Flood Insurance Act Flood Insurance Act Jump to: navigation, search Statute Name National Flood Insurance Act Year 1968 Url [[File:|160px|link=]] Description References FEMA Library[1] Wikipedia[2] The National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 is a piece of legislation passed in the United States that led to the creation of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 created the Federal Insurance Administration and made flood insurance available for the first time. The Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 made the purchase of flood insurance mandatory for the protection of property located in Special Flood Hazard Areas. The National Flood Insurance Act is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The NFIP goals are two-fold:

Reform towards National Health Insurance in Malaysia: The equity implications  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Objective This paper assesses the potential equity impact of Malaysia's projected reform of its current tax financed system towards National Health Insurance (NHI). Methods The Kakwani's progressivity index was used to assess the equity consequences of the new NHI system (with flat rate NHI scheme) compared to the current tax financed system. It was also used to model a proposed system (with a progressive NHI scheme) that can generate the same amount of funding more equitably. Results The new NHI system would be less equitable than the current tax financed system, as evident from the reduction of Kakwani's index to 0.168 from 0.217. The new flat rate NHI scheme, if implemented, would reduce the progressivity of the health finance system because it is a less progressive finance source than that of general government revenue. We proposed a system with a progressive NHI scheme that generates the same amount of funding whilst preserving the equity at the Kakwani's progressivity index of 0.213. Conclusions A NHI system with a progressive NHI scheme is proposed to be implemented to raise health funding whilst preserving the equity in health care financing.

Then they can gorge themselves on worms, slugs and insects from the inundated bottomlands, or on food washed in from the fields and woods. The recent heavy rains have put the DesPlaines river far out of its banks. Fish from tributaries and bottomland ponds or lakes where they escaped suffocation under the ice last winter, are moving about actively and restocking those stretches of the streams where thousands perished They may even come upstream, over the dams, from the lower river, Very few fish are ever swept downstream over dams.

Has the National Health Insurance improved the inequality in the use of tertiary-care hospitals in Korea?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground To improve financial protection against catastrophic illness, the Korean government expanded the benefit coverage of the National Health Insurance (NHI) for cancer patients in 2005. This paper examined whether the policy has reduced income-inequality in the use of tertiary care hospitals. Methods We evaluated the effect of the policy on income-inequalities in outpatient visits and inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals, based on triple difference estimators. Using nationwide claims data of the NHI from 2002 to 2010, we compared cancer patients as a treatment group with liver disease and cardio-cerebrovascular disease as control groups and the lower-income with the highest-income group. Results Before the introduction of the policy, lower-income cancer patients utilized less inpatient and outpatient services in tertiary care hospitals than high-income patients did. After the benefit coverage was expanded, while the incidence and total number of inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals increased among cancer patients compared with liver diseases, lower-income cancer patients experienced a greater increase than those of higher-income did compared with both diseases. The use of outpatient services increased more in cancer patients than those of both diseases; however, the gap between the highest- and the lowest-income rarely decreased, except the incidence of visits when compared to liver disease. Conclusion Our findings indicated that the expanded NHI benefits coverage partially improved income-related inequalities in inpatient admissions to tertiary-care hospital, but not in outpatient visits.

Health Insurance and Health  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article reviews the recent literature on the causal effect of health insurance on health outcomes. The focus is mainly on private health insurance in the US. The objective is to illustrate measurement issues for both health insurance and health outcomes, and to discuss the methodological challenges for researchers as they address endogeneity of insurance. Finally, a brief overview of methods and results found in the source studies is provided. Certain patterns emerge: in general, insurance is more pronounced for all-cause mortality and for generic health outcomes as compared with disease-specific outcomes. In addition, vulnerable and medically needy populations are more likely to benefit from health insurance than the general population. Finally, there is some support for the notion that continuous health insurance coverage benefits health more than intermittent insurance, suggesting that sporadic coverage offers limited value.

Political risk insurance  

SciTech Connect

As international project development continues to expand, the insurance risks faced require more careful planning and consideration. Successful risk management and insurance needs for non-US projects demand careful thought and planning. Understanding the options available and the various pitfalls to avoid can be beneficial to project development. The concept of a successful implementation of a non-recourse, asset-based financing for an independent power producer in the electricity generation-starved areas of the world creates many opportunities. Developers, investment bankers, attorneys and equipment suppliers are positioning their companies in this emerging market. In the last year, opportunities have expanded around the world. In response, much time, effort and money have been consumed in developing projects. Insurance, often overlooked until the later phases of project development, has caused problems for a number of projects -- some of them insurmountable. On a macro basis, the project's broker will need to answer certain questions. For example, are the risks the same as they would be for project development in the United States or United Kingdom Are the underwriting philosophies of insurance companies the same Can insurance be purchased on the same term and conditions as usual, leading to successful project financing conclusions Without any question, the risks are greater, underwriters' philosophies are different, the terms and conditions offered by local markets will be significantly different and the procurement of insurance is much different from in the United States. The developer who can deal with governmental and special interest considerations, which often force the profile of insurance programs to become much more complicated, cumbersome and costly, will have an advantage.

Politics of social health insurance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper studies the political support for social health insurance when a private alternative exists. Individuals differ only by their risk. For the more realistic distributions of risk, a majority of agents do not want public insurance. However, in a representative democracy, or in a direct democracy with altruistic agents, we show that social insurance can be adopted, particularly for treatments which have the best cost-utility output. But if the low risk agents are more politically powerful than the high risk, the low cost treatments will not be refunded by social insurance, even if their utility is high.

...insurance coverage and the continuing rise in health care expenditures aroused such intense interest among policymakers. Adding an impetus to this renewed interest are other proposals that have been unveiled by an unusual collection of private interests — big business, organized labor, health plans... Congress has increased its efforts to develop strategies to make health insurance more affordable and accessible. Both political parties agree that their initial efforts should focus on children. This report reviews the history of the State Children's Health Insurance Program and looks at Congressional proposals to expand it to reduce the number of children without health insurance.

Displacement Mechanism of Polymer Flooding by Molecular  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Whether polymer flooding can enhance displacement efficiency or not is still a problem under debate. Laboratory experiment, numerical simulation and core data analysis are the commonly used means to study polymer flooding displacement efficiency. We discuss the limitations of these methods and employ molecular tribology to study the problem. The black–white ball action principle, i.e. the atom action model for describing the friction principle, is used to analyse the microscopic mechanism of oil displacement and describe the molecular interactions and displacement power during polymer flooding. Both tribology theory and dynamic rheological test show that molecular interactions during polymer flooding are bigger than that during water flooding. It is concluded that displacement efficiency of water flooding may be higher than that of polymer flooding at particular area; while polymer flooding can weaken the heterogeneity significantly, decrease ineffective injection and enhance the total displacement efficiency.

National Smart Water Grid  

SciTech Connect

The United States repeatedly experiences floods along the Midwest's large rivers and droughts in the arid Western States that cause traumatic environmental conditions with huge economic impact. With an integrated approach and solution these problems can be alleviated. Tapping into the Mississippi River and its tributaries, the world's third largest fresh water river system, during flood events will mitigate the damage of flooding and provide a new source of fresh water to the Western States. The trend of increased flooding on the Midwest's large rivers is supported by a growing body of scientific literature. The Colorado River Basin and the western states are experiencing a protracted multi-year drought. Fresh water can be pumped via pipelines from areas of overabundance/flood to areas of drought or high demand. Calculations document 10 to 60 million acre-feet (maf) of fresh water per flood event can be captured from the Midwest's Rivers and pumped via pipelines to the Colorado River and introduced upstream of Lake Powell, Utah, to destinations near Denver, Colorado, and used in areas along the pipelines. Water users of the Colorado River include the cities in southern Nevada, southern California, northern Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Indian Tribes, and Mexico. The proposed start and end points, and routes of the pipelines are documented, including information on right-of-ways necessary for state and federal permits. A National Smart Water Grid{trademark} (NSWG) Project will create thousands of new jobs for construction, operation, and maintenance and save billions in drought and flood damage reparations tax dollars. The socio-economic benefits of NWSG include decreased flooding in the Midwest; increased agriculture, and recreation and tourism; improved national security, transportation, and fishery and wildlife habitats; mitigated regional climate change and global warming such as increased carbon capture; decreased salinity in Colorado River water crossing the US-Mexico border; and decreased eutrophication (excessive plant growth and decay) in the Gulf of Mexico to name a few. The National Smart Water Grid{trademark} will pay for itself in a single major flood event.

Extortion and political-risk insurance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We consider the problem faced by firms operating in a foreign country characterized by weak governance. Our focus is on extortion based on the threat of expropriation and bureaucratic harassment. The bureaucrat's bargaining power is characterized by a general extortion mechanism adapted from the optimal auction theory in Myerson (1981). This characterization is used to analyze the determinants of the quality of governance and whether and how this is improved by political-risk insurance. This insurance reduces the bureaucrat's total revenue from corruption, but may also increase the risk of expropriation and extortion bribes. The analysis allows us to derive some policy recommendations with respect to public intervention in the political-risk insurance sector.

Flooding and conservation in the Albuquerque bosque  

SciTech Connect

Interest in the conservation of the Middle Rio Grande bosque has grown rapidly in the last decade. During that period, private organizations as well as governmental agencies have sharpened their focus on the issue, and in doing so have contributed to the development of a bosque biological management plan for the river reach between Cochiti Dam and Elephant Butte Reservoir. This increased regional attention reflects a growing national and international concern about human impacts on fluvial processes in large floodplain rivers. Because they impound large amounts of a river`s discharge and interfere with its natural flooding regime, dams can seriously disrupt the relationship between river basin hydrology and riparian zone functioning. In western North America, this interference reduces cottonwood germination and survival and, as will be discussed, negatively affects key ecological processes in riparian communities. In this paper the authors first review how the decoupling of basin hydrology from riparian forest processes has begun to affect the integrity of the Middle Rio Grande bosque ecosystem. Then they propose an alternative management scheme, with emphasis on the Albuquerque bosque, that centers on restoring its ecosystem functioning.

