and solar irradiance, made in Houston, TX, during the Study of Houston Atmospheric Radical Precursor (SHARP) experiment from 20 April to 30 May 2009. The observed HONO mixing ratios were often ten times larger than the expected photostationary state with OH and NO. Larger HONO mixing ratios observed near the ground than aloft imply, but do not clearly prove, that the daytime source of HONO was located at or near the ground. Using a pseudo steady-state (PSS) approach, we calculated the missing daytime HONO formation rates, Punknown, on four sunny days. The NO2-normalized Punknown, Pnorm, showed a clear symmetrical diurnal variation with a maximum around noontime, which was well correlated with actinic flux (NO2 photolysis frequency) and solar irradiance. This behavior, which was found on all clear days in Houston, is a strong indication of a photolytic HONO source. [HONO]/[NO2] ratios also showed a clear diurnal profile, with maxima of 2-3% around noon. PSS calculations show that this behavior cannot be explained by the proposed gas-phase reaction of photoexcited NO2 (NO2*) or any other gas-phase or aerosol photolytic process occurring at similar or longer wavelengths than that of HONO photolysis. HONO formation by aerosol nitrate photolysis in the UV also seems to be unlikely. Pnorm correlated better with solar irradiance (average R2 = 0.85/0.87 for visible/UV) than with actinic flux (R2 = 0.76) on the four sunny days, clearly pointing to HONO being formed at the ground rather than on the aerosol or in the gas-phase. In addition, the observed [HONO]/[NO2] diurnal variation can be explained if the formation of HONO depends on solar irradiance, but not if it depends on the actinic flux. The vertical mixing ratio profiles, together with the stronger correlation with solar irradiance, support the idea that photolytically enhanced NO2 to HONO conversion on the ground was the dominant source of HONO in Houston.

CCD Photometric Study of the Contact Binary TX Cnc in the Young Open Cluster NGC 2632  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

TX Cnc is a member of the young open cluster NGC2632. In the present paper, four CCD epochs of light minimum and a complete V light curve of TX Cnc are presented. A period investigation based on all available photoelectric or CCD data showed that it is superimposed on a long-term increase (dP/dt=+3.97×10-8) and weak evidence suggests that it includes a small-amplitude period oscillation (A3=0d.0028; T3=26.6yr). The light curves in the V band obtained in 2004 were analyzed with the 2003 version of the W-D code. It was shown that TX Cnc is an overcontact binary system with a degree of contact factor f=24.8%. The absolute parameters of the system were calculated: M1=1.319±0.007M?, M2=0.600±0.01M?; R1=1.28±0.19R?, R2=0.91±0.13R?. TX Cnc may be on the TRO-controlled stage of the evolutionary scheme proposed by Qian (2001a, b, 2003a), and may contain an invisible tertiary component (m3?0.097M?). If this is true, the tertiary component has played an important role in the formation and evolution of TX Cnc by removing angular momentum from the central system (Pribulla & Rucinski 2006). In this way the contact binary configuration can be formed in the shortlife time of a young open cluster via AML.

A compensation scheme for transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) I/Q imbalance with the interference of carrier frequency offset for CO-OFDM transmission is demonstrated. It has low over-head using only two specific designed symbols for Rx side I/Q imbalance and two for that of Tx side, respectively. Rx compensation is performed in time domain after OFDM frame synchronization and the Tx I/Q imbalance is compensated in frequency domain after channel and phase estimation. The bit error rate (BER) and Q improvement are evaluated experimentally to demonstrate the effectiveness of compensation algorithms. This scheme performs better with the increase of OSNR.

Inhibition of the myotoxic activity of Bothrops jararacussu venom and its two major myotoxins, BthTX-I and BthTX-II, by the aqueous extract of Tabernaemontana catharinensis A. DC. (Apocynaceae).  

PubMed

Partial neutralization of the myotoxic effect of Bothrops jararacussu venom (BV) and two of its myotoxins [bothropstoxin-I (BthTX-I), catalytically inactive, and II (BthTX-II), showing low PLA2 activity], by the lyophilized aqueous extract of Tabernaemontana catharinensis (AE), was studied in rat isolated soleus muscle preparations (in vitro) and through i.m. injection in the gastrocnemius muscle (in vivo) by determination of creatine kinase (CK) activity and histopathological analysis. Incubation of soleus muscle for 1 h with BV or toxins (20 microg/ml) plus AE (400 microg/ml) added immediately after BV, BthTX-I or BthTX-II reduced CK levels by 53%, 37% and 56%, respectively. The myonecrotic effects of BV (20 microg/ml) upon soleus muscle was reduced 24%, 35% and 36% when AE (400 microg/ml) was added 1 h after BV and CK was evaluated 30 min, 1 and 2 h later, respectively. For BthTX-I these values were 46%, 48% and 47%, while for BthTX-II no inhibitory effect was detected. Histological analysis of soleus muscle after incubation with AE (400 microg/ml, 1 h) did not reveal any change in muscle fibers, but severe necrosis induced by BV or toxins (20 microg/ml) was clearly in evidence, and decreased significantly when soleus muscle was protected by AE. This protection was also observed when AE was administered 1 h after BV or BthTX-I, but not after BthTX-II. AE did not inhibit the catalytic PLA2 activity of BthTX-II or BV and did not change the PAGE pattern of BV, BthTX-I or BthTX-II. In vivo assays were performed in 100-g rats and maximal CK release was attained at a dose of 100 microg of BV, 3 h after injection. AE was not effective when injected 20 s after BV or toxins. However, injecting BV or toxins (100 microg), which were pre-incubated with AE (2 mg) caused an inhibition of 57%, 59% and 51%, respectively, with zero time pre-incubation, but was less effective with 1 h pre-incubation. This plant represents a potential source of promising myotoxin inhibitors. PMID:15693719

Cost-effectiveness analysis of TxDOT CNG fleet conversion, volume 2  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Increased emphasis on energy efficiency and air quality has resulted in a number of state and federal initiatives examining the use of alternative fuels for motor vehicles. Texas' program for alternate fuels includes compressed natural gas (CNG). Based on an analysis of 30-year life-cycle costs, development of a natural gas vehicle (NGV) program for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) would cost about $47 million (in 1991 dollars). These costs include savings from lower priced natural gas, infrastructure costs for a fast-fueling station, vehicle costs, and operating costs. The 30-year life-cycle costs translate into an average annual vehicle cost increase of $596, or about 4.9 cents more per vehicle mile of travel. Based on the cost-effectiveness analysis and assumptions, there are currently no TxDOT stations suitable for conversion to compressed natural gas.

Snohomish County Biodiesel Project  

SciTech Connect

Snohomish County in western Washington State began converting its vehicle fleet to use a blend of biodiesel and petroleum diesel in 2005. As prices for biodiesel rose due to increased demand for this cleaner-burning fuel, Snohomish County looked to its farmers to ���¢��������grow���¢������� this fuel locally. Suitable seed crops that can be crushed to extract oil for use as biodiesel feedstock include canola, mustard, and camelina. The residue, or mash, has high value as an animal feed. County farmers began with 52 acres of canola and mustard crops in 2006, increasing to 250 acres and 356 tons in 2008. In 2009, this number decreased to about 150 acres and 300 tons due to increased price for mustard seed.

Mitochondrial structure and function in the untreated Jackson toxic milk (tx-j) mouse, a model for Wilson disease.  

PubMed

Structural changes in hepatocellular mitochondria are characteristic of Wilson disease (WD). Features include variability in size and shape, increased density of matrix, discreet inclusions, and cystic dilatation of the cristae. We examined the functional basis for these mitochondrial changes in the toxic milk (tx-j) mouse model for WD. Its normal syngeic strain, C3H, served as control. Hepatic histology was near-normal in tx-j mice at 3-4-months-old and showed mild inflammation and steatosis at 6-months-old. Transmission electron microscopy showed typical mitochondrial abnormalities, specifically cystic dilatation of tips of cristae, in 3, 4, and 6-month-old tx-j mice and none in normal 3-month-old C3H mice. Citrate synthase (CS) activity was initially lower in tx-j mice than age-matched controls but increased over the first 6 months such that it was significantly greater at 5 and 6-months-old (p<0.003). No evidence for hepatic mtDNA depletion was found by long-PCR analysis. NB-PAGE showed preservation of all complexes in the oxidative-phosphorylation chain except complex IV which declined markedly from 5-months-old onwards. Hepatic complex IV activity was significantly decreased in 5-month-old tx-j mice (p<0.04). Expression of mitochondrial transfer factor A (TFAM) mRNA declined progressively in 6-8-month-old tx-j mice; immunodetectable protein levels declined in parallel. Expression of mtSSB mRNA was uniformly low in tx-j mice from 1-8-months-old. Levels of two mitochondrial antioxidant proteins capable of binding copper, thioredoxin-2 and peroxiredoxin-3, rose over the first 6 months of life. Mitochondrial changes occur early in WD and reflect complex, probably oxidative, injury. PMID:17981064

Helium, tritium, and protium NMR studies of tritide-free aged PdTx  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pulsed NMR relaxation-time measurements have been performed on PdTx, aged approximately eight years, after first removing most of the tritium by room-temperature desorption and again after addition of protium to one of these tritide-free samples. Spin-lattice and spin-spin relaxation times T1 and T2 were measured for both tritium and 3He in the temperature range 100-300 K, while T1, T2, and the rotating-frame relaxation time T1? were obtained for protium in the same temperature range. The relative magnitudes of T1, the decay time T2m of the Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill signals, and the line-shape decay time T*2 for 3He in tritide-free PdTx, are consistent with the distribution of the helium as microbubbles in the Pd matrix. The increase in the 3He values of T1 upon addition of protium to an atomic ratio [H]/[Pd]=0.68 is attributed partially to a decrease in the Fermi-level density of states and partially to other internal relaxation mechanisms. Analysis of the dipolar component T1d of T1, for protons in the sample to which protium was added, gives a value of the diffusion activation energy at temperatures between 230 and 300 K which is in agreement with that for ?-PdHx. Comparison with the triton NMR in tritide-free PdTx indicates that the residual tritium, rather than forming a dilute solid solution, occupies unusual sites in the Pd lattice, perhaps at internal surfaces surrounding the 3He microbubbles.

Single Particle Laser Ablation Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometer: Maiden Voyage to Houston, TX.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

BNL Single Particle Laser Ablation Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometer (SPLAT-MS) was designed for in-situ characterization of the size and composition of individual aerosols. The aerodynamic lens serves as the sampling inlet. It focuses over 90 percent of entrained particles in the 50nm to 1000nm size range into a well-defined beam of less than 1mm diameter with very low divergence. Two stages of optical detection are used to indicate the presence of particles larger than 50nm and for velocity/size determination. The ablation laser is fired synchronously with the particle's arrival at the inlet to the TOF-MS, it ablates the particle producing ionic fragments for mass spectroscopic analysis by a reflectron time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The resolution of the instrument in mass-to-charge units is 1000. The TOF-MS spectra are digitized at a rate of 500 MHz, and data is transferred to the computer. A very rapid transfer rate of 100 MB/sec allows for high-resolution mass analysis of 20 particles per second. The instrument was deployed for its maiden voyage during the Texas 2000 Air Quality Study in Houston, TX, where it was located on a tall building (300m) near the west of the Houston city center. Over 230,000 particles in size range from 50nm to 3500nm were detected, sized and their composition characterized. Preliminary results of data analysis and visualization will be presented in the context of the overall TX 2000 field campaign. So far 25 particle classes and subclasses were identified and examined based on multivariate binary classification of the TX 2000 data set. The data indicate that the two most abundant types of particles in Houston, TX were sulfate and organic containing particles and that most often these two very broad classes overlap, since many of the sulfate particles were internally mixed with organics. High instrument sampling rate of approximately 2 particles per seconds and the developed visualization and analysis tools allow for an explorations of the data with high resolution in time, size and class, which will be illustrated on the example of the power plant plume episode.

Evidence for large superhumps in TX Col and V4742 Sgr  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Since the discovery of the largest positive superhump period in TV Col (6.4 h), we have started a program to search for superhumps in cataclysmic variables (CVs) with large orbital periods. In this work, we summarize preliminary results of our observations of TX Col and V4742 Sgr. TX Col is an intermediate polar with a 5.7-h orbital period. V4742 Sgr is a recent (2002) nova with no known periods. CCD unfiltered continuous photometry of these two objects was carried out during 56 nights (350 hours) in 2002-2003. The time series analysis reveals the presence of several periods in both power spectra. In TX Col, in addition to the orbital period of 5.7 h, we found peaks at 7.1 h and 5.0 h. These are interpreted as positive and negative superhumps correspondingly, although the effects of the quasi-periodic oscillations at ~2 h (which may cause spurious signals) were not taken into consideration. In the light curve of V4742 Sgr two long periods are detected - 6.1 and 5.4 h as well as a short-term period at 1.6 h. This result suggests that V4742 Sgr is an intermediate polar candidate and a permanent superhump system with a large orbital period (5.4 h) and a superhump period excess of 13%. If these results are confirmed, TX Col and V4742 Sgr join TV Col to form a group of intermediate polars with extremely large superhump periods. There seems to be now growing evidence that superhumps can occur in intermediate polars with long orbital periods, which is very likely inconsistent with the theoretical prediction that superhumps can only occur in systems with mass ratios below 0.33. Alternatively, if the mass ratio in these systems is nevertheless below the theoretical limit, they should harbour undermassive secondaries and very massive white dwarfs, near the Chandrasekhar limit, which would make them excellent candidates for progenitors of supernovae type Ia.

