Summaries of BFRL fire research in-house projects and grants, 1993  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The report describes the fire research projects performed in the Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) and under its extramural grants program during fiscal year 1993. The BFRL Fire Research Program has directed its efforts under three program thrusts. The in-house priority projects, grants, and externally-funded efforts thus form an integrated, focussed ensemble. The publication is organized along those lines: fire risk and hazard prediction - carbon monoxide prediction, turbulent combustion, soot, engineering analysis, fire hazard assessment, and large fires; fire safety of products and materials - materials combustion, furniture flammability, and wall and ceiling fires; and advanced technologies for fire sensing and control - fire detection and fire suppression. For the convenience of the reader, an alphabetical listing of all grants is contained in Part 2.0.

Preliminary Evaluation of the Section 1603 Treasury Grant Program for Renewable Power Projects in the United States  

SciTech Connect

This article evaluates the first year of the Section 1603 Treasury cash grant program, which enables renewable power projects in the U.S. to elect cash grants in lieu of the federal tax credits that are otherwise available. To date, the program has been heavily subscribed, particularly by wind power projects, which had received 86% of the nearly $2.6 billion in grants that had been disbursed as of March 1, 2010. As of that date, 6.2 GW of the 10 GW of new wind capacity installed in the U.S. in 2009 had applied for grants in lieu of production tax credits. Roughly 2.4 GW of this wind capacity may not have otherwise been built in 2009 absent the grant program; this 2.4 GW may have supported approximately 51,600 short-term full-time-equivalent (FTE) gross job-years in the U.S. during the construction phase of these wind projects, and 3,860 longterm FTE gross jobs during the operational phase. The program’s popularity stems from the significant economic value that it provides to renewable power projects, relative to the otherwise available tax credits. Although grants reward investment rather than efficient performance, this evaluation finds no evidence at this time of either widespread “gold-plating” or performance problems.

Tailoring Community-Based Wellness Initiatives With Latent Class Analysis -- Massachusetts Community Transformation Grant Projects  

PubMed Central

Introduction Community-based approaches to preventing chronic diseases are attractive because of their broad reach and low costs, and as such, are integral components of health care reform efforts. Implementing community-based initiatives across Massachusetts’ municipalities presents both programmatic and evaluation challenges. For effective delivery and evaluation of the interventions, establishing a community typology that groups similar municipalities provides a balanced and cost-effective approach. Methods Through a series of key informant interviews and exploratory data analysis, we identified 55 municipal-level indicators of 6 domains for the typology analysis. The domains were health behaviors and health outcomes, housing and land use, transportation, retail environment, socioeconomics, and demographic composition. A latent class analysis was used to identify 10 groups of municipalities based on similar patterns of municipal-level indicators across the domains. Results Our model with 10 latent classes yielded excellent classification certainty (relative entropy = .995, minimum class probability for any class = .871), and differentiated distinct groups of municipalities based on health-relevant needs and resources. The classes differentiated healthy and racially and ethnically diverse urban areas from cities with similar population densities and diversity but worse health outcomes, affluent communities from lower-income rural communities, and mature suburban areas from rapidly suburbanizing communities with different healthy-living challenges. Conclusion Latent class analysis is a tool that may aid in the planning, communication, and evaluation of community-based wellness initiatives such as Community Transformation Grants projects administrated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

PTC, ITC, or Cash Grant? An Analysis of the Choice Facing Renewable Power Projects in the United States  

SciTech Connect

Renewable power technologies are inherently capital-intensive, often (but not always) with relatively high construction costs and low operating costs. For this reason, renewable power technologies are typically more sensitive to the availability and cost of financing than are natural gas power plants, for example. In the United States, the bulk of renewable project finance in recent years has been provided by 'tax equity investors' (typically large investment banks and insurance companies) who partner with project developers through highly specialized financing structures (Bolinger, 2009; Cory et al., 2008; Harper et al., 2007). These structures have been designed primarily to capitalize on federal support for renewable power technologies, which has historically come in the form of tax credits and accelerated depreciation deductions. The number of tax equity investors active in the renewable power market has declined precipitously, however, as a result of the financial crisis that began unfolding across the globe in the summer of 2008. The resulting shortage and increased cost of project financing has, in turn, slowed the development of new renewable power projects, leading to layoffs throughout the entire industry supply chain. In recognition of the fact that tax-based policy incentives are not particularly effective when tax burdens are shrinking or non-existent, Congress included several provisions in 'The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009' (ARRA 2009) designed to make federal incentives for renewable power technologies more useful. Among these provisions is one that allows projects eligible to receive the production tax credit ('the PTC', see Text Box 1) to instead elect the investment tax credit ('the ITC', see Text Box 2). Another provision enables ITC-eligible projects (which now include most PTC-eligible renewable power projects) to instead receive--for a limited time only--a cash grant of equivalent value. These two provisions (among others) could have a significant impact on how renewable power projects are financed over the next few years. The purpose of this report is to both quantitatively and qualitatively analyze, from the project developer/owner perspective, the choice between the PTC and the ITC (or equivalent cash grant) for a number of different renewable power technologies.1 Because the two credits are structured differently, and apply in different ways to different technologies, the choice between the two lends itself to quantitative financial analysis of the conditions under which either the PTC or the ITC would, at least in theory, provide greater financial value. Qualitative considerations may be equally important, however, particularly in instances where quantitative differences are modest. This report proceeds as follows. Section 2 provides a brief summary of ARRA 2009, with some emphasis on those provisions designed to ease the liquidity crisis facing the renewable power sector. Section 3 describes the quantitative analysis methodology, as well as modeling results for wind, open-loop biomass, closed-loop biomass, geothermal, and landfill gas projects. Section 4 discusses a number of qualitative considerations that may play as important of a role as quantitative results in deciding between the PTC and the ITC (or equivalent cash grant). Section 5 concludes, and an Appendix provides supplemental tables that present quantitative analysis results conducted at different discount rates.

The MicroMAPS Project: A NASA - Virginia Space Grant Consortium Initiative  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The MicroMAPS instrument is a nadir-viewing, gas filter correlation radiometer that operates in the 4.67-micrometer band of carbon monoxide. MicroMAPS was designed at North Carolina State University and built at Resonance Ltd in Canada for flight on the NASA-Clark spacecraft, under the Small Spacecraft Technology Initiative. Because of spacecraft-related delays, the Clark mission was cancelled in February 1998. The instrument was removed from the spacecraft in August 2000 and placed in storage at NASA Langley Research Center until the initiation of the current MicroMAPS project in 2002. The primary goal of the MicroMAPS mission is to examine the chemical and transport processes in the lower atmosphere. The scientific objectives are to 1) demonstrate the reliability and accuracy of the two-layer profiles and total column amounts of CO in the troposphere; 2) provide additional CO measurements and profiles to investigators who develop combined chemistry-transport models, data assimilation models, and other regional- to global-scale atmospheric models; and 3) complement the measurement matrix of space-based CO sensors such as MOPITT on the Terra and TES on the AURA spacecrafts. Test flights of the MicroMAPS CO remote sensor on the Proteus 281 aircraft (owned by Scaled Composites, Inc.) will enable the development and testing of data retrieval algorithms for this instrument, and the verification of these remote CO measurements through comparisons with CO profiles that are measured directly. The aerospace engineering student team from Virginia Polytechnic Institute completed the instrument system and the enclosure design in May 2002. The new composite enclosure replaces the nose of the starboard tail boom during MicroMAPS flights. The instrument system consists of MicroMAPS, an optical window, a data acquisition computer, environmental sensors, and a power inverter. The integrated instrument system, after testing at NASA Langley is completed, will be shipped to Scaled Composites, Inc. in Mojave, CA, to be integrated, calibrated, and flown on a series of test flights. These initial data sets will be used to test the prototype retrieval algorithms under development by the engineering student team at the University of Virginia. The MicroMAPS instrument system will fly on-board Proteus, as a non-interfering payload in collaboration with other integrated payloads.

