Titles and abstracts of scientific reports ignore variation among species.  

PubMed

An analysis of more than 1000 research articles in biology reveals that the name of the species being studied is not mentioned in the title or abstract of many articles. Consequently, such data are not easily accessible in the PubMed database. These omissions can mislead readers about the true nature of developmental processes and delay the acceptance of valid species differences. To improve the accuracy of the scientific record, I suggest that journals should require that authors include the name of the species being studied in the title or abstract of submitted papers.

Title and Abstract Screening and Evaluation in Systematic Reviews (TASER): a pilot randomised controlled trial of title and abstract screening by medical students  

PubMed Central

Background The production of high quality systematic reviews requires rigorous methods that are time-consuming and resource intensive. Citation screening is a key step in the systematic review process. An opportunity to improve the efficiency of systematic review production involves the use of non-expert groups and new technologies for citation screening. We performed a pilot study of citation screening by medical students using four screening methods and compared students’ performance to experienced review authors. Methods The aims of this pilot randomised controlled trial were to provide preliminary data on the accuracy of title and abstract screening by medical students, and on the effect of screening modality on screening accuracy and efficiency. Medical students were randomly allocated to title and abstract screening using one of the four modalities and required to screen 650 citations from a single systematic review update. The four screening modalities were a reference management software program (EndNote), Paper, a web-based systematic review workflow platform (ReGroup) and a mobile screening application (Screen2Go). Screening sensitivity and specificity were analysed in a complete case analysis using a chi-squared test and Kruskal-Wallis rank sum test according to screening modality and compared to a final set of included citations selected by expert review authors. Results Sensitivity of medical students’ screening decisions ranged from 46.7% to 66.7%, with students using the web-based platform performing significantly better than the paper-based group. Specificity ranged from 93.2% to 97.4% with the lowest specificity seen with the web-based platform. There was no significant difference in performance between the other three modalities. Conclusions Medical students are a feasible population to engage in citation screening. Future studies should investigate the effect of incentive systems, training and support and analytical methods on screening performance.

Adequacy for Infinitary Algebraic Effects (Abstract)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Moggi famously proposed a monadic account of computational effects [Mog89, Mog91, BHM02]; this account includes the computational ?-calculus, a core call-by-value functional programming language. Moggi endowed the computational ?-calculus with an effect-oriented denotational semantics by taking the denotations of terms to be morphisms in the Kleisli category of the monad. The question naturally then arises as to whether one can give a correspondingly general treatment of operational semantics.

Preparing and presenting effective abstracts and posters in psychiatry.  

PubMed

Presenting an abstract and a poster gives scientists from all fields, including psychiatry, an important opportunity to introduce their research to others. Researchers and mental health professionals at all levels of career development can use several media resources to assist them with the technical aspects of preparing an abstract or a poster. This article will focus on major principles associated with preparing and presenting an abstract and a poster at a scientific meeting. A literature search using NIH PubMed was conducted to identify peer and nonpeer-reviewed articles that provide methods for effective abstract and poster presentation for the period of 1966 to June 2014. First, the author reviews the purpose and relative importance of abstracts and posters in academic settings. Next, the author describes the qualities of an effective abstract and poster and common pitfalls that may occur. Finally, the author presents a systematic approach to preparing and presenting an abstract and a poster in a scientific setting. Several sources consistently suggest that readability, organization, and succinctness are qualities that make an effective and successful abstract and poster. Mental health professionals in all stages of their career development may benefit from following these guidelines in presenting their scientific work. PMID:25085499

Generating effective project scheduling heuristics by abstraction and reconstitution  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A project scheduling problem consists of a finite set of jobs, each with fixed integer duration, requiring one or more resources such as personnel or equipment, and each subject to a set of precedence relations, which specify allowable job orderings, and a set of mutual exclusion relations, which specify jobs that cannot overlap. No job can be interrupted once started. The objective is to minimize project duration. This objective arises in nearly every large construction project--from software to hardware to buildings. Because such project scheduling problems are NP-hard, they are typically solved by branch-and-bound algorithms. In these algorithms, lower-bound duration estimates (admissible heuristics) are used to improve efficiency. One way to obtain an admissible heuristic is to remove (abstract) all resources and mutual exclusion constraints and then obtain the minimal project duration for the abstracted problem; this minimal duration is the admissible heuristic. Although such abstracted problems can be solved efficiently, they yield inaccurate admissible heuristics precisely because those constraints that are central to solving the original problem are abstracted. This paper describes a method to reconstitute the abstracted constraints back into the solution to the abstracted problem while maintaining efficiency, thereby generating better admissible heuristics. Our results suggest that reconstitution can make good admissible heuristics even better.

The Effects of Psychological Distance on Abstraction: Two Meta-analyses.  

PubMed

Psychological distance and abstraction both represent key variables of considerable interest to researchers across cognitive, social, and developmental psychology. Moreover, largely inspired by construal level theory, numerous experiments across multiple fields have now connected these 2 constructs, examining how psychological distance affects the level of abstraction at which people mentally represent the world around them. The time is clearly ripe for a quantitative synthesis to shed light on the relation between these constructs and investigate potential moderators. To this end, we conducted 2 meta-analyses of research examining the effects of psychological distance on abstraction and its downstream consequences. Across 106 papers containing a total of 267 experiments, our results showed a reliable and medium-sized effect of psychological distance on both level of abstraction in mental representation and the downstream consequences of abstraction. Importantly, these effects replicate across time, researchers, and settings. Our analyses also identified several key moderators, including the size of the difference in distance between 2 levels of a temporal distance manipulation and the dependent variable's capacity to tap processing of both abstract and concrete features (rather than only one or the other). We discuss theoretical and methodological implications, and highlight promising avenues for future research. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved). PMID:25420220

Public Utility Commission Regulation and Cost-Effectiveness of Title IV: Lessons for CAIR  

SciTech Connect

There is growing evidence that the cost savings potential of the Title IV SO{sub 2} cap-and-trade program is not being reached. PUC regulatory treatment of compliance options appears to provide one explanation for this finding. That suggests that PUCs and utility companies should work together to develop incentive plans that will encourage cost-minimizing behavior for compliance with the EPA's recently issued Clean Air Interstate Rule.

An Abstract Semantics for Inference of Types and Effects in a Multi-Tier Web Language  

E-print Network

Types-and-effects are type systems, which allow one to express general semantic properties and to statically reason about program's execution. They have been widely exploited to specify static analyses, for example to track computational side effects, exceptions and communications in concurrent programs. In this paper we adopt abstract interpretation techniques to reconstruct (following the Cousot's methodology) a types-and-effects system developed to handle security problems of a multi-tier web language. Our reconstruction allows us to show that this types-and-effects system is not sound with respect to the semantics of the language. In addition, we correct the soundness issues in the analysis and systematically construct a correct analyser.

Abstract — The Internet is a huge collection of data. To get the appropriate information from it, using a search engine is the most effective way. Many Search Engines were introduced since 1990. In this paper we present a brief study on search engines. First, we present the definition of search engine, types of search engines and the general working process of a search engine. Then we give an example for the working process with a description of the Google search engine architecture. Later, we present a short description of the next generation search engines. Then we present comparisons among some major search engines. Index Terms — Internet; Search Engine; working; architecture. I.

Spatial distance effects on incremental semantic interpretation of abstract sentences: evidence from eye tracking.  

PubMed

A large body of evidence has shown that visual context information can rapidly modulate language comprehension for concrete sentences and when it is mediated by a referential or a lexical-semantic link. What has not yet been examined is whether visual context can also modulate comprehension of abstract sentences incrementally when it is neither referenced by, nor lexically associated with, the sentence. Three eye-tracking reading experiments examined the effects of spatial distance between words (Experiment 1) and objects (Experiment 2 and 3) on participants' reading times for sentences that convey similarity or difference between two abstract nouns (e.g., 'Peace and war are certainly different...'). Before reading the sentence, participants inspected a visual context with two playing cards that moved either far apart or close together. In Experiment 1, the cards turned and showed the first two nouns of the sentence (e.g., 'peace', 'war'). In Experiments 2 and 3, they turned but remained blank. Participants' reading times at the adjective (Experiment 1: first-pass reading time; Experiment 2: total times) and at the second noun phrase (Experiment 3: first-pass times) were faster for sentences that expressed similarity when the preceding words/objects were close together (vs. far apart) and for sentences that expressed dissimilarity when the preceding words/objects were far apart (vs. close together). Thus, spatial distance between words or entirely unrelated objects can rapidly and incrementally modulate the semantic interpretation of abstract sentences. PMID:25215930

Substituent effects on the reaction rates of hydrogen abstraction in the pyrolysis of phenethyl phenyl ethers  

SciTech Connect

We report reaction profiles and forward rate constants for hydrogen abstraction reactions occurring in the pyrolysis of methoxy-substituted derivatives of phenethyl phenyl ether (PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh, PPE), where the substituents are located on the aryl ether ring (PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh-X). We use density functional theory in combination with transition-state theory, and anharmonic corrections are included within the independent mode approximation. PPE is the simplest model of the abundant {beta}-O-4 linkage in lignin. The mechanism of PPE pyrolysis and overall product selectivities have been studied experimentally by one of us, which was followed by computational analysis of key individual hydrogen-transfer reaction steps. In the previous work, we have been able to use a simplified kinetic model based on quasi-steady-state conditions to reproduce experimental {alpha}/{beta} selectivities for PPE and PPEs with substituents on the phenethyl ring (X-PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh). This model is not applicable to PPE derivatives where methoxy substituents are located on the phenyl ring adjacent to the ether oxygen because of the strongly endothermic character of the hydrogen abstraction by substituted phenoxy radicals as well as the decreased kinetic chain lengths resulting from enhanced rates of the initial C?O homolysis step. Substituents decelerate the hydrogen abstraction by the phenoxy radical, while the influence on the benzyl abstraction is less homogeneous. The calculations provide insight into the contributions of steric and polar effects in these important hydrogen-transfer steps. We emphasize the importance of an exhaustive conformational space search to calculate rate constants and product selectivities. The computed rate constants will be used in future work to numerically simulate the pyrolysis mechanism, pending the calculation of the rate constants of all participating reactions.

