  • The effect of various doses of x radiation and P/sup 32/ injections on the ribonucleic and desoxyribonucleic acids of the bone marrow and spleen was studied. The evolution of the absolute quantity was studied. The degradation for RNA for doses of 325, 500, 700, 1000, and 1500 r was 42, 55, 60, 65, and 72%, respectively, and 66, 70, 80, 85, and 91% for the same irradiation of DNA. Regeneration after sublethal doses occurs after the fourth day. Administration of 200, 300 or 400 mu c of P/sup 32/ produces on the fourth day in the marrow an average degradationmore » of 33, 51, and 62% for RNA and 46, 44, and 72% for DNA. The effect of 200 mu c is therefore of the same order as 325 r of whole-body irradiation, and that of 400 mu c is close to the sublethal dose of 700 r. In the case of the spleen, the effects of 400 mu c are in the vicinity of those of 500 r. (J.S.R.)« less
  • Soils from two geologically and geochemically different sites were evaluated for their potential to degrade chlorinated hydrocarbons. The chlorinated hydrocarbons included trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene, carbon tetrachloride and chloroform. Laboratory microcosm studies were used to determine the degradation rates under anaerobic conditions. Soils were distinguished on the basis of physical properties such as grain size and on chemical properties such as organic carbon content. There appeared to be little direct correlation between observed degradation rates and soil organic carbon content for soils containing less than 0.1% organic carbon. It was found that grain size distribution appeared to have some effect on degradationmore » rates observed in soils with low organic carbon content (<0.1%). Soils with much higher organic carbon concentrations were observed to mineralize the chlorinated hydrocarbons at rates four to five orders of magnitude greater than that found in the lower organic carbon soils. 7 refs., 2 figs.« less
  • Optical components for industrial excimer laser applications such as semiconductor lithography steppers have to withstand more than 10{sup 10} laser pulses without suffering from significant cumulative absorption increase due to color center formation. Lithography lasers are now approaching pulse durations of 10 ns and repetition rates of 1000 Hz, a domain unexplored in previous degradation studies. With the aid of an optical pulse-extension unit and a modified laser resonator, we measured absorptance and absorption changes in Suprasil 312 UV-grade fused silica calorimetrically at pulse lengths of 7 - 73 ns. At 100 mJ/cm{sup 2}, no degradation was detectable even aftermore » 500 000 pulses, but there was slight evidence of an absorption decrease due to laser cleaning. At 400 mJ/cm{sup 2}, both absorptance and degradation rate increased towards shorter pulses and hence higher intensities, but even over the full pulse-length range, the changes remained moderate. Furthermore, degradation at 300 Hz was lower than at 150 Hz, indicating that a simultaneous bleaching effect might be involved which favors future high-repetition rate applications.« less
  • Many currently available screening-level models for predicting long-term vapor-phase diffusive transport from soils and groundwater to ambient and indoor air neglect degradation mechanisms. In this paper, we summarize ranges of conditions which support aerobic biodegradation of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes in unsaturated soils, and examine existing experimental information on the range of possible biodegradation rate under these conditions. Mathematical solutions for incorporating degradation mechanisms into vadose-zone vapor transport models an presented for the purpose of consistent definition of degradation rate parameters. Results of previous experiment measurements, and published data on vadose zone BTEX degradation are tabulated as first-order ratemore » parameters and half-life values, with supporting information, including chemical concentration levels, soil characteristic, oxygen levels, and details on the particular experimental scenario. The tabulated first-order rate parameters are presented in a format consistent with the previously mentioned mathematical definitions. Results of this investigation, review, and compilation show that defining a degradation rate based on soil pore water concentration, and presuming that degradation is limited to the pore water phase of the soil matrix, may help explain some observed phenomena, such as reduced degradation for chemicals sorbed to soil, or which are partitioned into a residual hydrocarbon phase. In aerobic soil conditions over broad ranges in soil pore water concentrations, it appears that microbial degradation of BTEX is reasonably described by Monod-type kinetics. At soil pore waters concentrations below approximately 0.2 mg/L, first-order kinetics apply. At and below concentration level, based on available data, a conservative estimate (underpredicting degradation) of a first-order rate constant is 0.4 hr{sup -1}, based on soil pore water concentration.« less
  • As photovoltaic (PV) penetration of the power grid increases, it becomes vital to know how decreased power output may affect cost over time. In order to predict power delivery, the decline or degradation rates must be determined accurately. For non-spectrally corrected data several complete seasonal cycles (typically 3-5 years) are required to obtain reasonably accurate degradation rates. In a rapidly evolving industry such a time span is often unacceptable and the need exists to determine degradation rates accurately in a shorter period of time. Occurrence of outliers and data shifts are two examples of analytical problems leading to greater uncertaintymore » and therefore to longer observation times. In this paper we compare three methodologies of data analysis for robustness in the presence of outliers, data shifts and shorter measurement time periods.« less