Petrology of Westwater Canyon member, Morrison Formation, East Chaco Canyon drilling project, New Mexico-comparison with Grants mineral belt  

SciTech Connect

The results of this report are based on 47 samples of Westwater Canyon Sandstone, Morrison Formation (Upper Jurassic). The 250 to 350 ft (75 to 100-m) thick Westwater Canyon Member is 80 percent fine- to medium-grained arkosic sandstone and 20 percent interbedded red and green mudstones. Nine zones of low-grade uranium mineralization were intercepted by five drill holes. The alteration of Westwater Canyon sandstones in the East Chaco Canyon project area is similar to the alteration of sandstones near ore deposits in the Grants mineral belt. Magnetite grains located in and near mineralization display more severe dissolution than do grains far removed from mineralization. Typically, clay minerals replace feldspar along cleavages. A widely observed alteration feature is the dissolution of feldspar grain centers, leaving a thin shell of albite. Authigenic hematite occurs in feldspar cleavages and in the matrix of some detrital mudstone clasts. The authigenic clay mineralogy of the 47 samples does not vary significantly. Nests of authigenic kaolinite make up less than 50 percent of the -2 micron fraction. Grain coatings of authigenic chlorite have an edge-to-face or rosette habit and account for about one-third of the authigenic clay minerals. Mixed-layer illite-montmorillonite also forms grain coatings. Preliminary chemical analyses of the samples indicate a low uranium content in the whole-rock samples (about 2 ppM).

Assessing the Value of Team Science A Study Comparing Center- and Investigator-Initiated Grants  

PubMed Central

Background Large cross-disciplinary scientific teams are becoming increasingly prominent in the conduct of research. Purpose This paper reports on a quasi-experimental longitudinal study conducted to compare bibliometric indicators of scientific collaboration, productivity, and impact of center-based transdisciplinary team science initiatives and traditional investigator-initiated grants in the same field. Methods All grants began between 1994 and 2004 and up to 10 years of publication data were collected for each grant. Publication information was compiled and analyzed during the spring and summer of 2010. Results Following an initial lag period, the transdisciplinary research center grants had higher overall publication rates than the investigator-initiated R01 (NIH Research Project Grant Program) grants. There were relatively uniform publication rates across the research center grants compared to dramatically dispersed publication rates among the R01 grants. On average, publications produced by the research center grants had greater numbers of coauthors but similar journal impact factors compared with publications produced by the R01 grants. Conclusions The lag in productivity among the transdisciplinary center grants was offset by their overall higher publication rates and average number of coauthors per publication, relative to investigator-initiated grants, over the 10-year comparison period. The findings suggest that transdisciplinary center grants create benefits for both scientific productivity and collaboration.

Audit of departmental receipt of final deliverables for grant awards  

SciTech Connect

To help meet legislatively mandated and programmatic mission requirements, the Department of Energy (DOE) awards grants to colleges and universities, state and local governments, individuals, small businesses, and non-profit corporations. As of July 15, 1996, the DOE was responsible for administering over 7,400 grants with purposes ranging from basic research to weatherizing homes. The Government`s share of these grants was about $8 billion. The objective of this audit was to determine whether the DOE received final deliverables, detailing grantee accomplishments and expenditure of funds, in accordance with Federal and Departmental policies and procedures. The Code of Federal Regulations requires that grants benefit the general public. This is demonstrated through technical and/or financial reports that each grantee is usually required to deliver. These reports describe the final results of the grant effort. In spite of this requirement, many grantees did not provide final technical and/or financial reports. For example, at the five procurement offices audited, it is projected that the Department had not received final deliverables on 718 inactive grants valued at about $232 million. In other cases, officials inappropriately extended performance periods so that the grant instrument would continue to be classified as active. This non-reporting occurred because the Department did not effectively implement existing procedures or establish other monitoring procedures that ensured grantees fulfilled their grant obligations. Specifically, the Department did not establish procedures to withhold payment if a grantee failed to comply with grant terms and conditions. In addition, the Department did not defer additional awards to grantees that had not met the tenons and conditions of prior grants and inappropriately extended grant performance periods for excessive periods of time. Further, Departmental personnel waived reporting requirements in order to close out grant awards.

Florida Memory Spanish Land Grants  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

For several centuries, Spain established a presence in the area that is now Florida. After the land was transferred to the United States in 1821, European settlers filed land grants to prove land ownership. Interestingly enough, in 1790 Spain had started offering land grants to encourage settlement to the sparsely populated and vulnerable Florida colony. Of course, those who had filed claims had to prove to the United States that they had valid claims via documentation and testimonials. The Florida Memory project has digitized these documents and placed them online here for use by the general public. These documents provide information about the settlement and cultivation of Florida during this period via descriptions of the land, copies of royal grants, and so on. Visitors can browse all of the grants here or look at the five volume history of these documents created as part of the WPA's work in the 1930s. Finally, there is information here about how to order the maps for closer consideration.

Periodicity  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In thinking about a title for this chapter, the word periodicity came to mind. I was sure this had some kind of pop culture reference. After discussing this with my wife, we figured I was thinking of synchronicity, which is a reference to music by the band, The Police. Looking the word Periodicity up on the internet, I found that I was, in fact, a science geek and had not made a hip reference. Periodicity refers mainly to the Periodic Table, which is a focus of this chapter. No music, just science.

The Salvá-Sinobas project: Characterization of Iberian climate during the 1750-1850 period.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This poster describes the recently started Salvá-Sinobas project, which is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Environment for the period 2009-2011. It includes research groups from different Spanish Universities: Complutense de Madrid, Extremadura, Almería, Barcelona, Murcia, Vigo, Pablo de Olavide and Zaragoza. The main aim of the project is the characterization of climate in Iberia during the period 1750-1850. The main steps that can be identified are: data recovery and abstraction, building of new documentary and natural proxies, regional modeling and data analysis. To increase the data availability for this period, new data sources will be used: - Early instrumental series will be recovered for several sites, including Barcelona, Madrid and Menorca. We expect to recover the longest observational series for Spain. - The complete collection of English logbooks sailing in the Mediterranean during the study period - Documentary proxies of extreme hydrological, precipitation and temperature events. - Tree ring series from unexplored species and areas. - New simulations from RCMs. All these series will be freely available at the end of the project from the project website http://www.salva-sinobas.uvigo.es. They will be used as the basis for different statistical and dynamical analysis. They will include: identification of temperature and precipitation extreme events, characterization of circulation patterns and the role of teleconnections along the study period, evaluation of the climate anomalies recorded during the Dalton minimum (1790-1820) and evaluation of health impacts.

Grant writing 101.  

PubMed

Writing a grant is a hefty undertaking. Start by surrounding yourself with a successful mentor and accompanying team with a good track record. Get organized, select clear goals and objectives to your project. Once the foundation for the grant is set, begin by generating a robust hypothesis. Once your hypothesis is clearly defined, you should contact the project officer of the specific grant for which you are applying; they can help identify if the proposal meets an area of need. The basic components of a grant include the following: the face page, which highlights the key contributors; followed by table of contents; abstract; biographical sketches, which are minicurriculum vitae; budget; research plan, which is composed mostly of background, significance, and specific aims; and lastly, references cited. Be sure to follow specific formatting. Use resources including the internet to find an appropriate grant. Finally, given the confines of a busy surgical practice and the significant amount of work necessary to complete a grant, it is essential that the work begins early and well in advance of the proposed deadline.