Effect of Pumping Strategies on Pesticide Concentrations in Water Abstraction Wells  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pesticide use in agriculture is one of the main sources of groundwater contamination and poses an important threat to groundwater abstraction. Pesticides have been detected in 37% of Danish monitoring wells sampled, with 12 % exceeding ground water guidelines. Field data captured in monitoring and pumping wells show that pesticide concentrations vary greatly in both time and space. This study aimed to use models to determine how pumping affects pesticide concentrations in water abtraction wells placed in two hypothetical aquifer systems; a homogeneous layered aquifer and a layered aquifer with a stream. Two pesticides with different application histories, chemical structure and properties were considered: an old pesticide, MCPP (Mecoprop) which is mobile and relatively persistent; and a newer pesticide, bentazone, which is persistent and low-sorbing. Numerical models of contaminant transport in a pumping well capture zone were constructed using COMSOL Multiphysics. A series of simulations were conducted to examine the effect of pumping strategies (constant versus varying pumping rate), pesticide properties and aquifer hydrogeology on the concentration in drinking water wells. The results of the simulations showed that the pumping rate can significantly affect the pesticide breakthrough time and maximum concentration at an abstraction well. The effect of the pumping rate on the pesticide concentration depended on the hydrogeology of the aquifer. For example, in a layered aquifer a high pumping rate resulted in a considerably different breakthrough than a low pumping rate, while in an aquifer with a stream the pumping rate had an insignificant effect on the breakthrough at the well. The pesticide properties and application history had a great impact on the observed pesticide concentrations. For example, for a non-sorbing and non-degradable pesticide (e.g., bentazone), the pumping rate was insignificant, while for a sorbing and degradable pesticide (e.g., MCPP) the pumping rate affected both the maximum concentration and the breakthrough time at the well. The findings of the study showed that variable pumping rates can generate temporal variability in the concentration at the well, similar to that observed in groundwater monitoring programmes. The results were also used to provide guidance on the design of pumping and remediation strategies for the long-term supply of safe potable groundwater. For example, if application of bentazone in a layered aquifer stops today, the concentration at the well will continue to grow for 20 years if a low pumping rate is applied, while the decay will be immediate for a high pumping rate. However, for both pumping rates it will take more than 50 years for the pesticide to be flushed out of the aquifer. This study concluded that well head management of pumping strategies is important for managing pesticide concentrations in water supply wells and that the approach developed can guide the selection of pesticde monitoring well locations for the protection of drinking water wells.

Abstraction of iodine from aromatic iodides by alkyl radicals: steric and electronic effects.  

PubMed

Abstraction of the iodine atom from aryl iodides by alkyl radicals takes place in some cases very efficiently despite the unfavorable difference in bond dissociation energies of C-I bonds in alkyl and aryl iodides. The abstraction is most efficient in iodobenzenes, ortho-substituted with bulky groups. The ease of abstraction can be explained by the release of steric strain during the elimination of the iodine atom. The rate of abstraction correlates fairly well with the strain energy, calculated by density functional theory (DFT) and Hartree-Fock (HF) methods as a difference in the total energy of ortho and para isomers. However, besides the steric bulk, the presence of some other functional groups in an ortho substituent also influences the rate. The stabilization of the transition state, resembling a 9-I-2 iodanyl radical, by electron-withdrawing groups seems to explain a positive sign of the Hammett rho value in the radical abstraction of halogen atoms.

TITLE: Functional Electric Stimulation (FES) for Children with Cerebral Palsy: Clinical Effectiveness  

E-print Network

Cerebral palsy encompasses a variety of non-progressive clinical syndromes characterized by abnormalities of motor activity and posture, causing an affected voluntary movement to become uncoordinated, stereotypic and limited. 1 Although the primary lesion is known to be static, neurologic symptoms may evolve with increasing age. 1 Cerebral palsy shows high variability in terms of severity and motor impairment, and may have a substantial impact on patients and their family. 2 A multidisciplinary approach is imperative and treatment aims at improving daily function and maximizing quality of life. 3 Electrical stimulation is one of the interventions offered to children with cerebral palsy, with the objective of increasing muscle strength. 3 There are different types of electrical stimulation, usually considered minimally invasive. However, in the same way as other interventions administered to improve symptoms of patients with cerebral palsy, electrical stimulation is sometimes considered experimental and uncertainty remains regarding its efficacy on clinically relevant outcomes. 3 This report will review evidence from studies assessing the clinical effectiveness of functional electrical stimulation (FES) for children with cerebral palsy.

Title:- Effects of Marine Cloud Brightening on Polar Regions and Meridional Heat Flux  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Marine cloud brightening (MCB) is one of several proposed solar radiation management geoengineering schemes designed to enhance the albedo of marine stratocumulus clouds, with concomitant overall cooling, and the intention of averting some of the undesirable effects of climate change (Latham et al. 2008, 2012). Such changes include ice loss, desertification and increased sea levels. Polar sea ice fraction has been recorded by satellite data for the last 40 years. This data shows a general long term reduction in sea ice thickness and area and this reduction has been attributed to climate change. Changes in climate have been reported to be disproportionately larger in polar regions. The HadGEM1 (UK Met Office Climate Model, V6.1) is a fully coupled climate model. It is used to project changes in polar ice cover and temperatures as a result of increasing carbon dioxide and the deployment of MCB geoengineering. The meridional heat flux is the mechanism for moving energy from the tropics to the polar regions. The results show that for a comparison between a control (~ 2020 carbon dioxide concentrations) and a double pre-industrial carbon dioxide simulation, the maximum meridional heat flux is found to change from 5.8 PW to 6.1 PW. With three-region MCB seeding of marine stratocumulus, this is reduced to 5.7 PW. Application of a three region seeding scenario, results an increase insea ice cover to 0.20 million sq km above the initial values.

Assessing effects of water abstraction on fish assemblages in Mediterranean streams  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Water abstraction strongly affects streams in arid and semiarid ecosystems, particularly where there is a Mediterranean climate. Excessive abstraction reduces the availability of water for human uses downstream and impairs the capacity of streams to support native biota. We investigated the flow regime and related variables in six river basins of the Iberian Peninsula and show that they have been strongly altered, with declining flows (autoregressive models) and groundwater levels during the 20th century. These streams had lower flows and more frequent droughts than predicted by the official hydrological model used in this region. Three of these rivers were sometimes dry, whereas there were predicted by the model to be permanently flowing. Meanwhile, there has been no decrease in annual precipitation. We also investigated the fish assemblage of a stream in one of these river basins (Tordera) for 6 years and show that sites more affected by water abstraction display significant differences in four fish metrics (catch per unit effort, number of benthic species, number of intolerant species and proportional abundance of intolerant individuals) commonly used to assess the biotic condition of streams. We discuss the utility of these metrics in assessing impacts of water abstraction and point out the need for detailed characterisation of the natural flow regime (and hence drought events) prior to the application of biotic indices in streams severely affected by water abstraction. In particular, in cases of artificially dry streams, it is more appropriate for regulatory agencies to assign index scores that reflect biotic degradation than to assign 'missing' scores, as is presently customary in assessments of Iberian streams.

Effect of hydration on the hydrogen abstraction reaction by HO in DMS and its oxidation products.  

PubMed

The gas-phase hydrogen abstraction reaction between the HO radical and sulfur containing species in the absence and presence of a single water molecule is investigated theoretically. The sulfur containing species dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl sulfoxide, and dimethyl sulfone are considered. The calculations are carried out with a mixture of density function theory and second order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory. We find that the energy of the hydrated transition state structures for the hydrogen abstraction reactions is lowered compared to that of the nonhydrated ones. Furthermore, the energy difference between the reaction complex and the transition state is reduced when one water molecule is added. The atmospheric abundance of the different hydrated complexes is estimated in order to assess the relative importance of the possible reaction mechanisms. PMID:20088555

Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded to explore the neural basis of this phenomenon. The behavioral results showed a clear concreteness effect in both implicit and explicit memory tests; participants responded significantly faster to concrete words than to abstract words. The ERP results revealed a concreteness effect (N400) in both the encoding and retrieval phases. In addition, behavioral and ERP results showed an interaction between word concreteness and memory instruction (to-be-forgotten vs. to-be-remembered) in the late epoch of the explicit retrieval phase, revealing a significant concreteness effect only under the to-be-remembered instruction condition. This concreteness effect was realized as an increased P600-like component in response to concrete words relative to abstract words, likely reflecting retrieval of contextual details. The time course of the concreteness effect suggests advantages of concrete words over abstract words due to greater contextual information. PMID:22041121

Abstract. Species composition, detritus, and soil data from 97 boreal forest stands along a transect in central Canada were analysed using Correspondence Analysis to determine the dominant environmental/site variables that differentiate these forest stands. Picea mariana stands were densely clustered together on the understorey DCA plot, suggesting a consistent understorey species composition (feather mosses and Erica-ceae), whereas Populus tremuloides stands had the most di-verse understorey species composition (ca. 30 species, mostly shrubs and herbs). Pinus banksiana stands had several charac-teristic species of reindeer lichens (Cladina spp.), but saplings and Pinus seedlings were rare. Although climatic variables showed large variation along the transect, the CCA results indicated that site conditions are more important in determining species composition and differentiating the stand types.

