  • The Foothills Forest, located in west central Alberta, is one of ten model forests established under a Canadian federal government initiative to promote sustainable development and integrated management of Canada's forest resources. The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector, is being modified to allow its use of local forest inventory data, other information on local ecosystem carbon, and industrial use of fossil energy, to permit a comprehensive assessment of the current carbon budget of the Foothills Forest. The model estimates pools of carbon stored in the forest and in harvested products that have left the Weldwood mills sincemore » they began operations in 1957. In addition, it examines the net annual changes in these pools due to forest growth, ecosystem disturbances, harvesting and silvicultural treatments, and decomposition. The model also has the facility to assess biofuel consumption and to offset this against fossil fuel CO[sub 2] emissions from forest operations. With global climate warming over the next 50--100 years increasingly seen as a probability, there are additional fears that the carbon contained in mid-latitude forest ecosystems will begin to be released.« less
  • An approach to translate Smalltalk-80-programs into corresponding C-programs is described. We have designed and implemented a tool (S2C(LOS)C) in Smalltalk-80 that translates Smalltalk-80-code into CLOS-code. By using an existing compiler tool (Clicc) translating CLOS-code into C-code we can show a principal way how to generate corresponding C-code for Smalltalk-80-programs. In this paper the ideas behind the S2C(LOS)C-cool are described.
  • The Korean Peninsula is one of the world`s most tense military confrontational sites. Nearly 2 million North Korean, South Korean, and U.S. troops face each other along the 255-km long military demarcation line. Confidence building measures (CBMs), particularly military ones, that address the security needs of both countries could decrease the danger of conflict and help create an environment where a peace regime might be negotiated. In spite of the present high level of mutual distrust, steps can still be taken to prepare for future development and implementation of CBMs. This paper defines some simple and specific first steps towardmore » CBMs that might be useful on the Korean Peninsula.« less
  • After more than 20 years of carefully planned and reviewed scientific field work by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Geological Survey, and numerous other organizations, Secretary of Energy Abraham concluded in January that the Yucca Mountain site is suitable, within the meaning of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, for development as a permanent nuclear waste and spent fuel repository. In February, the Secretary recommended to the President that the site be developed for licensed disposal of these wastes, and the President transmitted this recommendation to Congress. This paper summarizes key technical and national interest considerations that provided themore » basis for the recommendation. It also discusses the program's near-term plans for repository development if Congress designates the site.« less
  • We describe the development of a novel silicon quantum bit (qubit) device architecture that involves using materials that are compatible with a Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) 0.35 mum complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) process intended to operate at 100 mK. We describe how the qubit structure can be integrated with CMOS electronics, which is believed to have advantages for critical functions like fast single electron electrometry for readout compared to current approaches using radio frequency techniques. Critical materials properties are reviewed and preliminary characterization of the SNL CMOS devices at 4.2 K is presented.
