Reducing climate impacts in the transportation sector by James Spencer Cannon( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 250 experts from around the world gathered at the Asilomar Transportation and Energy Conference in August 2007 to tackle what many agree is the greatest environmental challenge the world faces: climate change. This 11th Biennial Conference, organized under the auspices of the Energy and Alternative Fuels Committees of the U.S. Transportation Research Board, examined key climate change policy issues and strategies to combat climate impacts from the transportation sector, a leading source of greenhouse gas emissions. This book includes chapters by leading presenters at the Asilomar Con
Effectiveness and impact of corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards by Committee on the Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy CAFE Standards Staff National Research Council( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academy Press, based in Washington, D.C., presents the full text of a book entitled "Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards," authored by the Transportation Research Board and originally published in 2001. The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) program requires automobile manufacturers to increase the sales-weighted average fuel economy of the passenger car and light-duty truck fleets sold in the United States. The book highlights technologies for improving the fuel economy, the impact of a more fuel efficient fleet, and potential modifications and alternatives to CAFE
Review of the research program of the FreedomCar and fuel partnership( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making its published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional standards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. This is a broad, very challenging research effort to assist in the development of high-risk technologies that will enable the vision of a clean and sustainable transportation energy future
Managing carbon monoxide pollution in meteorological and topographical problem areas( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The regulation of carbon monoxide has been one of the great success stories in air pollution control. While more than 90 percent of the locations with carbon monoxide monitors were in violation in 1971, today the number of monitors showing violations has fallen to only a few, on a small number of days and mainly in areas with unique meteorological and topographical conditions
Spills of emulsified fuels : risks and response( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spills of Emulsified Fuels: Risks and Response is part of an evolving body of work conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) to help inform debate and decision-making regarding the ecological consequences of releases associated with the widespread use of fossil fuels. Like earlier NRC reports, it attempts to understand the chemical, physical, and biological behavior of a complex mix of compounds that make up various petroleum hydrocarbon-based fuels. The specific risk factors presented by emulsified fuels are difficult to characterize, mainly because there have been no spills of emulsified fuels to date, and thus there is little practical experience with these products
Inland navigation system planning : the upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

Terrorism and the chemical infrastructure : protecting people and reducing vulnerabilities( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chemical sector is a key part of the national economy and has been designated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as one of 17 sectors comprising the nation's Critical Infrastructure. Although its products represent only 2 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product, those products underpin most other manufactured goods. To assist DHS in characterizing and mitigating the vulnerabilities faced by the nation from the chemical industry, this study examines classes of chemicals and chemical processes that are critical to the nation's security, economy, and health. It identifies vulnerabilities and points of weakness in the supply chain for these chemicals and chemical processes; assesses the likely impact of a significant disruption in the supply chain; identifies actions to help prevent disruption in the supply chain and mitigate loss and injury should such disruption occur; identifies incentives and disincentives to preventative and mitigating actions; and recommends areas of scientific, engineering, and economic research and development. The report concludes that the consequences of a deliberate attack on the chemical infrastructure would be expected to be similar in nature to the accidents we have already experienced. Under limited circumstances, such an attack could cause catastrophic casualties and loss of life, but it would take several simultaneous events to cause catastrophic economic consequences. Poor communication could amplify societal response. Overall, the recommendations in this report emphasize the benefit of investments to improve emergency preparedness for and response to chemical events. They also highlight the potential to minimize the physical hazards through development of cost-effective, safer processes that reduce the volume, toxicity, or hazardous conditions under which chemicals are processed
Advancing aeronautical safety : a review of NASA's aviation safety-related research programs by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advancing the state of aviation safety is a central mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Congress requested this review of NASA's aviation safety-related research programs, seeking an assessment of whether the programs have well-defined, prioritized, and appropriate research objectives; whether resources have been allocated appropriately among these objectives; whether the programs are well coordinated with the safety research programs of the Federal Aviation Administration; and whether suitable mechanisms are in place for transitioning the research results into operational technologies and procedures and certification activities in a timely manner. Advancing Aeronautical Safety contains findings and recommendations with respect to each of the main aspects of the review sought by Congress. These findings indicate that NASA's aeronautics research enterprise has made, and continues to make, valuable contributions to aviation system safety but it is falling short and needs improvement in some key respects."--Publisher's description

Issues in commuting and pilot fatigue : interim report by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The potential for fatigue to negatively affect human performance is well established. Concern about this potential in the aviation context extends back decades, with both airlines and pilots agreeing that fatigue is a safety concern. A more recent consideration is whether and how pilot commuting, conducted in a pilot's off-duty time, may affect fatigue. The National Academy of Sciences was asked to review available information related to the prevalence and characteristics of pilot commuting; sleep, fatigue, and circadian rhythms; airline and regulatory oversight policies; and pilot and airline practices. This interim report summarizes the committee's review to date of the available information. The final report will present a final review, along with the committee's conclusions and recommendations based on the information available during its deliberations