Improvements in fast-response flood modeling: desktop parallel computing and domain tracking  

SciTech Connect

It is becoming increasingly important to have the ability to accurately forecast flooding, as flooding accounts for the most losses due to natural disasters in the world and the United States. Flood inundation modeling has been dominated by one-dimensional approaches. These models are computationally efficient and are considered by many engineers to produce reasonably accurate water surface profiles. However, because the profiles estimated in these models must be superimposed on digital elevation data to create a two-dimensional map, the result may be sensitive to the ability of the elevation data to capture relevant features (e.g. dikes/levees, roads, walls, etc...). Moreover, one-dimensional models do not explicitly represent the complex flow processes present in floodplains and urban environments and because two-dimensional models based on the shallow water equations have significantly greater ability to determine flow velocity and direction, the National Research Council (NRC) has recommended that two-dimensional models be used over one-dimensional models for flood inundation studies. This paper has shown that two-dimensional flood modeling computational time can be greatly reduced through the use of Java multithreading on multi-core computers which effectively provides a means for parallel computing on a desktop computer. In addition, this paper has shown that when desktop parallel computing is coupled with a domain tracking algorithm, significant computation time can be eliminated when computations are completed only on inundated cells. The drastic reduction in computational time shown here enhances the ability of two-dimensional flood inundation models to be used as a near-real time flood forecasting tool, engineering, design tool, or planning tool. Perhaps even of greater significance, the reduction in computation time makes the incorporation of risk and uncertainty/ensemble forecasting more feasible for flood inundation modeling (NRC 2000; Sayers et al. 2000).

Demand for and Welfare Implications of Health Insurance, Theory of  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Understanding the demand for health insurance is challenging to economists because of the complexities associated with specifying the gain from its purchase. In this article, two theories are presented to explain why consumers purchase health insurance. The conventional theory holds that insurance is purchased because consumers prefer certain losses to uncertain ones of the same expected magnitude. The alternative theory holds insurance is purchased because consumers desire a transfer of income when ill. The two theories hold diametrically opposite views of the welfare implications of moral hazard, the additional health care that is consumed when one becomes insured.

Improved Efficiency of Miscible CO(2) Floods and Enhanced Prospects for CO(2) Flooding Heterogeneous Reservoirs.  

SciTech Connect

The overall goal of this project was to improve the efficiency of miscible C0{sub 2} floods and enhance the prospects for flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. This objective was accomplished through experimental and modeling research in three task areas: (1) foams for selective mobility control in heterogeneous reservoirs,( 2) reduction of the amount of C0{sub 2} required in C0{sub 2} floods, and (3) low IFT processe and the possibility of C0{sub 2} flooding in fractured reservoirs. This report provides results from the three-year project for each of the three task areas.

Aqueous flooding methods for tertiary oil recovery  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A method of aqueous flooding of subterranean oil bearing formation for tertiary oil recovery involves injecting through a well into the formation a low alkaline pH aqueous sodium bicarbonate flooding solution. The flooding solution's pH ranges from about 8.25 to 9.25 and comprises from 0.25 to 5 weight percent and preferably about 0.75 to 3.0 weight percent of sodium bicarbonate and includes a petroleum recovery surfactant of 0.05 to 1.0 weight percent and between 1 and 20 weight percent of sodium chloride. After flooding, an oil and water mixture is withdrawn from the well and the oil is separated from the oil and water mixture.

Review of trend analysis and climate change projections of extreme precipitation and floods in Europe  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary This paper presents a review of trend analysis of extreme precipitation and hydrological floods in Europe based on observations and future climate projections. The review summaries methods and methodologies applied and key findings from a large number of studies. Reported analyses of observed extreme precipitation and flood records show that there is some evidence of a general increase in extreme precipitation, whereas there are no clear indications of significant trends at large-scale regional or national level of extreme streamflow. Several studies from regions dominated by snowmelt-induced peak flows report decreases in extreme streamflow and earlier spring snowmelt peak flows, likely caused by increasing temperature. The review of likely future changes based on climate projections indicates a general increase in extreme precipitation under a future climate, which is consistent with the observed trends. Hydrological projections of peak flows show large impacts in many areas with both positive and negative changes. A general decrease in flood magnitude and earlier spring floods are projected for catchments with snowmelt-dominated peak flows, which is consistent with the observed trends. Finally, existing guidelines in Europe on design flood and design rainfall estimation are reviewed. The review shows that only few countries have developed guidelines that incorporate a consideration of climate change impacts.

Health Insurance in Historical Perspective, II: The Rise of Market-Oriented Health Policy and Healthcare  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article explores the intellectual history of market-based health policy in America. It opens by characterizing the two broad forms that American proposals for market-based health policy initially assumed: One resting on modern economic analysis of the demand side of healthcare markets and the other, initially depending far less heavily on formal economic analysis, but reflecting the conviction that public purposes could better be realized through supply-side reforms. The article reveals the extent to which some of the founding ideas and concerns of health economics took form through analysis of the health sector when national health insurance seemed imminent; and it briefly explores the consequences of these developments for the history of ideas about health insurance and for the development of healthcare markets on the ground. It offers conclusions about both the kinds of reform measures that American health policy has generated and role of economists in health policy.

Supporting technology for enhanced oil recovery: Chemical flood predictive model  

SciTech Connect

The Chemical Flood Predictive Model (CFPM) was developed by Scientific Software-Intercomp for the US Department of Energy and was used in the National Petroleum Council's (NPC) 1984 survey of US enhanced oil recovery potential (NPC, 1984). The CFPM models micellar (surfactant)-polymer (MP) floods in reservoirs which have been previously waterflooded to residual oil saturation. Thus, only true tertiary floods are considered. An option is available in the model which allows a rough estimate of oil recovery by caustic (alkaline) or caustic-polymer processes. This ''caustic'' option, added for the NPC survey, is not modeled as a separate process. Rather, the caustic and caustic-polymer oil recoveries are computed simply as 15% and 40%, respectively, of the MP oil recovery. In the CFPM, an oil rate versus time function for a single pattern is computed and the results are passed to the economic routines. To estimate multi-pattern project behavior, a pattern development schedule must be specified. After-tax cash flow is computed by combining revenues with capital costs for drilling, conversion and upgrading of wells, chemical handling costs, fixed and variable operating costs, injectant costs, depreciation, royalties, severance, state, federal, and windfall profit taxes, cost and price inflation rates, and the discount rate. A lumped parameter uncertainty routine is used to estimate risk, and allows for variation in computed project performance within an 80% confidence interval. The CFPM uses theory and the results of numerical simulation to predict MP oil recovery in five-spot patterns. Oil-bank and surfactant breakthrough and project life are determined from fractional flow theory. A Koval-type factor, based on the Dykstra-Parsons (1950) coefficient, is used to account for the effects of reservoir heterogeneity on surfactant and oil bank velocities. 18 refs., 17 figs., 27 tabs.

Substation flood protection: A case study  

SciTech Connect

On July 18, 1996, the City of Naperville, Illinois encountered a substantial storm event ranging from nine to fourteen inches of rainfall across town in less than twelve hours, with the majority falling over a four-hour period. The watershed containing the City`s Westside substation encountered the most significant rainfall totals, resulting in a flood crest in the substation area of approximately thirteen inches of water. The station is a 138 kV substation, and the flooding of this station caused a power loss to approximately 60% of the City`s customers for more than eight hours. The water level posed no threat to yard equipment, however, within the substation control building, flood water shorted out control circuits and damaged transmission line relay systems. Crews worked round-the-clock for most of a week to return all transmission lines and transformers to normal service. The 15 kV switchgear ultimately had to be replaced due to recurring control circuit problems. Once the station was restored and the cleanup efforts underway, the City embarked on an evaluation to determine what condition or conditions allowed the flooding to occur, and what could be done in the future to avoid this problem to ensure that the customers of Naperville would not experience another service outage of this magnitude due to flooding.

Insurance demand and country risks: A nonlinear panel data analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper investigates the impact of country risks, including political, financial, and economic risks, on the income elasticity of insurance demand. Using the panel smooth transition regression model, we find that there is a significant regime-switching effect concerning the impact of country risks on the income elasticity of insurance demand. A full-sample analysis shows that the income elasticity of insurance demand decreases when country risks diminish. In a subsample analysis based on income level, legal origin, and restriction on banks' participation in insurance activities, we find that the elasticity diminishes in general when economic risk drops. When political risk is lower, the elasticity decreases in countries with high-income, common law origin, and insurance activities permitted by banks, whereas a clear pattern cannot be identified in the case of financial risk.

Neuro-simulation modeling of chemical flooding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Chemical flooding has proved to enhance oil recovery of reservoirs considerably. Development strategies of this method are more efficient when they consider both aspects of operation (recovery factor, RF) and economics (net present value, NPV). In this study, a multi-layer perceptron (MLP) neural network is developed for modeling of chemical flooding using surfactant and polymer via prediction of both RF and NPV in a unique model. The modeling algorithm is divided into three processes: training, generalization, and operation. In training process, the initial structure of the network is trained, and then the architecture of the trained network is optimized for reduction of prediction errors in generalization process. Furthermore, the optimum structure is compared with other methods like Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural network, quadratic and multi-objective regressions. The optimum architecture of the network contains one hidden layer with 8 neurons and training function of Bayesian regularization. In operation process, sensitivity analysis is studied for evaluating of effective parameters (inputs) on the performance of chemical flooding. The error is always less than 5% during the implementation of all processes. The results demonstrate that neuro-simulation of chemical flooding is reliable, inexpensive, fast in computational effort, and capable in accurate prediction of both RF and NPV in one model.

Availability and pricing of insurance for offshore operations  

SciTech Connect

With surprisingly few exceptions, the insurance industry has been able to meet the coverage requirements presented by the rapid change in offshore risks over the past dozen or so years. It has been necessary for the insurance industry to provide: broad all risk perils; coverage for accidents resulting from error in design; coverage for loss of income as a result of delay in start-up; and protection for loss due to certain political risks. This paper discusses various aspects of the insurance, risks, deductibles and pricing for fixed structures and pipelines, mobile equipment, removal of wreck or debris, cost of well control and redrilling expense, and others.

Political risk insurance: the new trend for energy projects  

SciTech Connect

Cogeneration sponsors are responding to the new political risk policies offered by insurance companies to cover the cost of legal and regulatory delays. Nervous investors like the new risk coverage, part of a force majeure package, that will pay the cost of compliance with new regulations. Investment bankers are offering financial incentives in the form of lower interest rate for the protection. The lack of an established data base is keeping many insurance companies wary of underwriting a potential catastrophe if, for example, a new rule required the closing of virtually all plants for safety or engineering changes. Insurance coverage of this type is not available for nuclear plants.