CHAPHOLO (scientific drilling project): Paleolimnological Evaluation of Lake Chapala, western Mexico, During Holocene (CONACYT grant: CB2011-168685)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

CHAPHOLO ( CHAP: Chapala; HOLO: Holocene) has as goal to evaluate paleoenvironmental variations recorded in the sediment of neotectonic Lake Chapala (LCH), western Mexico (20°15.129'N, 103° 02.996'W). The lake lies about 1524 m asl. LCH is the largest lake in Mexico (1,100 kmyr2), but is shallow (zmax = 7.20 m). It is located in a basin belonging to the Citala Rift, the east-west branch of three continental rifts that join to form the so-called Jalisco triple junction. Our working hypothesis is that recent (Holocene) paleolimnological changes in LCH were caused by major climate variations and by minor regional/local processes (e.g. volcanism). We will drill a 40m long core from the lake depocenter, with the objective of recovering a full Holocene record, and likely more, assuming a mean sedimentation rate of 2 mm yr-1. Core chronology will be established using AMS 14C and 210Pb techniques and climate inferences will be made using geochemical, geophysical and micropaleontological proxies. Particularly, we pretend to identify the six "short" fluctuations of climate that characterized the Holocene (Mayewski et al., 2004) and the identification of Mediewal Warm Period and the droughts affected the mayan culture (Hodell et al., 1995). We will verify the application of Ti as a proxy to rainfall (Metcalfe et al., 2010). During the last 10,000 the fact about the dissolution of diatom in LCH sediments must be evaluated (Ryves et al., 2009). The working group is multidisciplinary (Geochemistry, Micropaleontology, Paleolimnology, Geophysics) and involves multiple institutions (Guadalajara University, Mexican National University-UNAM, University of Florida, University of Nebraska-Lincoln). CHAPHOLO is supported by funds from the Mexican government and from the Guadalajara University. The theme of CHAPHOLO is consistent with global environmental programs such as PAGES and CLIVAR. This project will be developed in stages over three years.

Summary report on the wood waste utilization project under the US Department of Energy Appropriate Energy Technology Small Grants Program  

SciTech Connect

This report summarizes activities to promote the use of wood waste as energy within the seven-county Southeast Missouri Region. The history of wood waste projects within the Region is reviewed, the actual activities undertaken are summarized, and a set of lessons learned and conclusions are presented. The primary conclusion is that projects such as this are valuable for rural America in general. These contracts can allow for professional staff to be available to assist in developing alternative energy projects. Such contracts can be reasonably inexpensive for the federal government and can have far reaching effects on the national energy picture by promoting alternate fuels in rural parts of the country. Discussion is presented under the headings: energy audits; barge refitting operation; pellet mill; charcoal operation; wood gasifier project; wood-fired transportation project; municipal electric generation project; and county landfill incineration project.

Riparian Buffer Project : Annual Report for the Period April 1, 2001 to March 31, 2002.  

SciTech Connect

This project implements riparian buffer systems in the Mid-Columbia, addressing limiting factors identified in the Fifteen mile Subbasin Summary, June 30, 2000. The project is providing the technical planning support needed to implement at least 36 riparian buffer system contracts on approximately 872 acres covering an estimated 40 miles of anadromous fish streams over a three year period. In the first year of implementation, 26 buffer contracts were established on 25-26 miles of stream. This nearly doubled the annual goal. Buffer widths averaged 83 ft. on each side of the stream. Implementation included prescribed plantings, fencing, and related practices. Actual implementation costs, lease payments, and maintenance costs are borne by existing USDA programs: Conservation Reserve and Conservation Reserve Enhancement Programs. The lease period of each contract may vary between 10 to 15 years. During this year the average was 14.5 years. The total value of contracts established this year is $1,491,235 compared with $64,756 in BPA contract costs to provide the technical support needed to get the contracts implemented. This project provides technical staffing to conduct assessments and develop plans to help keep pace with the growing backlog of potential riparian buffer projects. Word of mouth from satisfied customers has brought in many new sign-ups during the year. More than half of the contracts this year have been done in the Hood and Fifteen mile sub-basins with additional contracts in adjacent sub-basins.

The EPOCH Project. I. Periodic variable stars in the EROS-2 LMC database  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The EPOCH (EROS-2 periodic variable star classification using machine learning) project aims to detect periodic variable stars in the EROS-2 light curve database. In this paper, we present the first result of the classification of periodic variable stars in the EROS-2 LMC database. To classify these variables, we first built a training set by compiling known variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud area from the OGLE and MACHO surveys. We crossmatched these variables with the EROS-2 sources and extracted 22 variability features from 28 392 light curves of the corresponding EROS-2 sources. We then used the random forest method to classify the EROS-2 sources in the training set. We designed the model to separate not only ? Scuti stars, RR Lyraes, Cepheids, eclipsing binaries, and long-period variables, the superclasses, but also their subclasses, such as RRab, RRc, RRd, and RRe for RR Lyraes, and similarly for the other variable types. The model trained using only the superclasses shows 99% recall and precision, while the model trained on all subclasses shows 87% recall and precision. We applied the trained model to the entire EROS-2 LMC database, which contains about 29 million sources, and found 117 234 periodic variable candidates. Out of these 117 234 periodic variables, 55 285 have not been discovered by either OGLE or MACHO variability studies. This set comprises 1906 ? Scuti stars, 6607 RR Lyraes, 638 Cepheids, 178 Type II Cepheids, 34 562 eclipsing binaries, and 11 394 long-period variables. catalog of these EROS-2 LMC periodic variable stars is available at http://stardb.yonsei.ac.kr and at the CDS via anonymous ftp to http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr (ftp://130.79.128.5) or via http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/566/A43

Hawaii Space Grant Consortium  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Hawai'i Space Grant Consortium is composed of ten institutions of higher learning including the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, the University of Hawai'i at Hilo, the University of Guam, and seven Community Colleges spread over the 4 main Hawaiian islands. Geographic separation is not the only obstacle that we face as a Consortium. Hawai'i has been mired in an economic downturn due to a lack of tourism for almost all of the period (2001 - 2004) covered by this report, although hotel occupancy rates and real estate sales have sky-rocketed in the last year. Our challenges have been many including providing quality educational opportunities in the face of shrinking State and Federal budgets, encouraging science and technology course instruction at the K-12 level in a public school system that is becoming less focused on high technology and more focused on developing basic reading and math skills, and assembling community college programs with instructors who are expected to teach more classes for the same salary. Motivated people can overcome these problems. Fortunately, the Hawai'i Space Grant Consortium (HSGC) consists of a group of highly motivated and talented individuals who have not only overcome these obstacles, but have excelled with the Program. We fill a critical need within the State of Hawai'i to provide our children with opportunities to pursue their dreams of becoming the next generation of NASA astronauts, engineers, and explorers. Our strength lies not only in our diligent and creative HSGC advisory board, but also with Hawai'i's teachers, students, parents, and industry executives who are willing to invest their time, effort, and resources into Hawai'i's future. Our operational philosophy is to FACE the Future, meaning that we will facilitate, administer, catalyze, and educate in order to achieve our objective of creating a highly technically capable workforce both here in Hawai'i and for NASA. In addition to administering to programs and educating the public in the traditional sense, we also work to facilitate partnerships between other departments (geology & geophysics, engineering, geography, astronomy), state and federal government agencies in Hawai'i, and private industry. In some cases, we are the catalyst for new partnerships between private agency sponsors and education projects or for new joint research and education projects between industry and the University faculty.

International Collaboration and Academic Exchange of the CHAIN Project in this Three Years (Period)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We will introduce contents of international collaboration and academic exchange of the CHAIN project in recent three years (ISWI period). After April of 2010, we have not obtained any enough budget for new instruments. Therefore, we have not been able to install new Flare Monitoring Telescopes (FMT) in new countries, such as Algeria. On the other hand, however, we have continued international academic exchange through scientific and educational collaboration with mainly Peru, such as data-analysis training, holding scientific workshops etc. Additionally, in this year, King Saudi University of Saudi Arabia and CRAAG of Algeria have planned to build a new FMT in their university by their own budget. Therefore, we have started some collaboration in the field of technical advices of instruments and scientific themes etc. Moreover, Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) also offered us participation in the CHAIN-project. We would like to continue to consider the possibility of academic collaboration with such new positive developing nations, too.

