The Scattering of Thermal Radiation Into Open Underground Shelters

Description: From Introduction: "The elimination of the burn hazard in shelters depends upon a separate, systematic investigation of each suspected agent. The purpose of the present investigation was to evaluate the contribution made by radiant energy and, if such contribution proved to be significant, to suggest means of eliminating this component."

The Radiological Assessment and Recovery of Contaminated Areas

Description: From Abstract: "The conceptual nature of a radiological defense system and role of decontamination or reclamation in such a system are discussed. Most of the report deals with methods for reducing the observed data to interpretive form because the data were taken with a large contaminated area."

Buried Valley of the Susquehanna River: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines regarding a buried valley area (a deposit of clay, sand, and gravel) around the Susquehanna River in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania, near the city of Wilkes-Barre. According the the introduction, "The purpose of this report is to furnish data on the buried valley of the Susquehanna River that will be useful in solving the anthracite mine-water problem" and "This report (a) discusses the physical characteristics and the influence of the buried valley of the Susquehanna River on anthracite mining in the Wyoming Valley area of the Northern field, (b) correlates pertinent data relating to the buried valley, (c) presents accurate contour maps showing the position of the top of solid rock underlying the water-soaked valley-fill deposits in the buried valley, and (d) presents cross sections at regular intervals across the buried valley showing the irregularities in trend and bottom as well as the thickness, configuration, and nature of the materials composing the water-bearing valley-fill deposits" (p. 3).

Helium-Bearing Natural Gases of the United States: Analyses and Analytical Methods

Description: Report published by the U.S. Bureau of Mines containing the results of a survey of the natural gas resources available in the United States. From the summary:"The Results of a Bureau of Mines survey of helium resources are given in this report and comprise gas analyses and accompanying data on more than 2,100 samples that have been collected in 30 States. The survey to determine the Nation's helium resources has been carried on in all natural-gas-producing areas of the United States since the inception of the Government's helium program in 1917. The primary purpose of the report is to present the results of this work in a tabulated form. A secondary purpose is to make public the historical background of the helium survey and to describe the methods of collecting gas samples and analyzing them. Detailed descriptions are given of the analytical equipment and procedures used in making the analyses" (p. 1).

Comparison of BM-AGA and Slot-Oven Experimental Methods of Carbonization, with Results for Eleven Coals

Description: From Introduction and Summary: "However, with the completion and satisfactory performance of an experimental vertical slot oven of 500-pound capacity at the University of Illinois Geological Survey Laboratory, the opportunity to directly compare BM-AGA coke with coke made by two-sided heating became available and the necessary test apparatus was installed. This report compares the results obtained by the two methods."

Inundated Anthracite Reserves: Eastern Middle Field of Pennsylvania

Description: From Scope of Report: "In this report one major unwatering project was developed. Three pools that inundate considerable tonnages of anthracite reserves are close enough together to be unwatered by some centralized system. Three alternative plans were studied to estimate the cost of each."