Abstract Phenomena of hybridization can affect the ecology and evolution of the species involved in the process, as well as their communities. Although numerous papers focus upon the problem of taxonomy, few of these have attempted to study hybrid zones in relation to the analysis of their communities. On the Iberian Peninsula, hybridization phenomena among different oak species are frequent. It is, however, between Quercus faginea Lam. and Quercus pubes-cens Willd. where the most noteworthy hybridization phenomenon occurs. In this respect, we are familiar with the existence of different introgression levels but we are unaware of whether these hybrids are the transitory result of the interspecific genetic flow or whether these are maintained by means of extrinsic

Abstract Plant phenology can be used for biomonitor-ing climate change. The flowering of certain temperate zone plant species occurs in response to accumulated heat. Networks of observers presently provide data on the timing of the growth of native and crop plants to Agro-meteorological Departments in Europe and the United States. In Alberta, a phenological survey which began in 1987 records flowering times for 15 native plants, with about 200 volunteers contributing observa-tions annually. Six years of data have been summarized and correlated with temperature measurements. The Alberta phenological data can provide a key to sound decision-making in two ways: by providing proxy data on key variables to which vegetation responds, and by providing a model for transforming simple weather data into biologically meaningful zones.

The samples are prepared by the coprecipitation method.1 The average particle size is 0.07 ?m, which is less than critical single-domain size. Thermomagnetic curves (TMC) of thermally demagnetized samples are studied between 300 and 800 K in external fields up to 8 kOe by VSM. An experimental curve with a well-expressed maximum closely below the Curie temperature (so-called Hopkinson effect) is shown on Fig. 1 (curve 1). Curve 2 on the figure shows a TMC calculated on the basis of the Stoner-Wohlfarth model, following the method described in Ref. 2. There is a good agreement between the experimental and calculated curves. This agreement becomes better when the thermal activation processes are taken into account.3 These results can be considered as an experimental confirmation of the existence of the Hopkinson effect in systems of single-domain particles.

Kerr-effect based magneto-optic imaging with sub-100 nm resolution (abstract)  

SciTech Connect

Magneto-optic imaging based on Faraday rotation with lateral resolution of about 60 nm was successfully demonstrated recently using scanning near-field optical microscopy. Magnetic contrast based on the Kerr effect with similar resolution still remains a challenge. Due to numerous applications of the Kerr effect this problem is of significant technical and scientific interest. Demonstration of such a contrast based on Kerr effect obtained using near-field optics is the subject of the present work. We have developed a reflection-mode scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) that is routinely capable of imaging with 30{endash}50 nm resolution. It is based on a metal coated fiber probe with the light of a diode laser ({lambda}=635 nm) coupled into it. Distance between the scanning probe and the sample is maintained constant at 5{endash}10 nm using a shear force based feedback. Light reflected from the sample is collected with an elliptic mirror and a photomultiplier. We have studied the dependence of polarization of light reflected from the various nonmagnetic metal and dielectric surfaces upon the distance between the probe and the surface. Mechanisms responsible for the change in polarization of the reflected light are analyzed. Finally a periodic array of domains was written in a Co/Pt multilayer film using optical thermomagnetic recording. The domains were imaged using a magnetic force microscopy technique that indicated that the size of the domain was about 400 nm. The domains were then imaged using our reflection-mode SNOM. Features of domains smaller than 100 nm in size are clearly resolved. Values of conventional polar Kerr rotation are compared with ones detected using the SNOM. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}

Effective use of tables and figures in abstracts, presentations, and papers.  

PubMed

In some situations, tables, graphs, and figures can present certain types of information (including complicated relationships and sequences of events) more clearly and in less space than the same information would require in sentence form. However, do not use tables, graphs, and figures for small amounts of data that could be conveyed clearly and succinctly in a sentence. Also, do not reiterate in sentences the data that are shown in a table, graph, or figure: the point of creating a table or graph or figure is to eliminate that type of sentence from your manuscript. In building a data table you must balance the necessity that the table be complete with the equally important necessity that it not be too complex. Sometimes it is helpful to break a large table into several smaller ones to allow the reader to identify important information easily, but, conversely, it is a common mistake of novice authors to split up into several tables data that belong in one table. In almost all cases, only one table or graph or figure should be included in an abstract, and then only if it can convey essential information in less space and in a more easily interpretable way than the sentence form. For a poster, in almost all instances you should use only one typeface and one font in a table, graph, or figure. In general, do not use bold, italics, or color unless you are presenting a great deal of data and you need to highlight certain data values and you are certain that using bold, italics, or color will improve readability, which is rare. Do not include identical information in a table and a graph/figure. In reporting a clinical trial you will need to include a patient flow chart that identifies the number of patients initially screened for the study, the number of patients who were excluded (and why) after initial screening or in the final analysis, and how many patients entered, exited early, and completed each arm of the study. A treatment protocol should also be described with a flow chart. In preparing a graph the most common error is to include a line that suggests an unsubstantiated extrapolation between or beyond the data points. In selecting the graph's axes, avoid truncating, enlarging, or compressing the axes in ways that might make the graph confusing or misleading. To prepare clear, accurate, easily interpretable tables, graphs, and figures, rely on the rules described in authoritative guides such as the Council of Science Editors' Scientific Style and Format and the American Medical Association's Manual of Style.

Velocity-independent time-domain seismic imaging using local event slopes Sergey Fomel 1 By estimating local event slopes in prestack seismic reflection data, it is possible to accomplish all common time-domain imaging tasks, from normal moveout to prestack time migration, without the need to estimate seismic velocities or any other attributes. Local slopes contain complete information about the reflection geometry. Once they are estimated, seismic velocities and all other moveout parameters turn into data attributes and are directly mappable from the prestack data domain into the time-migrated image domain. I develop an analytical theory, which defines the transformation from data and local slopes to the image space for different time-domain imaging operators. Computational experiments with synthetic and field data examples confirm theoretical expectations and demonstrate practical effectiveness of the proposed method.

Thermal relaxation effects observed in the giant magnetoresistance of NiFe/Ag degraded multilayers (abstract)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

NiFe/Ag degraded multilayers have potential for use in sensors and data storage. The magnetoresistance (MR) observed in these materials, after thay have been optimized by postdeposition annealing, has been found to have a good field sensitivity. It is believed that the size and saturation field of the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) is a function of the size of magnetostatic interactions that occur between the magnetic layers in the system. In order to improve the field sensitivity of the GMR in these materials, the volume of the NiFe aligned antiparallel by magnetostatic coupling will have to be maximized. We have investigated time-dependent thermal relaxation effects in the GMR of these systems in an attempt to determine both the nature of the coupling and the distribution of blocking sizes. The multilayers were deposited onto glass substrates at the system ambient temperature, by dc sputtering in a sputtering pressure of 7.5 mTorr of Ar. Fifteen bilayer repeat multilayers were prepared by rotating the substrate over the NiFe and Ag targets, alternately. Both NiFe and Ta underlayers have been investigated. The postdeposition annealing strategy used was 315 °C for 10 min in a vacuum of better than 10-5 Torr. We have investigated the time dependence of the GMR using a linear four point probe and measurements have been made over a temperature range 10-450 K. The blocking temperature, and the particle/platelet size distribution, of the entities that cause the GMR can be determined from these measurements. In addition, we have found a number of interesting temperature-dependent MR effects, and it is seen that the blocking temperature is below 350 K in all cases (Fig. 1).

“We do everything we can to make sure women have healthy babies. Although people might not know it, keeping childhood vaccination against rubella at high levels has a tremendous impact in making sure that babies are born healthy, ” adds Dr. Doug Campos-Outcalt of the American Academy of Family Physicians. Without rubella vaccination, the devastation of rubella and CRS would return to the United States because rubella still circulates in other parts of the world. And you don’t have to travel to become infected. Unvaccinated people who do travel—either members of your community or visitors from other countries—can become infected in places where rubella still circulates. Then when they are in the United States, they can spread the disease. You and your family can come into contact with an infected traveler anywhere in your community, from the grocery store to a sporting event. Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccine The measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) is the best way to protect against getting rubella. Serious side effects after MMR vaccination are rare. The benefits of using MMR vaccine to prevent rubella, as well as measles and mumps infections, far outweigh the risks of getting the vaccine. In the United States, the first dose of MMR vaccine is recommended at age 12 through 15 months old. A second dose is recommended at age 4 through 6 years.

Relatively moist to wet environments comprise a small fraction of the landscape including seasonally or temporarily flooded coulee bottoms and alluvial fans and terraces.

