Task force report: science and technology; a report to the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice by Institute for Defense Analyses( Book )
16 editions published between 1967 and 1976 in English and held by 640 libraries worldwide
This report presents study results and recommendation intended to illustrate the potential contributions of science and technology to crime control. The report supplements and amplifies the discussion of science and technology in the general report of the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, entitled "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society." Two chapters address the application of technology in police apprehension of criminals. Topics considered are the use of technology to reduce police response time, means to modernize the command and control process, and how to relieve the radio frequency congestion in most large police departments. Another chapter discusses aspects of court management, corrections, and crime prevention. The court- management discussion focuses on delay reduction in case processing. Two aspects of corrections addressed are the use of programmed instruction as a rehabilitation aid, and the use of statistical techniques to aid in correctional decisionmaking. Auto ignition redesign and street lighting are discussed as technological means to reduce crime opportunities. A chapter examines the uses of systems analysis for the study of the entire criminal justice system as an integrated whole. One chapter considers the potential role of modern information technology in the development of an integrated criminal justice information system. The final chapter outlines a program of research and development by which the Federal Government can stimulate a major infusion of science and technology into the criminal justice process and counter the broader problems of crime control

Saddam's generals : perspectives of the Iran-Iraq War ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 392 libraries worldwide
Overview: This monograph represents a continuation of a series of research efforts designed to extend the knowledge of the contemporary Middle East, military history, and Iraqi military effectiveness during the course of three major wars: the Iran-Iraq War, the First Gulf War, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. This second volume is based on interviews with figures significant in the Iran-Iraq War, extensive examination and study of captured Iraqi records, and a review of secondary sources. The interviews presented here involve not only lengthy discussions with Lieutenant General Ra'ad Majid Rashid al-Hamdani, staff officer and battalion commander during the Iran-Iraq War, whom the Project 1946 research team had interviewed before, but similar types of discussions with a number of senior Iraqi military leaders who played key parts in the Iran-Iraq War. These were Major General Mizher Rashid al-Tarfa al-Ubaydi, a senior officer and section leader in Iraq's military intelligence service dealing with Iran during the conflict; Major General (ret) Aladdin Hussein Makki Khamas, corps chief of staff, division commander, and director of Iraq's Combat Development Directorate during the war; Lieutenant General Abid Mohammed al-Kabi, commander-in-chief of the Iraqi Navy from 1982 to 1988; and Major General 'Alwan Hassoun 'Alwan al-Abousi, a squadron and wing commander during the conflict. As a result of these interviews, the Project 1946 team deepened and extended its understanding of a number of aspects and incidents during the period. Among the insights gained were: 1) the growth of Iraqi intelligence capabilities during the war's course, 2) the growth of Saddam's perceptions on the nature of war and his broadening understanding of the naval and air wars, 3) the development of Iraqi military doctrine, 4) the lack of a clear strategic or operational vision among Iraq's leaders, military as well as civilian, at the beginning of the war, and 5) the difficulties the Iraqis confronted in incorporating technology and modern conceptions of war into military organizations that did not possess a high level of education"--Page 5-6
The long-term retention of knowledge and skills : a cognitive and instructional perspective by Marshall J Farr( Book )
6 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 316 libraries worldwide
This report reviews factors that influence how well knowledge and skills are retained over relatively long periods of nonuse. A cognitively oriented interpretation is applied to prior findings and beliefs about the nature of long-term retention. The report identifies instructional strategies (conditions of learning) which promote long-term retention and do not have an adverse impact on learning

