One of the first government-sponsored demands for integrated assessment to support decision making in the United States is embodied in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). Over the past 25 years, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has supported federal agencies’ in evaluating health and environmental impacts as required by NEPA. Many of ORNL’s efforts have focused on complex, programmatic assessments that break new ground and require and integrate expertise from a wide range of technical disciplines. Examples of ORNL projects that illustrate the use of integrated assessment approaches include environmental documentation for: (1) the Department of the Army’s Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program,...

Collection consists of core chips acquired from the drilling of oil and gas wells. Core chips are stored either in slab boxes, bottles, envelopes, or bags.

The collection consists of cuttings that were collected from wells drilled by the petroleum industry. They consist of both washed and unwashed sets of cuttings. The vast majority are stored in sample envelopes within larger boxes.

The FGS receives 2, 3 and 4 inch bore hole core samples. The core can be spot cores - taken from specific intervals, or continuous core ¿ representing the entire length of a bore hole. Samples arrive in various containers, and many times must be reboxed for long term storage. The majority of our samples are stored in cardboard boxes, but we do have a small percentage of cores in wooden boxes and PVC. For our 2 and 3 inch cores we have boxes that hold 8-10 feet of sample, similar to traditional NQ core boxes. The boxes are made of cardboard and are assembled by folding and stapling the sides. The boxes are 25.5¿ x 13¿ x 2.5¿. Our 4 inch cores are also stored in cardboard boxes. These boxes hold 4 feet of sample and...

The cuttings collection is made up of well cuttings - rock samples that are cut by a bit in the process of well drilling and removed from the hole in the drilling mud. The samples arrive in two conditions, processed samples that have already been washed and organized in archival containers, or unprocessed samples, arriving in sampling bags which must be processed. The FGS has detailed guidelines for processing samples. This includes washing off drilling mud, drying samples, and determining how much sample to preserve. Clay samples can easily be washed away when processing samples, so an unwashed set is also kept for all samples. The standard sample size is 250-400 mg. Samples are stored by interval in paper envelopes...

This is a collection of petrographic thin sections of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock and sediment grain mounts. They are polished and unpolished, some with cover slips. A number of them are specialized paleontological or heavy mineral mounts. The collection is organized by well then interval. The collection is stored in slide storage boxes which are keep in a file cabinet. The collection is a physical collection that is currently not accessible in an electronic format however ongoing projects are creating digital images of new slides that will be added to the collection. The catalog and inventory for the collection is accessible in an Excel spreadsheet.

A collection of approximately 5,750 outcrop samples and mineral specimens is maintained by the Florida Geological Survey. These samples are cross-indexed by formation, lithology, county and location. The collection is referred to as the "M-Series." The M-Series is particularly valuable given Florida's high rate of growth and development. Surface exposures of critical lithologies have become inaccessible with the continued proliferation of roadways, shopping centers, parking lots and high-rise housing. The collection is housed in cardboard boxes and stored on static shelve units. There are 1-2 staff members associated with this collection; however they only work with the collection for less than 10% of their time...