Chemical Modifications of PhTX-I Myotoxin from Porthidium hyoprora Snake Venom: Effects on Structural, Enzymatic, and Pharmacological Properties  

PubMed Central

We recently described the isolation of a basic PLA2 (PhTX-I) from Porthidium hyoprora snake venom. This toxin exhibits high catalytic activity, induces in vivo myotoxicity, moderates footpad edema, and causes in vitro neuromuscular blockade. Here, we describe the chemical modifications of specific amino acid residues (His, Tyr, Lys, and Trp), performed in PhTX-I, to study their effects on the structural, enzymatic, and pharmacological properties of this myotoxin. After chemical treatment, a single His, 4 Tyr, 7 Lys, and one Trp residues were modified. The secondary structure of the protein remained unchanged as measured by circular dichroism; however other results indicated the critical role played by Lys and Tyr residues in myotoxic, neurotoxic activities and mainly in the cytotoxicity displayed by PhTX-I. His residue and therefore catalytic activity of PhTX-I are relevant for edematogenic, neurotoxic, and myotoxic effects, but not for its cytotoxic activity. This dissociation observed between enzymatic activity and some pharmacological effects suggests that other molecular regions distinct from the catalytic site may also play a role in the toxic activities exerted by this myotoxin. Our observations supported the hypothesis that both the catalytic sites as the hypothetical pharmacological sites are relevant to the pharmacological profile of PhTX-I.

The segments were subsampled and analyzed in accordance with the Tank 241-TX-118 Push Mode Core sampling and Analysis Plan (TSAP) (Benar, 1997), the Safety Screening Data Quality Objective (DQO) (Dukelow, et al., 1995), the Data Quality Objective to Support Resolution of the Organic Complexant Safety Issue (Organic DQO) (Turner, et al, 1995) and the Historical Model Evaluation Data Requirements (Historical DQO) (Sipson, et al., 1995). The analytical results are included in the data summary table (Table 1). None of the samples submitted for Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) exceeded notification limits as stated in the TSAP (Benar, 1997). One sample exceeded the Total Alpha Activity (AT) analysis notification limit of 38.4{micro}Ci/g (based on a bulk density of 1.6), core 236 segment 1 lower half solids (S98T001524). Appropriate notifications were made. Plutonium 239/240 analysis was requested as a secondary analysis.

Fast ethernet: 100BaseTX and 100BaseT4 network interface adaptor architectures  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Fast Ethernet is an order of magnitude faster than regular ethernet, but the rampup, cost reduction and commercialization also appears to be happening ten times quicker. The PCI bus and its performance improvements has also made Fast Ethernet a much more viable solution. The first generation 10/100 Network Interface Cards (NIC), Switches and Repeaters arrived in 1994. Now there are several versions of each available. The PRO/100 series NIC (adapter) began volume shipments in October 1995. The IEEE Standard IEEE-802.3u/D5.3 was passed in record time for technologies of this magnitude. The standard includes 100BaseTX and 100BaseT4. The former requires two pair of Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wiring and the latter four pair of Category 3 UTP. 100BaseTX is full duplex capable. 100BaseT4 operates over ordinary telephone wiring cables. The rapid integration into less silicon of all the 10/1000 blocks, and attendant cost reduction is causing even a more viable Fast Ethernet solution, since pricing is converging to that of regular ethernet NICs and Repeaters.

Growth factors, kinetics and biodegradation mechanism associated with Pseudomonas nitroreducens TX1 grown on octylphenol polyethoxylates.  

PubMed

The growth properties and biodegradation mechanism of a Gram-negative bacterium, Pseudomonas nitroreducens TX1 that was able to grow on branched octylphenol polyethoxylates (OPEO(n), average n=9.5) as the sole carbon source over a wide concentration range (1-100,000 mgl(-1)) were studied. Analysis of growth factors indicated the highest specific growth rate (micro) of 0.53 h(-1) was obtained at an initial concentration of 5,000 mgl(-1) OPEO(n). An optimal C/N ratio of 12 was obtained for (NH(4))(2)SO(4) as the nitrogen source in a cultivated medium at pH 7. The kinetic analysis demonstrated that bacterial growth and OPEO(n) degradation followed the Monod equation and were based on a substrate concentration inhibition model and pseudo-first-order reaction, respectively. The substrate inhibition coefficient was over 18,000 mgl(-1) and this indicates that the strain has an ability to sustain growth at high concentrations of OPEO(n) and use it as the sole carbon source under such a stress condition. Furthermore, LC-MS analysis showed that the biodegradation mechanism of dodecyl octaethoxylate (AEO8) by P. nitroreducens TX1 was the sequential cleavage of the ethoxylate chain. PMID:16545517

Molecular cloning and sequence analysis of cDNAs encoding a beta-toxin-like peptide and two MkTx I homologues from scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch.  

PubMed

Three full-length cDNAs, one encoding the precursor of a beta-toxin-like peptide (named BmKBT) and the other two encoding those of (MkTx I) homologues (named MkTx II and MkTx III, respectively), were isolated from a venom gland cDNA library of the Chinese scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch, by screening with a cDNA fragment generated by PCR. The encoded precursor of BmKBT contained 83 amino acid residues including a signal peptide of 19 residues, a mature peptide of 63 residues and an extra basic residue (Lys) which have to be removed in the processing step. The deduced amino acid sequence of BmKBT showed 52% homology to that of beta-neurotoxin TsVII isolated from scorpion Tityus serrulatus. However, the positions of disulfide bridges have a little variation between the two peptides. The precursors of MkTx II and MkTx III both contained 85 amino acid residues including a signal peptide of 19 residues, a mature peptide of 64 residues and two extra residues (Gly-Arg) which have to be removed in the processing step, too. There was high sequence similarity (90%) between the two peptides. The sequences of mature MkTx II and MkTx III were highly homologous with MkTx I isolated from scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch, both showing 90% identities. PMID:10978740

Nonaflatoxigenic Aspergillus flavus TX9-8 competitively prevents aflatoxin accumulation by A. flavus isolates of large and small sclerotial morphotypes.  

PubMed

Aflatoxins are a family of highly toxic and carcinogenic toxins produced by several Aspergillus species. Aflatoxin contamination of agricultural commodities both pre- and postharvest is a serious food safety issue and a significant economic concern. Using nonaflatoxigenic A. flavus isolates to competitively exclude toxigenic A. flavus isolates in agricultural fields has become an adopted approach to reduce aflatoxin contamination. From screening subgroups of nonaflatoxigenic A. flavus, we identified an A. flavus isolate, TX9-8, which competed well with three A. flavus isolates producing low, intermediate, and high levels of aflatoxins, respectively. TX9-8 has a defective polyketide synthase gene (pksA), which is necessary for aflatoxin biosynthesis. Co-inoculating TX9-8 at the same time with large sclerotial (L strain) A. flavus isolates at a ratio of 1:1 or 1:10 (TX9-8:toxigenic) prevented aflatoxin accumulation. The intervention of TX9-8 on small sclerotial (S strain) A. flavus isolates varied and depended on isolate and ratio of co-inoculation. At a ratio of 1:1 TX9-8 prevented aflatoxin accumulation by A. flavus CA28 and reduced aflatoxin accumulation 10-fold by A. flavus CA43. No decrease in aflatoxin accumulation was apparent when TX9-8 was inoculated 24 h after toxigenic L- or S strain A. flavus isolates started growing. The competitive effect likely is due to TX9-8 outgrowing toxigenic A. flavus isolates. PMID:17140692

Harpalycin 2 inhibits the enzymatic and platelet aggregation activities of PrTX-III, a D49 phospholipase A2 from Bothrops pirajai venom  

PubMed Central

Background Harpalycin 2 (HP-2) is an isoflavone isolated from the leaves of Harpalyce brasiliana Benth., a snakeroot found in northeast region of Brazil and used in folk medicine to treat snakebite. Its leaves are said to be anti-inflammatory. Secretory phospholipases A2 are important toxins found in snake venom and are structurally related to those found in inflammatory conditions in mammals, as in arthritis and atherosclerosis, and for this reason can be valuable tools for searching new anti-phospholipase A2 drugs. Methods HP-2 and piratoxin-III (PrTX-III) were purified through chromatographic techniques. The effect of HP-2 in the enzymatic activity of PrTX-III was carried out using 4-nitro-3-octanoyloxy-benzoic acid as the substrate. PrTX-III induced platelet aggregation was inhibited by HP-2 when compared to aristolochic acid and p-bromophenacyl bromide (p-BPB). In an attempt to elucidate how HP-2 interacts with PrTX-III, mass spectrometry, circular dichroism and intrinsic fluorescence analysis were performed. Docking scores of the ligands (HP-2, aristolochic acid and p-BPB) using PrTX-III as target were also calculated. Results HP-2 inhibited the enzymatic activity of PrTX-III (IC50 11.34?±?0.28??g/mL) although it did not form a stable chemical complex in the active site, since mass spectrometry measurements showed no difference between native (13,837.34?Da) and HP-2 treated PrTX-III (13,856.12?Da). A structural analysis of PrTX-III after treatment with HP-2 showed a decrease in dimerization and a slight protein unfolding. In the platelet aggregation assay, HP-2 previously incubated with PrTX-III inhibited the aggregation when compared with untreated protein. PrTX-III chemical treated with aristolochic acid and p-BPB, two standard PLA2 inhibitors, showed low inhibitory effects when compared with the HP-2 treatment. Docking scores corroborated these results, showing higher affinity of HP-2 for the PrTX-III target (PDB code: 1GMZ) than aristolochic acid and p-BPB. HP-2 previous incubated with the platelets inhibits the aggregation induced by untreated PrTX-III as well as arachidonic acid. Conclusion HP-2 changes the structure of PrTX-III, inhibiting the enzymatic activity of this enzyme. In addition, PrTX-III platelet aggregant activity was inhibited by treatment with HP-2, p-BPB and aristolochic acid, and these results were corroborated by docking scores.

Translocation t(X;11)(q22;q25) in a woman with premature ovarian failure.  

PubMed

Genetic, autoimmune, environmental, iatrogenic, and idiopathic factors are known to cause premature ovarian failure (POF). This report describes an X;11 translocation, t(X;11)(q22;q25), in a woman diagnosed with POF. The FSH level was found to be elevated. Menstrual cycle was regular initially, and she had a spontaneous abortion at the 5th month of gestation at 16 years of age. Her mother was karyotypically normal while her father was not investigated. Male carriers of X;autosome translocations are mostly infertile, and hence the translocation is presumed to be of de novo origin. Fluorescence in situ hybridization using whole chromosome paint probes confirmed the rearrangement. PMID:23429171

Cost-effectiveness analysis of TxDOT CNG fleet conversion, volume 1  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Increased emphasis on energy efficiency and air quality has resulted in a number of state and federal initiatives examining the use of alternative fuels for motor vehicles. A Texas program for alternate fuels includes compressed natural gas (CNG). Based on analysis of 30-year life-cycle costs, development of a natural gas vehicle (NGV) program for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) would cost about $47 million (in 1991 dollars). These costs include savings from lower-priced natural gas, infrastructure costs for a fast-fueling station, vehicle costs, and operating costs. The 30-year life-cycle costs translate into an average annual vehicle cost increase of $596, or about 4.9 cents more per vehicle mile of travel.

Cellular and transcriptional responses of Crassostrea gigas hemocytes exposed in vitro to brevetoxin (PbTx-2).  

PubMed

Hemocytes mediate a series of immune reactions essential for bivalve survival in the environment, however, the impact of harmful algal species and their associated phycotoxins upon bivalve immune system is under debate. To better understand the possible toxic effects of these toxins, Crassostrea gigas hemocytes were exposed to brevetoxin (PbTx-2). Hemocyte viability, monitored through the neutral red retention and MTT reduction assays, and apoptosis (Hoechst staining) remained unchanged during 12 h of exposure to PbTx-2 in concentrations up to 1000 µg/L. Despite cell viability and apoptosis remained stable, hemocytes incubated for 4 h with 1000 µg/L of PbTx-2 revealed higher expression levels of Hsp70 (p < 0.01) and CYP356A1 (p < 0.05) transcripts and a tendency to increase FABP expression, as evaluated by Real-Time quantitative PCR. The expression of other studied genes (BPI, IL-17, GSTO, EcSOD, Prx6, SOD and GPx) remained unchanged. The results suggest that the absence of cytotoxic effects of PbTx-2 in Crassostrea gigas hemocytes, even at high concentrations, allow early defense responses to be produced by activating protective mechanisms associated to detoxification (CYP356A1 and possibly FABP) and stress (Hsp70), but not to immune or to antioxidant (BPI, IL-17, EcSOD, Prx6, GPx and SOD) related genes.

Minocycline inhibits glial proliferation in the H-Tx rat model of congenital hydrocephalus  

PubMed Central

Background Reactive astrocytosis and microgliosis are important features of the pathophysiology of hydrocephalus, and persistent glial "scars" that form could exacerbate neuroinflammation, impair cerebral perfusion, impede neuronal regeneration, and alter biomechanical properties. The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of minocycline, an antibiotic known for its anti-inflammatory properties, to reduce gliosis in the H-Tx rat model of congenital hydrocephalus. Methods Minocycline (45 mg/kg/day i.p. in 5% sucrose at a concentration of 5-10 mg/ml) was administered to hydrocephalic H-Tx rats from postnatal day 15 to day 21, when ventriculomegaly had reached moderate to severe stages. Treated animals were compared to age-matched non-hydrocephalic and untreated hydrocephalic littermates. The cerebral cortex (both gray matter laminae and white matter) was processed for immunohistochemistry (glial fibrillary acidic protein, GFAP, for astrocytes and ionized calcium binding adaptor molecule, Iba-1, for microglia) and analyzed by qualitative and quantitative light microscopy. Results The mean number of GFAP-immunoreactive astrocytes was significantly higher in untreated hydrocephalic animals compared to both types of controls (p < 0.001). Minocycline treatment of hydrocephalic animals reduced the number of GFAP immunoreactive cells significantly (p < 0.001). Likewise, the mean number of Iba-1 immunoreactive microglia was significantly higher in untreated hydrocephalic animals compared to both types of controls (p < 0.001). Furthermore, no differences in the numbers of GFAP-positive astrocytes or Iba-1-positive microglia were noted between control animals receiving no minocycline and control animals receiving minocycline, suggesting that minocycline does not produce an effect under non-injury conditions. Additionally, in six out of nine regions sampled, hydrocephalic animals that received minocycline injections had significantly thicker cortices when compared to their untreated hydrocephalic littermates. Conclusions Overall, these data suggest that minocycline treatment is effective in reducing the gliosis that accompanies hydrocephalus, and thus may provide an added benefit when used as a supplement to ventricular shunting.

