Energy Efficiency of Buildings in Cities

Description: A report by the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) that "examines the potential for increased energy efficiency in buildings found in cities from two perspectives: that of the energy expert who assesses technical opportunities for improved energy efficiency, and that of the real estate expert who evaluates the financial attractiveness of real estate investment opportunities" (p. iii).

Organic Solutes in Ground Water at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory

Description: From purpose of study: In January 1980, the u.s. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended that a ground-water monitoring program for organic constituents be started at the INEL. In response to this recommendation, DOE requested the U.S. Geological Survey to undertake such a program. The purpose of the study was to determine the distribution and extent of organic constituents in the ground water beneath the INEL.

The Benchmark Farm Program - A Method for Estimating Irrigation Water Use in Southwest Florida

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this report is to present irrigation water-use data for selected farms and to show how these data are used to estimate total water use for irrigating various crops in southwest Florida. The study area includes all of the Southwest Florida Water Management District and is about 10,000 miles in size (figure 1). The initial emphasis on benchmark farm locations was in Hillsborough, Manatee, and Polk Counties. As the program continues, new farms are being added in surrounding counties (figure 2).

The Immigration and Nationality Act: Questions and Answers

Description: The basic United States law governing immigration and naturalization is contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, as amended (8 U.S.C. 1101 -- et seq.). This report provides questions and answers to explain the way in which the Immigration and Nationality Act as amended through 1981 regulates the entry of aliens for permanent and temporary residence in the United States, and other major provisions of the law. Emphasis is placed on subjects which have been of particular interest to the Congress in recent years. This supersedes CRS Report No. 81-65 EPW.

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Coleen Quadrangle, Alaska

Description: From Introduction: "The Coleen Quadrangle, Alaska, was evaluated to identify geologic environments and delineate areas that exhibit characteristics favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits. An environment is considered favorable if it could contain uranium deposits of at least 100 tons U3O8 in rocks that have an average grade of not less that 100 ppm U3O8."

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Spokane Quadrangle, Washington and Idaho

Description: From Introduction: "The Spokane Quadrangle, located in parts of Washington, Idaho, and Montana between lat 47º and 48º N. and long 116º and 118º W. (Fig. 1), was evaluated to identify and delineate areas and geologic units that exhibit characteristics favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits."

Areal Extent of a Plume of Mineralized Water from a Flowing Artesian Well in Dade County, Florida

Description: Abstract: A flowing artesian well tapping the Floridan aquifer at Chekika Hammock State Park, Dade County, Florida, has been contaminating the overlying Biscayne aquifer with saline water since 1944. The contaminating plume extends approximately 7 miles downstream and southeast of the well and ranges in width from 1 to 2 miles. The area of contamination is approximately 12 square miles. The primary contaminating chemical constituents are chloride, sodium, and sulfate ions.

Prescott Quadrangle, Arizona

Description: From Introduction: "The Prescott 1º by 2º quadrangle (Fig. 1) was investigated to identify areas where geologic environments exhibit characteristics favorable for uranium deposits. The defined goal was to evaluate all geologic environments to a depth of 1500 m (5,000 ft) and assign each environment to one of two categories: Favorable for uranium deposits that could contain at least 100 tons U3O8 in rocks having an average grade not less than 100 ppm U3O8. Unfavorable for such deposits."

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Lawton Quadrangle, Oklahoma and Texas

Description: From purpose and scope: The Lawton Quadrangle, Oklahoma and Texas (Fig. 1), was evaluated to a depth of 1500 m (5,000 ft) to identify geologic environments and delineate areas that exhibit characteristics favorable for uranium deposits. Determination of uranium favorability was based on the similarity of geologic characteristics to the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) recognition criteria described in Mickle and Mathews (eds., 1978).

Impact of Reservoir-Development Alternatives on Streamflow Quantity in the Yampa River Basin, Colorado and Wyoming

Description: From abstract: "In the Yampa River basin, Colorado-Wyoming, 35 major reservoirs and 2 transmountain diversion have been proposed to provide additional water for increasing uses. A multireservoir-flow computer model was used to simulate effects on streamflow of five potential options--one representing historical conditions and four representing various degrees of reservoir and transmountain-diversion development." It contains maps and tables.