This is also true for agricultural regions, where exposure to extreme heat, particularly during key growth phases such as the reproductive period, can severely damage crop production in ways that are not captured by most crop models. Here, we analyze exposure of crops to physiologically critical temperatures in the reproductive stage (Tcrit), across the global harvested areas of maize, rice, soybean and wheat. Trends for the 1980-2011 period show a relatively weak correspondence (r = 0.19) between mean growing season temperature and Tcrit exposure trends, emphasizing the importance of separate analyses for Tcrit. Increasing Tcrit exposure in the past few decades is apparent for wheat in Central and South Asia and South America, and for maize in many diverse locations across the globe. Maize had the highest percentage (15%) of global harvested area exposed to at least five reproductive days over Tcrit in the 2000s, although this value is somewhat sensitive to the exact temperature used for the threshold. While there was relatively little sustained exposure to reproductive days over Tcrit for the other crops in the past few decades, all show increases with future warming. Using projections from climate models we estimate that by the 2030s, 31, 16, and 11% respectively of maize, rice, and wheat global harvested area will be exposed to at least five reproductive days over Tcrit in a typical year, with soybean much less affected. Both maize and rice exhibit non-linear increases with time, with total area exposed for rice projected to grow from 8% in the 2000s to 27% by the 2050s, and maize from 15 to 44% over the same period. While faster development should lead to earlier flowering, which would reduce reproductive extreme heat exposure for wheat on a global basis, this would have little impact for the other crops. Therefore, regardless of the impact of other global change factors (such as increasing atmospheric CO2), reproductive extreme heat exposure will pose risks for global crop production without adaptive measures such as changes in sowing dates, crop and variety switching, expansion of irrigation, and agricultural expansion into cooler areas.

Knowledge and Solidarity: The Norwegian Social-Democratic School Project in a Period of Change, 1945-2000  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Between World War II and the end of the millennium two major educational reform periods are identified in Norway: reform period I in the 1950s and 1960s and reform period II in the 1990s. The Labour Party led both reforms. While the educational reforms in the 1950s and 1960s undoubtedly were part of an overall Nordic social-democratic project, the…

Opportunities for Small Nutrition-Related Cancer Research Grants (R03) from the National Cancer Institute1  

PubMed Central

Small research grants, or R03 grants, provide limited, short-term support for individual research projects. R03s may be an excellent means of support for projects by nutrition scientists at all stages in their careers. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has awarded roughly one-half of all nutrition-related NIH R03 grants in the period from 2005 to 2010. A detailed review of the recent NCI grant portfolio identified potential strategies for successful applications. Projects that addressed important nutrition and cancer issues had feasible and appropriate specific aims, were innovative, and were based on sound concepts were most positively viewed by reviewers. Furthermore, applicants with suitable expertise, training, mentorship, and records of accomplishment who, when appropriate, collaborated with investigators with complementary knowledge and skills were more likely to receive higher priority scores.

NASA's Space Grant program  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Program descriptions are provided for both phases of the U.S. NASA Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. While Phase I consisted of the designation of 21 universities and university consortia as Space Grant Colleges/Consortia intended to maintain a balanced program of research, curriculum, and public service, the recently implemented Phase II is designed to broaden participation in the Space Grant Program by targeting states that are currently not as involved in NASA programs as are the states for which Phase one is constructed. The Phase II/Capability Enhancement Grants (CEG) thus provide grants to states with little or no present NASA involvement, with planning grants expected to lead to substantive grant proposals. States are to compete in either the Programs Grants category or the CEG category, with only one proposal accepted from each state. Program Grants, CEGs, and Fellowship requirements are outlined.

SciTech Connect

Northern Power Systems completed the Cold Weather Turbine (CWT) project, which was funded by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), under subcontract XAT-9-29200-01. The project's primary goal is to develop a 100-kW wind turbine suited for deployment in remote villages in cold regions. The contract required testing and certification of the turbine to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61400-1 international standard through Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The contract also required Northern Power Systems to study design considerations for operation in extreme cold (-80F at the South Pole, for example). The design was based on the successful proof of concept (POC) turbine (developed under NREL and NASA contracts), considered the prototype turbine that would be refined and manufactured to serve villages in cold regions around the world.

The ACS LCID Project - VIII. The short-period Cepheids of Leo A  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present the results of a new search for variable stars in the Local Group dwarf galaxy Leo A, based on deep photometry from the Advanced Camera for Surveys onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. We detected 166 bona fide variables in our field, of which about 60 per cent are new discoveries and 33 candidate variables. Of the confirmed variables, we found 156 Cepheids, but only 10 RR Lyrae stars despite nearly 100 per cent completeness at the magnitude of the horizontal branch. The RR Lyrae stars include seven fundamental and three first-overtone pulsators, with mean periods of 0.636 and 0.366 d, respectively. From their position on the period-luminosity (PL) diagram and light-curve morphology, we classify 91, 58 and 4 Cepheids as fundamental, first-overtone and second-overtone mode Classical Cepheids (CC), respectively, and two as Population II Cepheids. However, due to the low metallicity of Leo A, about 90 per cent of the detected Cepheids have periods shorter than 1.5 d. Comparison with theoretical models indicate that some of the fainter stars classified as CC could be Anomalous Cepheids. We estimate the distance to Leo A using the tip of the red giant branch (TRGB) and various methods based on the photometric and pulsational properties of the Cepheids and RR Lyrae stars. The distances obtained with the TRGB and RR Lyrae stars agree well with each other while that from the Cepheid PL relations is somewhat larger, which may indicate a mild metallicity effect on the luminosity of the short-period Cepheids. Due to its very low metallicity, Leo A thus serves as a valuable calibrator of the metallicity dependences of the variable star luminosities.

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The federal government has thousands of grant programs, and navigating the numerous Web sites administered by the various grant-making agencies and departments can be difficult at times. Stepping into that breach is Grants.gov, which serves as an electronic storefront for federally-administered grant programs. From the homepage, visitors may want to begin by browsing through a list of grant topics, which range from housing to the humanities. Clicking on each topic will lead to another list detailing which federal agencies provide (or may provide) grant monies within each area. Visitors looking for greater search capabilities will want to move to the grants synopsis search area, which allows for customizable searches for quick access to the relevant grants and application documents. Equally helpful is the federal grant notification service that allows individuals to be notified when new grant announcements are released by various agencies. Through this notification service visitors may also register to receive all notices from selected agencies, funding categories, eligibility groups, or funding opportunity number.

Deflagration-to-detonation transition project: quarterly report for the period September through November 1979  

SciTech Connect

The activities of the Sandia Laboratories project on deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT) pertain primarily to the development of small, safe, low-voltage, hot-wire detonators. Its major goals are: the formulation of a modeling capability for DDT of the explosive 2-(5-cyanotetrazolato)pentaamminecobalt(III) perchlorate (CP); the development of improved DDT materials; the establishment of a data base for corrosion, compatibility, and reliability of CP-loaded detonators; and the design and development of advanced DDT components. Progress in this research is reported. The planned development of the MC3423 detonator has been completed and the final design review meeting has been held. Additional work must be performed to establish satisfactory output function. Ignition sensitivity data have also been obtained. Ignition and shock testing experiments for development of the MC3533 detonator have been planned. An initial version of the component will utilize available MC3423 headers, while the final design will incorporate a new header that has been designed and ordered. Detonator performance studies have been planned to optimize CP density-length factors. Feasibility studies on the MC3196A detonator have continued in an effort to obtain a reliable 50-200 ..mu..s function time.

ESMD Space Grant Faculty Report  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The strength of the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate ESMD Faculty Project lies in its ability to meet National Aeronautics Space Administration NASA's Strategic Educational Outcome 1 by developing a sustainable and long-term integration of student involvement at academic institutions with all NASA Centers. This outcome is achieved by a three-fold approach: 1) by collecting Senior Design projects pertaining to Constellation work performed at each of the ten NASA Centers, 2) by engaging students at Minority Serving Institutions in the art of systems engineering and systems design of technologies required for space exploration, and 3) by identifying potential internships at each Center relative to exploration that provide students who are supported by their institutional Space Grant to engage in on-going mission-level and explorative systems designs. The objectives of the ESMD Faculty Project are to: 1. Aid the Centers (both Education Offices and associated technical organizations) in providing relevant opportunities for the ESMD Space Grant Program to support student and faculty in Senior Design projects 2. Enable better matches between the ESMD work required and what the Space Grant Consortia can do to effectively contribute to NASA programs 3. Provide the Space Grant Consortia an opportunity to strengthen relations with the NASA Centers 4. Develop better collective understanding of the U.S. Space Exploration Policy by the Center, Space Grant, faculty, Education Office, and students 5. Enable Space Grant institution faculty to better prepare their students to meet current and future NASA needs 6. Enable the Center Education Offices to strengthen their ties to their technical organizations and Space Grant Consortia 7. Aid KSC in gaining a greater and more detailed understanding of each of the Center activities Senior Design projects are intended to stimulate undergraduate students on current NASA activities related to lunar, Mars, and other planetary missions and to bring out innovative and novel ideas that can be used to complement those currently under development at respective NASA Centers. Additionally, such academic involvement would better the prospects for graduating seniors to pursue graduate studies and to seek careers in the space industry with a strong sense for systems engineering and understanding of design concepts. Internships, on the other hand, are intended to provide hands-on experience to students by engaging them in diverse state-of-the-art technology development, prototype bread-boarding, computer modeling and simulations, hardware and software testing, and other activities that provide students a strong perspective of NASA's vision and mission in enhancing the knowledge of Earth and space planetary sciences. Ten faculty members, each from a Space Grant Consortium-affiliated university, worked at ten NASA Centers for five weeks between June 2 and July 3, 2008.