Hydrology of Polk County, Florida  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Local water managers usually rely on information produced at the State and regional scale to make water-resource management decisions. Current assessments of hydrologic and water-quality conditions in Polk County, Florida, commonly end at the boundaries of two water management districts (South Florida Water Management District and the Southwest Florida Water Management District), which makes it difficult for managers to determine conditions throughout the county. The last comprehensive water-resources assessment of Polk County was published almost 40 years ago. To address the need for current countywide information, the U.S. Geological Survey began a 3?-year study in 2002 to update information about hydrologic and water-quality conditions in Polk County and identify changes that have occurred. Ground-water use in Polk County has decreased substantially since 1965. In 1965, total ground-water withdrawals in the county were about 350 million gallons per day. In 2002, withdrawals totaled about 285 million gallons per day, of which nearly 95 percent was from the Floridan aquifer system. Water-conservation practices mainly related to the phosphate-mining industry as well as the decrease in the number of mines in operation in Polk County have reduced total water use by about 65 million gallons per day since 1965. Polk County is underlain by three principal hydrogeologic units. The uppermost water-bearing unit is the surficial aquifer system, which is unconfined and composed primarily of clastic deposits. The surficial aquifer system is underlain by the intermediate confining unit, which grades into the intermediate aquifer system and consists of up to two water-bearing zones composed of interbedded clastic and carbonate rocks. The lowermost hydrogeologic unit is the Floridan aquifer system. The Floridan aquifer system, a thick sequence of permeable limestone and dolostone, consists of the Upper Floridan aquifer, a middle semiconfining unit, a middle confining unit, and the Lower Floridan aquifer. The Upper Floridan aquifer provides most of the water required to meet demand in Polk County. Data from about 300 geophysical and geologic logs were used to construct hydrogeologic maps showing the tops and thicknesses of the aquifers and confining units within Polk County. Thickness of the surficial aquifer system ranges from several feet thick or less in the extreme northwestern part of the county and along parts of the Peace River south of Bartow to more than 200 feet along the southern part of the Lake Wales Ridge in eastern Polk County. Thickness of the intermediate aquifer system/intermediate confining unit is highly variable throughout the county because of past erosional processes and sinkhole formation. Thickness of the unit ranges from less than 25 feet in the extreme northwestern part of the county to more than 300 feet in southwestern Polk County. The altitude of the top of the Upper Floridan aquifer in the county ranges from about 50 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) in the northwestern part to more than 250 feet below NGVD 29 in the southern part. Water levels in the Upper Floridan aquifer fluctuate seasonally, increasing during the wet season (June through September) and decreasing during the rest of the year. Water levels in the Upper Floridan aquifer also can change from year to year, depending on such factors as pumpage and climatic variations. In the southwestern part of the county, fluctuations in water use related to phosphate mining have had a major impact on ground-water levels. Hydrographs of selected wells in southwestern Polk County show a general decline in water levels that ended in the mid-1970s. This water-level decline coincides with an increase in water use associated with phosphate mining. A substantial increase in water levels that began in the mid-1970s coincides with a period of decreasing water use in the county. Despite reductions in water use since 1970, howev

Nitric Oxide-Induced Vasorelaxation in Response to PnTx2-6 Toxin from Phoneutria nigriventer Spider in Rat Cavernosal Tissue  

PubMed Central

Introduction Priapism is one of several symptoms observed in accidental bites by the spider Phoneutria nigriventer. The venom of this spider is comprised of many toxins, and the majority has been shown to affect excitable ion channels, mainly sodium (Na+) channels. It has been demonstrated that PnTx2-6, a peptide extracted from the venom of P. nigriventer, causes erection in anesthetized rats and mice. Aim We investigated the mechanism by which PnTx2-6 evokes relaxation in rat corpus cavernosum. Main Outcome Measures PnTx2-6 toxin potentiates nitric oxide (NO)-dependent cavernosal relaxation. Methods Rat cavernosal strips were incubated with bretylium (3 × 10?5 M) and contracted with phenylephrine (PE; 10?5 M). Relaxation responses were evoked by electrical field stimulation (EFS) or sodium nitroprusside (SNP) before and after 4 minutes of incubation with PnTx2-6 (10?8 M). The effect of PnTx2-6 on relaxation induced by EFS was also tested in the presence of atropine (10?6 M), a muscarinic receptor antagonist, N-type Ca2+ channel blockers (?-conotoxin GVIA, 10?6 M) and sildenafil (3 × 10?8 M). Technetium99m radiolabeled PnTx2-6 subcutaneous injection was administrated in the penis. Results Whereas relaxation induced by SNP was not affected by PnTx2-6, EFS-induced relaxation was significantly potentiated by this toxin as well as PnTx2-6 plus SNP. This potentiating effect was further increased by sildenafil, not altered by atropine, however was completely blocked by the N-type Ca2+ channels. High concentrated levels of radiolabeled PnTx2-6 was specifically found in the cavernosum tissue, suggesting PnTx2-6 is an important toxin responsible for P. nigriventer spider accident-induced priapism. Conclusion We show that PnTx2-6 slows Na+ channels inactivation in nitrergic neurons, allowing Ca2+ influx to facilitate NO/cGMP signalling, which promotes increased NO production. In addition, this relaxation effect is independent of phosphodiesterase enzyme type 5 inhibition. Our data displays PnTx2-6 as possible pharmacological tool to study alternative treatments for erectile dysfunction.

Effects of Tityus serrulatus scorpion venom and its toxin TsTX-V on neurotransmitter uptake in vitro  

SciTech Connect

Scorpion neurotoxins targeting the Na{sub v} channel can be classified into two classes: {alpha}- and {beta}-neurotoxins and are reported as highly active in mammalian brain. In this work, we evaluate the effects of Tityus serrulatus venom (Ts venom) and its {alpha}-neurotoxin TsTX-V on {gamma}-aminobutyric acid (GABA), dopamine (DA) and glutamate (Glu) uptake in isolated rat brain synaptosomes. TsTX-V was isolated from Ts venom by ion exchange chromatography followed by reverse-phase (C18) high-performance liquid chromatography. Neither Ts venom nor TsTX-V was able to affect {sup 3}H-Glu uptake. On the other hand, Ts venom (0.13 {mu}g/mg) significantly inhibited both {sup 3}H-GABA and {sup 3}H-DA uptake ({approx} 50%). TsTX-V showed IC{sub 5} values of 9.37 {mu}M and 22.2 {mu}M for the inhibition of {sup 3}H-GABA and {sup 3}H-DA uptake, respectively. These effects were abolished by pre-treatment with tetrodotoxin (TTX, 1 {mu}M), indicating the involvement of voltage-gated Na{sup +} channels in this process. In the absence of Ca{sup 2+}, and at low Ts venom concentrations, the reduction of {sup 3}H-GABA uptake was not as marked as in the presence of Ca{sup 2+}. TsTX-V did not reduce {sup 3}H-GABA uptake in COS-7 cells expressing the GABA transporters GAT-1 and GAT-3, suggesting that this toxin indirectly reduces the transport. The reduced {sup 3}H-GABA uptake by synaptosomes might be due to rapid cell depolarization as revealed by confocal microscopy of C6 glioma cells. Thus, TsTX-V causes a reduction of {sup 3}H-GABA and {sup 3}H-DA uptake in a Ca{sup 2+}-dependent manner, not directly affecting GABA transporters, but, in consequence of depolarization, involving voltage-gated Na{sup +} channels.

Investigating Tx coils and magnetic field Rx sensor configurations for underwater geo-location  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this work, new configurations of magnetic field transmitter coils (Tx) and receiver sensors (Rx) are studied for underwater (UW) geo-locations. The geo-location system, based on low frequency magnetic fields, uses measured vector magnetic fields at a given set of points in space. It contains an active pulsed direct current transmitter, tri-axial field receivers, and a global positioning system unit (GPS). The GPS is coupled with the EMI system and provides continuous geo-referencing of the UW system's position. UW geolocations are estimated using a) closed form solution, that uses the total vector magnetic field tensor's gradient, and b) nonlinear optimization technique based of the differential evolution (DE) algorithm. In this work we first investigated the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed UW low frequency magnetic field geo-location system. Namely, we present systematic studies on: a) magnetic field transmitter configurations to determine the best compromise between size, shape and practical implementation to achieve maximum transmitter range in the UW environment, b) the placements of tri-axial receiver sensors with respect to the Tx to accurately estimate the UW geo-location from the measured magnetic fields; c) different sources of noise (such as the air-water interface, coupling between targets' EMI responses and the geo-location system's signals, water conductivity), to estimate how these noises influence the system's performance and localization precision. Finally, we assessed the capabilities of the closed-form solution and the DE technique to predict the location of an underwater interrogation system by comparing their corresponding estimated results to the true value. We found that for realistic water conductivities, the frequency should be less than 100 Hz. We showed that when the primary magnetic field is contaminated with random noises due to the presence of underwater metallic targets, water conductivity/frequency changes, and finite size of the transmitter, the performance of the full vector magnetic field tensor gradient approach degrades significantly compared to that of the DE method. In addition, the number of receivers required by the vector magnetic field tensor gradient technique and its sensitivity with respect to the sensor separation prevented us from further considering this technique for UW geo-location, leaving the non-linear approach, that uses only three vector Rx, as our technique of choice for tracking the location of underwater interrogation sensors with centimeter-level accuracy.

Michigan County Histories and Atlases  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

How does one tell the story of a county? It's a tough task, but the staff members at the University of Michigan's Library system worked with a range of partners (including the Michigan Council of Library Directors) to make these county histories widely accessible. On this site, visitors can look over 428 digitized titles that tell the history of the Wolverine State. Interested parties can perform keyword searches across all of these volumes or just browse around at their leisure. First-time visitors might do well to look at the "Account of Kalamazoo County" from 1928 and the 1900 tome "An account of Southwest Michigan and Calhoun County." Additionally, the site contains business directories for a number of communities across the state. These documents are a great way to learn about the retail and other commercial activities going on from the 19th to the early 20th centuries. [KMG

Reservoir fracture mapping using microearthquakes: Austin chalk, Giddings field, TX and 76 field, Clinton Co., KY  

SciTech Connect

Patterns of microearthquakes detected downhole defined fracture orientation and extent in the Austin chalk, Giddings field, TX and the 76 field, Clinton Co., KY. We collected over 480 and 770 microearthquakes during hydraulic stimulation at two sites in the Austin chalk, and over 3200 during primary production in Clinton Co. Data were of high enough quality that 20%, 31% and 53% of the events could be located, respectively. Reflected waves constrained microearthquakes to the stimulated depths at the base of the Austin chalk. In plan view, microearthquakes defined elongate fracture zones extending from the stimulation wells parallel to the regional fracture trend. However, widths of the stimulated zones differed by a factor of five between the two Austin chalk sites, indicating a large difference in the population of ancillary fractures. Post-stimulation production was much higher from the wider zone. At Clinton Co., microearthquakes defined low-angle, reverse-fault fracture zones above and below a producing zone. Associations with depleted production intervals indicated the mapped fractures had been previously drained. Drilling showed that the fractures currently contain brine. The seismic behavior was consistent with poroelastic models that predicted slight increases in compressive stress above and below the drained volume.

Impacts of Hurricane Ike on the beaches of the Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Hurricane Ike caused substantial beach erosion along the coast of the Bolivar Peninsula, TX. Much of the erosion was caused by the offshore (ebb) flow of the ca. 5 m storm surge that formed spatially discrete scour features. Using aerial photography and repeat LiDAR data, we identify five types of scour features and describe the alongshore distribution in four flow environments. Type 1 scours are relatively small and compact features associated mainly with flow off a wide, vegetated (grasses, shrubs, trees) surface across a wide beach. Type 2 scours are large and branching forms associated mainly with flow that was channeled by streets or gaps between structures. Type 3 scours are large and blocky features associated with flow off a marsh surface, across a highway, which removed almost all beach sands from the surface. Type 4 scours are elongated, shore perpendicular channels associated with the same flow characteristics as Type 3 scours. Type 5 scours are elongated, shore-perpendicular features, sometimes branching, associated with flow through gaps in a destroyed shore protection structure. Repeat imagery indicates that many of the features persisted for at least seven months. Recent aerial photography indicates that aspects of some features remained evident more than three years after Ike's landfall.

