Sandia National Laboratories ASCOT (atmospheric studies in complex terrain) field experiment, September 1980

Description: During the period September 8 through September 25, 1980, Sandia National Laboratories, Division 4774, participated in a series of experiments held in the Geysers area of California. These experiments, aimed at providing data on nighttime drainage flow in complex terrain, were intended to provide a reliable basis for mathematical flow modeling. Tracers were released at several points on a valley rim and sampled by a large number of stations at ground level. Sandia's contribution was to make it possible to derive vertical tracer profiles. This was done by taking air samples from a captive balloon at chosen altitudes between the surface and 450 meters above ground.

Role of rotational degrees of freedom in heavy-ion collisions

Description: The degrees of freedom affected by the angular momentum are identified. The relevance of the equilibrium fluctuations in a diffusive evolution of the system is discussed. The statistical limit is described and chosen as a reference for comparing with experiment. The rigid rotation regime is shown to be reached in a variety of reactions. The fragment spin alignment is measured from ..gamma..-ray multiplicities and anisotropies as well as from sequential fission angular distributions. Good agreement is obtained with the statistical model for the P/sub zz/ component of the polarization tensor. The P/sub xy/ component seems also to reach the statistical limit at large Q-value. The effect of shells on the angular momentum transferred to the fragments and on its misalignment is discussed theoretically and specific predictions are made.