Ultimate Cary Grant Pages  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Maintained and developed by Debbie Dunlap, a devoted fan, this site pays homage to Cary Grant (whose real name was the slightly less marquee-friendly, Archibald Leach), one of Hollywood's leading men during the 20th century. The site provides a host of material about Grant, his films, and his life, including a filmography, movie reviews, a photo gallery, a sound gallery, and links to old radio shows in which Cary Grant appeared. The sound gallery is an excellent part of the site, as visitors can listen to audio clips from Grant vehicles like North by Northwest, Arsenic and Old Lace, and Charade. Visitors will learn quite a bit about Cary Grant from the site, including the fact that he never won an Academy Award for his acting, although he was awarded an honorary Oscar in 1970 for his life's work.

NARCliM regional downscaling project in Australia: Long-term climatological analysis of the control period  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

NARCliM (NSW/ACT Regional Climate Modelling project) is a regional climate modeling project for the Australian area. It will provide a comprehensive dynamically downscaled climate dataset for the CORDEX-AustralAsia region at 50km, and South-East Australia at a resolution of 10km. NARCliM data will be used by state governments to design their climate change adaptation plans. It runs an ensemble of WRF simulations using three different physical configurations and four different GCMs for the present and future periods along three different time-windows (1990-2010, 2020-2040 and 2060-2080). We will present the validation of the control period (1950-2009) using the NNRP re-analysis. Simulated climatologies are compared with observed ones from a gridded data-set (AWAP) comparing observed and simulated seasonal climatologies and long-term series based on the climatological sensitivity to different climate indices (representing modes of variability including ENSO, the Indian Ocean Dipole, and the Southern Annular Mode which affect the Australia climate). Results show that the performance of the simulated climate presents a regional (from tropical to desert areas), seasonal and variable (precipitation and minimum/maximum daily temperatures) sensitivity without a clear outperforming physical configuration. Long-term analysis (mostly by means of correlations with the time-series of the indices) shows that increasing spatial resolution has a positive impact on how the model represents the continental climate response to the large scale and improves the results from the data providing the boundary conditions (NNRP) taking the response of the observations as the reference.

Evaluation of the Research Grant Program of the Foundation of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists, 1995-2008  

PubMed Central

Background: Pharmacist-led research has grown substantially over the past 10 to 15 years. The Research Grant Program of the Research and Education Foundation of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP Foundation), initiated in 1992, is the only funding opportunity available specifically to members of the Society. Objective: To evaluate the status of research projects funded by the Research Grant Program of the CSHP Foundation, to examine the outcomes of these projects, and to determine the opinions of grant recipients regarding this competition. Methods: An e-mail survey was sent to each of the 34 hospital pharmacist researchers who received funding from the Research Grant Program of the CSHP Foundation during the period 1995 to 2008. Survey questions sought to evaluate scholarly outcomes (i.e., publications and presentations) from funded projects. The opinions of grant recipients about the value of the program were also solicited. Results: One of the potential respondents had returned the grant money and was ineligible for the survey. Of the 33 potential respondents, 30 (91%) responded to the survey. Overall, 24 of the projects had been completed at the time of the survey, and 19 of these had been published, resulting in a total of 26 manuscripts. Abstracts had been presented for 21 of the projects. In total, 49 abstracts had been presented at national (22), international (13), provincial (7) and local (7) conferences. The median award was $5000 (interquartile range $5000 to $7500). Eleven of the projects had received additional funding, primarily from the recipient’s hospital or health authority or from university sources. The survey respondents indicated that the grant from the CSHP Foundation had been critical to completion of their projects and had been of assistance in securing additional funding, when such funding was necessary. Respondents felt that dedicated research funding for hospital pharmacists in Canada should continue. Conclusions: The Research Grant Program of the CSHP Foundation has been important to hospital pharmacists, enabling a variety of research projects to be initiated and completed. The high rate of project completion and the large number of publications and presentations resulting from this work speak to both the quality of the work and the dedication of the research teams. The CSHP Foundation should continue to fund this competition and should explore a more robust model, with larger awards and more funded projects each year.

Cancer trends in Lebanon: a review of incidence rates for the period of 2003-2008 and projections until 2018  

PubMed Central

Background The analysis of cancer incidence trends is essential to health care planning. The aim of this study is to examine variations in cancer incidence rates in Lebanon between 2003 and 2008 and use the observed trends to project cancer incidence until 2018. Methods Using secondary data with a cumulative caseload of 45,753 patients from the National Cancer Registry database of the Ministry of Public Health in Lebanon, we estimated sex- and site- specific incidence of cancer for each year of the six-year period between 2003 and 2008. Logarithmic regressions were fitted to estimate the cancer incidence for the forecast years until 2018. Results Between 2003 and 2008, males and females presented with an overall 4.5% and 5.4% annual increase, respectively. Significant increases were observed for cancers of the liver and prostate among males, and for cancers of the liver, thyroid, and corpus uteri among females. By 2018, incidence rates were projected to approach 296.0 and 339.5 cases per 100,000 for males and females, respectively. The most common five types of cancer are expected to be prostate, bladder, lung, non-Hodgkin, and colon among males; and breast, ovarian, non-Hodgkin, lung, and colon among females. Conclusion The increased availability of screening programs and a growing smoking epidemic, most notably in women, are the most likely explanations behind the increased cancer incidence in the past decade. An aging population and higher proportion of older people suggest further increases in the cancer caseload in the future. The health care system in Lebanon will be required to adapt to the growing burden of cancer in our population.

THE BANANA PROJECT. III. SPIN-ORBIT ALIGNMENT IN THE LONG-PERIOD ECLIPSING BINARY NY CEPHEI  

SciTech Connect

Binaries are not always neatly aligned. Previous observations of the DI Her system showed that the spin axes of both stars are highly inclined with respect to one another and the orbital axis. Here, we report on a measurement of the spin-axis orientation of the primary star of the NY Cep system, which is similar to DI Her in many respects: it features two young early-type stars ({approx}6 Myr, B0.5V+B2V), in an eccentric and relatively long-period orbit (e = 0.48, P = 15fd3). The sky projections of the rotation vector and the spin vector are well aligned ({beta}{sub p} = 2{sup 0} {+-} 4{sup 0}), in strong contrast to DI Her. Although no convincing explanation has yet been given for the misalignment of DI Her, our results show that the phenomenon is not universal, and that a successful theory will need to account for the different outcome in the case of NY Cep.

Making Time for Dissertation Grants  

PubMed Central

Grant writing is a necessary skill for becoming an independent and successful social work researcher. Since social work dissertation grants are a relatively new trend, students face many challenges in identifying, preparing, and submitting dissertation grants. Lack of resources and experiences, difficulties in protecting time for grant writing, and the uncertainty of success can hinder work on dissertation grants. Thus, this article provides an overview of dissertation grants, including a review of grant mechanisms, suggestions for preparing grants in the context of program milestones, and identifying institutional infrastructure to facilitate submissions. Strategies discussed include how to learn about funding priorities, how to establish timelines to account for grant deadlines, and how to use peer reviews to guide the revision process.