Measurement of effects of ripple on the permeability of thin film head materials (abstract)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A new low-field resonance technique for determining the initial hard-axis permeability (?') of materials used in thin film and magnetoresistive heads has been developed. The initial ?' is found to be less than 4?M/Hk due to the internal effective magnetostatic field caused by magnetization ripple, in agreement with the theory and transverse biased initial susceptibility measurements of Hoffmann and others.1 A proper consideration of the in-plane susceptibility for real films includes the Stoner-Wohlfarth anisotropy field (Hk)-1 dependence, modified by the factors due to ripple (B) and skew (E) as defined by Hoffmann. The latter produce internal fields that shift the Kittel resonance versus field plots (fr2 vs H) leftward from their ideal symmetric positions for angles of 0° and 90° between bias field and preferred axis. When resonance data from both orientations are computer-fit simultaneously, we determine the parameters B and E as well as Hk and Ms. The coefficients are believed to have more consistency than those obtained using Hk found from hard-axis magnetization curves. The reduction of the hard-axis ?' is by the factor (1+B+E)-1. The high frequency properties (300 kHz-3 GHz) were measured using a test jig consisting of a shorted-shield strip-line section with a one-turn inductively coupled loop containing the sample and located at the shorted end. Bias fields from zero to 100 Oe were employed. We measure fR reproducibly with an uncertainty of less than 1%. This analysis determines the parameters of interest from measurements under dynamic conditions. Results include Permalloy and amorphous TM-metalloid films. When annealed to reduce Hk, their B parameters increase in accord with theory, assuming invariant structure constants, S. Beyond head applications, the method relates to thin film microwave devices operating near fr in zero field.2

Results Comparedwith placebos, those receiving the active capsules committed an average of 26.3 % (95 % CI 8.3^44.33%) feweroffences (P0.03, two-tailed).Compared to baseline, the effectonthose takingactive supplements for aminimumof 2 weeks (n172) was an average 35.1 % (95 % CI16.3^53.9%) reduction of offences (P50.001, two-tailed), whereasplacebosremainedwithin standard error. Conclusions Antisocialbehaviour in prisons, including violence, arereducedby vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids with similar implications for those eating poordiets in the community. Declaration of interest The researchwas supported by a grant from theresearch charity Natural Justice (see Acknowledgements) andmanaged from the Universityof Surrey.Scotia Pharmaceuticals Ltd and Unigreg Ltd suppliednutritional supplements. Most research into factors involved in anti-social behaviour investigates societal factors. This has produced important corre-lational evidence but does not demonstrate that such factors have causal relationships with antisocial behaviour, as this requires more rigorous experimental designs (Altman, 1991; Rutter, 1995). Such designs are difficult to achieve in sociological research, which leaves questions of volition, culpability, prevention and rehabilitation open, if cause and effect are more precisely understood. It is noteworthy that a Director of the US National Institute of Mental Health suggested that treatment pro-grammes for offenders tend not to be rigor-ously evaluated: ‘It’s easy to fool yourselves about efficacy if you haven’t done a proper clinical trial ’ (Marshal, 2000). It has, how-ever, been suggested that deeper knowledge of the biology of antisocial behaviours will help interventions (Stone & Kelner, 2000).

It has been almost 20 years since the first report about a disease that we now call AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) was published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Shortly thereafter, serological testing to detect evidence of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was developed, and guidelines were published for HIV counseling and testing. Today, the majority of HIV testing is performed in a broad range of medical care settings and not at publicly funded testing sites. 1 With the availability of more effective therapies, HIV testing has become even more important in preventive intervention. The major benefits of HIV testing are (1) the referral of HIV-seropositive persons for medical evaluation and treatment and other social services and (2) counseling to promote the necessary changes in behavior to reduce HIV transmission. Physicians play an essential role in this public health effort: as the principal providers of primary health care, the general public most frequently names them as the desired source for HIV testing. 2 Despite the accumulated information on the importance of HIV testing, the majority of recent medical school graduates have had no training on HIV pretest and posttest counseling. It is not surprising then that, as Freedberg and Samet recently wrote, “a passive approach to HIV testing prevails in many clinical settings. ” 3 In June 2000, we surveyed the incoming internal medicine interns (categorical, primary care, transitional, and preliminary programs) of Emory University about their experience with and knowledge of HIV testing. Among these 71 recent graduates from 41 medical schools, only 13 % had received any formal training on HIV pretest and posttest counseling as part of their medical school curriculum. The majority of these trainings were brief, lasting only a couple of hours. Additionally, their clinical rotations did not prepare them with the necessary skills and experience. Only 24 % had ever given a patient an HIVpositive result, with most having done so only once (range, 1-3 patients). While most responded that they felt comfortable discussing HIV and offering an HIV test to a patient, no one felt “completely comfortable ” giving positive test results, and 37 % felt uncomfortable doing so. Knowledge of HIV testing guidelines was also weak.

Facing Title V permit constraints  

SciTech Connect

The new Title V operating permit requirement under state regulations pursuant to the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments will cover every emission source at a facility. These rules will significantly affect an operation by setting minimum compliance requirements, mandating periodic compliance certification, prescribing complex monitoring, record keeping and reporting procedures and making state and EPA approval of routine operational changes necessary through a permit amendment. The main concern with Title V is its effect on the operational flexibility of a facility, and individual emission sources within that facility. Unless properly addressed in a permit document, the term operational flexibility, so freely used by regulators in the context of the Title V program, can turn into a misnomer and the ability to operate as before may be significantly compromised under Title V. True operational flexibility is essential for businesses to respond to real changes in the marketplace. In the age of automation, just-in-time inventories and increased competition, flexibility to operate can mean the difference between growth and stagnation.

Semantic priming in deep-phonological dyslexia: contrasting effects of association and similarity upon abstract and concrete word reading.  

PubMed

We report a series of experiments investigating the reading abilities of a patient R.O.M. who exhibited the syndrome of deep-phonological dyslexia. In a series of semantic priming tasks, R.O.M. was requested to read word lists containing either abstract or concrete words, which were related by semantic similarity or semantic association, or which shared no clear semantic relationship. R.O.M. read semantically similar concrete words significantly more accurately than unrelated items, but showed no such advantage for semantically associated concrete words. By contrast, semantically associated abstract words were read significantly more accurately than unrelated items, but there was no evidence of priming for semantically similar abstract words. Thus, we describe an attempt to harness semantic priming to find converging evidence for a distinction between the representational frameworks underpinning abstract and concrete concepts. The findings are considered in the context of competing theories of the abstract/concrete distinction. PMID:18416510

The effects of Title IV of the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 on electric utilities: An update  

SciTech Connect

This report presents data and analyses related to Phase I implementation of the Clean Air Act Amendment by electric utilities. It describes the strategies used to comply with the Acid Rain Program in 1995, the effect of compliance on sulfur dioxide emissions levels, the cost of compliance, and the effects of the program on coal supply and demand. The first year of Phase I demonstrated that the market-based sulfur dioxide emissions control system could achieve significant reductions in emissions at lower than expected costs. Some utilities reduced aggregate emissions below legal requirements due to economic incentives; other utilities purchased additional allowances to avoid noncompliance. More than half of the utilities switched to or blended with lower sulfur coal, due to price reductions in the coal market which were partially due to the allowance trading program. 21 figs., 20 tabs.

(abstract) A Polarimetric Model for Effects of Brine Infiltrated Snow Cover and Frost Flowers on Sea Ice Backscatter  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A polarimetric scattering model is developed to study effects of snow cover and frost flowers with brine infiltration on thin sea ice. Leads containing thin sea ice in the Artic icepack are important to heat exchange with the atmosphere and salt flux into the upper ocean. Surface characteristics of thin sea ice in leads are dominated by the formation of frost flowers with high salinity. In many cases, the thin sea ice layer is covered by snow, which wicks up brine from sea ice due to capillary force. Snow and frost flowers have a significant impact on polarimetric signatures of thin ice, which needs to be studied for accessing the retrieval of geophysical parameters such as ice thickness. Frost flowers or snow layer is modeled with a heterogeneous mixture consisting of randomly oriented ellipsoids and brine infiltration in an air background. Ice crystals are characterized with three different axial lengths to depict the nonspherical shape. Under the covering multispecies medium, the columinar sea-ice layer is an inhomogeneous anisotropic medium composed of ellipsoidal brine inclusions preferentially oriented in the vertical direction in an ice background. The underlying medium is homogeneous sea water. This configuration is described with layered inhomogeneous media containing multiple species of scatterers. The species are allowed to have different size, shape, and permittivity. The strong permittivity fluctuation theory is extended to account for the multispecies in the derivation of effective permittivities with distributions of scatterer orientations characterized by Eulerian rotation angles. Polarimetric backscattering coefficients are obtained consistently with the same physical description used in the effective permittivity calculation. The mulitspecies model allows the inclusion of high-permittivity species to study effects of brine infiltrated snow cover and frost flowers on thin ice. The results suggest that the frost cover with a rough interface significantly increases the backscatter from thin saline ice and the polarimetric signature becomes closer to the isotropic characteristics. The snow cover also modifies polarimetric signatures of thin sea ice depending on the snow mixture and the interface condition.

