Title: Lattice QCD Thermodynamcis : P4 Action for new beta and MILC Nt=6

Abstract

These results are from the continuing Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics runs on BG/L. We show analyzed thermodynamics results for 6-10k trajectories ({beta} dependent), of the 32{sup 3}{chi}8 runs with the p4rhmc v2.0 QMP{_}MPI.X (semi-optimized p4 code using qmp over mpi). These jobs had a number of omitted trajectories, due to zero size and over-sized data files. For this interim report these errors were removed from the output to save space. The results also include the output of a new ''histogram.perl'' script, used to plot the gauge action < S{sub g} >= 10*(1- < plaq >)-(1- < rect >) for three values of {beta}=3.51, 3.54, 3.57. This output will be used to determine the new {beta} values that will be run to define the critical temperature. We also show a preliminary analysis on the first 5,000 trajectories of the 32{sup 3}{chi}6 runs for the milc code, using the new su3{_}rhmc{_}susc{_}eos.3g1f.qmp-bgl2 faster RHMC algorithm.

  • The South Valley/SJ-6 site is located on the southern margin of Albuquerque, New Mexico, just north of South Valley. Currently, petroleum fuels and various chlorinated organics are stored, handled, and used within the South Valley areas. Ground water contamination was first suspected in 1978 when foul tastes and odors were noted in ground water from a private well on the Edmunds property in South Valley. Subsequent sampling revealed the presence of several VOCs in three municipal wells including SJ-6. The remedial action addresses only the source and extent of ground water contamination in the vicinity of SJ-6. Principle threats atmore » the site (i.e., the source and emanating plumes of contamination from surrounding areas) are being addressed through remedial actions initiated by EPA in separate RODs. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including 1,1-DCE, PCE and TCE. The selected remedial action for the site is included.« less
  • This Best Management Practices (BMP) and Work Plan has been developed in order to maintain compliance with applicable regulatory requirements by documenting the practices that are required during the installation and maintenance of temporary weirs and flumes at the NT-3, NT-4, and NT-5 tributaries, subsequent collection of water discharge data, and removal of the weirs and flumes. The practices included in this BMP comply with the Clean Water Act and the intent of Sect. 70-8-104(b) of the Tennessee Code Annotated: Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission Proclamation 94-16 to prevent the destruction of the habitat of state-listed wildlife species that are designatedmore » as {open_quotes}in need of management.{close_quotes}« less
  • The former Air Force Plant 83/General Electric Operable Unit (PL-83) in Albuquerque, New Mexico is situated in an industrial area, but there are residences immediately north of the GE property. The contaminants which caused the listing of the South Valley site on the NPL consisted mainly of industrial solvents. The GE property is heavily built up, with the majority of the site paved or covered with buildings. Three areas of contamination have been identified at the site: four hazardous waste storage areas which were used for chemical storage, the north parking lot (a former dirt parking lot which was sprayedmore » with oil as a dust control measure), and the DWB-2 area which contains methylene chloride and freon contamination. In addition to soil contamination, ground-water contamination occurs at depths of up to 160 feet. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water and soil are VOCs including PCE, and metals. The selected remedial action for the site is given.« less
  • The Homestake Mining Company (HMC) site consists of a uranium-processing mill and two tailings embankments in Cibola County, New Mexico, about 6 miles north of Milan. The tailings embankments contain a combined total of 22 million tons of tailings material covering 225 acres. Four housing subdivisions are south and southwest of the mill with the nearest residence approximately 0.6 miles from the tailings embankments. In 1983 elevated levels of selenium were found in offsite ground water prompting EPA to require HMC, under a consent agreement, to supply municipal water to residents in the subdivision south of the mill. The restorationmore » program continued to operate and has been largely successful in onsite containment of tailings seepage. EPA has determined that the uranium mill and tailings embankments at the site are not contributing significantly to offsite subdivision radon contamination and that it does not have authority under CERCLA to address radon levels due to natural soil concentrations.« less
  • The United Nuclear Corporation (UNC) site is located approximately 17 miles northeast of Gallup, New Mexico in McKinley County. The site operated as a State-licensed uranium mill facility from June 1977 to May 1982. It includes an ore-processing mill (about 25 acres) and an unlined tailings pond area (about 100 acres). In July 1979, approximately 23 million gallons of tailings and pond water were released to a nearby river as a result of a dam breach in the tailings pond area. The site damage was repaired; however, attention was focused on ground-water contamination resulting from tailings seepage. Nevertheless, the offsitemore » migration of radionuclides and chemical constituents from uranium milling byproduct materials into the ground water, as well as to surface water and air, are still principal threats at the site. The remedial action will address onsite ground water contamination. Source control and onsite surface reclamation will be implemented under the direction of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and integrated with this ground water operable unit. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are metals including arsenic, and radioactive substances including radium-226/228 and gross alpha. The selected remedial action for the site is included.« less
