Imagery from Infrared Scanning of the East and Southwest Rift Zones of Kilauea and the Lower Portion of the Southwest Rift Zone of Mauna Loa, Island of Hawaii

Description: From July 31 through August 4, 1973 night time flights for obtaining infrared imagery along the east and southwest rift zones of Kilauea and the southwest rift zone of Mauna Loa were undertaken on the island of Hawaii. Flights were also made on Hualalai and Kohala volcanoes but because of inconclusive results, they are not included in this report. Ground control stations had been established during daylight hours several days prior to starting the flight program. Students stationed at the ground central points guided the aircraft on predetermined flight paths by the use of directional lights which were visible to the plane's navigator. Results of the infrared scanning program are considered to be very successful. Events leading up to the final imagery on 8 x 10 color prints are discussed. The sum of $23,900 was designated by the NSF to be expended on aerial photogeologic work on the Hawaii Geothermal Project. Infrared scanning was the only aerial technique employed in this phase.

Missing Mass Spectra from p p ---> p X from 9-GeV/c to 300-GeV/c

Description: Missing mass spectra were obtained by measuring recoil protons from the reaction p + p {yields} p + X in the Jacobian peak region at |t| = 0.175 and 0.25 (GeV/c){sup 2}. The incident momentum range from 9 to 300 GeV/c was covered continuously by taking data during the acceleration ramp of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory machine. Our missing mass range varied from 1.5 to 8.5 GeV and we observed the well known N*(1688) and N*(2l90) but no significant structures at higher mass.

Distributions of Rapidity Intervals, Jet Ranges and Maximum Rapidity Gaps in Proton - Proton Interactions at 200-GeV/c

Description: The semiinclusive reaction p+p {yields} n charged particles + anything was investigated with nuclear emulsions irradiated with 200 GeV/c protons at the NAL accelerator (Batavia, US). They measured angles {Theta} of all charged particles. In every event particles were ordered on rapidity which was approximated by the value y = -lntg {Theta}lab/2. In every event particles were numbered on increasing the rapidity. Let us consider, for example, distributions of ordered rapidities and distributions of differences of various ordered rapidities and try to make a physical conclusion from the analysis of these distributions.

Flow transients in CLIRA and TSMDA

Description: From joint meeting of the American Nuclear Society and the Atomic Industrial Forum and Nuclear Energy Exhibition; San Francisco, California, USA (11 Nov 1973). The capability of the Closed Loop In-Reactor Assembly (CLIRA) in FFTF to accommodate various postulated events is demonstrated. These events include, in their order of severity, (a) flow coastdown, (b) inlet pipe break, and (c) inlet blockage. All of these accidents are extremely unlikely, nonetheless the consequences of even the most severe flow-transient accident is shown to cause no failure propagation to the reactor, even if a Test Section Meltdown Accident (TSMDA) should result.

Use of fission product nuclear data in life sciences

Description: From meeting on fission product nuclear data; Bologna, Italy (26 Nov 1973). Applications of fission product nuclear data and data on the fission process in uranium and transuranic elements are required for radiation protection of personnel and the general population for the following situations: to determine the toxicity to exposed individuals from externally located isotopes in the environment or in the fuel cycle; to determine the toxicity caused by deposition of radioactive materials in living systems; to estimate the radiation dose to patients during medical application of injected radioisotopes for diagnostic or therapeutic means; during the use of sealed sources for implantation in living tissue (brachytherapy); during the use of sealed sources at a distance from the patient for therapeutic purposes (teletherapy); to determine the environmental pathways for uncontrolled release of radioactive materials into biosphere; and for personnel protection during the applications of radioisotopes in medicine, biology, agriculture, and industry, including gamma ray and neutron radiography. It was concluded that available nuclear data are adequate for these purposes. (CH)

Acquisition, processing and display of gated cardiac scintigrams

Description: An improved method for non-traumatic and essentially noninvasive evaluation of left ventricular (LV) function with /sup 99m/Tc as the tracer was developed. This method combines previously used EKG gating techniques for cardiac blood pool visualization with new computerized acquisition, processing and display techniques. An Anger camera, a small computer, and a physiological synchronizer are used to acquire a sequence of eight scintigrams which span the entire cardiac cycle. Under our present protocol two twenty-minute sequences are obtained, one an LAO (50$sup 0$) projection, the other an RAO (30$sup 0$) projection. Subsequently these images are processed on-line with a digital filter to increase definition of the cardiac borders. The eight images are then displayed sequentially on a specially designed electronic monitor to give an impression of the beating heart somewhat analogous to that obtained with invasive contrast angiography.