The NASA Space Grant College and Fellowship Program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1989, the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (also known as Space Grant) contributes to the nation's science enterprise by funding research, education, and public service projects through a national network of 52 university-based Space Grant consortia. These consortia administer programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. In 1998, the consortia's 703 affiliates include 493 academic institutions and 62 businesses. Other partners include state and local government agencies, other federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Space Grant celebrates its tenth year of service in 1999. Since its inception, Space Grant has awarded over 12,000 U.S. citizens with tuition assistance in science, engineering, and related fields of study. Approximately twenty percent of these awards were to students from underrepresented groups and approximately thirty-five percent were to women. The majority of Space Grant student awards include a mentored research experience with university faculty or NASA scientists. Space Grant funds curriculum enhancement and faculty development as well. Space Grant colleges and universities also administer precollege and public service education programs that help to meet the education needs of their states. The Space Grant consortia have leveraged federal funds to more than double the Space Grant budget with matching contributions from state and local sources. Space Grant encourages collaboration among departments, across institutions, and with business and industry. All Space Grant programs emphasize the diversity of human resources, the participation of students in research, and the communication of the benefits of science and technology to the general public.

New York State Health Foundation grant helps health centers win federal expansion funds.  

PubMed

With approximately 1.2 million New Yorkers poised to gain health insurance coverage as a result of federal health reform, demand for primary care services is likely to increase greatly. The Affordable Care Act includes $11 billion in funding to enhance primary care access at community health centers. Recognizing a need and an opportunity, in August 2010 the New York State Health Foundation made a grant of nearly $400,000 to the Community Health Care Association of New York State to work with twelve health centers to develop successful proposals for obtaining and using these federal funds. Ultimately, eleven of the twelve sites are expected to receive $25.6 million in federal grants over a five-year period-a sixty-four-fold return on the foundation's investment. This article describes the strategy for investing in community health centers; identifies key project activities, challenges, and lessons; and highlights its next steps for strengthening primary care.

Many National Science Foundation grants will be reduced this year as a result of a provision in H.R. 3299. The provision stems from disagreement between the Congress and the administration on how to make budget deficit cuts required by the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings budget law. An agreement was made to cut $4.55 billion through a reduction in discretionary spending, by what amounts to 1.4% across-the-board. The cuts will affect all discretionary federal domestic and defense programs.

Review showed that some grantees misused grant monies and did not comply with grant provisions primarily due to insufficient on-site monitoring of the grantees' progress and expenditures. Recommendations to achieve the objectives of the program were: more timely and systematic monitoring; curtail or stop funds for grant projects with unsatisfactory progress or of questionable merit; substantiate expenditures by grantees before disbursing grant funds; and consider increasing program management capability by staffing alternatives.

These projects included the Fast Wave Current Drive (FWCD) Upgrade ($8.2M), the Radiative Divertor Upgrade ($7.2M) and the Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH) Upgrade ($11.8M). The ECH and FWCD upgrades provided DIII-D rf and microwave power for electron heating, driving plasma current, controlling the plasma current profile, controlling tearing mode instabilities, and modulated transport studies.The divertor provided adequate density and impurity control for high triangularity single null plasmas in the Advanced Tokamak (AT) Program and information for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) divertor design. These upgrades provide the power and density control required to initiate the active control of advanced tokamak discharges, which is the key element in the DIII-D program.

The spirit of the HST Cycle E/PO Grant Program is to encourage collaborative efforts between professional astronomers/space scientists and professional educators that would broaden the knowledge and understanding of the latest discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope. HST Cycle E/PO grants provide NASA funding for HST Principal Investigators and Hubble Fellows to develop and implement small E/PO projects based upon the science and/or science theme of the parent research program(s). Awardees do this working in partnership with professionals in the education and outreach communities. Beginning with Cycle 8, 170 science programs have been represented in the HST Cycle E/PO Grant Program. This poster will feature examples of key E/PO projects funded by the HST Cycle E/PO Grant Program, highlighting the aspects that made each one successful.

GrantCraft  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

GrantCraft was originally started in October 2001 as a small collection of case studies and examples, and it was designed to be used as orientation material for new program officers at the Ford Foundation. Over the past decade, the site has grown significantly, and it offers videos, workshops, guides, and other tools to help grantmakers across the spectrum. On the homepage, visitors can start by looking over the "Guides" area to learn more about the challenges facing grantmakers today. Moving along, the "What We're Reading" area features some of their favorite resources from "the field and beyond". The bottom of the homepage features "Videos", such as information from the State Fiscal Analyses Initiative and nuts-and-bolts programs like "Building a Network". Finally, visitors can also sign up for free updates and they also shouldn't miss the "New to Grantmaking?" area.

Long Period Eclipsing Binaries in the Magellanic Clouds: a Period-I Magnitude Relation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Eclipsing Binaries via Artificial Intelligence (EBAI) project (Prsa et al) generated solutions for eclipsing binaries in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) as observed by the OGLE II project. Automatic clustering applied to the results highlighted that the LMC's long period (P>10d) detached (EA) binaries follow a linear relation in Period-I magnitude (Devinney et al). Subsequent analysis of OGLE II data for the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) has revealed a similar relationship. The present relation is distinct from the Period-K band linear relation for LMC MACHO Project (Alcock et al) EBs as found by Wood et al, and discussed by Soszynski et al and Derekas et al. The Period-K band relation is convincingly modeled by invoking one EB component at the Roche lobe, whereas EBs in the Period-I magnitude relation reported here show minimal proximity effects and they are significantly fainter. We show that the Period-I magnitude relation is not a selection effect and weigh alternatives for its evolutionary basis. We are grateful for the support of this research from NSF/RUI Grant AST-05-75042.

Louisiana NASA EPSCoR Preparation Grant  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

In August, 1999, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration issued a Cooperative Agreement (CA) to the State of Louisiana, through the Louisiana Board of Regents (BOB), for the performance of scientific research and graduate fellowships under the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) -- Preparation Grant. Originally constructed as a one year program, with an optional one year continuation, this federal-state partnership culminated on 14 August 2002, including a successful continuation proposal and a no cost extension. The total value of the project reached $450K in NASA funding, matched by state funds and institutional contributions. The purpose of the Preparation Grant program was to develop and nurture strong research ties between the state and NASA field centers and Enterprises, in order to prepare for the upcoming full competition for NASA EPSCoR.

Age-Period-Cohort Projections of Ischaemic Heart Disease Mortality by Socio-Economic Position in a Rapidly Transitioning Chinese Population  

PubMed Central

Background With economic development and population aging, ischaemic heart disease (IHD) is becoming a leading cause of mortality with widening inequalities in China. To forewarn the trends in China we projected IHD trends in the most economically developed part of China, i.e., Hong Kong. Methods Based on sex-specific IHD mortality rates from 1976 to 2005, we projected mortality rates by neighborhood-level socio-economic position (i.e., low- or high-income groups) to 2020 in Hong Kong using Poisson age-period-cohort models with autoregressive priors. Results In the low-income group, age-standardized IHD mortality rates among women declined from 33.3 deaths in 1976–1980 to 19.7 per 100,000 in 2016–2020 (from 55.5 deaths to 34.2 per 100,000 among men). The rates in the high-income group were initially higher in both sexes, particularly among men, but this had reversed by the end of the study periods. The rates declined faster for the high-income group than for the low-income group in both sexes. The rates were projected to decline faster in the high-income group, such that by the end of the projection period the high-income group would have lower IHD mortality rates, particularly for women. Birth cohort effects varied with sex, with a marked upturn in IHD mortality around 1945, i.e., for the first generation of men to grow up in a more economically developed environment. There was no such upturn in women. Birth cohort effects were the main drivers of change in IHD mortality rates. Conclusion IHD mortality rates are declining in Hong Kong and are projected to continue to do so, even taking into account greater vulnerability for the first generation of men born into a more developed environment. At the same time social disparities in IHD have reversed and are widening, partly as a result of a cohort effect, with corresponding implications for prevention.

