A broad overview of energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities for Department of Defense installations( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Strategic Environmental Research and Developmental Program (SERDP)/Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is the Department of Defense's (DOD) environmental science and technology program focusing on issues related to environment and energy for the military services. The SERDP/ESTCP Office requested that the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) provide technical assistance with strategic planning by evaluating the potential for several types of renewable energy technologies at DOD installations. NREL was tasked to provide technical expertise and strategic advice for the feasibility of geothermal resources, waste-to-energy technology, photovoltaics (PV), wind, microgrids, and building system technologies on military installations. This technical report is the deliverable for these tasks

Improved native grasses and establishment methods for use on military training lands by A. J Palazzo( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project was to develop more wear-resistant plants and evaluate the relationships between military training and plant injury, regrowth, and wear-resistance. Through plant breeding, we were able to improve traits related to resiliency and establishment in introduced and native species of rangeland grasses. We selected for early spring growth, increased seedling vigor, improved tiller and rhizome development after disturbance, and resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses. Our improved plant materials will be ecologically compatible at the military sites because they were developed from collections of species native to or previously seeded at these sites. We made advances in relating molecular markers to plant characteristics and in using DNA fingerprinting techniques to characterize genetic diversity. We used markers to identify species and plants that can grow better at low temperatures. We now have the tools to assess the genetic differences and similarities in commercial and natural seed sources, enabling land managers to select seed sources that will ensure genetic compatibility with existing populations. Our tank traffic studies showed that naturalized, introduced species are more tolerant and recover more rapidly under repeated tracking than native plants. However, two improved native species, western wheatgrass and Snake River wheatgrass, showed promise as stabilization species because of their ability to colonize damaged areas. Our studies on what we call "ecological bridges" confirm that we can select seed mixtures that will establish more rapidly than all-native mixes and will ultimately lead to healthy and persistent stands of native plants. The species in the seed mixtures and the equipment needed are readily available, and the seeding can be done in one application, thus saving money. Our improved germplasm will make these seeding mixes even more desirable

Theoretical Studies of the Hydrostatic Compression of RDX, HMX, HNIW, and PETN Crystals by Dan C Sorescu( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A previously developed intermolecular potential for nitramines and several other classes of nitrocompound crystals has been used to investigate the behavior of the energetic materials hexhydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-s-trazine (RDX) 1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetraazacyclo-octane (HMX), 2,4,6,8,10,12-hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane (HNIW), and pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) under hydrostatic compression. Isothermal-isobaric molecular simulations (assuming the rigid-molecule approximation) molecular-packing calculations were used to perform the analyses. In the case of the RDX, HMX, and HNIW crystals, the results indicate that the proposed potential model is able to accurately reproduce the changes in the structural crystallographic parameters as functions of pressure for the entire range of pressures that has been investigated experimentally. In addition, the calculated bulk moduli of RDX and HMX were found to be in good agreement with the corresponding experimental results. In the case of the PETN crystal, the crystallographic parameters have been reproduced with an acceptable accuracy at pressures up to about 5 GPa. The larger deviations from the experimental results at greater pressures indicate the limitations of the rigid-molecule model when applied to floppy molecules. The similarity of the results determined in molecular-packing calculations relative to those from molecular dynamics simulations suggest that the former method can be used as an efficient tool for rapid tests of the crystal structure modification under pressure

Species profile, gopher frog (Rana capito spp.) on military installations in the southeastern United States by John G Palis( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gopher frog (Rana capito) is a rare frog of the Southeast. Currently, three subspecies are recognized; one is a candidate species for listing as threatened or endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the other two are former candidates now unofficially considered 'Species of Concern.' Gopher frogs inhabit xeric upland pine communities of the Southeastern Coastal Plain from the southern half of the North Carolina coastal plain to southern Florida and westward to eastern Louisiana. The principal habitat of the gopher frog is longleaf pine-turkey oak sandhill, but it also inhabits xeric to mesic longleaf pine flatwoods, sand pine scrub, and xeric oak hammock. Gopher frogs typically breed in circular or near circular, ephemeral to semipermanent graminoid-dominated wetlands found within these communities. The gopher frog has been documented on several military installations in the Southeast This document is one of a series of 'Species Profiles' being developed for threatened, endangered, and sensitive species inhabiting southeastern United States plant communities. The work is being conducted as part of the Department of Defense Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP). The report is designed to supplement information provided in plant community management reports for major United States plant communities found on military installations