Adaptive Probabilistic Flooding for Multipath Routing  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this work, we develop a distributed source routing algorithm for topology discovery suitable for ISP transport networks, that is however inspired by opportunistic algorithms used in ad hoc wireless networks. We propose a plug-and-play control plane, able to find multiple paths toward the same destination, and introduce a novel algorithm, called adaptive probabilistic flooding, to achieve this goal. By keeping a small amount of state in routers taking part in the discovery process, our technique significantly limits the amount of control messages exchanged with flooding -- and, at the same time, it only minimally affects the quality of the discovered multiple path with respect to the optimal solution. Simple analytical bounds, confirmed by results gathered with extensive simulation on four realistic topologies, show our approach to be of high practical interest.

Comparing ensemble projections of flooding against flood estimation by continuous simulation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary Climate impact studies focused on the projection of changing flood risk are increasingly utilized to inform future flood risk policy. These studies typically use the output from global (GCMs) and regional climate models (RCMs). However the direct application of GCM/RCM output is controversial as often significant biases exist in predicted rainfall; instead a number of alternative ‘correction’ approaches have emerged. In this study an ensemble of \\{RCMs\\} from the ENSEMBLES and UKCP09 projects are applied, via a number of application techniques, to explore the possible impacts of climate change on flooding in the Avon catchment, in the UK. The analysis is conducted under a continuous simulation methodology, using a stochastic rainfall generator to drive the HBV-light rainfall run-off model under a parameter uncertainty framework. This permitted a comparison between the projections produced by differing application approaches, whilst also considering the uncertainty associated with flood risk projections under observed conditions. The results from each of the application approaches project an increase in annual maximum flows under the future (2061–2099) climate scenario. However the magnitude and spread of the projected changes varied significantly. These findings highlight the need to incorporate multiple approaches in climate impact studies focusing on flood risk. Additionally these results outline the significant uncertainties associated with return period estimates under current climate conditions, suggesting that uncertainty over this observed record already poses a challenge to develop robust risk management plans.

Adaptive time step in simulation of progressive flooding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Time accurate simulation of progressive flooding inside a ship often requires a short time step. However, after the initial phases, as the flooding progresses to undamaged compartments, the flow rates decrease and much longer time step could be used. Yet the collapsing of non-watertight structures may cause additional phases of fast flooding, where a shorter time step is required. In this paper the use of an adaptive time step in flooding simulation is discussed, and a new approach to this problem is presented. The time step is automatically adjusted during the simulation on the basis of the maximum absolute velocity of the free surface levels in the flooded compartments. The method is tested with small case studies, presenting typical flooding conditions in passenger ships.

Pediatric access to dermatologists: Medicaid versus private insurance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background There is disparity in access to outpatient care for Medicaid beneficiaries. This inequity disproportionately impacts children. Access for children with skin disease may be especially limited. Objective We sought to compare access to dermatologists for new pediatric patients insured by Medicaid versus a private plan. Methods We surveyed 13 metropolitan markets by conducting secret-shopper scripted telephone calls to dermatology providers listed by Medicaid health plans. Paired calls, differing by insurance type, were made to each office on the same day, portraying a parent requesting a new appointment for a child with eczema. Results We called the offices of 723 Medicaid-listed providers. Final analysis included 471 dermatologists practicing general dermatology. Of these, an average of 44% refused a new Medicaid-insured pediatric patient. The average wait time for an appointment did not significantly vary between insurance types. Assuming that dermatologists not listed as Medicaid providers do not see Medicaid-insured children, our data indicate that pediatric Medicaid acceptance rates ranged from 6% to 64% by market, with an overall market size-weighted average acceptance rate of 19%. Relative reimbursement levels for Medicaid-insured patients did not correlate with acceptance rates. Limitations Although the most current health plan directories were used to create calling lists, these are dynamic. The sample sizes of confirmed appointments were in part limited by a lack of referral letters and/or health plan identification numbers. Only confirmed appointments were used to calculate average wait times. Conclusions Access to dermatologists is limited for Medicaid-insured children with eczema.

Equilibrium social insurance with policy-motivated parties  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We study the political economy of social insurance with voters' heterogeneity on two dimensions: income and risk levels. Individuals vote over the extent of social insurance, which they can complement on the private market. We model political competition à la Wittman, with two parties maximizing the utility of their members. We obtain equilibrium policy differentiation with the Left party proposing more social insurance than the Right party. The Right party attracts the less risky and richer individuals, and the Left party attracts the more risky and poorer individuals. In equilibrium, each party is tying for winning. Unlike the median voter outcome, our equilibrium outcome depends on the whole income and risk distribution. Conditional on the risk distribution, more income inequality does not necessarily lead to higher demand for social insurance. In fact we find that more income polarization leads both parties to propose less social insurance. We also contrast our political equilibrium with the Rawlsian and utilitarian outcomes. Finally, we provide in the Appendix a first try at calibrating the model with real data, using U.S. data from the PSID survey.

Loss and damage from the double blow of flood and drought in Mozambique  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate variability and climate change is currently an important topic being discussed under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This study investigated loss and damage from floods and droughts among rural households living near the Limpopo, Zambezi and Save rivers in Mozambique. We used a questionnaire survey (n = 303) and qualitative research tools. The study showed that farmers in the research areas were caught between two evils. In the uplands, conditions for agriculture are extremely poor and crop yields are low; moreover, farmers face considerable risk of crop failure when drought hits. In the lowlands, close to the river, soil and water conditions are more favourable, but these areas experience frequent floods. Evidence from this study shows that farmers in the research areas are severely affected by both floods and droughts, and their capacity to cope and adapt is limited. With very little livelihood diversification and poor access to markets, crop failures translate almost directly into severe food insecurity among the population.

Techniques for estimating flood hydrographs for ungaged urban watersheds  

SciTech Connect

The Clark Method, modified slightly, was used to develop a synthetic dimensionless hydrograph that can be used to estimate flood hydrographs for ungaged urban watersheds. Application of the technique results in a typical (average) flood hydrograph for a given peak discharge. Input necessary to apply the technique is an estimate of basin lagtime and the recurrence interval peak discharge. Equations for this purpose were obtained from a recent nationwide study on flood frequency in urban watersheds. A regression equation was developed which relates flood volumes to drainage area size, basin lagtime, and peak discharge. This equation is useful where storage of floodwater may be a part of design or flood prevention. 6 refs., 17 figs., 5 tabs.

Erosive coping after the 2011 floods in Kenya  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Periodic river floods have devastating social and economic impacts on poor households in the low-lying coastal and western regions of Kenya. This paper focuses on how households in Bunyala District coped with the impacts of flooding, and particularly the December 2011 River Nzoia flood. The data for the study was collected through a survey of 400 households, three focus group discussions, four in-depth interviews and six key informant interviews. Of the surveyed household-heads, 393 (98.4%) reported negative impacts of the flood on farming, livestock and/or property. Coping strategies at household level included temporary relocation and migration, reduced expenditure on household needs, engagement in extra income-generating activities, selling of property and reliance on support from public and private agencies. The findings reveal that many of the coping measures that people use are erosive, as they have negative long-term effects on household livelihood sustainability.

Numerical Simulation of Flood Levels for Tropical Rivers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Flood forecasting is important for flood damage reduction. As a result of advances in the numerical methods and computer technologies, many mathematical models have been developed and used for hydraulic simulation of the flood. These simulations usually include the prediction of the flood width and depth along a watercourse. Results obtained from the application of hydraulic models will help engineers to take precautionary measures to minimize flood damage. Hydraulic models were used to simulate the flood can be classified into dynamic hydraulic models and static hydraulic models. The HEC-2 static hydraulic model was used to predict water surface profiles for Linggi river and Langat river in Malaysia. The model is based on the numerical solution of the one dimensional energy equation of the steady gradually varied flow using the iteration technique. Calibration and verification of the HEC-2 model were conducted using the recorded data for both rivers. After calibration, the model was applied to predict the water surface profiles for Q10, Q30, and Q100 along the watercourse of the Linggi river. The water surface profile for Q200 for Langat river was predicted. The predicted water surface profiles were found in agreement with the recorded water surface profiles. The value of the maximum computed absolute error in the predicted water surface profile was found to be 500 mm while the minimum absolute error was 20 mm only.

First, we develop and test a parallel design algorithm to optimize polymer floods with respect to net present value in terms of slug size, polymer concentration, and initiation; in which, simulations are run simultaneously and the results are combined through scaling of optimal slug size. In terms of optimal strategies, the optimization results illustrate that polymer-flooding design – with respect to concentration, slug size, and initiation – is more intuitive than earlier expected. It is always beneficial to start polymer flooding as soon as possible preferably before any waterflooding. The optimal slug size is close to being continuous. The optimal concentration is generally high and represents a balance between mobility gains and injectivity losses. Second, we quantify the impact of uncertainty on both the design and profitability of polymer flooding. This serves as a guide to associated data acquisition efforts, where pre-polymer flooding initiation, efforts can be focused on reducing uncertainties of high impact factors thereby increasing the probability of success.

A NEW GENERATION CHEMICAL FLOODING SIMULATOR  

SciTech Connect

The premise of this research is that a general-purpose reservoir simulator for several improved oil recovery processes can and should be developed so that high-resolution simulations of a variety of very large and difficult problems can be achieved using state-of-the-art computing and computers. Such a simulator is not currently available to the industry. The goal of this proposed research is to develop a new-generation chemical flooding simulator that is capable of efficiently and accurately simulating oil reservoirs with at least a million gridblocks in less than one day on massively parallel computers. Task 1 is the formulation and development of solution scheme, Task 2 is the implementation of the chemical module, and Task 3 is validation and application. We have made significant progress on all three tasks and we are on schedule on both technical and budget. In this report, we will detail our progress on Tasks 1 through 3 for the first six months of the project.

Terrorism and business: a view from an insurance practitioner  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

It has been said that terrorism as a risk is uninsurable because it lacks a statistical basis for analysis and, fundamentally, is a man-made phenomenon. Adrian Lewers, a terrorism, political risk and credit underwriter at Lloyd's syndicate Beazley, discusses some of the factors that permit businesses and insurers to evaluate both the risk and threat of a terrorist event in the absence of pure statistical analysis.

