Armed Services Committee made reference to the goals Armed Services Committee made reference to the goals that they were setting for the Board. The "basic goals," and I ' m quoting now from its report, "The basic goals in establishing an independent safety oversight board are to assure and enhance the safety of operations of DOE's nuclear facilities, and to restore public confidence that these facilities are operated without undue risk to public health and safety. " Now the report set forth, of course, a number of responsibilities given to the Board, but the report also went on to say, "Above all, the Board should be instrumental in restoring public confidence in DOE's management capabilities, a clear prerequisite for the continued production of the nuclear materials vital to the nation's security."

That translates, for us it translates to places like Oak Ridge, Savannah River, and Pantex, the operation of which are critical to national security, so the linkage may not be obvious, but a problem at Hanford can stop our nuclear weapons program. CHAIRMAN CONWAY: Keith, did you want to say one more thing? MR. KLEIN: Yeah. I just, in thinking about how you would characterize our oversight per the Savannah River and said we're increasing whereas Savannah River is decreasing, I guess, I didn't mean to confirm that Savannah River was decreasing.

After you have assessed the hazards and determined the appropriate controls, can our workforce actually work within those controls? These are only some of the day-to-day issues that must be addressed. Failure to be mindful of these issues can also have serious complications and consequences on a daily basis.

Energy, Science and Environment Energy, Science and Environment Before the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board Public Hearing October 21, 2003 Thank you, Mr. Chairman and members of the Board for inviting me to address you today. I welcome this opportunity to tell you about the progress the Department has made in assuring safe operations while accomplishing its missions. For my part, I am proud of the record to date. First, we need to understand the historical context underlying the actions of this Administration. The DOE of the 80's was in denial of its defense environmental responsibilities, liabilities and risks. This culminated in the FBI raid on Rocky Flats in 1989. The DOE of the 90's acknowledged the responsibilities and liabilities but didn't understand the risks and couldn't develop systems and processes for addressing them.

3 24 25 45 sub-tiers. So you might have to go through two or three parts of that organization before you could get an answer to a particular question or a decision. So I would say two or three tiers have been eliminated because of the removal of the Albuquerque Operations Office. VICE CHAIRMAN EGGENBERGER: Any tiers at Headquarters? MR. ERICKSON: I would say no. VICE CHAIRMAN EGGENBERGER: Okay. But now, you do have a tier still existing if you desire to use the Albuquerque Service Center, is that correct? MR. ERICKSON: I don't see that, I guess, as a tier. I see that as a Service Center. They provide service. They provide individual expertise, federal for the most part, but they also have some very valuable non-federal people under contract that

DR. MATTHEWS: So is it fair to say then that managing the contract means the business aspects, and as far as the safety and operational you've got strong ownership of that? MR. SCHEPENS: I've got strong ownership for the business, safety, and engineering aspects. It means it all, and I ' m technically competent to do that. You have to be technically competent, you just can't be business competent. DR. MATTHEWS: Good. Thank you. CHAIRMAN CONWAY: Thank you. You don't believe in the Harvard Business School that you don't

So my question is what is the level of support that you get to augment your 80 people from the Service Center, and are the skills and abilities of the people at the Service Center tuned to the needs of the safety issues at Y-12 since there weren't any people out of Oak Ridge now in the Service Center? MR. BRUMLEY: The Y-12 Site Office has in place a formal service arrangement with the Oak Ridge Operations Office to define the relationship. In many ways they are our service center, particularly with respect currently to financial matters, the allotment process and our HR [Human Relations] authority still

Detection of Thin Cirrus using a Combinaton of 1.38-um Reflectance and Detection of Thin Cirrus using a Combinaton of 1.38-um Reflectance and Window Brightness Temperature Difference Roskovensky, J.K. and Liou, K.N., Department of Atmospheric Sciences University of California, Los Angeles Thirteenth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting A new cloud detection scheme has been developed that utilizes 1.38-um reflectance in combination with 8.6-11 um brightness temperature difference to detect cirrus clouds. The 1.38-um channel on board MODIS is useful in detecting thin cirrus due to its high sensitivity to upper tropospheric clouds and a nearly negligible sensitivity to low-level reflectance. Dependent upon neighboring cloud type, water vapor concentration, and the viewing geometry, specific 1.38-um reflectance threshold levels can be

NOAA operational OLR estimation is based on flux equivalent temperature defined by the narrow band TBB. We found the relationship between ERBE OLR and brightness temperature (TBB) was different depending on cloud type classified by the split window. The brightness temperature difference between the split window (BTD) is a good indicator of water vapor amount and cloud optical properties. Therefore, we use the TBB and BTD to determine the regression