The Title V guidance notebook  

SciTech Connect

In October 1997, the Air and Waste Management Association (A and WMA) made available a notebook consisting of documents pertaining to implementation of the operating permits program required by title V of the Clean Air Act and the Environmental Protection Agency`s (EPA) part 70 operating permits regulations. The documents include guidance memos/letters, questions/answers, several specialty documents, and related Federal Register notices that have been produced by EPA since inception of the program with the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990. The notebook contents were made available by EPA and the project was carried out under an EPA contract to A and WMA. The work was performed by RTP Environmental Associates Inc. of Raleigh, North Carolina. The notebook contains more than 75 documents; all the materials EPA believes relevant to implementation of the part 70 program by States, local agencies, territories, and Indian tribes. The documents that comprise the notebook are organized by subject matter and each is given a reference number for purposes of referring to the document. The part 70 operating permits regulations are annotated with document reference numbers to indicate where a document relates to a specific section of the regulations. In addition, documents are indexed four ways; by date, by author, alphabetically by title, and by reference number. Abstracts of each document are included in the notebook to allow the user to determine if the document is of interest. The notebook user, therefore, should be able to readily locate documents and be aware of all materials that affect any area of interest the user may have. The notebook will periodically be updated to add any new materials generated since the last update. The notebook should also be of interest to sources who must obtain a part 70 operating permit and to the general public interested in following implementation of the program. Notebooks may be purchased from A and WMA.

Effects of abstract versus concrete visual representations in an instructional simulation on students' declarative knowledge, learning transfer, and perceptions of the simulation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Thanks to different multimedia authoring tools and specialized software that facilitate the design and development of computer-based simulations, science teachers and instructional media designers have a variety of simulations to support instructional delivery. However, there is a lack of research on how instructional designers and science teachers can select, design, and implement science simulations most effectively based on the simulations' visual attributes. One of the design principles that play an important part in the simulation design process is the visual representation of on-screen objects used to describe science concepts or principles. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of abstract and concrete visual representation of electricity concepts and principles in an instructional simulation on students' declarative knowledge, learning transfer, and perceptions of the simulation. The participants in this study were 39 elementary education pre-service teachers who were randomly assigned to either the concrete or the abstract treatment. The educational intervention was conducted over three 100-minute sessions. Since the sample violated the normality assumption, Mann-Whitney tests were conducted to verify whether the independent variable had significant effects on the three dependent variables. The data analysis found no statistically significant difference on learners' declarative knowledge, learning transfer, and perceptions about the simulation's attributes between those assigned to the concrete treatment and those assigned to the abstract treatment (p>.05). This finding did not favor one type of visual representation over the other.

EBS Radionuclide Transport Abstraction  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this work is to develop the Engineered Barrier System (EBS) radionuclide transport abstraction model, as directed by a written development plan (CRWMS M&O 1999a). This abstraction is the conceptual model that will be used to determine the rate of release of radionuclides from the EBS to the unsaturated zone (UZ) in the total system performance assessment-license application (TSPA-LA). In particular, this model will be used to quantify the time-dependent radionuclide releases from a failed waste package (WP) and their subsequent transport through the EBS to the emplacement drift wall/UZ interface. The development of this conceptual model will allow Performance Assessment Operations (PAO) and its Engineered Barrier Performance Department to provide a more detailed and complete EBS flow and transport abstraction. The results from this conceptual model will allow PA0 to address portions of the key technical issues (KTIs) presented in three NRC Issue Resolution Status Reports (IRSRs): (1) the Evolution of the Near-Field Environment (ENFE), Revision 2 (NRC 1999a), (2) the Container Life and Source Term (CLST), Revision 2 (NRC 1999b), and (3) the Thermal Effects on Flow (TEF), Revision 1 (NRC 1998). The conceptual model for flow and transport in the EBS will be referred to as the ''EBS RT Abstraction'' in this analysis/modeling report (AMR). The scope of this abstraction and report is limited to flow and transport processes. More specifically, this AMR does not discuss elements of the TSPA-SR and TSPA-LA that relate to the EBS but are discussed in other AMRs. These elements include corrosion processes, radionuclide solubility limits, waste form dissolution rates and concentrations of colloidal particles that are generally represented as boundary conditions or input parameters for the EBS RT Abstraction. In effect, this AMR provides the algorithms for transporting radionuclides using the flow geometry and radionuclide concentrations determined by other elements of the TSPA-SR model. The scope of the EBS RT Abstraction also does not include computational or numerical procedures for solving the process-level equations; rather, it identifies the important processes that must then be evaluated with process-level or component-level software using analytical or numerical solutions.

State of competition in gasoline marketing. The effects of refiner operation at retail (a study required by Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act)  

SciTech Connect

Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act requires the Secretary of Energy to report to the Congress on the extent to which producers, refiners, and other suppliers of motor fuel subsidize the sale of such fuel at retail or wholesale with profits obtained from other operations. This is Part I of the report required under that Title. It addresses a number of questions relating to the central issue - the state of competition in the gasoline marketing industry. Part II of the report, to be issued this fall, will discuss the subpoenaed documents of nine integrated companies, and will contain recommendations for action, if deemed necessary. The basic thrust of Part I is an examination of three issues: (1) Are integrated refiners subsidizing their company operated gasoline retail outlets; (2) Are integrated refiners moving gasoline away from their branded dealer network into their own retail outlets; and (3) Are integrated refiners manipulating the allocation system in favor of their own retail outlets to the detriment of other gasoline marketers. At a series of regional hearings, independent marketers charged that integrated refiners were engaging in each of these practices. In essence, integrated refiners were portrayed as using unfair or illegal competitive practices which would ultimately lead to their domination of retail gasoline markets. This report addresses each allegation, after providing a historical and theoretical framework for today's debate.

Optimizing operational flexibility and enforcement liability in Title V permits  

SciTech Connect

Now that most states have interim or full approval of the portions of their state implementation plans (SIPs) implementing Title V (40 CFR Part 70) of the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), most sources which require a Title V permit have submitted or are well on the way to submitting a Title V operating permit application. Numerous hours have been spent preparing applications to ensure the administrative completeness of the application and operational flexibility for the facility. Although much time and effort has been spent on Title V permit applications, the operating permit itself is the final goal. This paper outlines the major Federal requirements for Title V permits as given in the CAAA at 40 CFR 70.6, Permit Content. These Federal requirements and how they will effect final Title V permits and facilities will be discussed. This paper will provide information concerning the Federal requirements for Title V permits and suggestions on how to negotiate a Title V permit to maximize operational flexibility and minimize enforcement liability.

Effect of metal ions on the reactions of the cumyloxyl radical with hydrogen atom donors. Fine control on hydrogen abstraction reactivity determined by Lewis acid-base interactions.  

PubMed

A time-resolved kinetic study on the effect of metal ions (M(n+)) on hydrogen abstraction reactions from C-H donor substrates by the cumyloxyl radical (CumO(•)) was carried out in acetonitrile. Metal salt addition was observed to increase the CumO(•) ?-scission rate constant in the order Li(+) > Mg(2+) > Na(+). These effects were explained in terms of the stabilization of the ?-scission transition state determined by Lewis acid-base interactions between M(n+) and the radical. When hydrogen abstraction from 1,4-cyclohexadiene was studied in the presence of LiClO(4) and Mg(ClO(4))(2), a slight increase in rate constant (k(H)) was observed indicating that interaction between M(n+) and CumO(•) can also influence, although to a limited extent, the hydrogen abstraction reactivity of alkoxyl radicals. With Lewis basic C-H donors such as THF and tertiary amines, a decrease in k(H) with increasing Lewis acidity of M(n+) was observed (k(H)(MeCN) > k(H)(Li(+)) > k(H)(Mg(2+))). This behavior was explained in terms of the stronger Lewis acid-base interaction of M(n+) with the substrate as compared to the radical. This interaction reduces the degree of overlap between the ?-C-H ?* orbital and a heteroatom lone-pair, increasing the C-H BDE and destabilizing the carbon centered radical formed after abstraction. With tertiary amines, a >2-order of magnitude decrease in k(H) was measured after Mg(ClO(4))(2) addition up to a 1.5:1 amine/Mg(ClO(4))(2) ratio. At higher amine concentrations, very similar k(H) values were measured with and without Mg(ClO(4))(2). These results clearly show that with strong Lewis basic substrates variations in the nature and concentration of M(n+) can dramatically influence k(H), allowing for a fine control of the substrate hydrogen atom donor ability, thus providing a convenient method for C-H deactivation. The implications and generality of these findings are discussed. PMID:23215017

Integrated Title V/acid rain permits: Transitioning through initial permit issuance and reopenings  

SciTech Connect

Titles IV and V of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (Act or CAA) created two new stationary source permitting programs, one specific to acid rain (Title IV), and a second for operating permits in general (Title V). The Phase 2 portion of the acid rain program was designed to be implemented through the Title V operating permit program, thereby subjecting all Phase 2 acid rain sources to the requirements of Title V. Permits issued pursuant to Phase 2 of the acid rain program will be viewed as a self-contained portion of the Title V operating permit and will be governed by regulations promulgated under both Title IV and Title V. The requirements imposed by Title IV may not always be consistent with the broader operating permit program requirements of Title V, and when inconsistency occurs, the acid rain requirements will take precedence. This nonalignment will perhaps be most apparent during two stages of initial permitting: (1) the transition period following Title V program approval when permit application, issuance, and effective dates differ between the two programs, and (2) at the point when acid rain permits must be reopened to incorporate Phase 2 NO{sub x} requirements. This paper explores strategies for streamlining implementation of the two programs with particular focus on these two coordination issues.

