  • The dynamics of inhaled solvents have not been studied extensively for exposure conditions involving combinations of chemical agents. An ongoing laboratory study examining psychomotor performance effects on human volunteers exposed to spray paint agents offered an opportunity to gather data on the body burden profiles produced by the inhalation of two solvents alone and in combination. Breath and blood samples were collected from 70 male and female subjects who were randomly assigned to four treatment conditions: chemical placebo, 250 ppm acetone, 200 ppm methyl ethyl ketone, or 125 ppm acetone/100 ppm methyl ethyl ketone. The exposures lasted for four hours.more » No interaction between the two solvents affecting uptake or elimination was noted. There were no significant differences between the uptake and elimination in males and females. The results are discussed in relation to physiological simulation modeling of the exposure.« less
  • From decisions of the tax court, 52 T.C. 700, favorable to taxpayers, an appeal was taken. The Court of Appeals, Wright, Circuit Judge, held that taxpayers' reserves of geothermal steam constituted an exhaustible natural resource and that geothermal steam was a ''gas'' within meaning of Internal Revenue Code provisions for percentage depletion deduction for intangible costs of drilling and developing oil and gas wells.
  • The accuracy with which vertical profiles of aerosol extinction σ ep(λ) can be retrieved from ARM Climate Research Facility (ACRF) routine measurements was assessed using data from two airborne field campaigns, the ARM Aerosol Intensive Operation Period (AIOP, May 2003), and the Aerosol Lidar Validation Experiment (ALIVE, September 2005). This assessment pertains to the aerosol at its ambient concentration and thermodynamic state (i.e. σ ep(λ) either free of or corrected for sampling artifacts) and includes the following ACRF routine methods: Raman Lidar, Micro Pulse Lidar (MPL) and in-situ aerosol profiles (IAP) with a small aircraft. Profiles of aerosol optical depthmore » τp(λ), from which the profiles of σep(λ)are derived through vertical differentiation, were measured by the NASA Ames Airborne Tracking 14-channel Sunphotometer (AATS-14); these data were used as truth in this evaluation. The ACRF IAP σ ep(550 nm) were lower by 16% (during AIOP) and higher by 10% (during ALIVE) when compared to AATS-14. The ACRF MPL σ ep(523 nm) were higher by 24% (AIOP) and 19%-21% (ALIVE) compared to AATS-14 but the correlation improved significantly during ALIVE. In the AIOP a second MPL operated by NASA showed a smaller positive bias (13%) with respect to AATS-14. The ACRF Raman Lidar σ ep(355 nm) were higher by 54% (AIOP) and higher by 6% (ALIVE) compared to AATS-14. The large bias in AIOP stemmed from a gradual loss of the sensitivity of the Raman Lidar starting about the end of 2001 going unnoticed until after AIOP. A major refurbishment and upgrade of the instrument and improvements to a data-processing algorithm led to the significant improvement and very small bias in ALIVE. Finally we find that during ALIVE the Raman Lidar water vapor densities ρw are higher by 8% when compared to AATS-14, whereas comparisons between AATS-14 and in-situ measured ρw aboard two different aircraft showed small negative biases (0 to -3%).« less
