Equipment and operations for preparing $sup 252$Cf neutron sources for interstitial cancer radiotherapy research

Description: The Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) is currently producing californium- 252 sources for a medical evaluation program in neutron radiotherapy. These sources provide an intense, tiny, neutron point source for cancer therapy research. Instead of using a large beam of neutrons from a reactor or accelerator for tumor treatments, the implantable $sup 252$Cf neutron source delivers a highly localized radiation dose within the tumor itself. The equipment design and operations for producing the sources, the Pt-Ir clad wire containing the Pd-Cf$sub 2$O$sub 3$ cermet core, and the assembly of 3 to 12 seeds sealed within a radiation resistant 1.20 mm plastic tube are described. All operations are performed by machines specially designed for remote operation in a shielded cell. (auth)

Brazed thermocouple pass-through for sodium service in a liquid-metal- cooled fast breeder reactor

Description: Sensors installed in special fuel elements for the EBR-II reactor had 30- ft-long leads that would pass from the sodium environment through a sealed bulkhead. A hydrogen-atmosphere, induction-heated brazing furnace was constructed to simultaneously braze 20-26 separate sensor leads at one time. The brazed seals were leak-tight, and the sheath wall has less than 10 percent interaction with the braze alloy. (auth)

The Terrestrial Biosphere and Global Change: Implications for Natural and Managed Ecosystems

Description: From the perspective of terrestrial ecosystems, the most important component of global change over the next three or four decades will likely be land-use/cover change. It is driven largely by the need to feed the expanding human population, expected to increase by almost one billion (109) people per decade for the next three decades at least. Much of this increase will occur in developing countries in the low-latitude regions of the world. To meet the associated food demand, crop yields will need to increase, consistently, by over 2% every year through this period. Despite advances in technology, increasing food production must lead to intensification of agriculture in areas which are already cropped, and conversion of forests and grasslands into cropping systems. Much of the latter will occur in semi-arid regions and on lands which are marginally suitable for cultivation, increasing the risk of soil erosion, accelerated water use, and further land degradation.
