Setting the stage for international spent nuclear fuel storage facilities : international workshop proceedings by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2003, the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Academies organized an international workshop in Moscow on the scientific issues relevant to the establishment and operation of an international spent nuclear fuel storage facility in Russia. Given the broad international interest in this topic, the academies organized a second international workshop on important issues that were not on the agenda or were not adequately discussed at the first workshop. These issues included international monitoring at the facility, transportation requirements, liability and insurance concerns, and status of Russian legislation and regulations that are important in locating and operating a facility. Relevant experience from Europe, the United States, and Asia was also considered in this 2005 workshop. This book contains the papers presented at the 2005 workshop sessions, as well as proceedings from the 2003 workshop. Together they provide an overview of the issues, and useful background for those organizations and individuals involved in further development of an international spent nuclear fuel storage facility in Russia
U.S.-Iran engagement in science, engineering, and health (2000-2009) : opportunities, constraints, and impacts by Glenn E Schweitzer( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the first decade of the 21st century, the National Academies, working with a number of partner organizations in Iran, carried out a program of U.S.-Iran engagement in science, engineering, and health (herein referred to as science engagement). This book reviews important aspects of the science engagement program, including: (a) objectives of the program, (b) opportunities and constraints in developing the program, and (c) scientific and political impacts of the activities. Suggestions for future activities that draw on the conclusions and recommendations that have emerged from workshops and other types of interactions are set forth. Of course, the political turmoil within Iran and uncertainties as to the direction of U.S.-Iran government-to-government relations will undoubtedly complicate initiation and implementation of new science engagement activities in the near term. At the same time, many American and Iranian participants and important government officials in the United States and Iran have believed that science engagement can contribute to the evolution of an improved political environment for development of less adversarial relations between the two governments."--

Science as a gateway to understanding : international workshop proceedings, Tehran, Iran by National Research Council (U. S.)( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 2007, the U.S. National Academies and the Iranian Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science organized the first of a series of planned U.S.-Iranian workshops on the topic "Science as a Gateway to Understanding." This new workshop series is a component of the broader effort of the National Academies to support bilateral workshops and exchange visits in a variety of fields with a number of Iranian institutions that began in 2000. This book includes papers that were presented at the workshop and summaries of the discussions that followed some of the presentations. At the conclusion of the workshop there was general agreement that the presentations on many aspects of science and scientific cooperation that have a bearing on mutual understanding were an important first step. Several participants underscored that the next workshop should emphasize how scientific cooperation can lead in concrete terms to improved understanding among both academic and political leaders from the two countries
Innovating for profit in Russia : summary of a workshop( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Research Council hosted an interacademy workshop in Yekaterinburg, Russia together with the Russian Academy of Sciences in October 2004 as a means of exploring various aspects of industrial innovation in the Urals region of Russia. Workshop presenters focused on the establishment of cooperative business partnerships between Russian industrial companies and Russian research organizations, particularly those in the closed nuclear cities of Russia. The concept of & ldquo;market pull & rdquo; was therefore an important aspect of the workshop, including partnerships between Russian researchers and international companies, as well as those with international research centers. However, given the complex economic and research climates in Russia, which are intensified in the nuclear cities, cooperation between Russian industry and Russian researchers were of primary during the workshop presentations and subsequent discussions as captured in this workshop summary
Russian views on countering terrorism during eight years of dialogue : extracts from proceedings of four U.S.-Russian workshops by GLENN SCHWEITZER( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few countries have endured as many attacks of terrorism during the past two decades as has Russia. From bombings on the streets of a number of cities, to the disruption of pipelines in Dagestan, to the taking of hundreds of hostages at a cultural center i