MRS feasibility assessment grant technical progress report  

SciTech Connect

On January 13, 1993, Governor of the State of Utah, Mike Leavitt officially announced that he was opposing a MRS Facility in the State of Utah and informed San Juan County of his decision which will preclude the County from applying for a Phase IIa feasibility grant. A copy of the policy statement made by Governor Leavitt is included in this report. Additionally, a bill in the State House of Representative has been filed opposing the facility. A copy of the bill is also included. The work accomplished under Phase I, indicated that there was about an equal amount of residents in San Juan County opposed and in favor of the facility. There were many concerns and issues presented during the Phase I grant period that would have been continued to Phase IIa, if allowed, including the citizen committee.

DOE uniform reporting system for Federal assistance (grants and cooperative agreements): guidelines  

SciTech Connect

These guidelines establish a uniform reporting system (URS) for grants and cooperative agreements. The purpose is to simplify reporting requirements, standardize reporting, and ensure that no assistance recipient submits more reports than needed to achieve accountability for public funds. This system replaces the many reporting procedures previously imposed by DOE component organizations. Uniform terminology and data elements will minimize ambiguity of meaning and intent. A glossary of terms is provided. A checklist is used to identify all reporting requirements at the time of award. The recipient is encouraged to discuss the requirements before the time of award in order to ensure that they are appropriate. The Guidelines describe planning forms which can be included in the Federal assistance application or proposal to present the planned approach and desired results. Flexibility has been built into the system to ensure that the information requested is relative to the activity performed. A recipient of Federal assistance submits information only once in each reporting period. The reporting system provides recipients with a formal method for identifying problems, including those originated by the Federal government. For purposes of illustration, a hypothetical project - partially funded by DOE under a cooperative agreement - using all the Program Management forms is presented in Part II, Program Management. Part III, Technical Information uses a research grant to illustrate Technical Reporting. Appendix B provides a complete example of the reporting requirements on a research grant.

The organizational and administrative structure of the CaSGC has the Consortium Headquarters Office (Principal Investigator - Dr. John Kosmatka, California Statewide Director - Dr. Michael Wiskerchen) at UC San Diego. Each affiliate member institution has a campus director and an scholarship/fellowship selection committee. Each affiliate campus director also serves on the CaSGC Advisory Council and coordinates CMIS data collection and submission. The CaSGC strives to maintain a balance between expanded affiliate membership and continued high quality in targeted program areas of aerospace research, education, workforce development, and public outreach. Associate members are encouraged to participate on a project-by-project basis that meets the needs of California and the goals and objectives of the CaSGC. Associate members have responsibilities relating only to the CaSGC projects they are directly engaged in. Each year, as part of the CaSGC Improvement Plan, the CaSGC Advisory Council evaluates the performance of the affiliate and associate membership in terms of contributions to the CaSGC Strategic Plan, These CaSGC membership evaluations provide a constructive means for elevating productive members and removing non-performing members. This Program Improvement and Results (PIR) report will document CaSGC program improvement results and impacts that directly respond to the specific needs of California in the area of aerospace-related education and human capital development and the Congressional mandate to "increase the understanding, assessment, development and utilization of space resources by promoting a strong education base, responsive research and training activities, and broad and prompt dissemination of knowledge and technology".

Technical Report on Grant  

SciTech Connect

This research project employed a combination of laboratory, field and modeling activities to explore the fate of reactive species in the atmosphere. Our work focused particularly on the behavior of hydroperoxides and their precursors, hydroperoxy radicals. Initially, we pursed the study of these species to elucidate the role they play in the formation of photochemical smog. In recent years, we have extended our studies to the role of these oxidants in forming aerosol particles, due the potential of the latter to influence climate by changing the radiative properties of the atmosphere.

FUSE/Lyman grant  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A variety of options for a short wavelength spectrometer for the Lyman telescope has been studied, and the optimum configuration for this instrument identified. In this spectrometer option study it is assumed (consistent with performance goals outlined by the project) that the instrument, whose prime spectral domain is 900-12000A, will incorporate a grazing incidence telescope which will maintain good collecting efficiency down to 100A. In particular it is assumed that the telescope will have an effective focal length of 10 meters, an image quality of 1.5", and will provide a diverging f/10 beam. Designs compatible with this telescope are analyzed, and it is determined that a two-element grazing incidence spectrometer using as its first optic an ellipsoid to re-focus the beam and a varied line-space plane diffraction grating to disperse the light is the best overall design. This spectrometer could be fed by a small pick-off mirror located just behind the prime focus of the telescope and would clear the light path when not in use. A test of the diffraction efficiency of a low blaze angle grating is undertaken, which is the only technical uncertainty in the spectrometer design.

Installation of an HPLC-DAD/APCI-MS and direct flame sampling/APCI-MS for fullerenes and PAH research. Initial report for instrumentation grant, Project period 1 August 1992--31 July 1994  

SciTech Connect

Recently, the authors` research group at MIT discovered that both C{sub 60} and C{sub 70} fullerenes are produced in substantial amounts from benzene-oxygen-argon flames under certain conditions. Use of the PE/Sciex APCI-LC/MS will be crucial to the analysis of fullerene mixtures now being generated in flames in Department of energy sponsored research at MIT. The PE/Sciex APCI/LC-MS equipment consists of a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with diode array spectrophotometric detector (DAD) interfaced to an atmospheric pressure ionizer with a single quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS) through a heated nebulizer. The interface between the HPLC and the MS is designed to minimize thermal input to the HPLC eluents and is of great importance for the intended application. Ionization occurs in a unique fashion at atmospheric pressure using a chemical ionization source (APCI). It will be used for the identification and quantification of flame-generated fullerenes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).

Usefulness of 16-row multidetector computed tomography with volume rendering and maximum intensity projection reconstruction as a monitor pancreatic graft vessel patency during the early postoperative period.  

PubMed

Thrombosis of the pancreatic graft vessels is the most common complication after transplantation. It leads to loss of 5% to 8% of grafts during the early postoperative period. The aims of this study were to evaluate the usefulness of 16-row multidetector computed tomography (16-MDCT) with volume rendering (VR) and maximum intensity projection (MIP) reconstruction to monitor pancreatic graft vessel patency during the early postoperative period and the efficacy of a heparin infusion as a treatment for graft thrombosis. Among 40 consecutive simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant recipients, 16-MDCT was performed at 6 to 8 days after the operation. Secondary reconstructions were obtained with VR and MIP algorithms to evaluate the morphology and patency of the extra- and intrapancreatic arteries and veins. In cases of thrombosis, every patient was treated with an infusion of unfractionated heparin. In 15 recipients, thrombosis of the large vessels was detected by 16-MDCT. Heparin infusions saved five pancreatic grafts (5/15; 33.3%), but the other 10 pancreatic grafts were removed. In another four recipients (4/40; 10%) the thrombi were localized only in small intrapancreatic vessels. Treatment with heparin infusion was successful in 3/4 (75%) cases with patent vessels upon control computed tomography examination. We compared the efficacy of heparin treatment depending on the diameter of the thrombosed vessel, observing a significant difference (5/15 vs 3/4; P < .01; chi-square). 16-MDCT with secondary reconstruction by application of VR and MIP algorithms was an efficient method to visualize not only large pancreatic graft arteries and veins but also intrapancreatic parenchymal vessels. In cases of thrombosis of small intrapancreatic vessels, unfractionated heparin infusion significantly decreased graft loss. PMID:19857700

Appropriate Technology Small Grants Program. Code case studies  

SciTech Connect

The first year's operation of the Small Grants Program at a national scale was evaluated. The purpose of this management evaluation is to provide the headquarters Office of Inventions and Small Scale Technology and the ten regional program managers with findings and recommendations which will be useful to more effectively administer in the future. These conclusions are based on responses to a questionnaire from 197 program participants as well as personal interviews and telephone conversations with roughly half of the respondents. This report presents a compilation of case studies of projects which were funded during FY 78 and FY 79. These case studies focus on code issues (e.g., building, zoning, planning) that grantees may have dealt with. Possible problems that may have been encountered and resolution actions that grantees may have taken were researched. The results are presented in the form of a brief discussion of code issues followed by the case studies of relevant projects. The technological areas of interest are: Utility interconnection case studies, grants in which electric power is produced by small scale wind and hydroelectric facilities and for which interconnection with a utility grid is possible; Biomass case studies, grants involving composting and small scale methane production; and Geothermal case studies, grants in which either groundwater or the earth's thermal energy is used as a source for heating and cooling. Each case study provides a brief overview of a grantee's project including its objective, description, and benefits.

