  • The importance of cyanobacterial toxins in drinking water sources has been highlighted by the adoption of a provisional drinking water “Guideline Value” for microcystin- LR, one of the most abundant toxins, by the World Health Organization (WHO). A number of nations have now legislated a guideline for microcystins into their drinking water regulations, with the consequent need for monitoring and analytical techniques. The Chemical Safety Committee of the WHO also has under consideration a Guideline Value for cylindrospermopsin, the other most damaging cyanobacterial toxin....

  • From the interior of the Sun, to the upper atmosphere and near-space environment of Earth, and outward to a region far beyond Pluto where the Sun’s influence wanes, advances during the past decade in space physics and solar physics—the disciplines NASA refers to as heliophysics—have yielded spectacular insights into the phenomena that affect our home in space. This report, from the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Committee for a Decadal Strategy in Solar and Space Physics, is the second NRC decadal survey in heliophysics.

  • The committee was tasked to determine the best instrumentation and procedures for measuring BFD (see Box S-1). To do this, it reviewed technical specifications, viewed demonstrations of the operation and use of current and prospective systems, and evaluated factors such as human handling variability, process transparency, and software variability judgment. The committee found that given the current clay variation, a measurement precision (standard deviation) of 0.5 mm is sufficient; instruments featuring greater precision add little practical value to the testing process.