On the consumption insurance effects of long-term care insurance in Japan: Evidence from micro-level household data  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using micro-level household data in the 2001 Comprehensive Survey of the Living Conditions of the People on Health and Welfare compiled by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, this paper examines how having a household member in need of long-term nursing care can result in welfare losses measured in terms of consumption. In so doing, this study evaluates the role of the public long-term care insurance scheme implemented in Japan in April 2000. The results indicate that when households include a disabled family member, household consumption net of long-term care costs do not decrease as much as before the introduction of long-term care insurance. Further, when compared with the surveys conducted in 1998, the adverse effects on consumption net of long-term care costs have become much weaker. These findings suggest that the introduction of social insurance in 2000 helped Japanese households to reduce the welfare losses associated with a disabled family member.

Steam management in composite mature steam floods, Midway Sunset field  

SciTech Connect

Vogel noted that oil production rates in many steam floods are not predictable from steam injection rates and must be estimated on some other basis. He presented a conservative method, based on simple models assuming instantaneous steam overlay, to calculate heat requirements once the oil rate is known. By more accurately describing the reservoir being flooded and the steam flood process, Vogel`s method was refined resulting in significant steam savings for SWEPI`s leasehold in the northern part of the Midway Sunset field. Analytical expressions are presented for (1) the heat required to support a steam chest descending into an oil column, (2) the heating of a cap or base rock already partially heated by an adjacent steam flood and (3) the heating of a cap or base rock which is exposed to a uniformly growing steam zone. A method is also described to operate a mature steam flood at a constant oil steam ratio while scavenging some heat stored in the steam zone.

Correlate the flooding of packed columns a new way  

SciTech Connect

Packed-column pressure-drop and flooding-point prediction has received new attention recently. These publications, like most earlier ones, focus on gas-flow-induced pressure drop, and flooding due to liquid entrainment in the packing. A few years ago, some problems occurred when packing was applied in high-pressure distillation service, such as ethylene and propylene superfractionators. Apparently, the maximum liquid-through-put capacity was lower than predicted from the gas-flow-induced flooding correlations. Such situation exists when predicting the performance of valve trays in similar service: liquid downflow can be limiting before entrainment flooding occurs. The reason for this behavior is the relatively low liquid and high vapor density of these high-pressure services. The liquid/vapor density ratios are typically 10--15:1 for such hydrocarbon systems. In contrast, for low-pressure water/air systems, this ratio is in the range 300--800:1. A large amount of experimental data for low-pressure systems has been used to correlate pressure drop and flooding, but it doesn't cover the technically important region of low liquid and high vapor density. This Article suggests an approach for understanding such liquid-limited systems.

Contribution to Logistics of Catastrophes in Consequence of Floods  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The flood is considered to be a phenomenon that consists of different, interlinked stages or phases. Each stage of flooding from flood hazard, through course itself up to after-rehabilitation actions, can be solved by methods of risk management and crisis. The methods propose systematic procedure of identification, analysis, risk assessment and proposal planning process to avert catastrophic situations. Each proposal contains design of logistic processes consisting of specific logistic elements and logistics processes of catastrophes. Catastrophic scenarios reflect the threat rate of protected interests by development of the risks rate that can be observed in the development curve of the life cycle of assessed risk and the development level of safety due to their causal relationship. Quick response to the catastrophic development is conditional to identification rate of the environment in which the catastrophic scenario is gradually enacted. Therefore visualization of threatened objects by geoinformative system instruments including the development of actual geodatabases is imperative.

Integrating synthetic flood data for selection of regional frequency distribution  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Regional frequency distributions are estimated using respective regional average coefficients of variance, skewness and kurtosis. The regional average coefficients may be significantly biased for a region with inadequate hydrometric data. The objective of this study is to select suitable regional frequency distributions in previously identified five hydrologic homogeneous regions of Nepalese territory with larger focus on data-scarce regions. Incorporation of synthetic flood data has been proposed in two hydrologic regions which have insufficient hydrometric data. A SimHyd rainfall runoff model was employed for the generation of synthetic flood data to augment hydrometric data inadequacy. Selection of best-fit regional frequency distribution was identified using L-moment ratio diagrams and goodness-of-fit measure. The selected distributions were tested by comparing observation and regional distribution factors at eight observation hydrometric sites. Incorporation of synthetic flood data enabled to reduce regional distribution factor error to 6% from that of 10%.

Temporal flooding of regular islands by chaotic wave packets  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We investigate the time evolution of wave packets in systems with a mixed phase space where regular islands and chaotic motion coexist. For wave packets started in the chaotic sea on average the weight on a quantized torus of the regular island increases due to dynamical tunneling. This flooding weight initially increases linearly and saturates to a value which varies from torus to torus. We demonstrate for the asymptotic flooding weight universal scaling with an effective tunneling coupling for quantum maps and the mushroom billiard. This universality is reproduced by a suitable random matrix model.

Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are vulnerable to the Denial of Service (DoS) attack. In this work, we focus on one specific DoS attack, Distributed DoS (DDoS) flooding attack. First of all, we present a quantitative model to characterise the flooding attack. We then provide analytical models of detecting flooding attack. In these models, we give an analytical framework to evaluate the number of routing control packets. At last, we design two flow based detection features to identify the flooding attacks. Both simulation and analytical results show that our proposed detection approach can detect the flooding attack accurately and effectively.

The overall goal of this project is to improve the efficiency of miscible CO{sub 2} floods and enhance the prospects for flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. This objective is being accomplished by extending experimental research in three task areas: (1) foams for selective mobility control in heterogeneous reservoirs, (2) reduction of the amount of CO{sub 2} required in CO{sub 2} floods, and (3) miscible CO{sub 2} flooding in fractured reservoirs. This report provides results of the first year of the three-year project for each of the three task areas.

Risk assessment of climate systems for national security.  

SciTech Connect

Climate change, through drought, flooding, storms, heat waves, and melting Arctic ice, affects the production and flow of resource within and among geographical regions. The interactions among governments, populations, and sectors of the economy require integrated assessment based on risk, through uncertainty quantification (UQ). This project evaluated the capabilities with Sandia National Laboratories to perform such integrated analyses, as they relate to (inter)national security. The combining of the UQ results from climate models with hydrological and economic/infrastructure impact modeling appears to offer the best capability for national security risk assessments.

Determinants of deposit-insurance adoption and design  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper identifies factors that influence decisions about a country's financial safety net, using a comprehensive data set covering 180 countries during the 1960–2003 period. Our analysis focuses on how private interest-group pressures, outside influences, and political-institutional factors affect deposit-insurance adoption and design. Controlling for macroeconomic shocks, quality of bank regulations, and institutional development, we find that both private and public interests, as well as outside pressure to emulate developed-country regulatory schemes, can explain the timing of adoption decisions and the rigor of loss-control arrangements. Controlling for other factors, political systems that facilitate intersectoral power sharing dispose a country toward design features that accommodate risk-shifting by banks.

Chapter 11 - Political Risk Guarantees, Insurance, and Finance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary If a project company is in a developing country and imports equipment for the project, export credit agencies (ECAs) can provide political risk cover, full cover, or direct loans. If political risk or full cover is provided, \\{ECAs\\} can also provide funding support through interest subsidies to commercial banks. Thus, either by direct loans or through interest rate subsidies, \\{ECAs\\} may enable the exporter to offer competitive fixed-rate finance. \\{ECAs\\} also provide investment insurance (against political risks) for equity investors. Export credits used in project finance are normally buyer credits (direct loans provided to the importer by the exporter's bank or the ECA itself) rather than supplier credits (loans provided by the exporter to the importer, with finance from the exporter's bank or ECA). Therefore, \\{ECAs\\} deal with the exporter or the exporter's bank rather than the project company, although sponsors of major projects usually have their own direct discussions with ECAs.

Rebuilding your flooded home: Guidelines for incorporating energy efficiency  

SciTech Connect

Repairs to your flood-damaged home can add energy efficiency at the same time you address pressing structural needs, mainly by replacing and upgrading insulation in walls and floors, and checking your foundation for flood damage. Many energy efficiency options are available to you today that may not have been widely available when you built your house even if that was only a few years ago. Cost-effectiveness depends on several factors, including cost of fuel and materials, efficiency levels of the structure and components, and climate. This booklet offers some general tips to improve the efficiency of your home`s shell and equipment. Additional information on any issue covered in this booklet is available from various agencies within or near your community, including your state energy office, local community action agency, utilities, Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offices.

Calculations of risk: Towards an understanding of insurance as a moral and political technology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper is a contribution to the continuing examination of the linkages and interdependencies between politics and forms of calculation. It uses the case of life insurance in England to argue that the constitution of risk as the object of insurance is linked to a series of important transformations in the aims and means of the liberal government of the “social” domain. Insurance and its associated calculative techniques have been constituted as moral and political technologies and relied upon by a succession of governmental-administrative projects of social regulation culminating in, but not exhausted by, the construction of a state-sponsored “insurantial” apparatus.

Development of cost-effective surfactant flooding technology. Final report  

SciTech Connect

Task 1 of this research was the development of a high-resolution, fully implicit, finite-difference, multiphase, multicomponent, compositional simulator for chemical flooding. The major physical phenomena modeled in this simulator are dispersion, heterogeneous permeability and porosity, adsorption, interfacial tension, relative permeability and capillary desaturation, compositional phase viscosity, compositional phase density and gravity effects, capillary pressure, and aqueous-oleic-microemulsion phase behavior. Polymer and its non-Newtonian rheology properties include shear-thinning viscosity, permeability reduction, inaccessible pore volume, and adsorption. Options of constant or variable space grids and time steps, constant-pressure or constant-rate well conditions, horizontal and vertical wells, and multiple slug injections are also available in the simulator. The solution scheme used in this simulator is fully implicit. The pressure equation and the mass-conservation equations are solved simultaneously for the aqueous-phase pressure and the total concentrations of each component. A third-order-in-space, second-order-in-time finite-difference method and a new total-variation-diminishing (TVD) third-order flux limiter are used that greatly reduce numerical dispersion effects. Task 2 was the optimization of surfactant flooding. The code UTCHEM was used to simulate surfactant polymer flooding.

Increase of the reliability and cost effectiveness of the Leningrad flood control gates  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents the results of a detailed analysis of competing designs of rolling gates and floating radial gates for the Leningrad flood control system and describes from a hydraulic engineering standpoint those aspects of the gate designs which led to the conclusion that they did not have sufficient reliability for the loads encountered under flood conditions. Specific design revisions which take into account not only the flood loads but also the navigation and dock parts of the structures were investigated and recommended.

