A Comparison of Performance and Levels of Aspiration of High and Low Anxious Males and Females

Description: The present study was concerned with the relationship between level of aspiration and anxiety. Level of aspiration is a term used for goal setting behavior. In other words, if a person sets his goals high it is said that he has a high level of aspiration. Anxiety, for the purpose of the present study is assumed to possess drive properties. Theoretically, at least, a highly anxious person has a high drive level. This assumption may be warranted in terms of physiological unrest--causing an effort toward equilibrium or homeostasis; or it can be defended psychologically as the need to achieve or the need to prove one's abilities to himself. However, the present paper was not concerned directly with the current controversy of anxiety as a drive mechanism. Rather it was the general purpose of the study to determine whether or not highly anxious college students set their goals higher, in response to previous experimental success or failure experiences than low anxious students. To be more specific the purpose was to determine whether or not highly anxious subjects differ significantly from low anxious subjects with respect to responses on a level of aspiration task. The particular response measures or scores investigated on the level of aspiration task were those shown between performance on one trial and the stated hoped-for- score, expected score, and the minimal-acceptable-score on the succeeding trial.

Effects of Ground-Water Development on the Proposed Palmetto Bend Dam and Reservoir in Southeast Texas

Description: Abstract: Ground water continues to discharge into the Navidad and Lavaca Rivers by seepage out-flow even though large amounts of ground water are pumped for irrigation. Although a reduction in streamflow probably has occurred, a complete loss of the low flow of the streams by infiltration to a lowered water table seems remote. The large ground-water withdrawals will continue to cause land-surface subsidence, which will range from 0.012 foot to more than 0.026 foot per year. A minimum of about 0.013 to 0.015 foot of annual subsidence at the upper ends of the proposed reservoir and a maximum of about 0.019 foot near the dam site can be expected. Structural failures of manmade features have not occurred from the subsidence, but regional changes in the land slope have occurred and will continue . Numerous fault traces have been mapped in the area, but most of the faults are inactive. If movement along the fault planes should occur, the vertical displacement probably will not exceed the total subsidence.

Effects of the Drought of 1980-81 on Streamflow and on Ground-Water Levels in Georgia

Description: From purpose and scope: This report examines and discusses the severity, areal extent, and duration of the 1980-81 drought in Georgia. This drought produced the lowest rates of streamflow since 1954 in most areas of the State and the lowest since 1925 in some areas.

Hydrogeology of Parts of the Central Platte and Lower Loup Natural Resources Districts, Nebraska

Description: From purpose and scope: There are two principal purposes for this study. The first is to describe the hydrogeologic system of the study area. The second is to develop and demonstrate a capability for evaluating, quantitatively, the effects of different management alternatives on water levels and on streamflow in the study area.

Problems of Rising Ground-Water Levels in Urban Areas with Special Reference to the Louisville, Kentucky Area

Description: From abstract: Rising ground-water levels are a problem in many urban areas in the United States because of the potential damage to man-made structures such as basements, foundations, utility lines, and septic tank systems. A decrease in ground-water withdrawals, above average precipitation, recharge from irrigation water, and leaky water lines and sewers are some of the causes of water level rises in cities such as San Bernardino, California; Greely and Fort Collins, Colorado; New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens; and Louisville, Kentucky. Dewatering is necessary in many urban areas to maintain water levels below structures.

Dynamometer-stand investigation of the muffler used in the demonstration of light-airplane noise reduction

Description: Report presenting testing of a muffler designed for an army liaison-type airplane on a ground dynamometer stand. A reduction of 10 to 15 decibels was obtainable over the range of 1650 to 2790 rpm and that an additional reduction of 5 decibels was possible at some engine speeds with a long tail pipe installed. The calculated attenuation characteristics are also presented.

Hydrogeology and Water Quality of Six Landfill Sites in Hillsborough County, Florida

Description: Purpose and scope: The objectives of this investigation were to describe the hydrology and geology of six landfill sites and to determine, when possible, changes in water levels due to landfill operations, the direction and extent of leachate movement, and changes in water quality in the surficial aquifer and the Floridian aquifer. The scope of this report is to evaluate pertinent data and results from six landfill site studies that have been conducted in Hillsborough County since 1969.

Noise survey under static conditions of a turbine-driven full-scale modified supersonic propeller with an advance ratio of 3.2

Description: Report presenting overall sound-pressure levels and frequency spectra under static conditions from a modified supersonic propeller designed to operate efficiently at a high forward speed without the high noise levels associated with the supersonic propeller. The three-blade, 10-foot-diameter, 1700-rpm propeller is powered by a turbine engine and is designed to operate at a Mach number of 0.95 at 40,000 feet.

Evaluation of the Effects of Lake Audubon on Ground- and Surface-Water Levels in the Lake Nettie Area, Eastern Mclean County, North Dakota

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this investigation is to describe changes in the ground-water levels and levels of surface-water bodies and to ascertain whether those changes can be ascribed to the raising of the level of Lake Audubon, or to the subsequent filling of the McClusky Canal, or both. The changes will be determined by analysis of water-level records obtained from observation wells.
