Technological risk versus natural catastrophe by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The risk of death from unavoidable natural catastrophes is compared with risk of death incurred by the electrical industry (including risk from nuclear power). The unavoidable natural catastrophes considered are death from meteor falls, from climatic deterioration caused by changes in amount of sunlight reaching the earth, and from supernovas. Such comparisons may help government agencies balance public risks against public benefits in planning for new technologies. (Author)
Mechanism for blow-off of the earth's atmosphere : population of the Van Allen Belt by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rate of loss of terrestrial atmosphere from earthquake motions is estimated. Some of this atmosphere ionizes as it is blown off through the magnetosphere, and the amount so ionized seems to be abundantly ample to account for C, N, and O found in the Van Allen Belt. (Author)
Carbon dioxide and climate : dedicated to Willard F. Libby and Hans E. Süss( Book )

5 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creation of an atmosphere for the moon by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes a method of creating a lunar atmosphere. If the lunar crust were deliberately and methodically broken, simulating earthquake and volcanic activity on the planets, some of the stored gases and vapors could be released and would form a lunar atmosphere
Age of cosmic rays and abundance of antimatter in our Galaxy by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acceptance of a disc-halo structure for the Galaxy together with cosmic ray evidence leads to the conclusion that cosmic rays are very old, older than 100 million years, and to the conclusion that the abundance of antimatter in the entire Galaxy is less than 0.0003. (Author)
Repulsive core and interaction energy in proton-proton scattering by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interaction energy between two protons is computed from high energy elastic cross sections at 60 degrees and 90 degrees, using an optical model. The repulsive core becomes important for separation less than approximately 0.3 Fermi. Exponential dependence of high energy cross sections is shown to predict repulsive forces at small separation.

Solar energy without neutrinos : fusion catalysis by quarks by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measurement of ocean waves in a satellite photograph by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apollo 6 photographs of the surface of the ocean, made within two hours of noon solar time are found to show wave structure of the sea with remarkable clarity. The wave length distribution has been measured from about 1000 waves in a single photograph of about 10,000 sq mi area. With better photographic definition wave height could probably also be measured from deformation of edges of cloud shadows. Using this method it would be possible to measure wave length and wave height distributions daily of all oceans, with a polar orbiting satellite carrying a television camera. (Author)
Importance of observation that stars don't twinkle outside the earth's atmosphere by W Cunningham( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New method to limit abundance of cosmic ray quarks by Leona Marshall Libby( Book )

Variable galactic X-ray sources in hydromagnetic waves by Rand Corporation( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galactic X-ray sources of fluctuating intensity are explained as being small regions of enhanced gas density temperature emitting thermal Coulomb bremsstrahlung of keV energies. Hydromagnetic wave motions of the magnetic fields in the galactic spiral arms produced the enhanced regions by compressing the ionized gas clouds to which they are tied by their high electrical conductivity. From the observed periods of fluctuation of a few months together with the hydromagnetic velocity the average source size is estimated at greater than or equal to 10 to the 16th power cm. By using the formula for Coulomb bremsstrahlung and requiring that the sources shall produce the observed X-ray fluxes a second estimate of source size is found to be in agreement at approximately 10 to the 16th power cm. Such regions are too small to be observable radio sources with presently existing radio telescopes. (Author)