Physical simulation and fine digital study of thermal foam compound flooding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

According to the similarity criterion of 3D physical simulation of thermal recovery, experimental parameters of 3D physical simulation of steam flooding and thermal foam compound flooding in extra-heavy oil reservoirs of the Gudao Oilfield were calculated, and relevant experiments were carried out. Based on the experimental results, 3D fine numerical simulation was carried out to analyze the steam flooding and thermal foam compound flooding in heavy oil reservoirs. The results show that thermal foam compound flooding could effectively inhibit steam channeling and improve sweep efficiency, and thus enhance the oil recovery in heavy oil reservoirs after steam flooding. Technological parameters of thermal foam compound flooding were optimized according to the results of fine numerical simulation. The optimum injection method is foam-slug injection, the optimal steam injection rate is 25 mL/min, nitrogen injection rate is 1 000 mL/min (standard conditions), the time of foam-slug injection is 1.0 min and the interval between foam-slugs is about 10-20 min during thermal foam-slug injection. At last, the similarity criterion was employed for inversion calculation of the optimization results. Based on the results, optimal field injection and production parameters can be confirmed. The ultimate recovery ratio of thermal foam compound flooding in super-heavy oil reservoirs could reach 42.15%, which is 12.50% higher than steam flooding.

National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) is a DOE-funded distributed network of databases and data sites. Much of the risk of geothermal energy development is associated with exploring for, confirming and characterizing the available geothermal resources. The overriding purpose of the NGDS is to help mitigate this up-front risk by serving as a central gateway for geothermal and relevant related data as well as a link to distributed data sources. Assessing and categorizing the nation's geothermal resources and consolidating all geothermal data through a publicly accessible data system will support research, stimulate public interest, promote market acceptance and investment, and, in turn, the growth of the geothermal industry. Major participants in the NGDS to date include universities, laboratories, the Arizona Geological Survey and Association of American State Geologists (Arizona Geological Survey, lead), the Geothermal Resources Council, and the U.S. Geological Survey. The Geothermal Energy Association is collaborating with the NGDS to insure that it meets the needs of the geothermal industry.

9 - Climate Change and Sea Level Rise in the Mekong Delta: Flood, Tidal Inundation, Salinity Intrusion, and Irrigation Adaptation Methods  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Mekong Delta of Vietnam extends over an extensive, low-lying flat area, with an average elevation of only about 1 m above mean sea level. It is considered the country’s main rice bowl, as it contributes 48% of national food production and more than 85% of annual rice exports. However, the Mekong Delta currently faces a number of challenges, as it is affected by annual floods, drought, and salinity intrusion. In the context of climate change and sea water level rise, these natural problems may become more severe, with inundation and salinity intrusion eventually becoming the norm under severe scenarios of sea level rise. In the future, salinity intrusion is expected to gradually start earlier in the dry season, posing a threat to the sustainable agricultural development of the Mekong Delta and food security in Vietnam. Through an in-depth analysis of different scenarios of sea level rise, this chapter proposes several measures for flood, tidal inundation, and salinity intrusion protection, while considering the sustainable development of the Mekong Delta in the context of climate change.

Partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamides with superior flooding and injection properties  

SciTech Connect

A versatile process for the manufacture of PHPA has been developed. The applicability of this process for the production of PHPA in the field has been demonstrated. Based on performance in radial disk floods, Marathon PHPA's exhibit ideal mobility behavior. The superior performance of the Marathon polymers is attained without near wellbore plugging. An ultracentrifugation technique was developed to obtain both average molecular weights and molecular weight distributions for PHPA. The performance and solution properties of Marathon's PHPA's correlate well with their average molecular weights. Indirect evidence indicates that microgel may be responsible for the near wellbore plugging observed with the commercial products evaluated. Polymer augmented waterflooding is most beneficial in heterogeneous formations.

Fluctuation Flooding Method (FFM) for accelerating conformational transitions of proteins  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A powerful conformational sampling method for accelerating structural transitions of proteins “Fluctuation Flooding Method (FFM) ” is proposed. In FFM cycles of the following steps enhance the transitions: (i) extractions of largely fluctuating snapshots along anisotropic modes obtained from trajectories of multiple independent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and (ii) conformational re-sampling of the snapshots via re-generations of initial velocities when re-starting MD simulations. In an application to bacteriophage T4 lysozyme FFM successfully accelerated the open-closed transition with the 6 ns simulation starting solely from the open state although the 1-?s canonical MD simulation failed to sample such a rare event.

Wyoming chemical flood test for oil recovery shows promise  

SciTech Connect

This project was begun in 1978 to provide data to promote surfactant chemical flooding on a commercial scale in the low-permeability reservoirs of eastern Wyoming and Colorado. The Big Muddy Field in Wyoming was selected because of the large resource, potential net pay, and high oil saturation. Injection began on February 20, 1980 with a surfactant flooding process. Water mixed with salt (brine) was injected as a preflush which was completed on January 20, 1981. This produced 12,122 bbl of oil. The next step involves injecting a surfactant, co-surfactant (alcohol), and polymer. When the injection of the surfactant is completed in the summer of 1982, polymer alone will be injected. Polymer injection will be completed sometime in 1984. The final phase will be a followup water drive scheduled for 1984-1987. As of February 1, 1982, 36,683 bbl of oil had been produced. About 88 bbl of oil per day is being produced, compared to only about 41 bbl per day in February 1981. (ATT)

Links Between Flood Frequency and Annual Water Balance Behaviors: A Basis for Similarity and Regionalization  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents the results of a data based comparative study of several hundred catchments across continental United States belonging to the MOPEX dataset, which systematically explored the connection between the flood frequency curve and measures of mean annual water balance. Two different measures of mean annual water balance are used: (i) a climatic aridity index, AI, which is a measure of the competition between water and energy availability at the annual scale; and, (ii) baseflow index, BFI, the ratio of slow runoff to total runoff also at the annual time scale, reflecting the role of geology, soils, topography and vegetation. The data analyses showed that the aridity index, AI, has a first order control on both the mean and Cv of annual maximum floods. While mean annual flood decreases with increasing aridity, Cv increases with increasing aridity. BFI appeared to be a second order control on the magnitude and shape of the flood frequency curve. Higher BFI, meaning more subsurface flow and less surface flow leads to a decrease of mean annual flood whereas lower BFI leads to accumulation of soil moisture and increased flood magnitudes that arise from many events acting together. The results presented in this paper provide innovative means to delineate homogeneous regions within which the flood frequency curves can be assumed to be functionally similar. At another level, understanding the connection between annual water balance and flood frequency will be another building block towards developing comprehensive understanding of catchment runoff behavior in a holistic way.

Risk equalisation and voluntary health insurance markets: The case of Ireland  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Ireland has a system of private health insurance (PHI) which acts as a voluntary alternative to the benefits provided under the Irish public health system. As part of this, community rating has long been a cornerstone of the Irish private health insurance market with the objective to make PHI affordable to everyone regardless of their risk profile. Until the mid-1990s one insurer had a legal monopoly. However, in 1996, following the Third Non-Life Insurance Directive, the market was opened up to competition and a number of regulations were introduced to support community rating. This includes the introduction of a risk equalisation system. Its aim was to prevent selection and thus protect the community rating system while still enabling a competitive health insurance market. There have been significant obstacles to the introduction of risk equalisation due to political, legal and implementation issues. The objective of this paper is to review the history, structure and likely effectiveness of risk equalisation in Ireland. The paper provides lessons for other countries with risk equalisation systems or seeking to introduce such a system. Amongst other conclusions, it outlines the difficulties in introducing risk equalisation.

Perceived community-based flood adaptation strategies under climate change in Nepal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Climate induced natural disasters and extreme events are escalating with the increased variability of climatic parameters due to climate change. This study assesses the flood adaptation strategies that are applicable at the community level in two Terai districts of Nepal. The data were collected through three focus group discussions and 210 household surveys. The study revealed that flood forecasting practices at community level included monitoring the extent of rainfall in upper catchments and identifying the position of clouds. 'Initiate communication', 'take care the affected people', and 'select the appropriate location to stay' were most preferred strategies during the flood. Similarly, 'exchanging helps with each other', 'preparing temporary settlement plan' and 'co-ordinating with government and other agencies' are most preferred post-flood adaptation strategies. Identification and assessment of locally-relevant flood adaptation strategies will help governments to choose adaptation strategies that are both effective and preferred by local people in vulnerable communities.

Visual representation of gender in flood coverage of Pakistani print media  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper studies gender representation in the visual coverage of the 2010 floods in Pakistan. The data were collected from flood visuals published in the most circulated mainstream English newspapers in Pakistan, Dawn and The News. This study analyses how gender has been framed in the flood visuals. It is argued that visual representation of gender reinforces the gender stereotypes and cultural norms of Pakistani society. The gender-oriented flood coverage in both newspapers frequently seemed to take a reductionist approach while confining the representation of women to gender, and gender-specific roles. Though the gender-sensitive coverage displayed has been typical, showing women as helpless victims of flood, it has aroused sentiments of sympathy among readers and donors, inspiring them to give immediate moral and material help to the affected people. This agenda set by media might be to exploit the politics of sympathy but it has the effect of endorsing gender stereotypes.

Geomorphological records of extreme floods and their relationship to decadal-scale climate change  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Extreme rainfall and flood events in steep upland catchments leave geomorphological traces of their occurrence in the form of boulder berms, debris cones, and alluvial fans. Constraining the age of these features is critical to understanding (i) landscape evolution in response to past, present, and future climate changes; and (ii) the magnitude–frequency of extreme, ungauged floods in small upland catchments. This research focuses on the Cambrian Mountains of Wales, UK, where lichenometric dating of geomorphological features and palaeohydrological reconstructions is combined with climatological data and documentary flood records. Our new data from Wales highlight a distinct flood-rich period between 1900 and 1960, similar to many other UK lichen-dated records. However, this study sheds new light on the underlying climatic controls on upland flooding in small catchments. Although floods can occur in any season, their timing is best explained by the Summer North Atlantic Oscillation (SNAO) and shifts between negative (wetter than average conditions with regular cyclonic flow and flooding) and positive phases (drier than average conditions with less frequent cyclonic flow and flooding), which vary from individual summers to decadal and multidecadal periods. Recent wet summer weather, flooding, and boulder-berm deposition in the UK (2007–2012) are related to a pronounced negative phase shift of the SNAO. There is also increasing evidence that recent summer weather extremes in the mid-latitudes may be related to Arctic amplification and rapid sea ice loss. If this is the case, continuing and future climate change is likely to mean that (i) unusual weather patterns become more frequent; and (ii) upland UK catchments will experience heightened flood risk and significant geomorphological changes.