Automatic Abstraction in Planning  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Traditionally, abstraction in planning has been accomplished by either state abstraction or operator abstraction, neither of which has been fully automatic. We present a new method, predicate relaxation, for automatically performing state abstraction. PABLO, a nonlinear hierarchical planner, implements predicate relaxation. Theoretical, as well as empirical results are presented which demonstrate the potential advantages of using predicate relaxation in planning. We also present a new definition of hierarchical operators that allows us to guarantee a limited form of completeness. This new definition is shown to be, in some ways, more flexible than previous definitions of hierarchical operators. Finally, a Classical Truth Criterion is presented that is proven to be sound and complete for a planning formalism that is general enough to include most classical planning formalisms that are based on the STRIPS assumption.

Metacognition and abstract reasoning.  

PubMed

The nature of people's meta-representations of deductive reasoning is critical to understanding how people control their own reasoning processes. We conducted two studies to examine whether people have a metacognitive representation of abstract validity and whether familiarity alone acts as a separate metacognitive cue. In Study 1, participants were asked to make a series of (1) abstract conditional inferences, (2) concrete conditional inferences with premises having many potential alternative antecedents and thus specifically conducive to the production of responses consistent with conditional logic, or (3) concrete problems with premises having relatively few potential alternative antecedents. Participants gave confidence ratings after each inference. Results show that confidence ratings were positively correlated with logical performance on abstract problems and concrete problems with many potential alternatives, but not with concrete problems with content less conducive to normative responses. Confidence ratings were higher with few alternatives than for abstract content. Study 2 used a generation of contrary-to-fact alternatives task to improve levels of abstract logical performance. The resulting increase in logical performance was mirrored by increases in mean confidence ratings. Results provide evidence for a metacognitive representation based on logical validity, and show that familiarity acts as a separate metacognitive cue. PMID:25416026

Abstraction and art.  

PubMed Central

In a given social context, artistic creation comprises a set of processes, which relate to the activity of the artist and the activity of the spectator. Through these processes we see and understand that the world is vaster than it is said to be. Artistic processes are mediated experiences that open up the world. A successful work of art expresses a reality beyond actual reality: it suggests an unknown world using the means and the signs of the known world. Artistic practices incorporate the means of creation developed by science and technology and change forms as they change. Artists and the public follow different processes of abstraction at different levels, in the definition of the means of creation, of representation and of perception of a work of art. This paper examines how the processes of abstraction are used within the framework of the visual arts and abstract painting, which appeared during a period of growing importance for the processes of abstraction in science and technology, at the beginning of the twentieth century. The development of digital platforms and new man-machine interfaces allow multimedia creations. This is performed under the constraint of phases of multidisciplinary conceptualization using generic representation languages, which tend to abolish traditional frontiers between the arts: visual arts, drama, dance and music.

Conformational Effects on the pro-S Hydrogen Abstraction Reaction in Cyclooxygenase-1: An Integrated QM/MM and MD Study  

PubMed Central

A key step in the cyclooxygenase reaction cycle of cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) is abstraction of the pro-S hydrogen atom of the arachidonic acid by a radical that is formed at the protein residue Tyr-385. Here we investigate this reaction step by a quantum-mechanics/molecular-mechanics approach in combination with molecular-dynamics simulations. The simulations identify the hydrogen abstraction angle as a crucial geometric determinant of the reaction, thus revealing the importance of the cyclooxygenase active site for calculating the potential energy surface of the reaction.

Impacts of Title IV in Maryland  

SciTech Connect

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources` Power Plant Research Program has evaluated the environmental effects of acid deposition on Maryland`s air, land, water (especially the Chesapeake Bay), and human resources since the mid-1980`s. Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA90) has focused much attention on the mandated reductions of nitrogen oxides (NO{sub x}) and sulfur dioxide (SO{sub 2}) to control acid deposition. Baseline data on acidic deposition and air emissions/pollution control for NO{sub x} and SO{sub 2} acquired through PPRP studies have proved useful in evaluating the impacts of Title IV on Maryland power plants and resources. Three example programs are discussed: The first is an evaluation of SO{sub 2} emissions on ecosystems through the use of critical loads--the amount of acid rain that an ecosystem can tolerate without continuing to acidify. Results support the use of broadly based emissions trading scenarios: The second study is an evaluation of the potential for reducing nitrate loading in the Chesapeake Bay by reducing NO{sub x} emissions. Results indicate substantial NO{sub x} emission reductions could offer significant reductions in nitrate deposition to the Bay: The final study is a review of the impacts of Title IV on the Maryland coal industry and the prospects for coal cleaning and advanced combustion technologies. Current results indicate that Maryland coal will meet Phase 2 SO{sub 2} emission standards using advanced combustion techniques, such as fluidized bed technologies, but that additional emissions controls, such as a scrubber would be required in a conventional boiler.

An analysis of the effects on precipitation chemistry of Phase I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, Title IV  

SciTech Connect

Sulfate and free hydrogen ion concentrations in precipitation decreased 10 to 25 percent over large areas of the eastern United States in 1995. The largest decreases in both ions occurred in and downwind of the Ohio River Valley, the same area where Phase I of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments set limitations, effective January 1, 1995, on sulfur dioxide emissions from affected coal-fired sources. Based on the authors analysis of precipitation chemistry and emissions data, they conclude that substantial declines in acid rain occurred in the eastern United States in 1995 because of large reductions in sulfur dioxide emissions in the same region.

EBS Radionuclide Transport Abstraction  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this report is to develop and analyze the engineered barrier system (EBS) radionuclide transport abstraction model, consistent with Level I and Level II model validation, as identified in Technical Work Plan for: Near-Field Environment and Transport: Engineered Barrier System: Radionuclide Transport Abstraction Model Report Integration (BSC 2005 [DIRS 173617]). The EBS radionuclide transport abstraction (or EBS RT Abstraction) is the conceptual model used in the total system performance assessment (TSPA) to determine the rate of radionuclide releases from the EBS to the unsaturated zone (UZ). The EBS RT Abstraction conceptual model consists of two main components: a flow model and a transport model. Both models are developed mathematically from first principles in order to show explicitly what assumptions, simplifications, and approximations are incorporated into the models used in the TSPA. The flow model defines the pathways for water flow in the EBS and specifies how the flow rate is computed in each pathway. Input to this model includes the seepage flux into a drift. The seepage flux is potentially split by the drip shield, with some (or all) of the flux being diverted by the drip shield and some passing through breaches in the drip shield that might result from corrosion or seismic damage. The flux through drip shield breaches is potentially split by the waste package, with some (or all) of the flux being diverted by the waste package and some passing through waste package breaches that might result from corrosion or seismic damage. Neither the drip shield nor the waste package survives an igneous intrusion, so the flux splitting submodel is not used in the igneous scenario class. The flow model is validated in an independent model validation technical review. The drip shield and waste package flux splitting algorithms are developed and validated using experimental data. The transport model considers advective transport and diffusive transport from a breached waste package. Advective transport occurs when radionuclides that are dissolved or sorbed onto colloids (or both) are carried from the waste package by the portion of the seepage flux that passes through waste package breaches. Diffusive transport occurs as a result of a gradient in radionuclide concentration and may take place while advective transport is also occurring, as well as when no advective transport is occurring. Diffusive transport is addressed in detail because it is the sole means of transport when there is no flow through a waste package, which may dominate during the regulatory compliance period in the nominal and seismic scenarios. The advective transport rate, when it occurs, is generally greater than the diffusive transport rate. Colloid-facilitated advective and diffusive transport is also modeled and is presented in detail in Appendix B of this report.

Preparing the CAA Title V operating permit application  

SciTech Connect

The CAA amendments contain 11 new and amended titles, including enhanced non-attainment area provisions, additional conditions for controlling hazardous air pollutants, expanded monitoring and record keeping requirements, and increased enforcement authority. The cornerstone of the regulation is the operating permits program (Title V). In the past, permits have been issued to construct or modify sources, and some sources have been permitted in states with operating permit programs. Such programs will remain in effect. However, under the new CAA, most emissions sources will be required to have an operating permit. Title V's permit provision initially affects about 34,000 major facilities and may affect another 350,000 smaller sources in the future. The amendments also increase the number of regulated pollutants from 21 to about 200. Operating permits limit emissions from manufacturing operations, and place further restrictions on raw materials and products.

Abstraction of Seepage into Drifts  

SciTech Connect

The abstraction model used for seepage into emplacement drifts in recent TSPA simulations has been presented. This model contributes to the calculation of the quantity of water that might contact waste if it is emplaced at Yucca Mountain. Other important components of that calculation not discussed here include models for climate, infiltration, unsaturated-zone flow, and thermohydrology; drip-shield and waste-package degradation; and flow around and through the drip shield and waste package. The seepage abstraction model is stochastic because predictions of seepage are necessarily quite uncertain. The model provides uncertainty distributions for seepage fraction fraction of waste-package locations flow rate as functions of percolation flux. In addition, effects of intermediate-scale flow with seepage and seep channeling are included by means of a flow-focusing factor, which is also represented by an uncertainty distribution.