Cleaning up sites contaminated with radioactive materials : international workshop proceedings by GLENN E SCHWEITZER( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines national security controls that oversee scientific and technological research, specifically the federal regulations governing which information or goods can be shared with citizens of other countries. These restrictions are designed to prevent the flow of information or technology out of the U.S. and into the hands of foreign competitors or those who may wish to use it for harm. The book looks at how the world has changed since these national security controls were enacted, identifies the effects they have had on scientific and technological research in the U.S., and makes recommendations on how the system should be restructured to strengthen both national security and economic competitiveness
Containing Russia's nuclear firebirds : harmony and change at the International Science and Technology Center by Glenn E Schweitzer( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the aftermath of the Soviet Union's breakup into fifteen independent states, the governments of the United States, the European Community, Japan, and Russia established the International Science and Technology Center in Moscow to address the dangers of nuclear scientists "on the loose." The purpose of the ISTC (also known as the Moscow Science Center) was to prevent the illicit flow of dangerous weapons expertise out of the former Soviet Union by helping its underemployed nuclear, biological, chemical, and aerospace weapons scientists redirect their skills to peaceful civilian endeavors. Since its creation in 1994, the ISTC has provided more than $1.3 billion to support 2,740 projects involving nearly 100,000 scientists from the former Soviet Union and international partners. Thirty-nine governments have become part of the ISTC family. Somewhat unexpectedly, in April 2010, the Russian government announced that it would withdraw from the agreement establishing the ISTC, contending that the Center had accomplished its mission. The Moscow Science Center will close its doors in 2015, effectively terminating ISTC activities based in Russia. Schweitzer examines the impact and effectiveness of the ISTC and emphasizes opportunites for the internal community to draw on its legacy"--

An international spent nuclear fuel storage facility : exploring a Russian site as a prototype : proceedings of an international workshop by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of a long-standing collaboration on nuclear nonproliferation, the National Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Sciences held a joint workshop in Moscow in 2003 on the scientific aspects of an international radioactive disposal site in Russia. The passage of Russian laws permitting the importation and storage of high-level radioactive material (primarily spent nuclear fuel from reactors) has engendered interest from a number of foreign governments, including the U.S., in exploring the possibility of transferring material to Russia on a temporary or permanent basis. The workshop focused on the environmental aspects of the general location and characteristics of a possible storage site, transportation to and within the site, containers for transportation and storage, inventory and accountability, audits and inspections, and handling technologies
Borrowed earth, borrowed time : healing America's chemical wounds by Glenn E Schweitzer( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews efforts to control hazardous chemicals from the early 1970s into the very beginning of the 1990s. Many of the issues which were hotly debated 15 years earlier are still on the national agenda and are surrounded with more controversy than ever before. The emphasis is on environmental goals and on general policies and approaches in search of these goals. At the same time, environmental issues teem with controversy over details-in the fine print of the laws, in the Federal Register announcements of new regulations, in enforcement orders, and in court rulings. In the environmental field the gaps are enormous between the politicians, the experts, and the public in understanding the facts, in recognizing the uncertainties, in developing a basis for reaching decisions laden with value judgments, and in translating these judgments into implementation activities. However, the goals must be clear even to identify the important facts and uncertainties themselves and to frame the judgments which must be made. If a consensus cannot be reached on the appropriate goals and objectives, then the nation is in serious trouble. The importance of such a consensus is underscored by one industrial estimate that each American family already pays $150 per month in direct and hidden environmental costs, expenditures which we can ill-afford to misdirect
Superterrorism : assassins, mobsters, and weapons of mass destruction by Glenn E Schweitzer( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glenn Schweitzer sounds an alarm alerting us to the barrage of new terrorist threats targeted at Americans in the form of biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons. Superterrorism - heinous and violent acts aimed at causing massive death and destruction - poses the greatest threat to life as we know it. Schweitzer spotlights for the first time the volatile mix created when religious and other zealots join forces with mobsters, drawing on billions of dollars of laundered drug money to bankroll terrorist attacks. He warns that the tried-and-true routes for smuggling drugs and arms may become highways for contraband nuclear, chemical, and biological materials that could lead to the kind of holocaust that Americans have never known. Are we prepared for a chemical, biological, or nuclear attack? Schweitzer provides a shocking answer, but also suggests steps to prevent the worst from happening