Radical Budget and Ozone Production in Houston, TX during SHARP 2009  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The chemistry of atmospheric radicals, especially the hydroxyl radical (OH) and hydroperoxyl radical (HO2), together called HOx, is deeply involved in the formation of the secondary pollutants ozone and fine particles. Radical precursors such as nitrous acid (HONO) and formaldehyde (HCHO) significantly affects HOx budget in urban environments like Houston. These chemical processes connect surface emissions, both human and natural, to local and regional pollution, and climate change. Using the data collected during the Study of Houston Atmospheric Radical Precursors (SHARP) in Houston, TX in spring 2009, we test our understanding of photochemistry through the analysis of the radical budget and ozone production. A numerical box model was used to simulate the oxidation processes and observed OH and HO2 during this study. Using the model results, we calculate the radical budget and analyze the sensitivity of ozone production to nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The radical budget shows that the photolysis of HONO and the photolysis of HCHO were significant HOx sources in this urban environment. We also compare the observed OH reactivity and ozone production rate to the model calculations. In general, ozone production rate was VOC limited in the morning and NOx limited in the afternoon. This relationship results from the ratio of VOCs to NOx in Houston. Results from this study provide additional support for regulatory actions to reduce reactive VOCs in Houston in order to reduce ozone and other secondary pollutants.

Phoneutria nigriventer spider toxin Tx2-6 causes priapism and death: a histopathological investigation in mice.  

PubMed

Phoneutria nigriventer spider bite causes priapism, an effect attributed to the peptide toxins Tx2-5 and Tx2-6 and involving nitric oxide. Tx2-6 (MW = 5287) is known to delay the inactivation of Sodium channels in the same fashion as many other venom toxins. In the present study we evaluated the i.p. dose that induces priapism and the other symptoms in mice. Animals killed by the toxin or crude venom (0.85 mg/kg) were autopsied and a pathological study of brain, lung, kidney, liver and heart was undertaken using standard techniques. The same protocol was employed with animals injected with crude venom. Results showed that priapism is the first sign of intoxication, followed by piloerection, abundant salivation and tremors. An i.p. injection of about 0.3 ?g/kg induced only priapism with minimal side-effects. The most remarkable histological finding was a general vascular congestion in all organs studied. Penis showed no necrosis or damage. Lungs showed vascular congestion and alveolar hemorrhage. Heart showed also sub-endothelial hemorrhage. Brain showed only a mild edema and vascular congestion. Results obtained with crude venom closely resemble those of purified toxin. We conclude that Tx2-6 have profound effects on the vascular bed especially in lungs and heart, which may be the cause of death. Interestingly brain tissue was less affected and the observed edema may be attributed to respiratory impairment. To the best of our knowledge this is the first histopathological investigation on this toxin and venom suggesting a possible cause of death. PMID:22750220

VdTX-1, a reversible nicotinic receptor antagonist isolated from venom of the spider Vitalius dubius (Theraphosidae).  

PubMed

Theraphosid spider venoms can block neurotransmission in vertebrate nerve-muscle preparations in vitro, but few of the components involved have been characterized. In this work, we describe the neuromuscular activity of venom from the Brazilian theraphosid Vitalius dubius and report the purification and pharmacological characterization of VdTX-1, a 728 Da toxin that blocks nicotinic receptors. Neuromuscular activity was assayed in chick biventer cervicis preparations and muscle responses to exogenous ACh and KCl were determined before and after incubation with venom or toxin. Changes in membrane resting potential were studied in mouse diaphragm muscle. The toxin was purified by a combination of filtration through Amicon® filters, cation exchange HPLC and RP-HPLC; toxin purity and mass were confirmed by mass spectrometry. Venom caused progressive neuromuscular blockade and muscle contracture; the blockade but not the contracture was reversible by washing. Venom attenuated contractures to exogenous ACh and KCl. Filtration yielded low (LM, <5 kDa) and high (HM, >5 kDa) fractions, with the latter reproducing the contracture seen in venom but with a slight and progressive twitch blockade. The LM fraction caused reversible blockade and attenuated contractures to ACh, but had no effect on contractures to KCl. VdTX-1 (728 Da) purified from the LM fraction was photosensitive and reduced the E(max) to ACh in biventer cervicis muscle without affecting the EC??; VdTX-1 also abolished carbachol-induced depolarizations. V. dubius venom contains at least two components that affect vertebrate neurotransmission. One component, VdTX-1, blocks nicotinic receptors non-competitively to produce reversible blockade without muscle contracture. PMID:23668938

Protocols for Implementing an Escherichia coli Based TX-TL Cell-Free Expression System for Synthetic Biology.  

PubMed

Ideal cell-free expression systems can theoretically emulate an in vivo cellular environment in a controlled in vitro platform.(1) This is useful for expressing proteins and genetic circuits in a controlled manner as well as for providing a prototyping environment for synthetic biology.(2,3) To achieve the latter goal, cell-free expression systems that preserve endogenous Escherichia coli transcription-translation mechanisms are able to more accurately reflect in vivo cellular dynamics than those based on T7 RNA polymerase transcription. We describe the preparation and execution of an efficient endogenous E. coli based transcription-translation (TX-TL) cell-free expression system that can produce equivalent amounts of protein as T7-based systems at a 98% cost reduction to similar commercial systems.(4,5) The preparation of buffers and crude cell extract are described, as well as the execution of a three tube TX-TL reaction. The entire protocol takes five days to prepare and yields enough material for up to 3000 single reactions in one preparation. Once prepared, each reaction takes under 8 hr from setup to data collection and analysis. Mechanisms of regulation and transcription exogenous to E. coli, such as lac/tet repressors and T7 RNA polymerase, can be supplemented.(6) Endogenous properties, such as mRNA and DNA degradation rates, can also be adjusted.(7) The TX-TL cell-free expression system has been demonstrated for large-scale circuit assembly, exploring biological phenomena, and expression of proteins under both T7- and endogenous promoters.(6,8) Accompanying mathematical models are available.(9,10) The resulting system has unique applications in synthetic biology as a prototyping environment, or "TX-TL biomolecular breadboard."

The receptor site of the spider toxin PcTx1 on the proton-gated cation channel ASIC1a  

PubMed Central

Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are excitatory neuronal cation channels, involved in physiopathological processes related to extracellular pH fluctuation such as nociception, ischaemia, perception of sour taste and synaptic transmission. The spider peptide toxin psalmotoxin 1 (PcTx1) has previously been shown to inhibit specifically the proton-gated cation channel ASIC1a. To identify the binding site of PcTx1, we produced an iodinated form of the toxin (125I-PcTx1YN) and developed a set of binding and electrophysiological experiments on several chimeras of ASIC1a and the PcTx1-insensitive channels ASIC1b and ASIC2a. We show that 125I-PcTx1YN binds specifically to ASIC1a at a single site, with an IC50 of 128 pm, distinct from the amiloride blocking site. Results obtained from chimeras indicate that PcTx1 does not bind to ASIC1a transmembrane domains (M1 and M2), involved in formation of the ion pore, but binds principally on both cysteine-rich domains I and II (CRDI and CRDII) of the extracellular loop. The post-M1 and pre-M2 regions, although not involved in the binding site, are crucial for the ability of PcTx1 to inhibit ASIC1a current. The linker domain between CRDI and CRDII is important for their correct spatial positioning to form the PcTx1 binding site. These results will be useful for the future identification or design of new molecules acting on ASICs.

Geothermal development plan: Yuma County  

SciTech Connect

The Yuma County Area Development Plan evaluated the county-wide market potential for utilizing geothermal energy. The study identified four potential geothermal resource areas with temperatures less than 90/sup 0/C (194/sup 0/F), and in addition, two areas are inferred to contain geothermal resources with intermediate (90/sup 0/C to 150/sup 0/C, 194/sup 0/F to 300/sup 0/F) temperature potential. The resource areas are isolated, although one resource area is located near Yuma, Arizona. One resource site is inferred to contain a hot dry rock resource. Anticipated population growth in the county is expected to be 2 percent per year over the next 40 years. The primary employment sector is agriculture, though some light industry is located in the county. Water supplies are found to be adequate to support future growth without advese affect on agriculture. Six firms were found in Yuma County which may be able to utilize geothermal energy for process heat needs. In addition, several agricultural processors were found, concentrated in citrus processing and livestock raising. Geothermal energy utilization projections suggest that by the year 2000, geothermal energy may economically provide the energy equivalent of 53,000 barrels of oil per year to the industrial sector if developed privately. Geothermal utilization projections increase to 132,000 barrels of oil per year by 2000 if a municipal utility developed the resource.

Selective release of ATP from sympathetic nerves of rat vas deferens by the toxin TsTX-I from Brazilian scorpion Tityus serrulatus  

PubMed Central

The effects of the main component of the Tityus serrulatus scorpion venom, toxin TsTX-I, were studied on the contractility and release of neurotransmitters in the rat vas deferens. Since TsTX-I is known to act on sodium channels, we used veratridine, another sodium channel agent, for comparison. Toxin TsTX-I induced concentration-dependent contractions with an EC50 value of 47.8±0.1?nM and a maximum effect of 84.4±10.4% of that for BaCl2. Contractions by TsTX-I were abolished by denervation or tetrodotoxin (0.1??M), showing that the toxin effects depend on the integrity of sympathetic nerve terminals. To check for the presence of a noradrenergic component, experiments were conducted after removal of adrenergic stores in nerve terminals by reserpinization (10?mg?kg?1, 24?h prior to experiments) or blockade of ?1 adrenoceptors by prazosin (30??M), showing that these procedures did not modify the response to TsTX-I, and therefore that adrenoceptors were not involved in contractions. To check for the presence of a purinergic component, experiments were carried out after blockade of P2X receptors by suramin (0.1?mM) or desensitization by ?,?-methylene-ATP (30??M). These agents greatly abolished the contractile response to TsTX-I (about 83% by desensitization and 96% by suramin), showing the involvement of purinergic receptors. The release of noradrenaline and purinergic agents (ATP, ADP, AMP and adenosine) was detected by HPLC. Together, the total release of purines in the presence of TsTX-I was about 42 times higher than in the control group. In contrast, TsTX-I did not modify the overflow of noradrenaline, showing that the release was selective for purines. The release of purinergic agents was reduced by the N-type calcium channel blocker ?-conotoxin GVIA (1??M) and by the P/Q-type blocker ?-conotoxin MVIIC (1??M), showing that the effects of TsTX-I are calcium-dependent. The results show that TsTX-I produced a selective release of purines from postganglionic sympathetic nerves in the rat vas deferens.

Geothermal development plan: Maricopa county  

SciTech Connect

Maricopa county is the area of Arizona receiving top priority since it contains over half of the state's population. The county is located entirely within the Basin and Range physiographic region in which geothermal resources are known to occur. Several approaches were taken to match potential users to geothermal resources. One approach involved matching some of the largest facilities in the county to nearby geothermal resources. Other approaches involved identifying industrial processes whose heat requirements are less than the average assessed geothermal reservoir temperature of 110/sup 0/C (230/sup 0/F). Since many of the industries are located on or near geothermal resources, geothermal energy potentially could be adapted to many industrial processes.

Increased cavernosal relaxation by Phoneutria nigriventer toxin, PnTx2-6, via activation at NO/cGMP signaling  

PubMed Central

Erectile dysfunction mechanisms in diabetic patients are multifactorial and often lead to resistance to current therapy. Animal toxins have been used as pharmacological tools to study penile erection. Human accidents involving the venom of Phoneutria nigriventer spider are characterized by priapism. We hypothesize that PnTx2-6 potentiates cavernosal relaxation in diabetic mice by increasing cGMP. This effect is nNOS dependent. Cavernosal strips were contracted with phenylephrine (10?5 M) and relaxed by electrical field stimulation (EFS, 20V, 1–32 Hz) in the presence or absence of PnTx2-6 (10?8 M).Cavernosal strips from nNOS and eNOS knocaut (KO) mice, besides nNOS inhibitor (10?5M), were used to evaluate the role of this enzyme in the potentiation effect evoked by PnTx2-6. Tissue cGMP levels were determined after stimulation with PnTx2-6 in presence or absence of L-NAME (10?4M) and ?-conotoxin GVIA (10?6M), an N-type calcium channel inhibitor. Results showed PnTx2-6 enhanced cavernosal relaxation in diabetic mice (65%) and eNOS KO mice, but not in nNOS KO mice. The toxin effect in the cavernosal relaxation was abolished by nNOS inhibitor. cGMP levels are increased by PnTx2-6, however L-NAME abolished this enhancement as well as ?-conotoxin GVIA. We conclude PnTx2-6 facilitates penile relaxation in diabetic mice through a mechanism dependent on nNOS, probably via increasing NO/cGMP production.

Structural and functional consequences of the presence of a fourth disulfide bridge in the scorpion short toxins: solution structure of the potassium channel inhibitor HsTX1.  

PubMed Central

We have determined the three-dimensional structure of the potassium channel inhibitor HsTX1, using nuclear magnetic resonance and molecular modeling. This protein belongs to the scorpion short toxin family, which essentially contains potassium channel blockers of 29 to 39 amino acids and three disulfide bridges. It is highly active on voltage-gated Kv1.3 potassium channels. Furthermore, it has the particularity to possess a fourth disulfide bridge. We show that HsTX1 has a fold similar to that of the three-disulfide-bridged toxins and conserves the hydrophobic core found in the scorpion short toxins. Thus, the fourth bridge has no influence on the global conformation of HsTX1. Most residues spatially analogous to those interacting with voltage-gated potassium channels in the three-disulfide-bridged toxins are conserved in HsTX1. Thus, we propose that Tyr21, Lys23, Met25, and Asn26 are involved in the biological activity of HsTX1. As an additional positively charged residue is always spatially close to the aromatic residue in toxins blocking the voltage-gated potassium channels, and as previous mutagenesis experiments have shown the critical role played by the C-terminus in HsTX1, we suggest that Arg33 is also important for the activity of the four disulfide-bridged toxin. Docking calculations confirm that, if Lys23 and Met25 interact with the GYGDMH motif of Kv1.3, Arg33 can contact Asp386 and, thus, play the role of the additional positively charged residue of the toxin functional site. This original configuration of the binding site of HsTX1 for Kv1.3, if confirmed experimentally, offers new structural possibilities for the construction of a molecule blocking the voltage-gated potassium channels.

