This study evaluated the accuracy of the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) Battery to assist officers in making arrest decisions for DWI at blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) below 0.10 percent. NHTSA's SFST battery was validated at 0.10 percent BAC in 1981. The trend to reduce statutory DWI limits to 0.08 percent BAC prompted this research project.(More)

Anecdotal comparisons frequently are made between expeditions of the past and space missions of the future. Spacecraft are far more complex than sailing ships, but from a psychological perspective, the differences are few between confinement in a small wooden ship locked in the polar ice cap and confinement in a small high-technology ship hurtling through(More)
OBJECTIVE A field study was conducted to evaluate the accuracy of the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) battery to assist officers in making arrest decisions at blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) below 0.10%. BACKGROUND The SFST Battery was validated at 0.10% BAC in 1981, but since then many states have reduced statutory limits for driving while(More)
This article is part of a larger body of work entitled, "The Impact of Sex and Gender on Adaptation to Space." It was developed in response to a recommendation from the 2011 National Academy of Sciences Decadal Survey, "Recapturing a Future for Space Exploration: Life and Physical Sciences for a New Era," which emphasized the need to fully understand sex(More)

Previous studies of isolated and confined environments (ICEs) have been unable to assign relative priority to the many behavioral issues affecting participants. The current study analyzed psychologically relevant entries in the journals of nine leaders and physicians of French circumpolar expeditions. More than 100 specific themes emerged, distributed(More)
Small groups living and working in isolation and confinement experience unique stressors that have predictable effects on individual adjustment and performance. Because the stress is cumulative, long-duration missions impose considerable burdens on an individual's capacity to adjust to the conditions and to perform well, both technically and socially. This(More)
This study evaluated the accuracy of the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST} Battery to assist officers in making arrest decisions for DWI at blood alcohol concentrations (BAGs} below 0.10 percent. NHTSA's SFST battery was validated at 0.10 percent BAG in 1981. The trend to reduce statutory DWI limits to 0.08 percent BAG prompted this research project.(More)

Analogous experience is often instructive when attempting to understand human behavior in extreme environments. The current paper refers to the experiences of polar explorers and remote duty personnel to help identify the factors that influence individual and team performance when small groups are isolated and confined for long durations. The principal(More)