Economic characteristics of the urban public transportation industry by U.S. Dept. of Transportation. Assistant Secretary For Policy and International Affairs( Book )
3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 160 libraries worldwide
In addition to presenting an overview of the economic conditions in the urban public transit industry as a whole, this project incorporated four papers that investigated separately the economic characteristics of the urban bus, rail rapid, commuter rail, and taxicab industries. Also included were three papers in which an econometric model of urban bus transit was developed, regulatory constraints and their implications were reviewed, and external effects of urban transit operations such as air and noise pollution and accident were analyzed. The analyses tended to be rather general, concluding that demand deficiency, especially for bus transit, was the main cause of the economic difficulties of urban transit systems
On the linkage of solar ultraviolet radiation to skin cancer by Pythagoras Cutchis( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
The linkage of solar ultraviolet radiation to skin cancer is investigated in this paper by making comparisons of incidence rates in countries with predominantly white populations with respect to geographic, time, age, and anatomic site variations. It is concluded that the evidence in support of the hypothesis that solar ultraviolet radiation is a dominant factor in the induction of squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas is convincing. Many anomalies of various kinds are found in the hypothesis that solar ultraviolet radiation is a significant factor in the induction of malignant melanoma, leading to the conclusion that the primary cause(s) for this class of tumors must be sought elsewhere. Analysis of the data indicates that urbanization is an important factor in the etiology of basal cell carcinoma and, to a lesser degree, in the etiology of malignant melanoma. The biological amplification factor (ratio of percent increase in non-melanoma skin cancer incidence to percent increase in ultraviolet dose) is estimated to lie between 1 and 2. (Author)
On the applicability of two- and one-dimensional parameterizations of atmospheric tracer transports to prognostic photochemical models of the stratosphere by Henry Hidalgo( Book )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the applicability of empirical parameterizations of stratospheric transports of chemically inert tracers to predictive or prognostic two- and one-dimensional photochemical models of the stratosphere and troposphere for the forecasting of anthropogenic effects on atmospheric ozone. The scope of this paper therefore includes: (1) a critical review and assessment of the prognostic utility of the parent Reed and German (1965) 2-D parameterization of stratospheric transports; (2) the implied assumption in representative subsidiary 2D parameterizations used or for use in 2-D photochemical models; (3) use of GCM/tracer model data for a chemically inert tracer for the assessment of the prognostic utility of both 2-D and 1-D parameterizations of stratospheric transports; and (4) the outlook for the development of prognostic parameterizations of stratospheric transports.

A study of stratosphere-to-troposphere transfer using radioactive tracer data in a one-dimensional parameterization by Ernst Bauer( Book )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
This paper reviews radioactive tracer data to determine effective stratosphere-to-troposphere transfer rates for a one-dimensional parameterization. The basic data used are the time-dependent global stratospheric burdens of Zr95 following six Chinese thermonuclear explosions 1967-1976, and also the falloff in burdens of Sr90 and excess C14 following the very large Soviet and U.S. test series of 1961-1962. Results of the Chinese explosions demonstrate that transfer of material from stratosphere to troposphere is fast in winter but slow in the summer of initial injection. It is best modeled by a seasonally varying eddy diffusivity profile, showing 'fast' transport (e.g., Dickinson-Chang, Danielsen) for a winter injection, and fast transport delayed to the next winter for a summer injection. Cloud rise height for the 1961-1962 tests is not well known, and so two models for the yield-altitude curve are used: a 'high' (Foley-Ruderman) and a 'low' (Seitz) model. The overall time variation in stratospheric burden of Sr90 and in stratospheric and tropospheric burdens of C14 can be simulated best by relatively fast falloff, i.e., by using a low injection height (Seitz) and fast transport (e.g., Dickinson-Chang). The difference in falloff rate of stratospheric burdens of Sr90 and of C14 is due principally to the recycling of C14 (as CO2) from the troposphere, with minor corrections due to sedimentation of the aerosols carrying Sr90 and the difference in effective injection height of these two tracers

Intra-airport transportation systems: an examination of technology and evaluation methodology by Institute for Defense Analyses( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide
The study examines the technology and analytic techniques available to provide assistance in arriving at solutions to intra-airport transportation problems. A number of proposed transportation systems are examined and their capabilities are compared to the future requirements of major U.S. airports. Technological deficiencies of proposed systems are identified, and possible major research, development, and demonstration programs are suggested. In addition, two typical airport transportation problems are identified, and simple analytical methods are developed for their solution. The applicability of both are analytical techniques and the available technology to other (non-airport) transportation problems is discussed. (Author)
