6 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Space Studies Board (SSB) was established in 1958 to serve as the focus of the interests and responsibilities in space research for the National Academies. The SSB provides an independent, authoritative forum for information and advice on all aspects of space science and applications, and it serves as the focal point within the National Academies for activities on space research. It oversees advisory studies and program assessments, facilitates international research coordination, and promotes communications on space science and science policy between the research community, the federal government, and the interested public. The SSB also serves as the U.S. National Committee for the International Council for Science Committee on Space Research (COSPAR). This volume reviews the organization, activities, and reports of the SSB for the year 2010

Evaluating military advertising and recruiting : theory and methodology by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an evaluation framework that links different types of research questions to different research methodologies. The framework identifies four major categories of research questions and four broad methodological approaches. The first category of research question asks: [beta]What does a target audience see as attractive or unattractive features of a program?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via qualitative methods, such as focus groups; unstructured or open-ended surveys; and interviews. The second category of research question asks: [beta]What is the effect of a program on specified attitudes or behavioral intentions?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via surveys, experiments, and quasi-experiments. The third category of research question asks [beta]What is the effect of a proposed new program on enlistment?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via experiments and quasi-experiments. The final category of research question asks [beta]What is the effect of an existing program on enlistment?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via econometric modeling

Future needs in deep submergence science : occupied and unoccupied vehicles in basic ocean research by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deep-diving manned submersibles, such as Alvin, which gained worldwide fame when researchers used it to reach the wreck of the Titanic, have helped advance deep-ocean science. But many scholars in this field have noted that the number and capabilities of today's underwater vehicles no longer meet current scientific demands. At the same time, the relative value of manned and unmanned vehicles is often disputed. The report finds that new submersibles -- both manned and unmanned -- that are more capable than those in the current fleet are needed and would be of great value to the advancement of ocean research
Progress in improving project management at the Department of Energy : 2003 assessment by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1997, Congress, in the conference report, H.R. 105-271, to the FY1998 Energy and Water Development Appropriation Bill, directed the NRC to carry out a series of assessments of project management at the Department of Energy (DOE). This report, the 2003 Assessment, is the final one in that series. It presents an examination of DOE's progress in improving program management over the past three years including the Department's response to the recommendations of the previous assessments in this series. In addition to assessing DOE's progress, the report also describes opportunities for further improvement and gives a prognosis for future developments

The report also identifies important contributions that have been made by the chemical sciences toward solving environmental problems, and emphasizes the opportunities for chemists and chemical engineers to make future contributions toward understanding and improving the environment
Marine mammal populations and ocean noise : determining when noise causes biologically significant effects by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Attention has been drawn to the subject of how ocean noise affects marine mammals by a series of marine mammal strandings, lawsuits, and legislative hearings, and most recently, the report from the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy. One way to assess the impact of ocean noise is to consider whether it causes changes in animal behavior that are "biologically significant," that is, those that affect an animal's ability to grow, survive, and reproduce. This report offers a conceptual model designed to clarify which marine mammal behaviors are biologically significant for conservation purposes. The report is intended to help scientists and policymakers interpret provisions of the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act."--Publisher's description
