7 Reitze, Arnold W.Federal Control of Carbon Dioxide Emissions: What are the Options?The U.S. Supreme Court in Massachusetts v. EPA held that carbon dioxide is a pollutant under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and remanded the case to EPA. The Agency must decide whether CO2 emissions contribute to climate change. If the Agency responds affirmatively, it must meet other requirements of t...2009-08-01
8 Chodosh, Hiram E.Corruption and Its Challenges: The Battle to Stop a Universal ProblemCorruption is increasingly seen as a universal problem, deeply embedded in many national legal systems, and also transnational in nature. It is so endemic that it has generated its own special vernacular, such as Code 1,000 in Honduras (a reference to the 1,000 lempira note), mordida in Mexico...2009-09-25
9 Mallat, ChibliReconciliation in Iraq: Taking the Constitution SeriouslyReconciliation, which draws the necessary constitutional principles over which Iraqi parliamentarians are called on to vote, and the Iraqi citizens to endorse (or reject) in a national referendum, offers a far better way than any other type of reconciliation. An improved Iraqi constitution provid...2009-07-16
10 Adler, Robert W.Drought, Sustainability, and the LawResearchers and responsible officials have made considerable progress in recent years in efforts to anticipate, plan for, and respond to drought. Some of those efforts are beginning to shift from purely reactive, relief-oriented measures to programs designed to prevent or to mitigate drought impacts...2010-07-15
11 Ruple, John; Keiter, RobertPolicty Analysis of Water Availability and Use Issues for Domestic Oil Shale and Oil Sands DevelopmentABSTRACT Oil shale and oil sands resources located within the intermountain west represent a vast, and as of yet, commercially untapped source of energy. Development will require water, and demand for scarce water resources stands at the front of a long list of barriers to commercialization. Wat...2012-03
12 Hogue, Michael T.; Keiter, Robert B.; Ruple, John; Uchitel, KirstenAnalysis of Environmental, Legal, Socioeconomic and Policy Issues Critical to the Development of Commercial Oil Shale Leasing on the Public Lands in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming under the Mandates of the Energy Policy Act of 2005This report seeks to identify and evaluate the critical legal and economic policy issues in order to inform federal, state, tribal, and other decision makers, as well as affected citizens, of the likely challenges and tradeoffs inherent in implementing a commercial oilshale leasing program on the pu...2010-01
13 Digre, Kathleen B.Novel mechanism for benign essential blepharospasm.PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that the photophobia of benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) is caused by sympathetically maintained pain. METHODS: Nineteen patients with photophobia and BEB were enrolled in an unblinded prospective treatment trial. The intervention was ...Blepharospasm, Autonomic Nerve Block, Blepharospasm, Superior Cervical Ganglion, Lidocaine, Pain1999-11-15
14 Khan, Faisal HabibTransfer function mapping for a grid connected PV system using reverse synthesis techniqueMathematical modeling of power electronic converters is a historical problem. Numerous efforts have been documented in literature to model different converter topologies and their control schemes since the 1940s. Traditional modeling approaches avoid transfer function derivation due to high degree o...2013-01-01
15 Liu, FengEffects of Li doping on H-diffusion in MgH2: A first-principles studyThe effects of Li doping in MgH2 on H-diffusion process are investigated, using first-principles calculations. We have identified two key effects: (1) The concentration of H vacancy in the þ1 charge state ðVþ1 H Þ can increase by several orders of magnitude upon Li doping, which significantly in...2013-01-01
16 Henderson, Thomas C.Analysis of topographic maps for recreational purposes using decision treesIn this paper we describe a method for predicting the subjective quality of a new mountain bike route for a particular subject based on routes previously ridden and ranked by the subject. GPS tracks of the previously ridden routes are over laid on rasterized topographic maps and topographic features...2013-01-01
17 Kirby, Robert MichaelVerifying volume rendering using discretization error analysisWe propose an approach for verification of volume rendering correctness based on an analysis of the volume rendering integral, the basis of most DVR algorithms.