Detection of Thin Cirrus Using MODIS 1.38 Micron Reflection Detection of Thin Cirrus Using MODIS 1.38 Micron Reflection Roskovensky, J.K. and Liou, K.N., University of California, Los Angeles Twelfth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting The 1.38 µm channel on board MODIS may have significant advantage in detecting thin cirrus over existing methods due to its high sensitivity to upper tropospheric clouds and a nearly negligible sensitivity to low level reflectance. To investigate this potential, three different cloud schemes are employed. One based on the MODIS Cloud Mask Product (MOD35) which utilizes both visible and 1.38 µm reflectance thresholds. The second is a modified version of the cloud phase detection scheme presented in the paper by Ou et al (1996) that incorporates a series of visible, near and far

On Problems in Simulating Boundary-layer Cumulus Clouds with Third-Order On Problems in Simulating Boundary-layer Cumulus Clouds with Third-Order Turbulence Closure Models Cheng, A.(a) and Xu, K.-M.(b), Atmospheric Sciences, NASA Langley Research Center (a), Center for Atmospheric Sciences, Hampton University (b) Thirteenth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting A hierarchy of third-order turbulence closure models are used to simulate boundary-layer cumulus clouds from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement in this study. A moist spurious oscillation is found in the Level-3 model, which predicts all third moments. The period of the oscillation is about 1000 s, which is resulted from the interaction of the mean liquid water gradient and the liquid water buoyancy terms in the third-moment equations.

The RSS makes measurements of the spectral diffuse/direct ratio which are independent of calibration. We also extract typical optical depth analyis data from Langley regressions, and we retrieve column NO2 from correlation spectroscopy.

A Continuous Initial Estimate of Cloud Microphysical Structure Using A Continuous Initial Estimate of Cloud Microphysical Structure Using Surface-Based Remote Sensors and Parameterized Microphysics Miller, M.A. and Johnson, K.L., Brookhaven National Laboratory Twelfth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting Realistic heating rate profiles require an accurate and continuous accounting of cloud microphysical structure. To date, several highly constrained microphysical retrieval algorithms have been designed that operate on specific cloud systems. These algorithms are sufficiently specialized that they are generally applicable in a relatively narrow range of conditions. When these conditions are satisfied, heating profiles can be computed. While it may be possible to link several of these specialized algorithms to produce a semi-continuous description of cloud microphysical

Effective Diameter in Radiation Transfer: Definition, Applications and Effective Diameter in Radiation Transfer: Definition, Applications and Limitations Mitchell, D. L., Desert Research Institute Eleventh Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting Although the use of an effective radius for radiation transfer calculations in water clouds has been common for many years, the export of this concept to ice clouds has been fraught with uncertainty. A consensus appears to be building that a general definition of effective diameter, Deff, should involve the ratio of the size distribution (SD) volume (at bulk density) to projected area. This work further endorses this concept, describes its physical basis in terms of an effective photon path, and demonstrates the equivalency of a derived Deff definition for both water and ice clouds.

Exploration of Statistical Angular Radiance Closure in Cloudy Skies Exploration of Statistical Angular Radiance Closure in Cloudy Skies Evans, K.F.(a) and Wiscombe, W.J.(b), University of Colorado (a), NASA/Goddard (b) Twelfth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting Most ARM cloudy sky radiation closure experiments have been performed with broadband fluxes. However, it is difficult to understand the causes of the inevitable discrepencies between the modeled and observed broadband fluxes in those closure experiments because the fluxes are extensively integrated over angle and wavelength. For example, knowing that a particular comparison disagrees by 50 W/m^2 is not particularly helpful in discovering which aspects of cloud remote sensing, radiative transfer, or measurements might be in error.

The Parameterization of Shallow Cumulus Convection The Parameterization of Shallow Cumulus Convection Zhu, P. and Albrecht, B.A., University of Miami Twelfth Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting A successful representation of shallow cumulus convection in GCMs requires two parameterizations: one for calculating the subgrid fluxes of heat, moisture, and momentum; and the other for estimating the cloud cover and the associated cloud liquid water. Two common schemes used for these two parameterizations are the mass flux approach and the distribution approach such as SDM's (Sommeria, Deardorff, and Mellor) scheme, respectively. In this study, we verified the assumptions that lead to these schemes using LES data. The analyses indicate that the assumptions may not be appropriate for shallow cumulus convections, especially those over land when diurnal

Tropical Cloud Radiative Forcing and the Large-Scale Atmospheric Energy Tropical Cloud Radiative Forcing and the Large-Scale Atmospheric Energy Transport Tian, B. (a) and Ramanathan, V. (b), Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD Eleventh Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Science Team Meeting Moist static energy is exported within the atmosphere column, from equatorial latitudes to the subtropics by the Hadley circulation and from the western Pacific warm pool to the eastern Pacific cold tongue by the Walker circulation. It is the net energy fluxes into the atmosphere, i.e., the radiative and the turbulent latent and sensible heat fluxes from surface and the radiative flux at the top of the atmosphere, that maintain this energy transport and balance the resulting divergence of energy. We demonstrate here that the dominant term that provides the balance is the
