Relationships Between the Geologic Environment and Mortality from Congenital Malformation

Description: Abstract: Deaths from congenital malformations as a fraction of total deaths for the period 1952-1956 were tabulated from vital statistics records of the United States. The data were tabulated by county and state and the results grouped by geologic province. The data from this preliminary study suggest that mortality incidence from malformation may be higher in those geologic provinces of the United States that contain major uranium ore deposits, uraniferous waters or helium concentrations. It is inferred that these provinces have a higher than average level of environmental radiation. Although the data do not permit conclusive statements regarding the etiology of congenital malformation in reference to the geologic environment, they are sufficiently provocative to warrant further investigation.

Evaluated Neutron Cross Sections for Tritium

Description: From foreword: Evaluation of the experimental data on the light isotopes, hydrogen through beryllium, was initiated by LASL in mid-1963. Since the data compilations available were completely inadequate for the task at hand, the tedious program of compiling and plotting was undertaken. As the work progressed an attempt was made to eliminate many of the obvious errors and inconsistencies found in the literature and existing compilations.

The High Intensity Food Irradiator: Report 17

Description: From introduction: A thorough investigation, both experimental and theoretical was carried out on plaque type radiators. Five phases of the work are reported: preliminary design analysis, experimental measurements, computational program and analytical studies, followed by a general discussion of source design principles. The results are summarized in graphs and formulae which may be applied to other design requirements.

Puerto Rico Energy Center Study: Executive Summary

Description: From introduction: The scope of work of the study was to compile and analyze information on the resources and requirements of the southwestern, southeastern, and north-central coastal regions of the Commonwealth, and assess industrial and agricultural activities which in conjunction with the power and desalting plants, might comprise the energy center complex. The study was also to identify the need for any experimental, pilot or demonstration projects which benefit the practical application of the Energy Center concept in Puerto Rico.