Neuromuscular activity of BaTX, a presynaptic basic PLA2 isolated from Bothrops alternatus snake venom.  

PubMed

We have previously isolated a Lys49 phospholipase A(2) homolog (BaTX) from Bothrops alternatus snake venom using a combination of molecular exclusion chromatography and reverse phase HPLC and shown its ability to cause neuromuscular blockade. In this work, we describe a one-step procedure for the purification of this toxin and provide further details of its neuromuscular activity. The toxin was purified by reverse phase HPLC and its purity and molecular mass were confirmed by SDS-PAGE, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, amino acid analysis and N-terminal sequencing. BaTX (0.007-1.4 microM) produced time-dependent, irreversible neuromuscular blockade in isolated mouse phrenic nerve-diaphragm and chick biventer cervicis preparations (time to 50% blockade with 0.35 microM toxin: 58+/-4 and 24+/-1 min, respectively; n=3-8; mean+/-S.E.) without significantly affecting the response to direct muscle stimulation. In chick preparations, contractures to exogenous acetylcholine (55 and 110 microM) or KCl (13.4 mM) were unaltered after complete blockade by all toxin concentrations. These results, which strongly suggested a presynaptic mechanism of action for this toxin, were reinforced by (1) the inability of BaTX to interfere with the carbachol-induced depolarization of the resting membrane, (2) a significant decrease in the frequency and amplitude of miniature end-plate potentials, and (3) a significant reduction (59+/-4%, n=12) in the quantal content of the end-plate potentials after a 60 min incubation with the toxin (1.4 microM). In addition, a decrease in the organ bath temperature from 37 degrees C to 24 degrees C and/or the replacement of calcium with strontium prevented the neuromuscular blockade, indicating a temperature-dependent effect possibly mediated by enzymatic activity.

Vertical profiles of nitrous acid in the nocturnal urban atmosphere of Houston, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Nitrous acid (HONO) often plays an important role in tropospheric photochemistry as a major precursor of the hydroxyl radical (OH) in early morning hours and potentially during the day. However, the processes leading to formation of HONO and its vertical distribution at night, which can have a considerable impact on daytime ozone formation, are currently poorly characterized by observations and models. Long-path differential optical absorption spectroscopy (LP-DOAS) measurements of HONO during the 2006 TexAQS II Radical and Aerosol Measurement Project (TRAMP), near downtown Houston, TX, show nocturnal vertical profiles of HONO, with mixing ratios of up to 2.2 ppb near the surface and below 100 ppt aloft. Three nighttime periods of HONO, NO2 and O3 observations during TRAMP were used to perform model simulations of vertical mixing ratio profiles. By adjusting vertical mixing and NOx emissions the modeled NO2 and O3 mixing ratios showed very good agreement with the observations. Using a simple conversion of NO2 to HONO on the ground, direct HONO emissions, as well as HONO loss at the ground and on aerosol, the observed HONO profiles were reproduced well by the model. The unobserved increase of HONO to NO2 ratio (HONO/NO2) with altitude that was simulated by the initial model runs was found to be due to HONO uptake being too small on aerosol and too large on the ground. Refined model runs, with adjusted HONO uptake coefficients, showed much better agreement of HONO and HONO/NO2 for two typical nights, except during morning rush hour, when other HONO formation pathways are most likely active. One of the nights analyzed showed increase of HONO mixing ratios together with decreasing NO2 mixing ratios that the model was unable to reproduce, most likely due to the impact of weak precipitation during this night. HONO formation and removal rates averaged over the lowest 300 m of the atmosphere showed that NO2 to HONO conversion on the ground was the dominant source of HONO, followed by traffic emission. Aerosol did not play an important role in HONO formation. Although ground deposition was also a major removal pathway of HONO, net HONO production at the ground was the main source of HONO in our model studies. Sensitivity studies showed that in the stable NBL, net HONO production at the ground tends to increase with faster vertical mixing and stronger emission. Vertical transport was found to be the dominant source of HONO aloft.

Complete genome sequence of Enterococcus faecium strain TX16 and comparative genomic analysis of Enterococcus faecium genomes  

PubMed Central

Background Enterococci are among the leading causes of hospital-acquired infections in the United States and Europe, with Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium being the two most common species isolated from enterococcal infections. In the last decade, the proportion of enterococcal infections caused by E. faecium has steadily increased compared to other Enterococcus species. Although the underlying mechanism for the gradual replacement of E. faecalis by E. faecium in the hospital environment is not yet understood, many studies using genotyping and phylogenetic analysis have shown the emergence of a globally dispersed polyclonal subcluster of E. faecium strains in clinical environments. Systematic study of the molecular epidemiology and pathogenesis of E. faecium has been hindered by the lack of closed, complete E. faecium genomes that can be used as references. Results In this study, we report the complete genome sequence of the E. faecium strain TX16, also known as DO, which belongs to multilocus sequence type (ST) 18, and was the first E. faecium strain ever sequenced. Whole genome comparison of the TX16 genome with 21 E. faecium draft genomes confirmed that most clinical, outbreak, and hospital-associated (HA) strains (including STs 16, 17, 18, and 78), in addition to strains of non-hospital origin, group in the same clade (referred to as the HA clade) and are evolutionally considerably more closely related to each other by phylogenetic and gene content similarity analyses than to isolates in the community-associated (CA) clade with approximately a 3–4% average nucleotide sequence difference between the two clades at the core genome level. Our study also revealed that many genomic loci in the TX16 genome are unique to the HA clade. 380 ORFs in TX16 are HA-clade specific and antibiotic resistance genes are enriched in HA-clade strains. Mobile elements such as IS16 and transposons were also found almost exclusively in HA strains, as previously reported. Conclusions Our findings along with other studies show that HA clonal lineages harbor specific genetic elements as well as sequence differences in the core genome which may confer selection advantages over the more heterogeneous CA E. faecium isolates. Which of these differences are important for the success of specific E. faecium lineages in the hospital environment remain(s) to be determined.

Hydrogeology of Webb County, Texas  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Introduction: Webb County, in semiarid South Texas on the U.S.-Mexico border, is a region confronted by increasing stresses on natural resources. Laredo (fig. 1), the largest city in Webb County (population 193,000 in 2000), was one of the 10 fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country during 1990-2000 (Perry and Mackun, 2001). Commercial and industrial activities have expanded throughout the region to support the maquiladora industry (manufacturing plants in Mexico) along the border and other growth as a result of the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The Rio Grande currently (2002) is the primary source of public water supply for Laredo and other cities along the border in Webb County (fig. 1). Other cities, such as Bruni and Mirando City in the southeastern part of the county, rely on ground-water supplies to meet municipal demands. Increased water demand associated with development and population growth in the region has increased the need for the City of Laredo and Webb County to evaluate alternative water sources to meet future demand. Possible options include (1) supplementing the surface-water supply with ground water, and (2) applying artificial storage and recovery (ASR) technology to recharge local aquifers. These options raise issues regarding the hydraulic capability of the aquifers to store economically substantial quantities of water, current or potential uses of the resource, and possible effects on the quality of water resulting from mixing ground water with alternative source waters. To address some of these issues, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the City of Laredo, began a study in 1996 to assess the ground-water resources of Webb County. A hydrogeologic study was conducted to review and analyze available information on the hydrogeologic units (aquifers and confining units) in Webb County, to locate available wells in the region with water-level and water-quality information from the aquifers, and to analyze the hydraulic properties of the aquifers. The purpose of this report is to document the findings of the study. The information is organized by hydrogeologic unit and presented on this and six other sheets.

The t(X;6) in subungual exostosis results in transcriptional deregulation of the gene for insulin receptor substrate 4.  

PubMed

Subungual exostosis is a benign bone- and cartilage-forming tumor known to harbor a pathognomonic t(X;6)(q22;q13-14). Using global gene expression analysis and quantitative real-time PCR, we could show that this translocation results in increased expression of the IRS4 gene, presumably due to disruption and/or exchange of regulatory sequences with the translocation partner, the COL12A1 gene. A corresponding deregulation at the protein level could be demonstrated in primary cell cultures using a combination of fluorescence in situ hybridization and immunostaining. As the t(X;6) usually is the sole cytogenetic aberration in subungual exostosis, the deregulated expression of IRS4 is likely to be pathogenetically essential. The exact role of IRS4 is still poorly investigated, but IRS proteins are known to act as mediators of signaling from receptors, such as the insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1 receptors, and thus have an important effect on cell growth and survival.

[A case of male infertility with a reciprocal translocation t(X;14)(p11.4;p12)].  

PubMed

A chromosomal abnormality was found in about 3.6-7.6% of males presenting with azoospermia or oligospermia. Translocations between X chromosome and autosomes are rarely seen genetic disorders that cause male infertility. We described here a 26-year-old infertile male with t(X;14)(p11.4; p12). He showed a normal phenotype without any familial history of congenital abnormalities. The cytogenetic analysis of the proband revealed an X-autosomal translocation, 46,Y,t(X;14)(p11.4;p12), which was inherited from his mother. The testis biopsies indicated the arrest of spermatogenesis. There were no microdeletions of the azoospermia factor a (AZFa), AZFb and AZFc regions in the Y chromosome shown by PCR with 11 sequence-tagged site (STS) markers. According to the literature, male carriers of an X-autosome translocation are invariably sterile, regardless of the position of the break-point in the X chromosome. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of azoospermia with t(X;14)(p11.4;p12) in Korea. PMID:18094566

Simulation of the Interaction Between ScyTx and Small Conductance Calcium-Activated Potassium Channel by Docking and MM-PBSA  

PubMed Central

Computational methods are employed to simulate interaction of scorpion toxin ScyTx in complex with the small conductance calcium-activated potassium channel rsk2. All of available 25 structures of ScyTx in the Protein Data Bank determined by NMR were considered for improving performance of rigid protein docking of ZDOCK. Four main binding modes were found among a large number of predicted complexes by using clustering analysis, screening with expert knowledge, energy minimization, and molecular dynamics simulations. The quality and validity of the resulting complexes were further evaluated by molecular dynamics simulations with the generalized Born solvation model and by calculation of relative binding free energies with the molecular mechanics Poisson-Boltzmann surface area (MM-PBSA) in the AMBER 7 suit of programs. The complex formed by the 22nd structure of the ScyTx and rsk2 channel was identified as the most favorable complex by using a combination of computational methods, which contain further introduction of flexibility without restraining residue side chain. From the resulted spatial structure of the ScyTx and rsk2 channel, ScyTx associates the mouth of the rsk2 channel with ?-helix rather than ?-sheet. Structural analysis first revealed that Arg13 played a novel and vital role of blocking the pore of the rsk2 channel, whose role is remarkably different from that of highly homologous scorpion toxin P05. Between the interfaces in the ScyTx-rsk2 complex, strong electrostatic interaction and hydrogen bonds exist between Arg13 of ScyTx and Gly-Tyr-Gly-Asp sequential residues located in the four symmetrical chains of the pore region. Simultaneously, five hydrogen bonds between Arg6 of ScyTx and Asp341(C), Val366(C), and Pro367(C), and electrostatic interaction between Arg6 of ScyTx and Asp364(B) and Asp341(C) are also found by structural analysis. In addition, His31 located at the C-terminal of ScyTx is surrounded by Val342(A), Asp364(A), Met365(A), Pro367(B), and Asn366(B) within a contact distance of 4.0 Å. These simulation results are in good agreement with experimental data and can effectively explain the binding phenomena between ScyTx and the potassium channel at the level of molecular spatial structure. The consistency between results of molecular modeling and experimental data strongly suggests that our spatial structure model of the ScyTx-rsk2 complex is reasonable. Therefore, molecular docking combined with molecular dynamics simulations followed by molecular mechanics Poisson-Boltzmann surface area analysis is an attractive approach for modeling scorpion toxin-potassium channel complexes a priori for further biological studies.

2004 Initial Assessments for the T and TX TY Tank Farm Field Investigation Report (FIR): Numerical Simulations  

SciTech Connect

In support of CH2M HILL Hanford Group, Inc.’s (CHG) preparation of a Field Investigative Report (FIR) for the Hanford Site Single-Shell Tank Waste Management Area (WMA) T and TX-TY, a suite of numerical simulations of flow and solute transport was executed using the STOMP code to predict the performance of surface barriers for reducing long-term risks from potential groundwater contamination at the T and TX-TY WMA. The scope and parametric data for these simulations were defined by a modeling data package provided by CHG. This report documents the simulation involving 2-D cross sections through the T Tank and the TX-TY Tank Farm. Eight cases were carried out for the cross sections to simulate the effects of interim barrier, water line leak, inventory distribution, and surface recharge on water flow and the transport of long-lived radionuclides (i.e., technecium-99 and uranium) and chemicals (i.e., nitrate and chromium For simulations with barriers, it is assumed that an interim barrier is in place by the year 2010. It was also assumed that, for all simulations, as part of tank farm closure, a closure barrier was in place by the year 2040. The modeling considers the estimated inventories of contaminants within the vadose zone and calculates the associated risk. It assumes that no tanks will leak in the future. Initial conditions for contaminant concentration are provided as part of inventory estimates for uranium, technetium-99, nitrate, and chromium. For moisture flow modeling, Neumann boundary conditions are prescribed at the surface with the flux equal to the recharge rate estimate. For transport modeling, a zero flux boundary is prescribed at the surface for uranium, technetium-99, nitrate, and chromium. The western and eastern boundaries are assigned no-flux boundaries for both flow and transport. The water table boundary is prescribed by water table elevations and the unconfined aquifer hydraulic gradient. No-flux boundaries are used for the lower boundary. Numerical results were obtained for compliance at the WMA boundary, 200 Areas boundary, exclusion boundary beyond the 200 Areas, and the Columbia River (DOE-RL 2000). Streamtube/analytical models were used to route computed contaminant concentrations at the water table to the downstream compliance points. When the interim barrier was applied at 2010, the soil was desaturated gradually. The difference in saturation of the soil with and without the interim barrier was the largest at 2040, the time the closure barrier was applied. After this, the difference in saturation in the two cases became smaller with time. Generally, the solutes broke though faster if there was a water line leak. A relative small five-day leak (Case 4) had little effect on the peak concentration, while a large 20-yr leak (Case 3) increased the peak concentration significantly and reduced the solute travel in the vadose zone. The distribution of the inventory, either uniform or nonuniform, has little effect on peak arrival time; the peak concentrations of the conservative solutes varied by -6.9 to 0.2% for the T tank farm and by 11 to 49.4% for the TX tank farm. The reduction of the meteoric recharge before the barrier was applied led to less soil saturation, as expected, and thus longer solute travel time in the vadose zone and smaller peak fence line concentration. The effect on soil saturation lasted for about another 50 years after the barrier was applied at 2050. However, the reduced recharge rate affected the breakthough curve till the end of the simulation. The fence line concentrations at the year 3000 were always higher for cases with reduced natural recharge than for those of the base case, which indicates that the fundamental impact of the reduced natural recharge is a smoothing of the breakthrough concentrations at the compliance points.

