Cuba’s Offshore Oil Development:  Background and U.S. Policy Considerations

Cuba’s Offshore Oil Development: Background and U.S. Policy Considerations

Date: May 20, 2011
Creator: Nerurkar, Neelesh & Sullivan, Mark P.
Description: This report first examines Cuba’s oil sector, including current production and consumption levels. It then looks at Cuba’s offshore development, including the Repsol project, other offshore projects involving state-owed foreign oil companies, and the outlook for Cuba’s offshore oil production. The report then analyzes considerations for the United States raised by Cuba’s offshore oil development, examining oil spill risks and environmental dangers if spilled oil reaches U.S. waters, the status of disaster coordination between the United States and Cuba, and potential approaches on the issue. The report then examines the debate over broader U.S. involvement in Cuba’s offshore oil development, and touches on two outstanding boundary issues related to Cuba’s offshore oil development. Finally, the report examines legislative initiatives that have been advanced to deal with Cuba’s offshore oil development.

Cubature rules of prescribed merit

Cubature rules of prescribed merit

Date: March 1996
Creator: Lyness, J. N. & Sloan, I. H.
Description: We introduce a criterion for the evaluation of multidimensional quadrature, or cubature, rules for the hypercube: this is the merit of a rule, which is closely related to its trigonometric degree, and which reduces to the Zaremba figure of merit in the case of a lattice rule. We derive a family of rules Q{sub k}{sup a} having dimension s and merit 2{sup k}. These rules seem to be competitive with lattice rules with respect to the merit that can be achieved with a given number of abscissas.

Cube-textured nickel substrates for high-temperature superconductors

Cube-textured nickel substrates for high-temperature superconductors

Date: February 1, 1998
Creator: Specht, E.D.; Goyal, A.; Lee, D.F.; List, F.A.; Kroeger, D.M.; Paranthaman, M. et al.
Description: The biaxial textures created in metals by rolling and annealing make them useful substrates for the growth of long lengths of biaxially textured material. The growth of overlayers such as high-temperature superconductors (HTS) require flat substrates with a single, sharp texture. A sharp cube texture is produced in high-purity Ni by rolling and annealing. The authors report the effect of rolling reduction and annealing conditions on the sharpness of the cube texture, the incidence of other orientations, the grain size, and the surface topography. A combination of high reduction, and high temperature annealing in a reducing atmosphere leads to > 99% cube texture, with mosaic of 9.0{degree} about the rolling direction (RD), 6.5{degree} about the transverse direction (TD), and 5.0{degree} about the normal direction (ND).

CUERVO: A finite element computer program for nonlinear scalar transport problems

CUERVO: A finite element computer program for nonlinear scalar transport problems

Date: November 1, 1995
Creator: Sirman, M.B. & Gartling, D.K.
Description: CUERVO is a finite element code that is designed for the solution of multi-dimensional field problems described by a general nonlinear, advection-diffusion equation. The code is also applicable to field problems described by diffusion, Poisson or Laplace equations. The finite element formulation and the associated numerical methods used in CUERVO are outlined here; detailed instructions for use of the code are also presented. Example problems are provided to illustrate the use of the code.

Cullet Manufacture Using the Cylindrical Induction Melter

Cullet Manufacture Using the Cylindrical Induction Melter

Date: January 20, 2000
Creator: Miller, D. H.
Description: The base process for vitrification of the Am/Cm solution stored in F-canyon uses 25SrABS cullet as the glass former. A small portion of the cullet used in the SRTC development work was purchased from Corning while the majority was made in the 5 inch Cylindrical Induction Melter (CIM5). Task 1.01 of TTR-NMSS/SE-006, Additional Am-Cm Process Development Studies, requested that a process for the glass former (cullet) fabrication be specified. This report provides the process details for 25SrAB cullet production thereby satisfying Task 1.01.

Cultural Property: International Conventions and United States Legislation

Cultural Property: International Conventions and United States Legislation

Date: April 8, 2004
Creator: Elsea, Jennifer K & Garcia, Michael John
Description: This report describes relevant treaties, U.N. Security Council Resolution 1483, current U.S. law, and proposed legislation, including H.Con.Res. 113, the Iraq Cultural Protection Act (H.R. 2009 and H.R. 3497), and the Emergency Protection for Iraqi Cultural Antiquities Act of 2004 (S. 1291 and S. 671, the latter of which has passed the Senate as an engrossed amendment to H.R. 1047, the Miscellaneous Trade and Technical Corrections Act of 2004).

Cultural resource management: The risk of compliance

Cultural resource management: The risk of compliance

Date: February 1, 1994
Creator: Curtis, S.A.
Description: The statutory mandate for federal agencies to involve American Indians in the management of cultural resources may create a cultural risk for the people those statutes are intended to protect. A conceptual framework is given to help understand this dilemma. Factors that can exacerbate the severity of the adverse cultural impacts for tribal people are also examined. Policy recommendations are offered for reducing tensions among an the participants in the statutory process.

Cultural resource survey report for construction of office building, driveway, and parking lot at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Part 1

Cultural resource survey report for construction of office building, driveway, and parking lot at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Part 1

Date: January 1, 1995
Creator: Perry, M.E.
Description: An Environmental Assessment and associated documentation is reported for the construction of an office building and parking lot in support of environmental management personnel activities. As part of the documentation process, the DOE determined that the proposed project constituted an undertaking as defined in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. In accordance with the regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, a records and literature search and historic resource identification effort were carried out on behalf of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). This report summarizes cultural resource literature and record searches and a historic resource identification effort.
