  • An empirically derived, functionally complete 3-valued logic is presented and discussed. This logic was derived from human decision making tasks and reflects decision making based on the weighing of evidence. The logic is used in ZAP, a telotaxic data analysis system. The logic is used to determine inter-relationships between data elements, contingent on the data's relationship to a goal.
  • This paper evaluates several empirical PVT correlations for application in the Gulf of Mexico. Ideally, fluid properties are determined experimentally in the laboratory; however, this data is not always available. Consequently, correlations are used to determine values for bubble-point pressure, solution gas-oil ratio, formation volume factor, and viscosity. These properties are necessary to compute oil reserves or for calculations involving flow through pipe or porous media. A review of the correlations is provided along with the results of calculations made on 31 individual crude oil samples.
  • Human health-based sediment quality criteria for Puget Sound are being developed by Washington State. Since fish consumption is recognized as the primary pathway of human exposure to contaminated sediments, an approach is needed to estimate bioaccumulation potential. Regulatory agencies, including EPA, have applied the equilibrium partitioning approach to develop human health-based sediment quality guidelines for non-polar, organic contaminants. The Washington State Department of Ecology has applied a different approach, relying instead on empirically-derived biota-sediment accumulation factors (BSAFS) from the national literature and regional sediment and fish tissue data, to develop human health-based sediment criteria. Holding other assumptions and inputs constant,more » the two approaches for estimating bioaccumulation potential yield highly disparate results for some chemicals of concern. The results are quite consistent for other compounds, especially those with very high bioconcentration factors such as DDT and PCBs.« less
  • Multispectral image analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data has been performed using an empirically-derived clustering algorithm. This algorithm groups image pixels into distinct classes which exhibit similar response in the T{sub 2} 1st and 2nd-echo, and T{sub 1} (with ad without gadolinium) MRI images. The grouping is performed in an n-dimensional mathematical space; the n-dimensional volumes bounding each class define each specific tissue type. The classification results are rendered again in real-space by colored-coding each grouped class of pixels (associated with differing tissue types). This classification method is especially well suited for class volumes with complex boundary shapes, andmore » is also expected to robustly detect abnormal tissue classes. The classification process is demonstrated using a three dimensional data set of MRI scans of a human brain tumor.« less