Use of TX100-dangled epoxy as a reactive noncovalent dispersant of vapor-grown carbon nanofibers in an aqueous solution.  

PubMed

The dispersion of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into individual particles or small bundles has remained a vexing problem that limits the use of the excellent properties of CNTs in composite applications. Noncovalent functionalization is an attractive option for changing the interfacial properties of nanotubes because it does not destroy the nanotube grapheme structure. In this study, a new reactive copolymer, epoxy-toluene diisocyanate-Triton X-100 (EP-TDI-TX100) was successfully synthesized, which is shown to be highly effective in dispersing vapor-grown carbon nanofibers (VGCNFs) into individual or small bundles, as evidenced by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-vis absorption spectra. The strong ?-? interaction between VGCNFs and EP-TDI-TX100 was revealed by Raman spectra and the covalent reaction between curing agent was confirmed via Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. For an effective dispersion, the optimum weight ratio of EP-TDI-TX100 to VGCNFs is 2:1. The maximum VGCNF concentration that can be homogeneously dispersed in an aqueous solution is approximately 0.64 mg/mL. The EP-TDI-TX100 molecules are adsorbed on the VGCNF surface and prevent reaggregation of VGCNFs, so that a colloidal stability of VGCNF dispersion can be maintained for 6 months. PMID:23116860

Pharmacological study of a new Asp49 phospholipase A(2) (Bbil-TX) isolated from Bothriopsis bilineata smargadina (forest viper) venom in vertebrate neuromuscular preparations.  

PubMed

The neuromuscular activity of Bbil-TX, a PLA2 with catalytic activity isolated from Bothriopsis bilineata smargadina venom, was examined in chick biventer cervicis (BC) and mouse phrenic nerve-diaphragm (PND) preparations. In BC preparations, Bbil-TX (0.5-10 ?g/ml) caused time- and concentration-dependent blockade that was not reversed by washing; the times for 50% blockade were 87 ± 7, 41 ± 7 and 19 ± 2 min (mean ± SEM; n = 4-6) for 1, 5 and 10 ?g/ml, respectively. Muscle contractures to exogenous ACh and KCl were unaffected. The toxin (10 ?g/ml) also did not affect the twitch-tension of directly-stimulated, curarized (10 ?g/ml) BC preparations. However, Bbil-TX (10 ?g/ml) produced mild morphological alterations (edematous and/or hyperchromic fibers) in BC; there was also a progressive release of CK (from 116 ± 17 IU/ml (basal) to 710 ± 91 IU/ml after 45 min). Bbil-TX (5 ?g/ml)-induced blockade was markedly inhibited at 22-24 °C and pretreatment with p-bromophenacyl bromide (p-BPB) abolished the neuromuscular blockade. Bbil-TX (3-30 ?g/ml, n = 4-6) caused partial time- and concentration-dependent blockade in PND preparations (52 ± 2% at the highest concentration). Bbil-TX (30 ?g/ml) also markedly reduced the MEPPs frequency [from 26 ± 2.5 (basal) to 10 ± 1 after 60 min; n = 5; p < 0.05] and the quantal content [from 94 ± 14 (basal) to 24 ± 3 after 60 min; n = 5; p < 0.05] of PND preparations, but caused only minor depolarization of the membrane resting potential [from -80 ± 1 mV (basal) to -66 ± 2 mV after 120 min; n = 5; p < 0.05], with no significant change in the depolarizing response to exogenous carbachol. These results show that Bbil-TX is a presynaptic PLA2 that contributes to the neuromuscular blockade caused by B. b. smargadina venom. PMID:23541434

Results of Phase I groundwater quality assessment for single-shell tank waste management areas T and TX-TY at the Hanford Site  

SciTech Connect

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) conducted a Phase I, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) groundwater quality assessment for the Richland Field Office of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE-RL) under the requirements of the Federal Facility Compliance Agreement. The purpose of the investigation was to determine if the Single-Shell Tank Waste Management Areas (WMAs) T and TX-TY have impacted groundwater quality. Waste Management Areas T and TX-TY, located in the northern part of the 200 West Area of the Hanford Site, contain the 241-T, 241-TX, and 241-TY tank farms and ancillary waste systems. These two units are regulated under RCRA interim-status regulations (under 40 CFR 265.93) and were placed in assessment groundwater monitoring because of elevated specific conductance in downgradient wells. Anomalous concentrations of technetium-99, chromium, nitrate, iodine-129, and cobalt-60 also were observed in some downgradient wells. Phase I assessment, allowed under 40 CFR 265, provides the owner-operator of a facility with the opportunity to show that the observed contamination has a source other than the regulated unit. For this Phase I assessment, PNNL evaluated available information on groundwater chemistry and past waste management practices in the vicinity of WMAs T and TX-TY. Background contaminant concentrations in the vicinity of WMAs T and TX-TY are the result of several overlapping contaminant plumes resulting from past-practice waste disposal operations. This background has been used as baseline for determining potential WMA impacts on groundwater.

Groundwater management and protection Madison County, Alabama  

SciTech Connect

Groundwater is extremely important to Madison County as it provides nearly three quarters of the county's drinking water. In recent years, Madison County has increasingly recognized the need to protect its groundwater resource. A supply of usable groundwater is one element of a high quality environment, which can help spur economic development and provide for the needs of a growing population. Without planning protection and understanding of possible consequences, however, economic development and population pressures can cause a gradual degradation of groundwater. In April 1987, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) convened a local groundwater steering group in Madison County. At the first meeting the ground agreed upon these goals: (1) to seek incorporate groundwater protection into the planning and development process for Madison County, (2) to support efforts by Madison County to obtain authority to adopt zoning ordinances and subdivision regulations, and (3) to develop a groundwater management plan for the county. This report provides essential information needed in developing a plan and is based on the following assumptions: the citizens of Madison County value the environment in which they live and wish to protect it from pollution; continued economic development is necessary for a healthy local economy; and a healthy economy can be sustained and nurtured, without degradation of the groundwater resource, through countywide planning, education, and participation.

Environmental assessment: Deaf Smith County site, Texas  

SciTech Connect

In February 1983, the US Department of Energy (DOE) identified a location in Deaf Smith County, Texas, as one of nine potentially acceptable sites for a mined geologic repository for spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. To determine their suitability, the Deaf Smith County site and the eight other potentially sites have been evaluated in accordance with the DOE's General Guidelines for the Recommendation of Sites for the Nuclear Waste Repositories. The Deaf Smith County site is in the Permian Basin, which is one of five distinct geohydrologic settings considered for the first repository. On the basis of the evaluations reported in this EA, the DOE has found that the Deaf Smith County site is not disqualified under the guidelines. On the basis of these findings, the DOE is nominating the Deaf Smith County site as one of the five sites suitable for characterization. 591 refs., 147 figs., 173 tabs.

Comparison of spatial and temporal variations in p-PAH, BC, and p-PAH/BC ratio in six US counties  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

An ambient air monitoring campaign was performed in six counties (Sacramento, CA; Maricopa, AZ; Anoka, MN; Jefferson, KY; Harris, TX; and Pinellas, FL) between January 2008 and September 2009. The purpose of this paper is to compare the spatial and temporal variability of black carbon (BC) and particle-bound polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (p-PAHs), across these counties using continuous monitoring instruments - an Aethalometer and a Photoelectric Aerosol Sensor reporting in units of ?g m -3 and fA, respectively. We explored temporal trends in these measurements to assess the potential impact of local combustion sources on air quality. Median BC concentrations ranged from 0.13 to 0.53 ?g m -3; and median p-PAH values ranged from 0.31 to 4.18 fA. Hourly BC and p-PAH were elevated during morning rush hour and rapidly decreased later in the morning. Nighttime increases in BC and p-PAH were also observed in most counties. Diurnal patterns of BC and p-PAH were different on weekdays compared to weekends. Profiles of hourly ratios of p-PAH/BC in combination with meteorological data can provide insight into potential sources across the sites. Hourly ratios of p-PAH/BC which peaked during early morning and late afternoon hours suggest a dominating contribution of motor vehicle sources in four of the six counties. In two counties, hourly ratios remained elevated for several hours after rush hour and did not show a distinctive peak suggesting additional sources of BC and p-PAH. Such profiles were seen in both Jefferson KY and Harris TX, and may be attributed to coal combustion, petro-chemical industry and shipping activities, respectively. These results suggest that measurements of BC and p-PAH, combined with meteorological information and emission data are potentially useful to identify combustion sources impacting air quality. More research combining BC and p-PAH measurements with detailed source apportionment data is needed to more fully evaluate the utility of these real-time measures.

Costilla County Biodiesel Pilot Project  

SciTech Connect

The Costilla County Biodiesel Pilot Project has demonstrated the compatibility of biodiesel technology and economics on a local scale. The project has been committed to making homegrown biodiesel a viable form of community economic development. The project has benefited by reducing risks by building the facility gradually and avoiding large initial outlays of money for facilities and technologies. A primary advantage of this type of community-scale biodiesel production is that it allows for a relatively independent, local solution to fuel production. Successfully using locally sourced feedstocks and putting the fuel into local use emphasizes the feasibility of different business models under the biodiesel tent and that there is more than just a one size fits all template for successful biodiesel production.

Nolley v. County of Erie.  

PubMed

The U.S. District Court, Western District of New York, held that the Erie County Holding Center (ECHC) had violated an HIV-positive inmate's privacy rights under the U.S. Constitution and the New York Public Health Law by placing red stickers on the inmate's paperwork and belongings, and by segregating her from the general inmate population. The court reasoned that, pursuant to the federal Centers for Disease Control's recommendation that corrections staff take HIV precautions with all inmates, the ECHC's treatment constituted an unjustifiable isolation based solely on her HIV status. The court also held that the ECHC further violated the inmate's constitutional rights by denying her access to the law library and to religious services. Although the court found the inmate's incarceration conditions "deplorable," the conditions did not constitute "cruel and unusual punishment." The court also found no federal Rehabilitation Act violation because the ECHC did not receive federal financial assistance. PMID:11648225

Hydrologic conditions: Dade County, Florida  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Thin layers of dense limestone of low permeability that occur near the top of the Biscayne aquifer in the vicinity of the north end of Levee 30 in Dade County, Florida are of hydrologic importance because they retard the downward infiltration of ponded water in Conservation Area No. 3. This retarding effect frequently results in high head differentials across the levee. Tests made in a small area adjacent to Levee 30 indicate that the coefficient of transmissibility of the aquifer is 3,600,000 gpd (gallons per day) per foot, and the coefficient of vertical permeability of the dense limestones is 13 gpd per square foot. If ground-water flow beneath the levee is laminar, the total inflow to the Levee 30 Canal from Conservation Area No. 3 will be about 350 mgd (million gallons per day), or 540 cfs (cubic feet per second), per mile length of levee when the head difference across the levee is 10 feet.

1918 Influenza: A Winnebago County, Wisconsin Perspective  

PubMed Central

The population of Winnebago County in 1918 was approximately 62,000 residents. It consisted of towns supporting diverse manufacturers surrounded by farming country. For this study, records were revisited, and 1918 to 1920 influenza survivors were interviewed. A pharmacological investigation encompassing the various influenza treatments used in Wisconsin from 1918 to 1920 was documented. In 1918, over 180 individuals perished from influenza, and over 2000 cases were reported in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. Influenza returned in 1920, which some researchers refer to as the “fourth wave,” claiming nearly 50 lives in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. This study also documents the 1920 influenza wave.

SciTech Connect

This report describes the results of vapor samples taken from the headspace of waste storage tank 241-TX-111 (Tank TX-111) at the Hanford Site in Washington State. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) contracted with Westinghouse Hanford Company (WHC) to provide sampling devices and analyze samples for inorganic and organic analytes collected from the tank headspace and ambient air near the tank. The analytical work was performed by the PNNL Vapor Analytical Laboratory (VAL) by the Tank Vapor Characterization Project. Work performed was based on a sample and analysis plan (SAP) prepared by WHC. The SAP provided job-specific instructions for samples, analyses, and reporting. The SAP for this sample job was {open_quotes}Vapor Sampling and Analysis Plan{close_quotes}, and the sample job was designated S5069. Samples were collected by WHC on October 12, 1995, using the Vapor Sampling System (VSS), a truck-based sampling method using a heated probe inserted into the tank headspace.