The optimal boundary of political subsidies for agricultural insurance in welfare economic prospect  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

China is one of the most suffering countries in agriculture by Nature. The current statistics shows a growing lose by agriculture risk. Insurance, as a lack part in the agricultural risk management, is constraining the ability to defense the risk and the sustainable development for our modern agriculture. Either sufficient or deficient in political subsidies will cause welfare deadweight loss. The article analyzed the optimal boundary of the fiscal subsidies based on the welfare loss model in agricultural insurance. We’re trying to reduce the benefit loss due to asymmetric information, optimize the efficiency of fiscal transfers and enhance the farmers’ welfare. We also like to give several suggestions in how to promote our political subsidies in agricultural insurance.

On-board Decision Support System for Ship Flooding Emergency Response  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The paper describes a simulation system to support emergency planning decisions when ship flooding occurs. The events of grounding and collision are considered, where the risk of subsequent flooding of hull compartments is very high, and must be avoided or at least minimized. The system is based on a highly optimized algorithm that estimates, ahead in time, the progressive flooding of the compartments according to the current ship status and existing damages. Flooding times and stability parameters are measured, allowing for the crew to take the adequate measures, such as isolate or counter-flood compartments, before the flooding takes incontrollable proportions. The simulation is supported by a Virtual Environment in real-time, which provides all the functionalities to evaluate the seriousness and consequences of the situation, as well as to test, monitor and carry out emergency actions. Being a complex physical phenomena that occurs in an equally complex structure such as a ship, the real-time flooding simulation combined with the Virtual Environment requires large computational power to ensure the accuracy of the simulation results. Moreover, the distress normally experienced by the crew in such situations, and the urgent (and hopefully appropriate) required counter-measures, leave no room for inaccuracies or misinterpretations, caused by the lack of computational power, to become acceptable. For the events considered, the system is primarily used as a decision support tool to take urgent actions in order to avoid or at least minimize disastrous consequences such as oil spilling, sinking, or even loss of human lives.

Development of cost-effective surfactant flooding technology. Quarterly report, January 1, 1994--March 31, 1994  

SciTech Connect

The objective of this research is to develop cost-effective surfactant flooding technology by using surfactant simulation studies to evaluate and optimize alternative design strategies taking into account reservoir characteristics, process chemistry, and process design options such as horizontal wells. Task 1 is the development of an improved numerical method for our simulator that will enable us to solve a wider class of these difficult simulation problems accurately and affordably. Task 2 is the application of this simulator to the optimization of surfactant flooding to reduce its risk and cost. The goal of Task 2 is to understand and generalize the impact of both process and reservoir characteristics on the optimal design of surfactant flooding. We have studied the effect of process parameters such as salinity gradient, surfactant adsorption, surfactant concentration, surfactant slug size, pH, polymer concentration and well constraints on surfactant floods. In this report, we show three dimensional field scale simulation results to illustrate the impact of one important design parameter, the salinity gradient. Although the use of a salinity gradient to improve the efficiency and robustness of surfactant flooding has been studied and applied for many years, this is the first time that we have evaluated it using stochastic simulations rather than simulations using the traditional layered reservoir description. The surfactant flooding simulations were performed using The University of Texas chemical flooding simulator called UTCHEM.

An efficient flooding algorithm for improving network performance in optical WDM networks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In any networking environment, network and resource information has to be maintained periodically for re-routing the traffic. Especially in fault tolerant optical networks, after the faults are detected and recovered, the network topology changes have to be constantly configured for correct light path decisions to be made. In order to maintain correct routing tables and also to prevent blocking of forthcoming calls by the failed connection, the flooding messages have been broadcast to all nodes. When every node in the network floods the messages, problems arise of excessive redundancy of messages, resource contention and signal collision. This causes high protocol overhead and interference with the existing traffic in the networks. In this paper, lazy flooding algorithm is analysed and simulated by comparing the performance of all-flooding method and threshold flooding. Here, instead of flooding for each channel status update, such as to be changed from available to occupy or vice versa, we hold the process of update till it reaches certain points. The simulation results shows that the proposed flooding method achieves reduced blocking probability with increased throughput thereby increasing the scalability of the network.

Development of cost-effective surfactant flooding technology. Quarterly report, April 1995--June 1995

The objective of this research is to develop cost-effective surfactant flooding technology by using surfactant simulation studies to evaluate and optimize alternative design strategies taking into account reservoir characteristics, process chemistry, and process design options such as horizontal wells. Task 1 is the development of an improved numerical method for our simulator that will enable us to solve a wider class of these difficult simulation problems, accurately and affordably. Task 2 is the application of this simulator to the optimization of surfactant flooding to reduce its risk and cost. The objective of Task 2 is to investigate and evaluate, through a systematic simulation study, surfactant flooding processes that are cost-effective. We previously have reported on low tension polymer flooding as an alternative to classical surfactant/polymer flooding. In this reporting period, we have studied the potential of improving the efficiency of surfactant/polymer flooding by coinjecting an alkali agent such as sodium carbonate under realistic reservoir conditions and process behavior. The alkaline/surfactant/polymer (ASP) flood attempts to take advantage of high pH fluids to reduce the amount of surfactant needed by the chemical reactions between injection fluid and formation fluid or formation rocks.

Flood management on the lower Yellow River: hydrological and geomorphological perspectives  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Yellow River, known also as “China's Sorrow”, has a long history of channel changes and disastrous floods in its lower reaches. Past channel positions can be identified from historical documentary records and geomorphological and sedimentological evidence. Since 1947, government policy has been aimed at containing the floods within artificial levees and preventing the river from changing its course. Flood control is based on flood-retarding dams and off-stream retention basins as well as artificial levees lining the channel. The design flood for the system has a recurrence interval of only around 60 years and floods of this and larger magnitudes can be generated downstream of the main flood control dams at Sanmenxia and Xiaolangdi. Rapid sedimentation along the river causes problems for storage and has raised the bed of the river some 10 m above the surrounding floodplain. The present management strategy is probably not viable in the long term and to avoid a major disaster a new management approach is required. The most viable option would appear to be to breach the levees at predetermined points coupled with advanced warning and evacuation of the population thus put at risk.

Evaluation of target oil in 50 major reservoirs in the Texas Gulf Coast for enhanced oil recovery. [Steam injection, in-situ combustion, CO/sub 2/ flood, surfactant flood, and polymer flood  

SciTech Connect

This investigation determines the target oil available for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) from 50 major oil reservoirs in the Texas Gulf Coast. A preliminary screening process was used to determine which of five EOR methods, if any, were suitable for each of these reservoirs. Target oil in the 50 reservoirs is estimated to be 4.4 billion barrels of oil unrecoverable under present operating conditions, with about 1.5 billion barrels susceptible to EOR processes. None of the reservoirs have an outstanding potential for thermal recovery; however, seven reservoirs have carbon dioxide miscible flood potential, seven haven surfactant flood potential, and nine have polymer flood potential. None of the five methods was considered suitable for the remaining 27 reservoirs.

Abstract Polymer flooding has been widely used in petroleum industry. With the development of theory and technology, some problems in the existing models of polymer flooding appear during simulation. Based on the characteristics of polymer and offshore oilfield such as viscoelasticity, degradation effect and strong salt-sensitive effect, a novel model of viscoelastic polymer flooding is built, and the validation is verified. After comparing the distributions of effective viscosity and residual oil of taking account of elasticity and taking no account of elasticity, it is used to investigate the effects of injection rate, polymer molecular weight, salinity, degradation rate and well space.

Nevada Test Site probable maximum flood study, part of US Geological Survey flood potential and debris hazard study, Yucca Mountain Site for US Department of Energy, Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management  

SciTech Connect

The US Geological Survey (USGS), as part of the Yucca Mountain Project (YMP), is conducting studies at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. The purposes of these studies are to provide hydrologic and geologic information to evaluate the suitability of Yucca Mountain for development as a high-level nuclear waste repository, and to evaluate the ability of the mined geologic disposal system (MGDS) to isolate the waste in compliance with regulatory requirements. In particular, the project is designed to acquire information necessary for the Department of Energy (DOE) to demonstrate in its environmental impact statement (EIS) and license application whether the MGDS will meet the requirements of federal regulations 10 CFR Part 60, 10 CFR Part 960, and 40 CFR Part 191. Complete study plans for this part of the project were prepared by the USGS and approved by the DOE in August and September of 1990. The US Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) was selected by the USGS as a contractor to provide probable maximum flood (PMF) magnitudes and associated inundation maps for preliminary engineering design of the surface facilities at Yucca Mountain. These PMF peak flow estimates are necessary for successful waste repository design and construction. The PMF technique was chosen for two reasons: (1) this technique complies with ANSI requirements that PMF technology be used in the design of nuclear related facilities (ANSI/ANS, 1981), and (2) the PMF analysis has become a commonly used technology to predict a ``worst possible case`` flood scenario. For this PMF study, probable maximum precipitation (PMP) values were obtained for a local storm (thunderstorm) PMP event. These values were determined from the National Weather Services`s Hydrometeorological Report No. 49 (HMR 49).

Evaluation of flooding schemes for real-time video transmission in \\{VANETs\\}  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Long-distance real-time video flooding over Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) is challenging due to the dynamic nature of vehicular networks. Real-time video transmission has high requirements in terms of bandwidth and delay, while \\{VANETs\\} are characterized by very limited radio resources and high mobility. Our objective is to compare ten different flooding schemes specially designed for this task and select the best in terms of packet arrival ratio and Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR). Additionally, we propose Automatic Copies Distance Based (ACDB), an improved flooding scheme, to cope with variable vehicle density situations. Furthermore, to ensure a good behavior under all types of circumstances, we also study the impact of Global Positioning System (GPS) drift on these schemes. Simulation results show that long-distance real-time video flooding transmission is feasible under certain vehicle density conditions and the quality achieved is enough to allow using such solutions in future applications.

