National Research Council, Mathematics and Physics of Emerging Biomedical Imaging
ISBN: 0309053870 | edition 1996 | PDF | 256 pages | 8 mb

This cross-disciplinary book documents the key research challenges in the mathematical sciences and physics that could enable the economical development of novel biomedical imaging devices. It is hoped that the infusion of new insights from mathematical scientists and physicists will accelerate progress in imaging. Incorporating input from dozens of biomedical researchers who described what they perceived as key open problems of imaging that are amenable to attack by mathematical scientists and physicists, this book introduces the frontiers of biomedical imaging, especially the imaging of dynamic physiological functions, to the educated nonspecialist.

National Research Council, Management and Disposition of Excess Weapons Plutonium: Reactor-Related Options
ISBN: 0309051452 | edition 1995 | PDF | 432 pages | 24 mb

Within the next decade, many thousands of U.S. and Russian nuclear weapons are slated to be retired as a result of nuclear arms reduction treaties and unilateral pledges. Hundreds of tons of plutonium and highly enriched uranium will no longer be needed for weapons purposes and will pose urgent challenges to international security.

National Research Council, Surface Temperature Reconstructions for the Last 2,000 Years
ISBN: 0309102251 | edition 2006 | PDF | 156 pages | 20 mb

In response to a request from Congress, Surface Temperature Reconstructions for the Last 2,000 Years assesses the state of scientific efforts to reconstruct surface temperature records for Earth during approximately the last 2,000 years and the implications of these efforts for our understanding of global climate change. Because widespread, reliable temperature records are available only for the last 150 years, scientists estimate temperatures in the more distant past by analyzing &#34proxy evidence,&#34 which includes tree rings, corals, ocean and lake sediments, cave deposits, ice cores, boreholes, and glaciers.

National Research Council, Putting People on the Map: Protecting Confidentiality with Linked Social-Spatial Data
ISBN: 0309104149 | edition 2007 | PDF | 177 pages | 12 mb

Precise, accurate spatial information linked to social and behavioral data is revolutionizing social science by opening new questions for investigation and improving understanding of human behavior in its environmental context. At the same time, precise spatial data make it more likely that individuals can be identified, breaching the promise of confidentiality made when the data were collected.