Ultrasound enhanced gradient elution of super heavy oil from weathered soils using TX100/SBDS mixed salt micellar solutions.  

PubMed

An ultrasound-enhanced five-stage gradient elution system employing mixed solutions of Triton X-100 (TX100), sodium dodecyl benzenesulfonate (SBDS), and salt (abbr. MSTS) was used to elute super heavy oil from weathered soils. The use of ultrasound increased the elution of super heavy oil by 13-14% and improved first-stage dissolution and dispersion by 62%. However, the amount of super heavy oil dissolved or dispersed in the second through fifth elution stages was unchanged by the application of ultrasound. Saturated hydrocarbons were more quickly eluted in the first two stages. During the final three stages the order of elution for the four identified super heavy oil fractions was: asphaltenes>saturated hydrocarbons>aromatics>resins. A large number of elution stages aided in eluting markers containing a large number of C atoms in the absence of ultrasound. The elution at each stage was higher when ultrasound was employed, and ultrasound-enhanced elution is a potentially useful method for removing super heavy oil from weathered soils. PMID:20869899

Use of Zenith TX2 endografts in endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair for large-diameter aortic necks.  

PubMed

The purpose of this case report is to describe the use of thoracic endografts in endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with large-diameter aortic necks. We present four patients who underwent elective repair of AAAs. Preoperative imaging demonstrated all to have large aortic necks (35-37 mm) precluding treatment with standard abdominal aortic devices. All underwent endovascular treatment, which included the use of a Zenith TX2 endograft (Cook Medical Incorporated, Bloomington, IN, USA) as a proximal aortic cuff. There was 100% technical success. One patient developed gastrointestinal bleeding and a myocardial infarction. All were subsequently discharged home. On follow-up, there was one aneurysm-related death at three months. The remaining three patients are alive at a mean of 25.7 months after their operation. In conclusion, large proximal aortic necks preclude endovascular treatment with standard abdominal endograft components. The use of a thoracic endograft as a proximal aortic cuff is a feasible technique for patients unable to tolerate open aortic reconstruction. PMID:22442381

Structural and phylogenetic studies with MjTX-I reveal a multi-oligomeric toxin--a novel feature in Lys49-PLA2s protein class.  

PubMed

The mortality caused by snakebites is more damaging than many tropical diseases, such as dengue haemorrhagic fever, cholera, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis and Chagas disease. For this reason, snakebite envenoming adversely affects health services of tropical and subtropical countries and is recognized as a neglected disease by the World Health Organization. One of the main components of snake venoms is the Lys49-phospholipases A2, which is catalytically inactive but possesses other toxic and pharmacological activities. Preliminary studies with MjTX-I from Bothrops moojeni snake venom revealed intriguing new structural and functional characteristics compared to other bothropic Lys49-PLA2s. We present in this article a comprehensive study with MjTX-I using several techniques, including crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering, analytical size-exclusion chromatography, dynamic light scattering, myographic studies, bioinformatics and molecular phylogenetic analyses.Based in all these experiments we demonstrated that MjTX-I is probably a unique Lys49-PLA2, which may adopt different oligomeric forms depending on the physical-chemical environment. Furthermore, we showed that its myotoxic activity is dramatically low compared to other Lys49-PLA2s, probably due to the novel oligomeric conformations and important mutations in the C-terminal region of the protein. The phylogenetic analysis also showed that this toxin is clearly distinct from other bothropic Lys49-PLA2s, in conformity with the peculiar oligomeric characteristics of MjTX-I and possible emergence of new functionalities in response to environmental changes and adaptation to new preys.

Regional brain c-fos activation associated with penile erection and other symptoms induced by the spider toxin Tx2-6.  

PubMed

Brain areas expressing c-fos messenger RNA were mapped by quantitative in situ hybridization after 1-2 h of intoxication with 10 ?g/kg Tx2-6, a toxin obtained from the venom of the spider Phoneutria nigriventer. Relative to saline-treated controls, brains from toxin-treated animals showed pronounced c-fos activation in many brain areas, including the supraoptic nucleus, the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus, the motor nucleus of the vagus, area postrema, paraventricular and paratenial nuclei of the thalamus, locus coeruleus, central amydaloid nucleus and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis. The paraventricular hypothalamus and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis have been implicated in erectile function in other studies. A possible role for central NO is considered. Acute stress also activates many brain areas activated by Tx2-6 as well as with NOstimulated Fos transcription. Brain areas that appear to be selectively activated by Tx2-6, include the paratenial and paraventricular thalamic nuclei, the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and the area postrema and the dorsal motor n. of vagus in the medulla. However, direct injections of different doses of the toxin into the paraventricular hypothalamic n. failed to induce penile erection, arguing against CNS involvement in this particular effect.

t(X;14)(p11.4;q32.33) is recurrent in marginal zone lymphoma and up-regulates GPR34.  

PubMed

Genetic events underlying pathogenesis of nodal and extranodal marginal zone lymphoma are not completely understood. We report here a novel t(X;14)(p11.4;q32.33) identified in 4 lymphoma cases: 2 with a mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, one with a nodal marginal zone lymphoma and one with gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. In all cases, lymphoma evolved from a previous auto-immune disorder. Fluorescence in situ hybridization and molecular studies showed that t(X;14), which is mediated by immunoglobulin heavy chain locus, targets the GPR34 gene at Xp11.4. Upregulation of GPR34 mRNA and aberrant expression of GPR34 protein has been demonstrated in 3 presented cases by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction and immunohistochemistry, respectively. GPR34 belongs to the largest family of cell surface molecules involved in signal transmission that play important roles in many physiological and pathological processes, including tumorigenesis. Although functional consequences of t(X;14) have not been identified, our studies suggest that up-regulated GPR34 activate neither nuclear factor-?B nor ELK-related tyrosine kinase. PMID:22058210

Recombinant production and solution structure of PcTx1, the specific peptide inhibitor of ASIC1a proton-gated cation channels.  

PubMed

Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are thought to be important ion channels, particularly for the perception of pain. Some of them may also contribute to synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory. Psalmotoxin 1 (PcTx1), the first potent and specific blocker of the ASIC1a proton-sensing channel, has been successfully expressed in the Drosophila melanogaster S2 cell recombinant expression system used here for the first time to produce a spider toxin. The recombinant toxin was identical in all respects to the native peptide, and its three-dimensional structure in solution was determined by means of (1)H 2D NMR spectroscopy. Surface characteristics of PcTx1 provide insights on key structural elements involved in the binding of PcTx1 to ASIC1a channels. They appear to be localized in the beta-sheet and the beta-turn linking the strands, as indicated by electrostatic anisotropy calculations, surface charge distribution, and the presence of residues known to be implicated in channel recognition by other inhibitor cystine knot (ICK) toxins.

The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 (42 USC sections 10101-10226) requires the environmental assessment of a proposed site to include a statement of the basis for nominating a site as suitable for characterization. Volume 2 provides a detailed statement evaluating the site suitability of the Deaf Smith County Site under DOE siting guidelines, as well as a comparison of the Deaf Smith County Site to the other sites under consideration. The evaluation of the Deaf Smith County Site is based on the impacts associated with the reference repository design, but the evaluation will not change if based on the Mission Plan repository concept. The second part of this document compares the Deaf Smith County Site to Davis Canyon, Hanford, Richton Dome and Yucca Mountain. This comparison is required under DOE guidelines and is not intended to directly support subsequent recommendation of three sites for characterization as candidate sites. 259 refs., 29 figs., 66 refs.

The Bridge of Mandolin County  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Bridge of Mandolin County is a case designed to teach the general chemistry principles of molar mass, ions and aqueous reactions, solubility rules, and inorganic nomenclature. Through the instructor-facilitated class discussion, students consider the options before the Mandolin Town Council regarding deicing the newly constructed bridge connecting Mandolin with a large nearby city. The students must decipher contradictory claims made on behalf of sodium chloride, the traditional deicer, and calcium magnesium acetate, a new environmentally friendly deicer, to arrive at the most cost-effective and environmentally appropriate deicing product. As they work through the analysis they raise questions that can be addressed in a laboratory setting. Four optional role-playing experiments are included, which can be used by the students to gather information helpful to resolution of the case. The case is intended to be used over two class periods, with a laboratory period in between, though suggestions for other models are provided. Laboratory procedures include an EDTA titration for Ca2+ and Mg2+, a gravimetric analysis, a qualitative examination of ions and solubility, an introduction to freezing point depression and measurement, and an experimental design activity. This case can also successfully be used without alteration in non-majors chemistry or environmental chemistry courses, or upper-level analytical or environmental chemistry courses.

Geothermal development plan: Maricopa County  

SciTech Connect

The Maricopa County Geothermal Development Plan evaluated the market potential for utilizing geothermal energy. The study identified six potential geothermal resource areas with temperatures less than 100{sup 0}C (212{sup 0}F) and in addition, four suspected intermediate temperature areas (90{sup 0} to 150{sup 0}C, 194{sup 0} to 300{sup 0}F). Geothermal resources are found to occur in and near the Phoenix metropolitan area where average population growth rates of two to three percent per year are expected over the next 40 years. Rapid growth in the manufacturing, trade and service sectors of the regional economy provides opportunities for the direct utilization of geothermal energy. A regional energy use analysis is included containing energy use and price projections. Water supplies are found to be adequate to support this growth, though agricultural water use is expected to diminish. The study also contains a detailed section matching geothermal resources to potential users. Two comparative analyses providing economic details for space heating projects are incorporated.

Edwards Aquifer Evaluation: Kinney County, Texas  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Edwards Aquifer is one of the most studied and most prolific aquifers in the United States. The aquifer is a heavily fractured and faulted carbonate aquifer with transmissivities in excess of 100 ft2/s. The City of San Antonio relies upon the Edwards Aquifer as its sole source for water. Much work has been done on quantifying recharge to the aquifer and discharge from wells and acquiring aquifer characteristics from pumping tests, specific capacity tests, and geophysical logs. Although the aquifer has been well studied in Bexar County, much less is known about the Edwards Aquifer in Kinney County. This is partly due to the lower population within the county (approximately 3,500 people) relative to the eastern counties (Uvalde, Medina, Bexar, Comal, and Hays) and the great distance of Kinney County from high profile discharge areas such as the City of San Antonio and Comal and San Marcos Springs. Three key products resulted from this study: (1) exploratory well drilling and the largest aquifer test in the county that were conducted to evaluate the well yields within a 10,000 acre study area in which a drawdown of 2.5 ft approximately 1.2 miles away was observed while pumping at approximately 4,600 gpm; (2) a recharge estimate for the Edwards Aquifer within Kinney County of approximately 71,382 ac-ft/yr; and (3) locating the Brackettville Groundwater Divide from an evaluation of ground water flow direction and hydrograph analysis. These results help evaluate the complex hydraulics occurring within Kinney County and aid in development of ground water modeling that will be used in managing the Edwards Aquifer.

Concentrations and vapor-particle partitioning of polychlorinated dibenzo- p-dioxins and dibenzofurans in ambient air of Houston, TX  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The levels of the 2,3,7,8-substituted congeners of polychlorinated dibenzo- p-dioxins (2,3,7,8-PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (2,3,7,8-PCDFs) were measured in ambient air in Houston, TX between September 2002 and April 2003. Samples collected from five locations showed that the monthly total average 2,3,7,8-PCDD/PCDF concentrations ranged from 808 to 1760 fg m -3 with an average of 1235 fg m -3, consistent with their counterparts from other urban areas. From the measured concentrations, it was also observed that: (i) Houston exhibited low 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8-TCDF concentrations, (ii) the fall and winter V/ P ratios for Houston were close to one, probably due to elevated winter temperatures, (iii) the highest chlorinated 2,3,7,8-PCDD/PCDFs exhibited the highest concentrations, and (iv) 2,3,7,8-substituted congeners of PCDDs were the major contributors to the International Toxic Equivalent. The last three observations differ from the literature. Gas-particle partitioning ( Koa-based and PL?-based) models were used to describe the distribution of the 2,3,7,8-substituted congeners for Houston. It was determined that PL? estimates using retention indices were more accurate than those obtained with entropy-based approaches. The research demonstrates that PM 2.5 and PM 10 can be used instead of total suspended particle to estimate Kp, although it was shown that PM 10 is more appropriate for relating the particulate fraction to Koa. Finally, the research demonstrates that Kp- PL? partitioning models are improved by adding relative humidity as a variable to the correlation analysis.

Impacts of cool cities on air quality: A preliminary modeling assessment for Nashville TN, Dallas TX and Atlanta GA  

SciTech Connect

Previous atmospheric modeling efforts that concentrated on the Los Angeles Basin suggested beneficial and significant air quality impacts from cool cities strategies. This paper discusses an extension of similar modeling efforts to three regions, Atlanta GA, Dallas - Ft. Worth TX, and Nashville TN, that experience smog and air quality problems. According to the older ozone air quality standard (120 ppb), these regions were classified as serious, moderate, and marginal, respectively, but may be out of compliance with respect to the newer, 80-ppb/8-hours standard. Results from this exploratory modeling work suggest a range of possible impacts on meteorological and air quality conditions. For example, peak ozone concentrations during each region's respective episode could be decreased by 1-6 ppb (conservative and optimistic scenarios, respectively) in Nashville, 5-15 ppb in Dallas - Fort Worth, and 5-12 ppb in Atlanta following implementation of cool cities. The reductions are generally smaller than those obtained from simulating the Los Angeles Basin but are still significant. In all regions, the simulations suggest, the net, domain-wide effects of cool cities are reductions in ozone mass and improvements in air quality. In Atlanta, Nashville, and Dallas, urban areas benefiting from reduced smog reach up to 8460, 7350, and 12870 km{sup 2} in area, respectively. Results presented in this paper should be taken as exploratory and preliminary. These will most likely change during a more comprehensive modeling study to be started soon with the support of the US Environmental Protection Agency. The main purpose of the present project was to obtain the initial data (emission inventories) for these regions, simulate meteorological conditions, and perform preliminary sensitivity analysis. In the future, additional regions will be simulated to assess the potential of cool cities in improving urban air quality.

