Systematic Effects in Type-1a Supernovae Surveys from Host Galaxy Spectra

Description: The physical relation between the properties of Type Ia supernovae and their host galaxies is investigated. Such supernovae are used to constrain the properties of dark energy, making it crucial to understand their physical properties and to check for systematic effects relating to the stellar populations of the progenitor stars from which these supernovae arose. This grant found strong evidence for two distinct populations of supernovae, and correlations between the progenitor stellar populati… more

The Population Dynamics and Trophic Relationships of Seven Species of Fish in a Small Southwestern Pond, with Special Attention Toward Young-of-the-Year Fish

Description: Production rates of seven species of fish, along with food-web interactions, were determined for one year in a pond. Production of fish in the pond amounted to 208.9 q/m2/yr. Over 95% of the production occurred in the summer, with Y of Y fish contributing 83.8%. There were two food-web interactions observed in Y of Y fishes: crappie vs. bass and bullhead vs. sunfish. When Y of Y fish shifted to benthic diets in the spring, the small biomass of benthos available could not sustain the larger bio… more

Looking for Darwin's footprints in the microbial world

Description: As we observe the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birthday, microbiologists interested in the application of Darwin's ideas to the microscopic world have a lot to celebrate: an emerging picture of the (mostly microbial) Tree of Life at ever-increasing resolution, an understanding of horizontal gene transfer as a driving force in the evolution of microbes, and thousands of complete genome sequences to help formulate and refine our theories. At the same time, quantitative models of the micr… more

Mobility of people and goods in the urban environment: mobility of the handicapped and elderly. Second year final report. [Methodology]

Description: An evaluation methodology for the analysis of alternative transportation improvements for the handicapped and elderly is proposed. The approach is based on the ability to incorporate the qualitative attributes of transportation systems which are particularly significant to the handicapped and elderly groups. These attributes include comfort and convenience, security and safety, and accessibility. In addition, this study addresses the issues of demonstration projects planning and offers guidelin… more

Historical perspective on the moon base: the British experience

Description: Among the many historical episodes that have relevance to the establishment of a human base, the voyages of Captain Cook, and the founding of Britain's Botany Bay colony in Australia seems particularly appropriate. The process resulting in the selection of Cook rewards study, as do his relations with the Admiralty, with the scientific establishment and with the scientists who accompanies him. Britain's tight control of the Botany Bay settlement and its unwillingness to promote early self-suffic… more

A Computational Methodology for Addressing Differentiated Access of Vulnerable Populations During Biological Emergencies

Description: Mitigation response plans must be created to protect affected populations during biological emergencies resulting from the release of harmful biochemical substances. Medical countermeasures have been stockpiled by the federal government for such emergencies. However, it is the responsibility of local governments to maintain solid, functional plans to apply these countermeasures to the entire target population within short, mandated time frames. Further, vulnerabilities in the population may ser… more

The Cost of Homelessness in Dallas: An Economic and Fiscal Perspective

Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, briefly describes the system of service delivery to homeless persons in Dallas and examines how other cities deal with their homeless populations, particularly those that have centralized service delivery. This report also documents the growing disparities in property values between the northern and southern sectors of the DCBD and calculates the potential tax revenues, jobs and income that could be gene… more

The National Laboratory Gene Library Project

Description: The two National Laboratories at Livermore and Los Alamos have played a prominent role in the development and application of flow cytometry and sorting to chromosome classification and purification. Both laboratories began to receive numerous requests for specific human chromosomal types purified by flow sorting for gene library construction, but these requests were difficult to satisfy due to time and personnel constraints. The Department of Energy, through its Office of Health and Environment… more

Accommodation project for physically restricted personnel, Phase 1. Addendum: job-based criteria for nonskilled heavy laborers

Description: A study was conducted to determine possible accommodations for physically or medically restricted persons in the unskilled heavy labor group at Sandia National Laboratories. We conclude that only a very limited number of physically restricted persons might be accommodated under special conditions.

Some considerations for geothermal district heating

Description: The distribution of geothermal resources in relation to the location of population centers in the U.S. is considered. Capital aspects of district heating systems are discussed. Estimates are given of distribution network capital investment as a function of population in service area. Swedish and Icelandic cost experience is taken into consideration. The need for more specific assessment of the potential for direct use of geothermal energy is cited. (JGB)