Improved efficiency of miscible CO{sub 2} floods and enhanced prospects for CO{sub 2} flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. Annual report, June 1, 1997--May 31, 1998  

SciTech Connect

The goal of this project is to improve the efficiency of miscible CO{sub 2} floods and enhance the prospects for flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. This report provides results of the first year of the three-year project that will be exploring three principle areas: (1) Fluid and matrix interactions (understanding the problems): interfacial tension (IFT), phase behavior, miscibility, capillary number, injectivity, wettability, and gravity drainage; (2) Conformance control/sweep efficiency (solving the problems): reduction of mobility using foam, diversion by selective mobility reduction (SMR) using foam, improved injectivity, alternating water and gas injection, and using horizontal wells; and (3) Reservoir simulation for improved oil recovery (predicting results): gravity drainage, SMR, CO{sub 2}-foam flooding, interfacial tension, injectivity profile, horizontal wells, and naturally fractured reservoirs. Studies of surfactant foam quality were performed during this first year. Simulation studies on a foam pilot area resulted in an acceptable history match model. The results confirm that the communication path between the foam injection well and a production well had a strong impact on the production performance. A laboratory study to aid in the development of a gravity drainage reservoir was undertaken on the Wellman Unit. Experiments were begun meant to duplicate situations of injectivity loss in WAG flooding and identify factors affecting the injectivity loss. The preliminary results indicate that for a given rock the injectivity loss depends on oil saturation in the core during WAG flooding. The injectivity loss is higher in cores with high in-situ oil saturations during WAG flooding. This effect is being verified by more experimental data.

Green River Formation Water Flood Demonstration Project. Annual report, April 1, 1994--March 31, 1995  

SciTech Connect

The successful water flood of the Green River Formation in the Monument Butte unit was analyzed in detail in the last yearly report. It was shown that primary recovery and the water flood in the unit were typical of oil production from an undersaturated oil reservoir close its bubble point. The reservoir performance of the smaller Travis unit was also analyzed. The Monument Butte unit is currently producing at around 300 barrels per day of oil. Two of the new wells drilled in the unit had zones pressurized by the water flood. The third well produced from pressurized as well as from zones which were unaffected by the water flood. The water flood response of the Travis unit is slow possibly due to problems of reservoir continuity. Plans for water flooding the Boundary unit were drawn. Core description and Formation Micro Imaging log of well 14a-28 provided insight about the important Lower Douglas Creek sandstone. It was determined that this sandstone was extensively fractured and detailed fracture characteristics were obtained through comprehensive interpretation of the FMI log. Reservoir modeling and simulation studies of all the three units were also continued. A larger, more detailed model of the Monument Butte unit was built in order to study the performance of the new development wells being drilled. Three alternate models developed to explain the performance of the Travis flood revealed that intersecting hydraulic fractures may have also provided paths for water channeling observed in this unit. The reservoir characterization activities identified new reservoirs in the Travis unit. Reservoir simulations helped design an injection program in Travis, unit expansion plans on the west and north sides of the Monument Butte until and to evaluate the infill drilling. The reservoir simulations are being used to examine the role of the aquifer underlying the oil bearing D2 sandstone in Boundary on water flood strategies and injection patterns.

Regional flood hydrology in a semi-arid catchment using a GLS regression model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary The regional flood frequency hydrology of the 86,000 km2 and semi-arid Ebro catchment is investigated using an extended generalised least square model that includes separate descriptions for sampling errors and model errors. The Ebro catchment is characterised by large hydro-climatic heterogeneities among sub-regions. However, differences in flood processes among sites are better explained by a set of new catchment descriptors introduced into hydrological regression models, such as new characteristics derived from the slope of flow duration curves, the ratio of mean annual precipitation to extreme precipitations and the aridity index. These additions enabled a more direct link to be established between the general flow regime and the extreme flood characteristics through-out the entire catchment. The new regression models developed in this study were compared to a set of existing models recommended for flood frequency estimation in Spain. It was found that the generalised least squares model developed in this study improves the existing ordinary least squares models both at regional and trans-regional scales. An adequate description of flood processes is obtained and, as a direct consequence, more reliable flood predictions in ungauged catchments are achieved.

Physically-based extreme flood frequency with stochastic storm transposition and paleoflood data on large watersheds  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary Traditionally, deterministic flood procedures such as the Probable Maximum Flood have been used for critical infrastructure design. Some Federal agencies now use hydrologic risk analysis to assess potential impacts of extreme events on existing structures such as large dams. Extreme flood hazard estimates and distributions are needed for these efforts, with very low annual exceedance probabilities ( ? 10 - 4 ) (return periods >10,000 years). An integrated data-modeling hydrologic hazard framework for physically-based extreme flood hazard estimation is presented. Key elements include: (1) a physically-based runoff model (TREX) coupled with a stochastic storm transposition technique; (2) hydrometeorological information from radar and an extreme storm catalog; and (3) streamflow and paleoflood data for independently testing and refining runoff model predictions at internal locations. This new approach requires full integration of collaborative work in hydrometeorology, flood hydrology and paleoflood hydrology. An application on the 12,000 km2 Arkansas River watershed in Colorado demonstrates that the size and location of extreme storms are critical factors in the analysis of basin-average rainfall frequency and flood peak distributions. Runoff model results are substantially improved by the availability and use of paleoflood nonexceedance data spanning the past 1000 years at critical watershed locations.

Implementation of the El Mar (Delaware) Unit CO2 flood  

SciTech Connect

Union Royalty, Inc., Amoco Production Company, and Enron Liquids Pipeline Company recently announced that they have commenced operations of an innovative enhanced oil recovery project at the El Mar (Delaware) Unit in Loving County, Texas, about 100 miles west of Midland, Texas. The project will convert the unit`s existing oil recovery system from a secondary (waterflood) system to a tertiary (CO2 flood) system designed to use carbon dioxide and water to increase crude oil production from the unit. What makes this EOR project unique is the creative deal structured by the partners involved. Amoco, Union Royalty, and Enron have worked out an unprecedented arrangement whereby Amoco essentially trades CO2 for an interest in Union Royalty`s future oil production from the unit. By pioneering this innovative deal new production life has been restored to a field that otherwise might dry up. Enron is participating in the project by transporting CO2 to the unit via a 40-mile expansion of its Central Basin Pipeline system from the Dollarhide oil field in Andrews county, Texas. The project will be implemented in four phases. The first phase in operation today comprises seven CO2 injection wells which have begun to process the reservoir with CO2. Plans now call for more CO2 injectors to be installed during the next three to five years until a total of 65 CO2 injectors and an on-site CO2 compression facility serve the unit`s 70 production wells.

Horizontal well improves oil recovery from polymer flood--  

SciTech Connect

Horizontal drilling associated with an injection scheme appears to be highly promising for obtaining additional oil recovery. Horizontal well CR 163H, in the Chateaurenard field is discussed. It demonstrated that a thin unconsolidated sand can be successfully drilled and cased. The productivity index (PI) of the well was much greater than vertical wells, and an unproduced oil bank was successfully intersected. On the negative side, it was necessary to pump low in a very deviated part of the well, and the drilling cost was high compared to an onshore vertical well. CR 163H was the fifth and probably most difficult horizontal well drilled by Elf Aquitaine. Located within a polymer-flood project, the target was a 7-m thick sand reservoir at a vertical depth of 590:0080 m. In this inverted seven-spot configuration with one injector in the center and six producers at a distance of 400 m, a polymer solution was injected from 1977 to 1983, followed by water injection.

Optimal control of diarrhea transmission in a flood evacuation zone  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Evacuation of residents and diarrhea disease outbreak in evacuation zone have become serious problem that frequently happened during flood periods. Limited clean water supply and infrastructure in evacuation zone contribute to a critical spread of diarrhea. Transmission of diarrhea disease can be reduced by controlling clean water supply and treating diarrhea patients properly. These treatments require significant amount of budget which may not be fulfilled in the fields. In his paper transmission of diarrhea disease in evacuation zone using SIRS model is presented as control optimum problem with clean water supply and rate of treated patients as input controls. Existence and stability of equilibrium points and sensitivity analysis are investigated analytically for constant input controls. Optimum clean water supply and rate of treatment are found using optimum control technique. Optimal results for transmission of diarrhea and the corresponding controls during the period of observation are simulated numerically. The optimum result shows that transmission of diarrhea disease can be controlled with proper combination of water supply and rate of treatment within allowable budget.

Financing of employer sponsored health insurance plans before and after health reform: What consumers don’t know won’t hurt them?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper studies the potential impact on consumers of regulatory arbitrage based on financing of employment-based health insurance plans in the United States. Consumers enrolled in self-insured health plans, for which employers are financially responsible for medical claims, make up a majority of Americans with employer-sponsored health coverage. Unlike their fully insured counterparts, self-insured plans are not subject to state health insurance regulation. They are also exempt from certain provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Employers who offer health plans can thus avoid certain insurance regulations and consumer protections by electing to self-insure. This research explores the impact of self-insurance on consumer welfare and how that is expected to change under the ACA. We describe the major consumer concerns regarding self-insurance – firm financial solvency, benefit generosity and stability, claims adjudication and recourse options – and present qualitative and quantitative evidence on their importance. We find a substantial degree of similarity between self-insured and fully insured plans with regard to benefit generosity and stability, at least with respect to available measures. In addition, we find no evidence that enrollees in self-insured plans face higher denial rates. While the ACA will not directly affect claims adjudication, it will improve recourse options for consumers with all plans and narrow the regulatory differences that existed between financing types. Policymakers must work to ensure the transparency of recourse options for enrollees in self and fully insured plans. In terms of financial solvency, while stop loss coverage is more common among smaller versus larger self-insured firms and such coverage typically commences at lower attachment points for smaller firms, roughly one-fourth of self-insured firms with fewer than 200 employees do not have such coverage. The ability of small firms without stop loss coverage to manage the risks associated with health care claims is uncertain, as are the consequences of health care expenditure-related risk for the overall financial solvency of the firm. Further, the financial security of firms who purchase stop loss coverage, and – by extension, the solvency of health plan benefits provided to employees – depends critically on the reliability of the stop loss insurer. State insurance commissioners may want to carefully consider the adequacy and appropriateness of their regulatory oversight of stop loss insurers in light of the potential move among smaller employers into the self-insured and stop loss marketplace.

