  • This study asked, What are the psychological characteristics of Vietnam combat veterans who claim Agent Orange exposure when compared with combat-experienced cohorts who do not report such contamination The question was researched among 153 heroin addicts, polydrug abusers, and chronic alcoholics who were seeking treatment: 58 reported moderate to high defoliant exposure while in combat; 95 reported minimal to no exposure while in Vietnam. The null hypothesis was accepted for measures of childhood and present family social climate, premilitary backgrounds, reasons for seeking treatment, patterns and types of illicit drug and alcohol use, interpersonal problems, intellectual functioning, and short-term memory.more » The null hypothesis was rejected for personality differences, however, those who self-reported high Agent Orange exposure scored significantly higher on MMPI scales F, Hypochondriasis, Depression, Paranoia, Psychasthenia, Schizophrenia, Mania, and Social interoversion. The results suggest that clinicians carefully assess attributional processing of those who report traumatic experience.« less
  • This study investigates whether military records can be used to identify US Army Vietnam veterans who were likely to be exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange. Serum levels of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), a toxic contaminant in Agent Orange, were obtained for 646 ground combat troops who served in heavily sprayed areas of Vietnam and for 97 veterans who did not serve in Vietnam. The distributions of current TCDD levels in Vietnam and non-Vietnam veterans were nearly identical (mean in each group, approximately equal to 4 parts per trillion (ppt)). Only two men (both Vietnam veterans) had clearly elevated levels (greater thanmore » 20 ppt). Levels of TCDD did not tend to increase with greater likelihood of exposure to Agent Orange, as estimated from either military records or self-reported exposure. This study is consistent with other studies and suggests that most US Army ground troops who served in Vietnam were not heavily exposed to TCDD, except perhaps men whose jobs involved handling herbicides.« less
  • The Yatim Tagh and Khwaja Gogerdak structures are located 12 km and 17 km, respectively, to the east of Shibhargan. The structures are conspicuous surface anticlines with the Paleocene Bokhara Limestone exposed at the core, flanked by soft younger formations of clay and marl, of Eocene and Oligocene age. The Paleocene section consists dominantly of marls and clays which, with the Upper Cretaceous sediments, form an effective cap rock for reservoirs in the underlying Cretaceous section. The deeper reservoirs have high formation pressure, about 250 atm in the Hauterivian and more than 300 atm in the Jurassic section, but themore » shallow reservoirs in the Senonian section have pressures of only 37 to 40 atm. The reserves of gas in the Cretaceous section of the Khwaja Gogerdak gas field are estimated to be 48,470,300,000 cu m (1.711,001 MMcf), and in the Yatim Tagh field, 13,478,700,000 cu m (475,798 MMcf). Since 1963, however, due to an increase in the proved thickness and extent of reservoirs in the Hauterivian section, the total estimated reserve of the Cretaceous section is now increased to 63,000,000,000 cu m (2,400,000 MMcf).« less
