1. Environmental Specimen Banks as a Resource for Mercury and Mercury Isotope Research in Marine Ecosystems
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 1/26/2014
Authors: Russell D Day, Paul R. (Paul) Becker, O.F.X Donard, Rebecca S Pugh, Stephen A Wise
Abstract: Environmental specimen banks (ESBs) have been a fundamental tool for many nations to monitor contaminant temporal and spatial trends, study fate and transport, and assess the severity and risks of pollution. The specimens archived in ESBs are among ...

2. Radio-microanalytical particle measurements method and application to Fukushima aerosols collected in Japan
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 8/26/2012
Authors: Cynthia J Zeissler, Lawrence Forsley, Richard Mark Lindstrom, Sean Newsome, Adrean Kirk, P.A. Mosier-Boss
Abstract: A nondestructive analytical method based on autoradiography and gamma spectrometry was developed to perform activity distribution analysis for particulate samples. This was applied to aerosols collected in Fukushima Japan, 40 km north of the Daiich ...

3. Determination of Moisture Content of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 10/17/2011
Authors: Rolf Louis Zeisler, Rabia Oflaz, Ralph E. Sturgeon, Rick L Paul, Brian E Lang, Jeffrey A Fagan, Joseph W Lam, Anthony Windust, P Grinberg, Benoit Simard, Christopher T. Kingston
Abstract: Several techniques were evaluated for the establishment of reliable water/moisture content of single-wall carbon nanotubes. Karl Fischer titration (KF) provides for a direct measure of the water content and was used for benchmarking against results ...

4. Comparison of Gas Velocity Measurements and CFD Predictions in the Exhaust Duct of a Stationary Source
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 7/13/2011
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Olatunde B. Sanni, Elizabeth F Moore, Robert P. Borthwick, Marco G Fernandez, Iosif I Shinder, Jiann C Yang, Aaron N Johnson
Abstract: Two series of independent flow measurements were conducted for cross validation of flow velocity in the exhaust duct of the NIST Large Fire Laboratory. In the first series, two pressure measurement probe types, an S probe and a 3-D probe, were used t ...

5. Microstructural Evolution of Pd-doped Nanoscale Zero-valent Iron (nZVI) Particles in Aqueous Media and Implications for Particle Reactivity
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 5/6/2010
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Weile Yan, Christopher J. Kiely, Wei-xian Zhang
Abstract: Palladized zero-valent iron nanoparticles have been frequently employed to achieve enhanced treatment of halogenated organic compounds. However no detailed study has been published on their structures, especially the distribution of palladium within ...

6. Ionizing Radiation-Induced Destruction of Benzene and Dienes in Aqueous Media
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 3/28/2006
Authors: M I Al-Sheikhly, Dianne L Poster, Jung-Chul An, Pedatsur Neta, Joseph Silverman, Robert Elliott Huie
Abstract: Pulse radiolysis with spectrophotometric and conductometric detection was utilized to study the formation and reactions of radicals from benzene and dienes in aqueous solutions. The benzene OH adduct, C6H6OH, reacts with O2 (k = 3 x 108 L mol-1 s-1) ...

7. Radiolytic Dechlorination of Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Transformer Oil and in Marine Sediment
Topic: Environmental Technologies
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: M Chaychian, C A Jones, Dianne L Poster, Joseph Silverman, Pedatsur Neta, Robert Elliott Huie, M I Al-Sheikhly
Abstract: Radiolytic dechlorination of PCBs in transformer oil and in marine sediments has been studied. At low PCB concentrations, complete degradation of the PCBs in transformer oil was achieved without degradation of the oil. Addition of an organic base, tr ...

8. Alaska Harbor Seal Phoca vitulina Contaminants: A Review with Annotated Bibliography
