Analysis of Meteorological Tower Data, April 1950 - March 1952, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Description: Report issued by the Brookhaven National Laboratory discussing data collected from two BNL meteorological towers. As stated in the introduction, "results are presented in graphic form rather than tabular form" (p. 1). This report includes tables, maps, illustrations, and photographs.

Critical Strain Value for Alpha Recrystallized Rolled Uranium Sheet

Description: Abstract: "The percentage strain at which, or immediately higher than which, grain growth occurs on cold worked alpha recrystallize uranium sheet, appears to be at approximately 2-1/2 percent reduction in thickness. Grain growth from 20 microns to over 150 microns has been indicated for this region. This phenomena is especially noteworthy when deep drawn uranium shapes are to be reheated for a coining or restriking operation."

Design and economic study of hot off-gas storage system

Description: From introduction: "One of the most important factors which must be considered in the chemical processing of spent fuel elements is the safe and economic disposal of gaseous radioactive fission product wastes given off in the fuel element dissolution operation. For this reason work is underway at ORNL to study the various gas disposal methods that might be used to handle the radioactive fission product gases, krypton, xenon, and iodine."

Determining Sampling Reliability in Bulk Ores

Description: Abstract: "The problem of evaluating the method of sampling used on a particular uranium ore or concentrate is considered. It is pointed out that the purpose of this evaluation is to obtain data on possible biases of the sampling method, the way the sample is prepared for analysis, and the analysis itself. In addition, it is pointed out that some estimate of precision, either overall or individually, for each step is required. Examples of the use of the analysis of variance approach to these problems are given. Finally, some remarks are included on sampling problems associated with other materials used by the Food Materials Production Center."

Drilling in the Flatirons Locality, Monument Valley, Arizona

Description: From introduction: A subsurface exploration program was undertaken to investigate the concentration of uranium and vanadium in or near the base of the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation in the Flatirons locality, and to develop criteria whereby adjacent unexplored areas could be evaluated as to potential production capacity from study of geological and mineralogical features at the host rook outcrop. An earlier study of the area by C. G. Evensen of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission had shown that geological conditions favorable to the accumulation of commercial uranium deposits were present in the Flatirons area.