Species profile, Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) on military installations in the Southeastern United States by Darrell E Evans( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Indiana Bat (Myotis sodalis) is a medium-sized bat with grayish chestnut fur on the dorsum. The species is found from the western edge of the Ozark Plateau in Oklahoma, North to Iowa and southwestern Wisconsin, East to New Hampshire, and south to portions of Georgia and Alabama. The Indiana bat was Listed as Federally Endangered in 1967 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, primarily due to disturbance and habitat destruction. Indiana bats migrate between wintering and summering areas. Winter hibernacula are located in cool limestone caves and abandoned mineshafts. During summer, Indiana bats require closed canopy, riparian forests for foraging and hardwood stands with open to partially closed canopies for roosting. The species has been documented on at least one military installation in the southeastern United States; installations with suitable habitat in other portions of the United States should also benefit from this document. This document is one of a series of Species Profiles being developed for threatened, endangered, and sensitive species inhabiting southeastern United States plant communities. The work is being conducted as part of the Department of Defense (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP). The report is designed to supplement information provided in plant community management reports for major United States plant communities found on military installations. Information provided on the Indiana bat includes status, life history and ecology, habitat requirements, impacts and causes of decline, habitat assessment techniques, inventory and monitoring, and management and protection
Fluidized-bed adsorption bioreactor for the treatment of groundwater contaminated with solvents at low concentration by Paul H Miyares( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a major source of water contamination in the U.S. They pose a threat to the environment and are a potential hazard to human health. Trichloroethylene (TCE) is the most common of these pollutants. TCE is usually remediated through pumping and treating it, using either air stripping or granular activated carbon. Bioremediation is an alternative treatment that uses microbes to convert hazardous substances into nonhazardous compounds. A fluidized bed adsorption bioreactor is examined here for the treatment of groundwater contaminated at low concentrations. This pilot study showed that the packed adsorbent bed could be loaded in approximately 36 hours at a flow rate of 120 mL/min. The remediation phase of the process took approximately 13 days. The reduction in the TCE concentration in the sorbent during each round indicated that it was being remediated by the microbiological process. Areas that need to be improved are the rate of remediation and the loading capacity of the adsorption beds. Currently, each complete cycle of loading and remediating requires 2 weeks while only mineralizing 58 mg of TCE per column
Investigations of explosives and their conjugated transformation products in biotreatment matrices by Philip G Thorne( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samples of soil that had been aerobically composted or anaerobically digested were extracted with solvent, then hydrolyzed with base and then acid. The concentrations of extractable TNT and its monoamino and diamino transformation products fell rapidly after the first days of treatment. Hydrolysis of the solvent-extracted residues released significant quantities of intact transformation products. The concentrations of RDX and HMX were reduced in a similar fashion without the appearance of significant quantities of transformation products. A generalized approach to biotreatment matrices analyses was developed. Spike-recovery studies indicated that analyses of bioremediation matrices should be considered as a qualitative descriptor of the progress of humification and the capacity to covalently conjugate transformation products rather than as a quantitative measure of the absolute amounts of various analytes present
Regional strategies for managing threatened and endangered species habitats : a concept plan and status report( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conservation and management of threatened and endangered species (TES) and their habitats are major concerns on Department of Defense (DoD) lands nationwide. Historically, most DoD efforts regarding TES have been conducted on a species-by-species basis on separate installations. However, there has been a recent policy shift within DoD toward ecosystem-based management methods that address multiple species rather than a single species. This report describes a plant community-based, multispecies approach to TES management as part of the DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program. This approach emphasizes (a) regional and community-based strategies, (b) methods that apply collectively to groups of species within a region, and (c) use of consistently reliable methods. The southeastern United States was selected for developing a prototype management plan because this region contains a large number of installations that have TES concerns. Plant community abstracts are being prepared for major plant communities occurring on southeastern installations. An example plant community abstract is provided that includes a description, impacts to the community, and detailed management information. To complement abstracts, 'Species Profiles' are being developed for selected animal TES occurring in these plant communities. A survey is also being conducted on potential impacts of military activities on plant communities. The prototype management plan will be used as a basis for developing additional management plans for other U.S. regions

Physiological response and habituation of endangered species to military training activities : SERDP 2006 annual report( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effects of transient human disturbance on avian species is a concern on Department of Defense installations that support populations of federally listed endangered birds. Military training often is conducted within habitats that support endangered bird species, thus exposing individuals of these species to harassment as defined under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973. During the 2006 breeding season on Fort Hood, Texas, evaluations of two major physiological response systems determined response in passerine species to disturbances characteristic of military training activities: a hormonal (adrenocortical) response to stress in white-eyed vireos and endangered black-capped vireos, and energy expenditure as measured by remotely monitored heart rate in white-eyed vireos. Heart-rate radio telemetry was used to measure avian metabolic demands in response to potential stressors related to military training. This study is the first to demonstrate that 1) heart-rate transmitters can successfully be mounted on small (10-g) migratory passerines, 2) heart rate can be continuously monitored and recorded in these birds for at least 60 hours, and 3) heart rate is a robust measure of energy expenditure in small passerines and therefore is a powerful method to test the effects of military activity on survival in species of concern