OAK B188 Plasma Colloquium Travel Grant Program. The purpose of the Travel Grant Program is to increase the awareness of plasma research. The new results and techniques of plasma research in fusion plasmas, plasma processing space plasmas, basic plasma science, etc, have broad applicability throughout science. The benefits of these results are limited by the relatively low awareness and appreciation of plasma research in the larger scientific community. Whereas spontaneous interactions between plasma scientists and other scientists are useful, a focused effort in education and outreach to other scientists is efficient and is needed. The academic scientific community is the initial focus of this effort, since that permits access to a broad cross-section of scientists and future scientists including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and research staff.

Grants: Genesis of Some Funded Proposal Ideas  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

While "thinking outside the box" can be an over-used phase at times, in the world of grants it can provide the genesis of ideas. The "box" is the world of academia accepted by most educators, while "thinking outside" is the process that leads to grant ideas. In the grant world, "thinking outside the box" is a process of doing something that has…

Strategies to secure surgical research funding: fellowships and grants  

PubMed Central

Summary Innovation and advances in surgery are entirely dependent on research. Fellowships and grants are the principal means by which surgical research projects are funded. However, these are scarce and highly competitive. This article offers guidance through the application process for the aspiring academic surgeon. Approaching the application in a timely and structured manner, seeking advice from current and previous award-holders and members of review panels, and obtaining preliminary data are key ingredients to success.

Experience from a (U-Th)/He thermochronology CAREER grant  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

An accomplished demigod of geosciences once offered advice on strategizing a research career: "Do a combination of things: something conventional and safe, something better than anyone else, and something weird and risky." Balancing precious effort along these lines may be an ideal strategy, but reality often makes it difficult at best. One of the greatest benefits of a CAREER grant is the opportunity to implement a strategy integrating a stable base of different approaches like this, especially the weird and risky. My CAREER grant started with realization that the then resurgent radiogenic He dating technique had potential in an enormous range of problems outside traditional cookie-cutter approaches. Exploring applications ranging well beyond conventional tectonic and detrital studies, to meteorite histories, magmatic ascent rates, biogenic phosphates, wildfire, and multi-method dating may not have revolutionized geosciences, but some of the unique insights that resulted are both conceptually and practically valuable and could not have been achieved through traditional funding avenues. Moreover, weird and risky adaptations, in this case of a versatile geochronologic tool, are well suited for student involvement as student side projects, which are scientifically and intellectually nourishing for both student and faculty. Some of these relatively short term explorations (e.g., dating turquoise, travertine, cassiterite, Neolithic pottery, pseudotachylite, mammoth teeth, fault gouge, impact craters, etc.) end up not leading far, or pointing to a route that requires much more work to explore fully. But there is value in cliffed-out side canyons, not the least of which is showing students that it is ok to eschew formulaic karaoke geology. The strategic career advice above accommodates outreach/education. In my experience, the more organic the synthesis between outreach and research, the more naturally functional, rewarding, and sustainable the efforts. One way to incorporate outreach is simply to open one's lab to the community to provide basic but valuable analyses. In my case this was routine (U-Th)/He dating for tectonic and geomorphic studies. This requires significant commitment to training and analytical reliability, but also provides broad scientific enrichment to the lab. In addition to a huge number of rocks-in-the-mailbox users, during the grant our lab hosted >50 visiting users from >35 institutions, generating thousands of analyses for outside users alone. But simply opening one's lab is not particularly distinctive outreach. A more important and consuming initiative was our summer workshops on thermochronology. These featured teaching and a fieldtrip but, most importantly, the chance for 8 or 9 visiting students to analyze as many (U-Th)/He (and recently, with help from colleagues, U/Pb and FT) dates as they could cram into a two-week period, interpret them, and present their results. The high-intensity workshops generated large amounts of data, many meeting abstracts, a few papers, valuable collaborations with advisors, and rewarding experiences with diverse students. They require a lot of time and effort, including stress of insuring continuous smooth analytical performance. One nugget of experience from these is that they are more rewarding when centered on a theme (e.g., Antarctichron 2011).

Feasibility Study of Supercritical Light Water Cooled Reactors for Electric Power Production, Nuclear Energy Research Initiative Project 2001-001, Westinghouse Electric Co. Grant Number: DE-FG07-02SF22533, Final Report  

SciTech Connect

The supercritical water-cooled reactor (SCWR) is one of the six reactor technologies selected for research and development under the Generation IV program. SCWRs are promising advanced nuclear systems because of their high thermal efficiency (i.e., about 45% versus about 33% efficiency for current Light Water Reactors [LWRs]) and considerable plant simplification. SCWRs are basically LWRs operating at higher pressure and temperatures with a direct once-through cycle. Operation above the critical pressure eliminates coolant boiling, so the coolant remains single-phase throughout the system. Thus, the need for a pressurizer, steam generators, steam separators, and dryers is eliminated. The main mission of the SCWR is generation of low-cost electricity. It is built upon two proven technologies: LWRs, which are the most commonly deployed power generating reactors in the world, and supercritical fossil-fired boilers, a large number of which are also in use around the world. The reference SCWR design for the U.S. program is a direct cycle system operating at 25.0 MPa, with core inlet and outlet temperatures of 280 and 500 C, respectively. The coolant density decreases from about 760 kg/m3 at the core inlet to about 90 kg/m3 at the core outlet. The inlet flow splits with about 10% of the inlet flow going down the space between the core barrel and the reactor pressure vessel (the downcomer) and about 90% of the inlet flow going to the plenum at the top of the rector pressure vessel, to then flow down through the core in special water rods to the inlet plenum. Here it mixes with the feedwater from the downcomer and flows upward to remove the heat in the fuel channels. This strategy is employed to provide good moderation at the top of the core. The coolant is heated to about 500 C and delivered to the turbine. The purpose of this NERI project was to assess the reference U.S. Generation IV SCWR design and explore alternatives to determine feasibility. The project was organized into three tasks: Task 1. Fuel-cycle Neutronic Analysis and Reactor Core Design Task 2. Fuel Cladding and Structural Material Corrosion and Stress Corrosion Cracking Task 3. Plant Engineering and Reactor Safety Analysis. moderator rods. materials.

Final Report for the NERI Project  

SciTech Connect

This final report summarizes the research activities during the entire performance period of the NERI grant, including the extra 9 months granted under a no-cost time extension. Building up on the 14 quarterly reports submitted through October 2008, we present here an overview of the research accomplishments under the five tasks originally proposed in July 2004, together with citations for publications resulting from the project. The AFCI-NERI project provided excellent support for two undergraduate and 10 graduates students at the University of Michigan during a period of three years and nine months. Significant developments were achieved in three areas: (1) Efficient deterministic fuel cycle optimization algorithms both for PWR and SFR configurations, (2) Efficient search algorithm for PWR equilibrium cycles, and (3) Simplified Excel-based script for dynamic fuel cycle analysis of diverse cycles. The project resulted in a total of 8 conference papers and three journal papers, including two that will be submitted shortly. Three pending publications are attached to the report.

National Directory of NASA Space Grant Contacts  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Congress enacted the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (also known as Space Grant). NASA's Space Grant Program funds education, research, and public service programs in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico through 52 university-based Space Grant consortia. These consortia form a network of colleges and universities, industry partners, State and local Government agencies, other Federal agencies, museum and science centers, and nonprofit organizations, all with interests in aerospace education, research, and training. Space Grant programs emphasize the diversity of human resources, the participation of students in research, and the communication of the benefits of science and technology to the general public. Each year approximately one-third of the NASA Space Grant funds support scholarships and fellowships for United States students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Typically, at least 20 percent of these awards go to students from underrepresented groups, and at least 40 percent go to women. Most Space Grant student awards include a mentored research experience with university faculty or NASA scientists or engineers. Space Grant consortia also fund curriculum enhancement and faculty development programs. Consortia members administer precollege and public service education programs in their States. The 52 consortia typically leverage NASA funds with matching contributions from State, local, and other university sources, which more than double the NASA funding.
