This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Pursuant to section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89-651, as amended by Pub. L. 106-36; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether instruments of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instruments shown below are intended to be used, are being manufactured in the United States.
Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be filed within 20 days with the Statutory Import Programs Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Room 2104, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m., and 5 p.m., in Room 2104, at the above address.
Docket Number: 07-040. Applicant: Penn State University, 311 Deike Building, University Park, PA 16802. Instrument: Distributed Temperature Sensor, model Sentinel DTS-SR(0-5KM). Manufacturer: Sensornet Ltd., United Kingdom. Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used for a study that involves the determination of stream-aquifer interaction as related to precipitation events, and the detection of areas that build and release moisture along the hillslope. The work will involve collection of field-based physical measurements of groundwater discharge, including spatially and temporally exhaustive temperature gradients and Darcian flux calculations, to improve quantification of streambed leakage and assess the rate and scale of stream-aquifer exchange to determine controls on threshold behavior. Good temperature resolution and capability to collect data every minute to 0.1° C. accuracy are essential to the research.