Abstract Vitamin C  

E-print Network

Proponents of evidence-based medicine emphasize that conclusions about the effects of interventions should be based on controlled trials with clinically relevant outcomes, and not on studies measuring laboratory markers or on epidemiological studies. Studies with laboratory outcomes are often unreliable because the effects on surrogate outcomes (e.g. measurements of laboratory markers of the immune system) can substantially differ from the effects on clinically relevant outcomes. Epidemiological studies often measure clinically relevant outcomes, but unknown differences between the study groups could explain the observed differences in the outcome. Therefore, my work on vitamin C has focused on controlled trials with clinically relevant outcomes. In our systematic review on vitamin C supplementation and the common cold (1), we combined the results of 24 trial comparisons involving 10,708 participants of the general community who had been administered prophylactically ?0.2 g/day of vitamin C. The pooled risk ratio (RR) of colds, RR=0.97 (95 % Cl: 0.94 to 1.00), indicates that there is no evidence that regular vitamin C supplementation might reduce the risk of colds in the general community. However, five trials involving a total of 598 marathon runners, skiers, and soldiers on sub-arctic exercises yielded a pooled RR = 0.48 (0.35 to 0.64) for common cold incidence, indicating benefit for such people. Thus, there may be substantial heterogeneity in the effect of vitamin

I. The Board recognizes that parent involvement contributes to the achievement of academic standards by students participating in district programs. The Board views the education of students as a cooperative effort among school, parents and community. The Board expects that its schools will carry out programs, activities and procedures in accordance with the statutory definition of parental involvement. Parental involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring that parents: A. Play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning; B. Are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school; and C. Are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child. II. The board of directors adopts as part of this policy the following guidance for parent involvement. The District shall: A. Put into operation programs, activities and procedures for the involvement of parents in all of its Title I schools consistent with federal laws including the development and evaluation of policy. Those programs, activities and procedures will be planned and operated with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children; B. Provide the coordination, technical assistance, and other support necessary to assist participating schools in the planning and implementing of effective parent involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance. C. Build the schools ’ and parents ’ capacity for strong parental involvement; D. Coordinate and integrate Title I parental involvement strategies with parent involvement strategies under other programs, such as Head Start, Reading First, Early

First principles calculations of the Kerr effect in MnBi, MnSb, and Mn2BiSb (abstract)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

First principles electronic structure calculations are used to predict the energy dependence of the polar Kerr effect in MnBi, MnSb, and a Mn2BiSb alloy. The compounds all have respectable Kerr angles and thus are potential data storage media. The technique used in this work is a full-potential linearized augmented Slater orbital approach. The Kerr angle is obtained from the conductivity tensor that is calculated, within linear response theory, using the Kubo formula. There are several desirable features in this approach. First, unlike methods based upon muffin-tin potentials, open crystal structures present no problems. Second, since the electronic wave functions are defined over the crystal unit cell rather than over space filling overlapping spheres, difficulties in handling the interstitial part of the required matrix elements are avoided. Finally, the small basis set (25 orbitals per atom) leads to reasonable computational times. Results of these calculations show that the Kerr angle in MnBi is above 1° at 1.6 eV and that its variation over 2-4 eV is linear and decreasing. MnSb shows a smaller rotation, about 0.5°, that is almost constant up to 3 eV and then also decreases linearly. The Kerr rotation of Mn2BiSb is approximately the average of MnBi and MnSb. This work has been supported in part by the Louisiana Quality Education Support Fund under Grant No. LEQSF (1991-1994)-RD-A-30.

Effects of landscape composition and wetland fragmentation on frog and toad abundance and species richness in Iowa and Wisconsin, USA [abstract  

USGS Publications Warehouse

We examined the relationships between anuran diversity and landscape features in the Upper Midwestern United States. Anuran relative abundance and species richness were measured using data collected by Wisconsin and Iowa state calling surveys conducted from 1990-1995. Landscape features surrounding survey points were determined using National Wetland Inventory and Wisconsin Wetland Inventory maps. We tested several hypotheses suggested by the literature. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans that breed in ephemeral wetlands is positively correlated with the surrounding area of temporary wetlands and emergent wetlands. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans is positively correlated with patch diversity and wetland edges, in the absence of local fragmentation effects. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans is positively associated with forests but negatively associated with agriculture and urban areas. Our results show that the interspersion of different wetland types and the concomitant increase in wetland edge habitats were generally positive for frogs and toads and anuran abundance and diversity were generally higher in association with forests, especially forested wetlands. The presence of agriculture did not always depress frog and toad populations or diversity; some species were associated with agricultural landscapes. The two states differed in how anurans were associated with landscape features like lakes and permanent wetlands. We found that frog and toad relative abundance and diversity were lower when urban areas were present. Managers can use models like ours, generated from landscape analyses, along with range maps and population trend analyses to get a comprehensive picture of the health of individual species and groups of species. Our models could be applied to the landscape as a whole, and used to predict species relative abundance and richness at new locations. Our work provides a framework for future experimental and intensive research on specific factors affecting the health of amphibians in the Upper Midwest.

Abstract DNA-type systems  

E-print Network

An abstract DNA-type system is defined by a set of nonlinear kinetic equations with polynomial nonlinearities that admit soliton solutions associated with helical geometry. The set of equations allows for two different Lax representations: A von Neumann form and a Darboux-covariant Lax pair. We explain why non-Kolmogorovian probability models occurring in soliton kinetics are naturally associated with chemical reactions. The most general known characterization of soliton kinetic equations is given and a class of explicit soliton solutions is discussed. Switching between open and closed states is a generic behaviour of the helices. The effect does not crucially depend on the order of nonlinearity (i.e. types of reactions), a fact that may explain why simplified models possess properties occuring in realistic systems. We explain also why fluctuations based on Darboux transformations will not destroy the dynamics but only switch between a finite number of helical structures.

A sensitive and rapid method (an ion exchanger batchwise procedure) was developed for the estimation of SP degradation using ~H-[Nleu]-SP as tracer. With this method a relatively high degrading activity in tested regions of rat brain was found in the microsomal, crude mitochondrial and soluble fractions of the striatum. The synaptosomes purified from spinal cord and different parts of rat

The collision of Title III and Title V: A potential permitting and enforcement nightmare  

SciTech Connect

The Clean Air Act of 1990 (CAA) mandated that all facilities classified as major were to obtain a Federal Title V operating permit. In addition, any facility, either major or minor, which emits certain chemicals or compounds above a specific single quantity limit or a total aggregate limit are subject to Title III requirements and are required to obtain a Title V permit as well. The problem with obtaining a Title V permit for Title III substances is there is limited data, at least for the utilities sources, on emission factors and emission rates for many of the Title III listed chemical compounds. In addition, the emission data that exists is very conservative, and if used, would show the facilities to be significant emitters of hazardous air emissions, while actual emissions are significantly less. This could lead a facility to applying for a Title V permit unnecessarily, a time consuming process at best. In Iowa, facilities submitted the first Title V permit applications in 1994. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is currently in the process of reviewing the submittals prior to issuing operating permits. Title III has not been addressed at all in the submittals and therefore will not be included in this round of finished permits that are to be issued. The outcome of this is that the Title V permits will have to be opened and amended to include the applicable Title III operating conditions and constraints. This paper will examine the areas where Title III and Title V collide and the potential permitting and enforcement issues that will have to be faced by the facilities that operate under these permits. This paper is based on the opinions of two of the three responsible parties (facilities and consultants) that are dealing with the potential permitting and enforcement wreckage before the collision occurs.

Database abstractions: aggregation and generalization  

Microsoft Academic Search

Two kinds of abstraction that are fundamentally important in database design and usage are defined. Aggregation is an abstraction which turns a relationship between objects into an aggregate object. Generalization is an abstraction which turns a class of objects into a generic object. It is suggested that all objects (individual, aggregate, generic) should be given uniform treatment in models of

What every designated representative should know about Title IV and Title V enforcement provisions  

SciTech Connect

Title IV of the Clean Air Act not only created a regulatory program unlike any other under the Clean Air Act, but also established a unique position--the designated representative--as an integral part of the program. The designated representative is required to meet certain basic obligations under Title IV, and a panoply of enforcement mechanisms are available to EPA in the event of noncompliance with these obligations. Also, because a designated representative may take on responsibilities under the permit provisions of Title V of the Clean Air Act, the designated representative can also be subject to an enforcement action for failure to comply with certain Title V permit requirements. This paper considers the basic definition of the designated representative under EPA`s Title IV and Title V regulations, identifies the responsibilities assigned to the designated representative, and then analyzes the enforcement mechanisms that may be applied to the designated representative if a regulatory responsibility has not been satisfied.

State of competition in gasoline marketing. Part I. Effects of refiner operations at retail (a study required by Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act). Volume III. Appendix D, excerpts from Title III hearings, and Appendix E, data collection forms and subpoena specifications  

SciTech Connect

The first section of this digest deals with the documentation of alleged subsidization by refiners and wholesalers presented at the regional hearings. A series of attachments contains the quantitative data, as well as responses from companies accused of subsidization. The second section focuses on the costs of marketing gasoline. A significant element in any discussion of subsidization is the relationship between selling price, operating costs, and the volume of gasoline sold. Are integrated marketers using profits from one segment of their operations to offset losses incurred at the retail marketing level as a result of selling below cost. As the testimony reveals, there is a wide range in the perceived marketing costs by different types of marketers. The third section relates to the impacts of DOE regulations on the behavior of different gasoline marketers. Much of the testimony at the regional hearings dealt with competitive problems, including instances of government induced subsidization, created by DOE's price and allocation regulations. The final section compiles the proposed remedies suggested by various witnesses at the hearings. These proposals included: A. divorcement or divestiture of refiner and wholesaler operated retail outlets, B. decontrol of motor gasoline, C. functional accounting for retail marketing operations, and D. the establishment of rack pricing for all gasoline marketers. We believe that the following distillation of the testimony presented at the regional hearings on Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act is indicative of the perceived competitive problems confronted by various gasoline retailers, wholesalers, and refiners in today's marketplace.

