The odd quantum by Sam B Treiman( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a concise but comprehensive account of quantum mechanics written by a respected physicist for popular science readers. Sam Treiman makes quantum mechanics accessible to nonspecialists, combining mastery of the material with clear, elegant prose and infectious enthusiasm as he conveys the substance, methods, and profound oddities of the field."--Jacket

Neutrino Detection Primer( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is intended to provide for non-expert readers a survey of natural and man made neutrino sources and a critical review of various methods which have been proposed for their detection. Detection methods may be divided into two classes, those which have very modest performance and might actually work, and those which promise spectacular performance but violate the laws of physics. Emphasis in this report is on the second class of methods. The purpose is not to describe in detail what is possible, but to establish firm limits beyond which all schemes for detection capability are impossible. The last two sections of the report are for advanced students only and should be skipped by the non expert. They provide precise mathematical statements and proofs of the limits which the laws of physics impose upon neutrino cross sections. The limits are neither simple nor obvious. Consequently, it may be useful to have their technical justification here put on record
Subsurface Science( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Use of bacteria in subsurface remediation shows great promise. A number of technical problems the use of bacteria require further investigation. The physics and chemistry of the movement of bacteria in the heterogenous subsurface is poorly understood. A novel concept that needs further work is to use resident microorganisms and to transmit only the new genetic instructions from the surface. The United States Department of Energy (DOE) in 1985 established the Subsurface Science Program. The primary purpose of this program is to assist DOE's efforts to clean up wastes that have been disposed of underground and that have moved from surface sites into the underground. While the mining and petroleum companies have carried out extensive operations in the subsurface, the physics, chemistry, and particularly, the biology of the subsurface environment are largely unknown. In Section 2, we present our overall view of the program, its major goals, and outstanding issues. In general, this is a high-quality program, and deserves continuing and increasing support. The problem of understanding the subsurface environment in such a way as to make bioremediation a useful alternative is highly challenging. The subsurface environment is characterized by great natural physical and biological heterogeneity. This heterogeneity is discussed in Sections 2, 3, and 6. The complexity of natural heterogeneity is a theme running throughout the report. Methods to describe the heterogeneity in a useful way must be developed
Small satellites and RPAs in global-change research( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

JASON has now conducted two studies on the use of small satellites and remotely-piloted aircraft (RPAs) in global change research, with special reference to the DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program and to DARPA's Small Satellite program. The studies centered around meetings, one in January and the other in June, 1991, to which we invited representatives of all areas of the global change program and of the DOD satellite science and technology community. We have already issued a report on the January study. Here we summarize the main themes and results of our Summer Study; the full report will be issued shortly
Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program (ARM) -- Summer Review( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ARM is a highly focused program designed to improve our understanding of the transport of infrared and solar radiation through the atmosphere. The program pays particular attention to the interaction of radiation with the three phases of water. The goals of ARM are usually articulated in terms of improvements in climate models. We agree that ARM can indeed make significant contributions to the understanding of climate change. In addition we believe that the results of the program will have wide applicability to a broad range of problems, including more accurate short term and seasonal weather forecasting