On the structure of hot gas in haloes: implications for the LX-TX relation and missing baryons  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present one-dimensional models of the hot gas in dark matter haloes, which both predict the existence of cool cores and explain their structure. Our models are directly applicable to semi-analytic models of galaxy formation. We have previously argued that filaments of cold (˜104 K) gas condense out of the intracluster medium (ICM) in hydrostatic and thermal equilibrium when the ratio of the thermal instability time-scale to the free-fall time tTI/tff falls below 5-10. This criterion corresponds to an upper limit on the density of the ICM and motivates a model in which a density core forms wherever tTI/tff ? 10. Consistent with observations and numerical simulations, this model predicts larger and more tenuous cores for lower mass haloes - while the core density in a cluster may be as large as ˜0.1 cm-3, the core density in the Galactic halo should not exceed ˜10-4 cm-3. We can also explain the large densities in smaller mass haloes (galactic 'coronae') if we include the contribution of the central galaxy to the gravitational potential. Our models produce a favourable match to the observational X-ray luminosity-temperature (LX-TX) relation. For halo masses ?1013 M? the core size approaches the virial radius. Thus, most of the baryons in such haloes cannot be in the hot ICM, but either in the form of stars or in the form of hot gas beyond the virial radius. Because of the smaller mass in the ICM and much larger mass available for star formation, the majority of the baryons in low-mass haloes (?1013 M?) can be expelled beyond the virial radius due to supernova feedback. This can account for the baryons 'missing' from low-mass haloes, such as the Galactic halo.

Geology of Griggs and Steele Counties  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Griggs and Steele Counties, located at the eastern edge of the Williston basin, are underlain by 400 to 2,600 feet of Paleozoic and Mesozoic rocks that dip gently to the west. The Cretaceous Greenhorn, Carlile, Niobrara, and Pierre Formations lie directly beneath the glacial drift, and shale of the Pierre Formation is exposed in several places along the Sheyenne River. The Pleistocene Coleharbor Formation, which covers most of the area, consists mainly of glacial, fluvial, and lake sediment. The Coleharbor Formation averages 200 to 300 feet thick, but it is as much as 550 feet thick in some of the buried valleys. The Holocene Walsh Formation occurs in parts of the area, chiefly sloughs and river bottomland. It consists mainly of alluvial and eolian sediment. Griggs County and the western two-thirds of Steele County are part of the Drift Prairie, which is characterized by flat to gently rolling topography that is rugged in areas of end moraines and intense ice thrusting, subdued on the ground moraine and outwash plains. Associated with these major landforms are numerous washboard moraines, drumlins, eskers, kames, meltwater trenches, and water-washed areas. The eastern third of Steele County is a nearly flat area covered by lake deposits of the glacial Lake Agassiz. As the Late Wisconsinan glacier in eastern North Dakota thinned and receded eastward, it was increasingly affected by the topography over which it was flowing. This resulted in lobation of the glacier. Locally intense areas of thrusting developed within the lobate glacier, and large blocks of subglacial material were moved short distances. Large areas of Griggs County were washed by water flowing from the glacier, and in some areas gravel and sand were deposited. Continued withdrawal of the glacier resulted in ponding of melt water in parts of the two counties. These and other ponds tended to coalesce at lower and lower elevations, eventually forming Lake Agassiz, which flooded part of eastern Steele County.

Participation of Na(+) channels in the potentiation by Tityus serrulatus alpha-toxin TsTx-V of glucose-induced electrical activity and insulin secretion in rodent islet beta-cells.  

PubMed

The effects of TsTx-V, an alpha-toxin isolated from Tityus serrulatus venom, on electrical activity and insulin secretion by rodent pancreatic islet cells were studied. TsTx-V (5.6 microg/ml) depolarized mouse pancreatic beta-cells, diminished the membrane input resistance and increased the duration of the active phase of glucose-induced electrical activity. Similar results were observed with the Na(+) channel agonist veratridine (110 microM). Both agents potentiated glucose (8.3 mM)-induced insulin secretion in rat islet. In the presence of TsTx-V or veratridine, insulin secretion increased 2- and 1.4-fold over basal values, respectively (P<0.001). The Na(+) channel antagonist tetrodotoxin (6 microM) significantly decreased glucose- and TsTx-V-induced insulin secretion (P<0.001). TsTx-V also stimulated insulin secretion at low glucose concentrations (2.8 mM) whereas the beta-toxin, Ts-gamma (gamma toxin), also obtained from Tityus serrulatus venom, significantly reduced TsTx-V-induced secretion at sub- and suprathreshold concentrations of glucose. These results are consistent with a model whereby Na(+) channels participate in glucose-induced electrical activity. Alteration in the activity of these channels changes the length of time during which the beta-cell depolarizes, thereby altering the secretory behavior of the cell. The construction of a three-dimensional model for TsTx-V revealed a conserved core containing an alpha-helix and three beta-strands, with minor differences when compared with toxins from other scorpion venoms.

Erie County residential energy-assistance program  

SciTech Connect

The Residential Energy Assistance Program (REAP) developed and demonstrated a method for coordinating City, County, and utility weatherization and support services so as to increase low and low-moderate income family participation in energy conservation activities within Erie County. A principal objective was to inprove participation of such families in New York State's Home Insulation and Energy Conservation Act (1977) energy audit and loan program. Coordination of weatherization and energy assistance services was carried out through the development of a reference guide containing the qualifications for each of the available programs. This Guide was used in conjunction with training for municipal and community agency housing staff and consumer education workshops to form the basis of a coordinated approach to promoting energy conservation in the low-income sector. Achieving active participation by the low-income sector in conservation awareness programs was difficult. A total of fourteen workshops were conducted throughout the County which were attended by 175 participants.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Wisconsin Valley, Langlade and Ontonagon Lobes of the Laurentide Ice Sheet flowed across all or part of Villas County between 23,000 and 10,000 years ago. These lobes deposited the Wildcat Lake, Nashville and Crab Lake Members of the Cooper Falls formation respectively. Each member is defined by the physical characteristics of a till, and each member also contains supraglacial debris flow sediment, and subglacial and proglacial fluvial sediment. A number of former ice margin positions are indicated in Vilas County by moraines and the ice contact slope of fluvial landforms. Regional correlation shows that the Langlade and Green Bay Lobes remained near their maximum Late Wisconsin extent when the Wisconsin Valley and Chippewa Lobes had retreated up to 100 km. The Ontonagon Lobe advanced into northern Vilas County and deposited the Winegar Moraine, probably just before growth of the Two Creeks Forest Bed in east central Wisconsin.

Dutchess County Resource Recovery Task Force report: Dutchess County Pyrolysis Program  

SciTech Connect

Dutchess County initiated development of a long-range master plan for Solid Waste Management in 1971. The plan included development of a resource recovery facility to service the municipalities in the County population center. Based on early recommendations, a pyrolysis facility employing Purox technology was to be implemented. A feasibility study, paid for by County funds was completed in 1975. The study provided siting recommendations, estimation of available waste, and preliminary facility design. Because of various considerations, the project was not developed. Under the Department of Energy grant, the County reassessed the feasibility of a resource recovery facility, with emphasis on confirming previous conclusions supporting the Purox technology, waste availability, energy recovery and sale and siting of the plant. The conclusions reached in the new study were: a resource recovery facility is feasible for the County; sufficient waste for such a facility is available and subject to control; While Purox technology was feasible it is not the most appropriate available technoloy for the County; that mass burning with steam recovery is the most appropriate technology; and that resource recovery while presently more expensive than landfilling, represents the only cost effective, energy efficient, and environmentally sound way to handle the solid waste problem in the County.

Air pollution and fatal lung disease in three Utah counties  

SciTech Connect

A unique situation found in two Utah counties has made it possible to estimate the fraction of respiratory cancer and nonmalignant respiratory disease (NMRD) deaths, which are attributable to community air pollution (CAP) in one county. The two counties were very similar in many ways, including low smoking rates, until a steel mill constructed during WW II caused substantial CAP in one of them. Subsequent differences in mortality rates from both respiratory cancer and NMRD are striking. A third county, similar to many counties outside Utah, was included in the analysis for comparison. In one county, 30-40% of the respiratory cancer and NMRD deaths were attributable to CAP. In this county, NMRD deaths (but not respiratory cancer deaths) were slightly more frequent than in Salt Lake County where smoking rates were twice as high.

Superfund Record of Decision (EPA Region 6): Crystal Chemical Site, Houston, TX. (First remedial action), (amendment), June 1992. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The 24.4-acre Crystal Chemical site consists of a 6.8-acre abandoned herbicide manufacturing facility (referred to as the onsite area) and 17.6 acres of affected surrounding properties (referred to as the offsite area) in Houston, Harris County, Texas. From 1968 to 1981, herbicides, including arsenic compounds, were manufactured onsite. During transfer of raw materials from rail cars, onsite soil was contaminated by herbicides spilled from drums. Contamination of offsite soil and sediment was a result of periodic flooding, which caused arsenic-contaminated onsite wastewater to move offsite. The ROD amends the remedy for soil with onsite disposal and capping. The amended remedial action for the site includes excavating all offsite soil contaminated with arsenic above 30 mg/l; placing the soil back on the site; construction of a multi-layer cap and implementing institutional controls to restrict future land use.

Measurement Error in County-Level UCR Data  

Microsoft Academic Search

Maltz and Targonski (2002) have provided an important service by disaggregating the county level data to help researchers examine measurement errors in the county level data, but their conclusion that county-level crime data, as they are currently constituted, should not be used, especially in policy studies is not justified. All data has measurement error, presumably even their measures of this

Water resources of Spink County, South Dakota  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Spink County, an agricultural area of about 1,505 square miles, is in the flat to gently rolling James River lowland of east-central South Dakota. The water resources are characterized by the highly variable flows of the James River and its tributaries and by aquifers both in glacial deposits of sand and gravel, and in sandstone in the bedrock. Glacial aquifers underlie about half of the county, and bedrock aquifers underlie most of the county. The James River is an intermittent prairie stream that drains nearly 8,900 square miles north of Spink County and has an average annual discharge of about 124 cubic feet per second where it enters the county. The discharge is augmented by the flow of Snake and Turtle Creeks, each of which has an average annual flow of about 25 to 30 cubic feet per second. Streamflow is unreliable as a water supply because precipitation, which averages 18.5 inches annually, is erratic both in volume and in distribution, and because the average annual potential evapotranspiration rate is 43 inches. The flow of tributaries generally ceases by summer, and zero flows are common in the James River in fall and winter. Aquifers in glacial drift deposits store nearly 3.3 million acre-feet of fresh to slightly saline water at depths of from near land surface to more than 500 feet below land surface beneath an area of about 760 square miles. Yields of properly developed wells in the more productive aquifers exceed 1,000 gallons per minute in some areas. Withdrawals from the aquifers, mostly for irrigation, totaled about 15,000 acre-feet of water in 1990. Water levels in observation wells generally have declined less than 15 feet over several decades of increasing pumpage for irrigation, but locally have declined nearly 30 feet. Water levels generally rose during the wet period of 1983-86. In Spink County, bedrock aquifers store more than 40 million acre-feet of slightly to moderately saline water at depths of from 80 to about 1,300 feet below land surface. Yields of properly developed wells range from 2 to 600 gallons per minute. The artesian head of the heavily used Dakota aquifer has declined about 350 feet in the approximately 100 years since the first artesian wells were drilled in the county, but water levels have stabilized locally as a result of decreases in the discharge of water from the wells. Initial flows of from 4 gallons per minute to as much as 30 gallons per minute of very hard water can be obtained in the southwestern part of the county, where drillers report artesian heads of nearly 100 feet above land surface. The quality of water from aquifers in glacial drift varies greatly, even within an aquifer. Concentrations of dissolved solids in samples ranged from 151 to 9,610 milligrams per liter, and hardness ranged from 84 to 3,700 milligrams per liter. Median concentrations of dissolved solids, sulfate, iron, and manganese in some glacial aquifers are near or exceed Secondary Maximum Contaminant Levels (SMCL's) established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some of the water from aquifers in glacial drift is suitable for irrigation use. Water samples from aquifers in the bedrock contained concentrations of dissolved solids that ranged from 1,410 to 2,670 milligrams per liter (sum of constituents) and hardness that ranged from 10 to 1,400 milligrams per liter; these concentrations generally are largest for aquifers below the Dakota aquifer. Median concentrations of dissolved solids, sulfate, iron, and manganese in Dakota wells either are near or exceed EPA SMCL's. Dissolved solids, sodium, and boron concentrations in water from bedrock aquifers commonly are too large for the water to be suitable for irrigation use.

A successful turnaround in Dade County  

SciTech Connect

When Dade County, Fla., decided to build a waste-to-energy plant, little did it known what a stink it would bring. Odor problems and seagulls plagued the neighborhood, emissions exceeded regulatory standards, and wind-blown garbage littered the facility. Maintenance costs rose and electricity sales never came close to its rated capacity. The residents called for a change, and they got it. After a new operator took over the plant, some of the problems were quickly solved. Other problems, which required substantial capital improvements to solve, were clearly identified. And after Dade County approved a new contract with $45 million in improvements, the facility is back on track to meeting the community's needs in an acceptable manner. The paper describes the original plant design, early problems, improved operation, present plant operation, and the Plant Rehabilitation Program.
