The DIAS-ESTEC Ultra Heavy Cosmic Ray Experiment (UHCRE) on the Long Duration Exposure Facility, collected approximately 3000 cosmic ray nuclei with Z > 65 in the energy region E > 1.5 GeV nucleon-1 during a six year exposure in Earth orbit. The entire accessible collecting area of the solid state nuclear track detector (SSNTD) array has been scanned for… (More)
We have examined the extent to which the systemic and renal vasoconstriction induced by nitric oxide (NO) inhibition in vivo are mediated by endothelin (ET). We examined'the effects of BQ610, a specific ET-A receptor antagonist, following NO inhibition with L-NAME in the anesthetized rat. Mean arterial pressure (MAP) increased following L-NAME infusion from… (More)
The USACE Honolulu District is conducting market research to evaluate the interest and capability of all types of small business contractors for providing services under an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity service contract for munitions and explosives of concern response actions in the Honolulu District area of responsibility. The NAICS code is… (More)
We describe several new measurement and analysis techniques used to determine the polarization of the 3He target in a recently completed measurement of the neutron spin structure function g; at SLAC (E-154). The polarization was determined using two independent methods. The first method used a standard technique of Adiabatic Fast Passage, calibrated by a… (More)
The systemic and renal hemodynamic responses to NO inhibition with L-NAME were compared in both normotensive, normovolemic rats and in rats following acute hemorrhagic hypotension. Mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) increased in normovolemic as well as in hemorrhaged, hypotensive rats. Systemic vascular resistance (SVR) also increased in both groups but the… (More)
Abstrat: Many of the problems that have cumntly beset the c0”crcial egg layer indushy have arisen becaw of methods of handing the manure output !+om large flocks. Alternative techniques for handling of animal manure within animal production facilities will need to be developed to sat& current and future zoning and environmental criteria placed on these… (More)
Data extraction and analysis of the LDEF Ultra Heavy Cosmic Ray Experiment is continuing. Almost twice the pre LDEF world sample has been investigated and some details of the charge spectrum in the region from Z _ 70 up to and including the actinides are presented. The early results indicate r process enhancement over solar system source abundances.
The ultra heavy cosmic ray experiment (UHCRE) on the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) collected approximately 3000 cosmic ray nuclei with Z > 65 in the energy region E > 1.5 GeV/n. Almost 40% of the sample has been analysed to date. Details of the overall charge abundance pattern is outlined with estimates of the actinide abundance.