Engineering scale mixing system tests for MWTF title II design  

SciTech Connect

Mixing tests for the Multifunction Waste Tank Facility (MWTF) were conducted in 1/25 and 1/10 scale test tanks with different slurry levels, solids concentrations, different jet mixers and with simulated in-tank structures. The same test procedure was used as in the Title I program, documented in WHC-SD-W236A-ER-005. The test results support the scaling correlation derived previously in the Title I program. The tests also concluded that a partially filled tank requires less mixing power, and horizontal and angled jets in combination (H/A mixer) are significantly more effective than the two horizontal jet mixers (H/H mixer) when used for mixing slurry with a high solids concentrations.

Abstraction in perceptual symbol systems.  

PubMed Central

After reviewing six senses of abstraction, this article focuses on abstractions that take the form of summary representations. Three central properties of these abstractions are established: ( i ) type-token interpretation; (ii) structured representation; and (iii) dynamic realization. Traditional theories of representation handle interpretation and structure well but are not sufficiently dynamical. Conversely, connectionist theories are exquisitely dynamic but have problems with structure. Perceptual symbol systems offer an approach that implements all three properties naturally. Within this framework, a loose collection of property and relation simulators develops to represent abstractions. Type-token interpretation results from binding a property simulator to a region of a perceived or simulated category member. Structured representation results from binding a configuration of property and relation simulators to multiple regions in an integrated manner. Dynamic realization results from applying different subsets of property and relation simulators to category members on different occasions. From this standpoint, there are no permanent or complete abstractions of a category in memory. Instead, abstraction is the skill to construct temporary online interpretations of a category's members. Although an infinite number of abstractions are possible, attractors develop for habitual approaches to interpretation. This approach provides new ways of thinking about abstraction phenomena in categorization, inference, background knowledge and learning. PMID:12903648

The preparation for and survival of an EPA Title IV and Title V facility audit  

SciTech Connect

As part of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, major facilities are required to obtain federally enforceable operating permits (Title V). In a separate permitting action, the electric utilities with units generating more then 25 megawatts are required to obtain permits for NO{sub x} and SO{sub x}, the emissions which contribute to acid rain (Title IV). The Title IV permit is included as part of the Title V permit. This paper will use an actual audit experience at a coal fired generation facility as a case study for the preparation for and outcome of an EPA Title IV Level 3 audit. The paper will document the procedures for preparation, the audit process, and the outcome. The audit is part of the EPA's process for review of the record keeping and instrument calibration methods outlined in Title IV. Both types of permits have many different record keeping and monitoring requirements as well as separate reporting requirements which are submitted to both federal; state and local regulatory agencies for review and evaluation. Title IV units include very specific instrument calibration/audit requirements, and Title V has compliance testing and monitoring requirements. Alliant Power was notified in August 1998 of the intent of EPA Region VII to conduct a Level 3 audit at the Lansing Generation Station. The US EPA and the State of Iowa intended to review all Title IV record keeping (Level 1), continuous emission monitoring calibrations and linearity testing (Level 2) and observe the annual Relative Accuracy Testing Audit performed by an outside contractor. In addition, during this facility site visit, the compliance with Title V permit requirements was also audited.

Understanding Abstractions of Secure Channels  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Many security architectures make use of layered security protocols, where a special-purpose application protocol is layered on top of a general-purpose secure transport protocol. When analysing such an architecture, it makes sense to abstract away from the implementation details of the secure transport protocol and just model the services it provides. But is this abstraction sound, or might it risk losing attacks? This is the question we consider in this paper. We show that - under certain assumptions - the abstraction is sound, in the sense that it correctly models the application-layer behaviour as seen by honest principals.

Finding Feasible Abstract Counter-Examples  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A strength of model checking is its ability to automate the detection of subtle system errors and produce traces that exhibit those errors. Given the high computational cost of model checking most researchers advocate the use of aggressive property-preserving abstractions. Unfortunately, the more aggressively a system is abstracted the more infeasible behavior it will have. Thus, while abstraction enables efficient model checking it also threatens the usefulness of model checking as a defect detection tool, since it may be difficult to determine whether a counter-example is feasible and hence worth developer time to analyze. We have explored several strategies for addressing this problem by extending an explicit-state model checker, Java PathFinder (JPF), to search for and analyze counter-examples in the presence of abstractions. We demonstrate that these techniques effectively preserve the defect detection ability of model checking in the presence of aggressive abstraction by applying them to check properties of several abstracted multi-threaded Java programs. These new capabilities are not specific to JPF and can be easily adapted to other model checking frameworks; we describe how this was done for the Bandera toolset.

Abstract models of molecular walkers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recent advances in single-molecule chemistry have led to designs for artificial multi-pedal walkers that follow tracks of chemicals. The walkers, called molecular spiders, consist of a rigid chemically inert body and several flexible enzymatic legs. The legs can reversibly bind to chemical substrates on a surface, and through their enzymatic action convert them to products. We study abstract models of molecular spiders to evaluate how efficiently they can perform two tasks: molecular transport of cargo over tracks and search for targets on finite surfaces. For the single-spider model our simulations show a transient behavior wherein certain spiders move superdiffusively over significant distances and times. This gives the spiders potential as a faster-than-diffusion transport mechanism. However, analysis shows that single-spider motion eventually decays into an ordinary diffusive motion, owing to the ever increasing size of the region of products. Inspired by cooperative behavior of natural molecular walkers, we propose a symmetric exclusion process (SEP) model for multiple walkers interacting as they move over a one-dimensional lattice. We show that when walkers are sequentially released from the origin, the collective effect is to prevent the leading walkers from moving too far backwards. Hence, there is an effective outward pressure on the leading walkers that keeps them moving superdiffusively for longer times. Despite this improvement the leading spider eventually slows down and moves diffusively, similarly to a single spider. The slowdown happens because all spiders behind the leading spiders never encounter substrates, and thus they are never biased. They cannot keep up with leading spiders, and cannot put enough pressure on them. Next, we investigate search properties of a single and multiple spiders moving over one- and two-dimensional surfaces with various absorbing and reflecting boundaries. For the single-spider model we evaluate by how much the slowdown on newly visited sites, owing to catalysis, can improve the mean first passage time of spiders and show that in one dimension, when both ends of the track are an absorbing boundary, the performance gain is lower than in two dimensions, when the absorbing boundary is a circle; this persists even when the absorbing boundary is a single site. Next, we study how multiple molecular spiders influence one another during the search. We show that when one spider reaches the trace of another spider it is more likely not to follow the trace and instead explore unvisited sites. This interaction between the spiders gives them an advantage over independent random walkers in a search for multiple targets. We also study how efficiently the spiders with various gaits are able to find specific targets. Spiders with gaits that allow more freedom of leg movement find their targets faster than spiders with more restrictive gaits. For every gait, there is an optimal detachment rate that minimizes the time to find all target sites.

Review the draft Title V with care  

SciTech Connect

The Title V permitting process is well underway for many industries and just beginning for others. Waste Management recently conducted the first in-depth reviews of draft Title V permits for some of its municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The Company`s comments on the draft permits were numerous. The draft permits contained some obvious as well as several less obvious errors. The results of these reviews identified a need to scrutinize carefully each and every draft permit issued to the Company`s landfills. The Company expects to require Title V permits for most of its 140 plus active landfills, due to the recently-enacted New Source Performance Standards for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. Many issues of concern were encountered during the review. Had these issues not been identified, the facility would have had to live with an unnecessarily burdensome permit consisting of permit conditions that were more strict than the regulations required and lacking protections allowed by the law. This paper discusses many of the issues of concern identified during the draft permit review. Although many of the issues addressed in this paper are specific to MSW landfills, many of the issues are also applicable to Title V permits in general.

High-level direct-dynamics variational transition state theory calculations including multidimensional tunneling of the thermal rate constants, branching ratios, and kinetic isotope effects of the hydrogen abstraction reactions from methanol by atomic hydrogen  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report a detailed theoretical study of the hydrogen abstraction reaction from methanol by atomic hydrogen. The study includes the analysis of thermal rate constants, branching ratios, and kinetic isotope effects. Specifically, we have performed high-level computations at the MC3BB level together with direct dynamics calculations by canonical variational transition state theory (CVT) with the microcanonically optimized multidimensional tunneling (?OMT) transmission coefficient (CVT/?OMT) to study both the CH3OH + H ? CH2OH + H2 (R1) reaction and the CH3OH + H ? CH3O + H2 (R2) reaction. The CVT/?OMT calculations show that reaction R1 dominates in the whole range 298? T(K)? 2500 and that anharmonic effects on the torsional mode about the C-O bond are important, mainly at high temperatures. The activation energy for the total reaction sum of R1 and R2 reactions changes substantially with temperature and, therefore, the use of straight-line Arrhenius plots is not valid. We recommend the use of new expressions for the total R1 + R2 reaction and for the R1 and R2 individual reactions.