Analysis of flash flood-triggering rainfall for a process-oriented hydrological model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We propose an extended study of recent flood-triggering storms and resulting hydrological responses for catchments in the Pyrenean foothills up to the Aude region. For hydrometeorological sciences, it appears relevant to characterize flash floods and the storm that triggered them over various temporal and spatial scales. There are very few studies of extreme storm-caused floods in the literature covering the Mediterranean and highlighting, for example, the quickness and seasonality of this natural phenomenon. The present analysis is based on statistics that clarify the dependence between the spatial and temporal distributions of rainfall at catchment scale, catchment morphology and runoff response. Given the specific space and time scales of rainfall cell development, we show that the combined use of radar and a rain gauge network appears pertinent. Rainfall depth and intensity are found to be lower for catchments in the Pyrenean foothills than for the nearby Corbières or Montagne Noire regions. We highlight various hydrological behaviours and show that an increase in initial soil saturation tends to foster quicker catchment flood response times, of around 3 to 10 h. The hydrometeorological data set characterized in this paper constitutes a wealth of information to constrain a physics-based distributed model for regionalization purposes in the case of flash floods. Moreover, the use of diagnostic indices for rainfall distribution over catchment drainage networks highlights a unimodal trend in spatial temporal storm distributions for the entire flood dataset. Finally, it appears that floods in mountainous Pyrenean catchments are generally triggered by rainfall near the catchment outlet, where the topography is lower.

Estimation of the effects of climate change on flood-triggered economic losses in Japan  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study evaluates the effects of climate change on economic losses due to flood-related damage in Japan. Three selected GCM climate data were downscaled using an analytical method that uses observed precipitation data as the reference resolution. The downscaled climate data were used to estimate extreme rainfall for different return periods. The extreme rainfall estimates were then entered into a two-dimensional (2D) non-uniform flow model to estimate flood inundation information. A technique based on the land use type of the flood area was employed to estimate economic losses due to flood damages. The results of the rainfall analysis show that at present (in 2000), the Nankai region, and the area from Wakayama Prefecture to Kagoshima Prefecture and the mountains of the Japan Alps receive very high extreme rainfall. By 2050, in addition to these areas, the rainfall in the Tokai and Koshinetsu regions will be 1.2 to 1.3 times greater than at present. The overall variations show that the potential economic loss is greater for the SRES-B1, A2 and A1B scenarios for all return periods. These results clearly show that flood-related economic losses in Japan will increase significantly in the future as a result of climate change. It indicates that Japan needs to increase the capital investment to implement flood control and mitigation measures in the future. As this study presents comprehensive results in very fine resolution (1 km×1 km), the outcome of this study is more important for regional scale decision making processes will be useful to the public, economists, and policy and decision makers in planning and designing flood control measures.

An expert system for detecting automobile insurance fraud using social network analysis  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The article proposes an expert system for detection, and subsequent investigation, of groups of collaborating automobile insurance fraudsters. The system is described and examined in great detail, several technical difficulties in detecting fraud are also considered, for it to be applicable in practice. Opposed to many other approaches, the system uses networks for representation of data. Networks are the most natural representation of such a relational domain, allowing formulation and analysis of complex relations between entities. Fraudulent entities are found by employing a novel assessment algorithm, \\textit{Iterative Assessment Algorithm} (\\textit{IAA}), also presented in the article. Besides intrinsic attributes of entities, the algorithm explores also the relations between entities. The prototype was evaluated and rigorously analyzed on real world data. Results show that automobile insurance fraud can be efficiently detected with the proposed system and that appropriate data representation is vital.

We find that adverse selection eliminates any market for a Medicare buy-in if it is offered as an unsubsidized option to individual private health insurance. The subsidy needed to bring the number of uninsured to less than 5 percent of the target population could be financed by an increase in the labor income tax rate of just 0.03–0.18 percent depending on how the program is implemented.

Optimal investment, consumption and proportional reinsurance for an insurer with option type payoff  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper is devoted to the study of optimization of investment, consumption and proportional reinsurance for an insurer with option type payoff at the terminal time under the criterion of exponential utility maximization. The surplus process of the insurer and the financial risky asset process are assumed to be diffusion processes driven by Brownian motions which are non-Markovian in general. Very general constraints are imposed on the investment and the proportional reinsurance processes. Based on the martingale optimization principle, we use BSDE and BMO martingale techniques to derive the optimal strategy and the optimal value function. Some interesting particular cases are studied in which the explicit expressions for the optimal strategy are given by using the Malliavin calculus.

Effects of the floods on dysentery in north central region of Henan Province, China from 2004 to 2009  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

SummaryObjectives Zhengzhou, Kaifeng and Xinxiang, the cities in the north central region of Henan Province, suffered from many times floods from 2004 to 2009. We focused on dysentery disease consequences of floods and examined the association between floods and the morbidity of dysentery, based on a longitudinal data. Methods A generalized additive mixed model was conducted to examine the relationship between the monthly morbidity of dysentery and floods from 2004 to 2009 in the study areas. The relative risks (RRs) of the floods risk on the morbidity of dysentery were estimated in each city and the whole region. Results The \\{RRs\\} on dysentery were 11.47 (95% CI: 8.67–15.33), 1.35 (95% CI: 1.23–3.90) and 2.75 (95% CI: 1.36–4.85) in Kaifeng, Xinxiang and Zhengzhou, respectively. The RR on dysentery in the whole region was 1.66 (95% CI: 1.52–1.82). Conclusions Our study confirms that flooding has significantly increased the risk of dysentery in the study areas. Additionally, we observed that a sudden and severe flooding can contribute more risk to the morbidity of dysentery than a persistent and moderate flooding. Our findings have significant implications for developing strategies to prevent and reduce health impact of floods.

The role of life insurance in an emerging economy: Human capital protection, assets allocation and social interaction  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this paper, we provide micro-econometric evidence on the determinants of life insurance demand in China, the largest emerging market in the world. We employ the China Household Income Project (CHIP) dataset for the year 2002 in the analysis. The timing is ideal, because of the nature of the less well developed capital markets and social security systems in China in 2002, which sets a suitable stage to study the insurance demand behavior of emerging markets. The results indicate that both the human capital protection motive and the asset allocation motive are important in explaining the purchase of life insurance in China. In addition, we present three empirical regularities: (1) the positive correlation between the returns to human capital and the returns to market portfolio decrease the demand for life insurance; (2) both the current wealth and future income of a household exert curvilinear impacts on life insurance demand; (3) the breadth of a households social connections has substantial impacts on life insurance demand.

Fire-flooding technologies in post-steam-injected heavy oil reservoirs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The mechanism and problems associated with development engineering of fire-flooding in post-steam-injected heavy oil reservoirs was studied using 1D & 3D physical simulation experiments and reservoir numerical simulation. The temperature of combustion zone decreased and high-temperature zone enlarged because there existed secondary water formed during steam injection, which could absorb and carry heat towards producers out of the combustion front during fire flooding, but high saturation of water in layers caused by secondary water had less influence on the quantity of fuel deposit and air consumption. In the process of 3D fire flooding experiment, air override was observed during the combustion front moving forward and resulted in a coke zone in the bottom of the layer, and the ultimate recovery factor reached 65% on fact that the remaining oil saturation within the coke zone was no more than 20%. The flooding model, well pattern, well spacing, and air injection rate were optimized according to the specific property and the existed well pattern in the post-steam-injected heavy oil reservoir, and the key techniques of ignition, lifting, and anticorrosion was also selected at the same time. The pilot of fire flooding in the H1 block in the Xinjiang Oilfield was carried out from 2009 based on these research works, and now begins to show better performance.

Potential of soil moisture observations in flood modelling: Estimating initial conditions and correcting rainfall  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Rainfall runoff (RR) models are fundamental tools for reducing flood hazards. Although several studies have highlighted the potential of soil moisture (SM) observations to improve flood modelling, much research has still to be done for fully exploiting the evident connection between SM and runoff. As a way of example, improving the quality of forcing data, i.e. rainfall observations, may have a great benefit in flood simulation. Such data are the main hydrological forcing of classical RR models but may suffer from poor quality and record interruption issues. This study explores the potential of using SM observations to improve rainfall observations and set a reliable initial wetness condition of the catchment for improving the capability in flood modelling. In particular, a RR model, which incorporates SM for its initialization, and an algorithm for rainfall estimation from SM observations are coupled using a simple integration method. The study carried out at the Valescure experimental catchment (France) demonstrates the high information content retained by SM for RR transformation, thus giving new possibilities for improving hydrological applications. Results show that an appropriate configuration of the two models allows obtaining improvement in flood simulation up to 15% in mean and 34% in median Nash Sutcliffe performances as well as a reduction of the median error in volume and on peak discharge of about 30% and 15%, respectively.

Emergency response: an investigation on a possibility of establishing valuable flood protecting infrastructures in Bangkok  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper aims to study the flooding event in Bangkok in 2011. Its objective is to seek for the possibility of creating the new flood preventing infrastructures, which may help reducing the flood impacts to the city in future crises, as well as to create a plan regarding to the creation of them in term of locations and sizes. The investigations on Bangkok's population and critical infrastructures suggested that the central area of Bangkok should be protected. As a result, the locations of the proposing infrastructures were selected accordingly and they are expecting to protect 76.02% of the population. Finally, it is concluded that this investment can be considered as worthwhile investment, in the case where there is a possibility that similar disaster may happen in the future, since the beneficial analysis showed that the value of preventable damages significantly exceeds the costs and expenses of the proposing infrastructures.

Improved efficiency of miscible CO{sub 2} floods and enhanced prospects for CO{sub 2} flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. Annual report, April 18, 1995--April 17, 1996  

SciTech Connect

The overall goal of this project is to improve the efficiency of miscible CO{sub 2} floods and enhance the prospects for flooding heterogeneous reservoirs. This objective is being accomplished by extending experimental and modeling research in three task areas: (1) foams for selective mobility control in heterogeneous reservoirs, (2) reduction of the amount of CO{sub 2} required in CO{sub 2} floods, and (3) low IFT processes and the possibility of CO{sub 2} flooding in fractured reservoirs. This report provides results of the second year of the three-year project for each of the three task areas. In the first task, we are investigating a desirable characteristic of CO{sub 2}-foam called Selective Mobility Reduction (SMR) that results in an improvement in displacement efficiency by reducing the effects of reservoir heterogeneity. Research on SMR of foam during the past year has focused on three subjects: (1) to verify SMR in different rock permeabilities that are in capillary contact; (2) to test additional surfactants for the SMR property; and (3) to develop a modeling approach to assess the oil recovery efficiency of SMR in CO{sub 2}-foam on a reservoir scale. The experimental results from the composite cores suggest that the rock heterogeneity has significant effect on two phase (CO{sub 2}/brine) flow behavior in porous media, and that foam can favorably control CO{sub 2} mobility. The numerical modeling results suggest that foam with SMR can substantially increase the sweep efficiency and therefore improve oil recovery.
