Casalinuovo, Anthony F.; Sawan, Alan (1976). Infrared Photography as an Air Pollution Surveillance Instrument, Journal of the Air Pollution Control Association. The purpose of this study was to determine the practicality of infrared photographic analysis to air pollution agencies, by the detection of plant damage from pollutants before they are visually identifiable. Results showed that photomicrographic imaging using infrared radiation should be considered a viable surveillance tool in similiar situations.   [More]  Descriptors: Air Pollution, Botany, Environment, Environmental Research

Idman, Mariatta (1977). OECD Recommends Procedures for Assessing Chemicals, OECD Observer. Previously the OECD Council recommended assessment of all chemicals before their production or sale. In this article five guidelines for this process are put forth. Guidelines include procedures for chemical analysis and surveillance, and review. This scheme is proposed as a cooperative measure among all countries to reduce chemical pollutants. Descriptors: Chemical Analysis, Chemical Industry, Environmental Standards, Evaluation

Serini, Shirley A. (1994). Power Network and Surveillance: Viewing Service as an Interactive Component of Public Relations Professionalism, Public Relations Review. Uses a case study and an interactionist perspective to explore the way in which community service draws together power elites in a community's communications network, provides a context for peer evaluation, and is an effective means of maintaining internal surveillance. Descriptors: Case Studies, Citizen Participation, Communication Research, Community Programs

Lewis, Barbara (1982). Tips on School Security, School Administrator. Vandalism prevention methods cited by school administrators and a city park director include a silent audio surveillance system; school visits at unscheduled times by a principal dwelling nearby; and prompt repair of broken equipment. Available from the American Association of School Administrators, 1801 North Moore Street, Arlington, VA 22209. Descriptors: Alarm Systems, Elementary Secondary Education, Playgrounds, Police School Relationship

Kaufer, Steve (1994). 99 Tips for Safe Schools. This pamphlet highlights 99 tips for maintaining safe schools. Areas of interest include: alarm systems and control of access, vandalism, parent education, transportation, school design, personnel training, and graffiti. The majority of the pointers deal with maintaining and implementing various forms of electronic surveillance and strategies for insuring student safety.   [More]  Descriptors: Alarm Systems, Crime Prevention, Elementary Secondary Education, Juvenile Gangs

Johnson, James S. (1981). Carcinogen Control in the Chemical Laboratory, Journal of Chemical Education. Presents general and specific guidelines for handling carcinogens. Additional topics include: definition of potential occupational carcinogens; classification of carcinogens; inventory requirements; signs and labels for materials and laboratories; decontamination and disposal procedures; medical surveillance for employees working with controlled chemicals; and purchasing and receiving of toxic materials. Descriptors: Cancer, Chemistry, College Science, Guidelines

Roberts, Richard L.; Merriam, Robert W. (1977). Nationwide School Survey Shows Regulatory Need, Journal of Environmental Health. Described are the results of a nationwide survey, conducted in 1975, to collect data concerning the extent of health authority involvement in checking school plans, inspecting construction, surveillance of school facilities; and the depth and scope of school environmental health and safety programs on a national basis.

Baylis, Paula (1975). SEER Informational Guidebook Training Aids. This book includes topics on the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results reporting of human cancer. An anatomy section describes various systems of the human body, emphasizing those sites with high incidence of cancer. A general reference section describes weights and measures, pathology and histology, diagnostic techniques, and medical prefixes and suffixes. Another section describes therapies and drugs used to treat cancer. Descriptors: Anatomy, Cancer, Diseases, Higher Education

Gerardi, Robert J. and Benedict, Gary C. (1982). A Community Approach to School Vandalism, American School and University. To fight school vandalism, a community should set up a broad-based committee for vandalism prevention. The committee might consider setting up a vandalism hotline, installing silent alarms in schools, increasing exterior school lighting and police surveillance, correcting vandalism quickly, and publicizing their efforts and the results.

Cranberg, Gilbert (1971). Cable Television and Public Safety. One of the most promising applications of cable television (CATV) is municipal surveillance of public areas for protection against crime, fire detection, control of air pollution, and traffic. Thus far, however, the CATV industry has made minimal efforts to realize the potential of CATV for community protection–the use of cable for public safety purposes has been confined to a handful of communities. For example, several Florida CATV systems operate weather bureau hotlines, Kansas has an "Emergency Alert" channel which is often used for locating lost or runaway children, a station in West Virginia has devised an efficient fire alert and public address system, closed circuit street surveillance and burglar alarm systems have been initiated in Olean, New York, and apartment house surveillance systems have been installed in Sarasota, Florida. These modest applications of cable technology for public safety purposes make it evident that considerable innovating and technological development will be necessary for some of the predictions for its use to be realized. Further, consideration will have to be given to psychological and social consequences of applications such as intense police surveillance of high crime areas. It is clear, however, that the medium holds considerable promise for public safety improvement.   [More]  Descriptors: Cable Television, Crime, Fire Protection, Information Dissemination

OECD Observer (1977). International Surveillance Mechanism for Sea Dumping of Radioactive Waste. The OECD consultation and surveillance mechanism is discussed in detail in this article. Four phases are identified and examined: (1) Notification, (2) Consultation, (3) Supervision, (4) Post-operation. This system is designed to provide the safest possible conditions for sea dumping of radioactive wastes.   [More]  Descriptors: Environmental Education, Fuels, International Programs, Natural Resources

Garramone, Gina M. (1985). Motivation and Selective Attention to Political Information Formats, Journalism Quarterly. Concludes that people selectively attend to campaign information based on its editorial format rather than its orignating format and that a surveillance/vote guidance motivation to attend to a campaign is more strongly related to degree of selectivity than is a diversion motivation.
