Final report, intermediate-depth, hole No. 1-78-U1, Socorro Prospect, New Mexico

Description: During the period May 19, 1977 to July 22, 1977, fourteen heat flow boreholes were completed on the Socorro Prospect, New Mexico. Rock types encountered ranged from unconsolidated Quaternary alluvium to dense volcanic rocks. Depths of the holes were from 60 to 440 feet with an average total depth of 288 feet. Geothermal gradients from the fourteen boreholes ranged from 0.32 to 7.58 F/100 ft. Thermal conductivity values of 3.6 to 7.5 mcal/cm-sec C were obtained from a total of 76 samples of drill cuttings. Individual heat flow values range from 0.3 to 5.4 HFU (1 HFU-1 {micro}cal/cm{sup 2}-sec). The linearity of the gradients for these holes suggests that heat transport in the shallow subsurface penetrated by these boreholes is predominantly by conduction; however, the magnitude of the heat flow for eight of the boreholes indicates that they are disturbed by groundwater movement. Based on published data as well as the results of the present survey, a value of about 2.5 HFU is probably representative of the background heat flow in the area of the Socorro Prospect. The heat flow determination of 5.4 HFU in borehole No. 5-77-B20 could indicate a prospect of commercial quality. Heat flow values greater than 3 HFU require either melting within the shallow crust or convective transport of heat by water or magma. This heat flow value, therefore, supports the observation of modern uplift in the Socorro area over a postulated magma chamber situated at a depth of 11 {+-} miles. Based on the data collected during this exploration project, they recommend that a second phase program of more closely-spaced heat flow boreholes be drilled on the Socorro Prospect to determine the lateral extent of the high heat flow zone characterized by hole No. 5-77-B20.

Design, construction, operation, and evaluation of solar systems for industrial process-heat applications in the intermediate-temperature range (212/sup 0/F to 550/sup 0/F). Environmental assessment

Description: The environmental impacts are assessed for a proposed 50,000 square foot field of single axis tracking, concentrating solar collectors along the Ohio River in southern Ohio. The facility is planned to produce process steam for use in the production of polystyrene. Absorbed solar energy would heat an aliphatic hydrocarbon synthetic heat transfer fluid to a maximum temperature of 500/sup 0/F. The existing environment is briefly described, particularly regarding air quality. The potential environmental impacts of the solar process heat system on the air, water, soil, endangered species and archaeological and historical resources are examined, including risks due to flood and glare and a comparison of alternatives. Also included are a Consent Judgment relating to two coal-fired boilers in violation of EPA regulations, property data of Gulf Synfluid 4CS (a candidate heat transfer fluid), piping and instrumentation diagrams and schematics, site grade and drainage plan, geological survey map, subsurface soil investigation, Ohio endangered species list, Ohio Archaeological Counsel certification list, and a study of heat transfer fluids and their properties.

Toward a Program Evaluation of the Community Mental Health Center Selected Application of the Parsonian Model

Description: The purpose of this study is to test the utility of Talcott Parsons' AGIL Model, i.e., Adaptation, Goal Attainment, Integration, and Latency (Pattern Maintenance) in evaluating the program effectiveness of a community mental health center (CMHC). The model provided a conceptual framework for the selection of appropriate variables. The dependent variable in this study is the overall evaluation of the CMHC as measured through the perception of community leaders. Fourteen hypotheses were constructed to identify and test the relationship among the AGIL criteria and the use of a selected set of independent variables. Data for this study were collected from primary and secondary sources. Secondary data were obtained from the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation in Austin and the CMHC center in Eton. Primary data were collected through personal interviews of general community leaders and influential persons in health-related activities in the community. The selected independent variables included the scope of leadership, the attitude towards this community, socio-economic status, knowledge of the CMHC, and the commitment and involvement in the CMHC. Data indicated that Parsons' criteria for evaluating the CMHC's program were comprehensive and related to each other both positively and negatively. Among the selected independent variables, the type of leader was found to be the best predictor of program evaluation of this CMHC. Overall, generalized community leaders were more defensive and favorable to the CMHC's program compared with the specialinterest leaders. The leaders also differed in their emphasis of the AGIL criteria. The generalized community leaders were conservative in emphasizeing the evaluative criteria of adaptation, integration, and pattern maintenance; the special-interest leaders gave more emphasis to the goal attainment function of CMHC. It was concluded that Parsons' AGIL model was useful for evaluating a CMHC. The variant direction of relationship among AGIL criteria indicated differences in ...

An Assessment of the Attitudes of the Personnel of Welfare-Oriented Governmental Agencies Toward the Poor

Description: This study explores and assesses the attitudes of the personnel of welfare-oriented governmental bureaucracies toward the poor. To fulfill these goals, a treatment and a control group were selected to compare their attitudes toward this group. They were measured by a disguised-structured instrument using the survey approach. It was found that the majority of respondents in both groups have a pro-poor attitude but it is more prevalent among the bureaucrats than among the students. In light of the knowledge we have of the effect of attitudes on the execution of policies, these results suggest that the policies governing the different programs studied are being executed to the advantage of the client.

A History of the Administrative Development and Contributions of the Federation of North Texas Area Universities, 1968-1991

Description: The Federation of North Texas Area Universities was mandated by the Coordinating Board of the Texas College and University System on 3 December 1968, and this consortium was given legal empowerment by the Texas State Legislature. The three federated Universities--North Texas State University, Texas Woman's University and East Texas State University--developed a plan of cooperative action to maximize use of available resources, a plan which included sharing facilities and faculty as well as developing joint program offerings. At a time in history when educational institutions were obliged to maximize their resources, minimize their expenditure, and eliminate duplication, the consortium was an innovative approach to higher education as well as an interesting alternative to having degree programs cut and funding diminished.
